You may be wondering what makes the Center for Male Reproductive Medicine different. The fact is we are the only practice in the Los Angeles area that is primarily dedicated to vasectomy reversal. This focused approach allows us to deliver the highest quality of care in all of our vasectomy reversal procedures.

The Center for Male Reproductive Medicine is the practice of Dr. Philip Werthman and Dr. Cappy Rothman and has been in existence for more than 40 years. We are not a new or fly-by-night operation. Over 20,000 men have been treated at this facility over the years and have helped us build the excellent reputation that we enjoy today.
Dr. Philip Werthman's success rates are among the highest in the world. His career success rate for vasovasostomy (surgical reversal of vasectomy)is a staggering 99%, for those cases in which sperm are still present in the vasal fluid. We don't waste time with the many fads and gimmicks that other, less experienced practices market so heavily, such as laser reversal or fibrin glue. Why? These methods simply don't have anywhere near the success rates of a surgical reversal when performed by properly performed by an expert microsurgeon.
