World Vasectomy Day: Supporting the Man’s Role in Family Planning

For the third year in a row, UGNJ will be supporting World Vasectomy Day, an international effort involving over 500 physicians from every continent and over thirty countries.   The goal is to raise awareness of a man’s role in family planning.    The event takes place on Friday, November 13 and will be headquartered in Nusa Dua, Bali.

 The event started in 2013 as an effort led by Urologist Doug Stein in Tampa, FL who reached out to urologists initially across the nation and then to practitioners around the globe to make the idea a reality.  In this construct, vasectomy is not just looked at as a method of birth control, and not just as a way for men to help control their and their family’s future, but also as another way to help control the carbon footprint of people upon the planet.

 Since its inception, the Urology Group of New Jersey, of which Dr. Seaman is a member,  has supported efforts in excellence with respect to urologic patient care.    UGNJ has put energy into superior care for prostate cancer, kidney stone disease, incontinence, erectile dysfunction, male reproductive medicine and other diseases and disorders.   UGNJ believes vasectomy to be a readily accomplished, reliable cost effective means of male birth control and is proud to be a sponsor of World Vasectomy Day.
