We can’t quite believe how quick we have become pregnant and after eighteen years after the original vasectomy we felt there was little hope. However, you remained very positive right from the fist clinic appointment and thanks to your brilliant surgical skill our dreams have come true.We are both so grateful for your help and specifically your positivity. We would have no hesitation in recommending you to other couples considering this procedure.Again many thanks.D.D.

* Hi BevJust to update you and Mr Harris regarding my reversal performed in March this year.As my vasectomy was performed 18 years ago our biggest risk of failure was a potential blockage. We worked hard to resolve this, which was lots of fun and were rewarded with a pretty good sperm count at the 12 week test carried out in June.We missed our first real opportunity to conceive in July due to being away on holiday, however, on our first planned attempt in August we were successful……. We are pleased to announce that our baby is due April 2012.Emma is now getting over her morning sickness and at 16 weeks is now starting to show, we are both enjoying the pregnancy experience and can’t wait for the new arrival. We will keep you posted next year.Please feel free to post on your website.All the best S.R.

* My husband had a reversal August last year after having had a vasectomy for 17 years. On March 26th with very little trying we had a beautiful baby boy!!! We honestly thought we would have to have fertility treatment before we could have a baby – he was an amazing surprise! Thank you! xx

* Dear Bev, Just contacting you to announce our great news that my partner Christine(aged 35) and I(aged 53) attended our first pre natal scan on 31/12/13 which has confirmed that Christine was 13 weeks into her pregnancy at the scan date and our first baby together is due to arrive on the 8th July. My operation date was 24/10/12 which suggests that conception took just under 12 months from the operation date. Would you please inform Mr Harris and his team of our fantastic news and thank everyone at the Park Bmi for the excellent care shown to us both whilst we were there. A special thank you goes to Mr Harris for his brilliant surgical skills which,  goes without saying, we will be forever in his dept. Yours sincerely

* We are delighted to let you know that our little bundle of joy XXX, arrived on Tuesday 15th July at 9.19am weighing 9lb 12oz. Mother and baby doing really well after 16hrs of labour and a visit to theatre for a forceps procedure. Hope the photo that I’ve attached is useable. Please thank Mr Harris and his team once again for helping us to realise our dream.B.K.

*I cannot express my gratitude enough to Mr Harriss, Catherine and team, I was 17 years post vasectomy. Having under taken a reversal at another clinic In Mar 2014 (Dr Dawson) I was informed that only one side was successfully connected as the other side was too short! We met Mr Harriss on the morning of the Op Sep 14. After the consultation he labeled me as his ‘challenge of the day’ ! Post Op we were given the great news that the Op was successful and that he had managed to connect BOTH sides i’m not sure where he managed to find the missing tube from. The upshot was that my partner conceived on what must have been our first attempt ETA 03 June! To be honest we still cant believe it how lucky we have been, lucky to come across such a talented man. You guys are THE BEST.
