Looking for clinics that offer vasectomies? We’ve got you covered, as we’ve outlined the top services for a vasectomy in Auckland here for you.
To give you a heads up, we’ll first talk about the average cost of vasectomy surgeries in Auckland. Then, we’ll present to you our top list of clinics, our opinions on their pros and cons, and some patient reviews.
Without further tarrying, let’s start!
How Much Does a Vasectomy Cost in Auckland?
A vasectomy service consists of three stages: pre-operative consultation, the surgery itself, and post-operative care.
The average cost of having a vasectomy in Auckland is $487.75. We didn’t factor in one clinic’s price in that median since it’s an exception.
So, here are the prices for the best vasectomies in Auckland. The clinic whose price quote we didn’t include in calculating our average was CityMed, since it has an unusually high price of $600.
|Snip Vasectomy Clinic||$495||Newmarket, Henderson Takapuna, and Manukau|
|Auckland Vasectomy Clinic||$480||Ellerslie-Panmure|
|Hillsborough Medical Centre||$480||Hillsborough|
Anyway, the price of the procedure includes the doctor, nurse, medical equipment, and theatre or room. The prices above are all-inclusive, in other words, so you don’t have to worry about extra expenses that may surface.
It would also help you save money if you are a Southern Cross policyholder. Auckland Vasectomy Clinic is one of the Southern Cross affiliated providers on our list.
Furthermore, other clinics, such as The Cooper Clinic and Snip Vasectomy Clinic, can totally or partially fund your surgery provided you have medical insurance.

A vasectomy is a sensitive procedure and it’s important to make sure your doctor is qualified and well-equipped to handle it before you make a booking.
At Snip Vasectomy Clinic, this is what you’ll be getting, as former patients can attest. It’ll just take about 15 minutes and that’s all she wrote—no pain, no discomfort whatsoever.
The nurse will have a phone consultation with you first to brief you on the vasectomy, check your health condition, and answer questions you may have.
Their procedure is modern and doesn’t involve the use of a scalpel. The doctor uses the Hyfrecator to close the ends of the sperm tube without needing to cut or stitch internally.
Once the procedure is over, you don’t have to come back. And you can pay them by cash, EFTPOS, credit card, or online through Humm.
Except for one in our survey, clients have been satisfied with the service. They described the staff as non-judgmental, friendly, and professional.
One patient shared his experience at Snip Vasectomy:
“Very friendly and non-judgmental staff. Short, easy, simple procedure, and a lot of information on how to heal up properly. Far less scary than I thought. 100% would recommend!”
Also, here’s a snippet from another patient’s review:
“As for the procedure, it’s fast and basically painless. I was expecting some pain even if only dull or lingering but there wasn’t any for me, totally fine. The doctor and assistant nurse were great, they made sure I knew everything I needed to and kept some general conversation as things were going so everything felt comfortable.
After it was done I was able to get up and walk out like normal, I expected to feel like I had been kicked or something but no, it was fine. Follow the doctor’s instructions of course, ice on and off and take it easy for a few days. Anything you need to know, you can call snip and they will answer any questions you have.”

Hillsborough Medical Centre offers a broad variety of services conducted by professionally registered doctors. They are either fellows or members of the RNZCGP.
The clinic offers one of the best vasectomy services in Auckland. The reason is that they are Cornerstone accredited, which means they perform the job well above standards.
The vasectomy is a bit different at this clinic. The doctors will inject your arm with a mild sedative and also tie and stitch the ends of the vas deferens.
Additionally, Dr John Russell does not use the no-scalpel technique. He believes it would not confer any benefit at all as the scrotum still has to be incised.
However, if you aren’t sure, you can book a physical or virtual consultation with a doctor. That will help you know whether getting a vasectomy in this clinic would fit your needs.
According to patients, everyone was friendly and professional, from the receptionist to the doctor. Here are a couple of reviews they wrote of Hillsborough Medical Centre:
One patient named Harshil commented:
“I have been going to Hillsborough Medical Centre since I was born, and have seen every general practitioner that’s worked there. A true 1st class clinic with kind, curtious , and the most professional doctor’s.”
Also, another patient said this:
“Top class medical centre. The customer service is simply excellent and the doctors very experienced and reliable.”
