Although men in New Zealand have a very high rate of uptake of vasectomy, women still often seek permanent forms of contraception.
The established procedure is called a Laparoscopic Sterilisation (done with 'keyhole surgery') and it makes the Fallopian tubes become blocked to prevent the egg and sperm from meeting. Anil will assess patients thoroughly and this includes discussion of the alternatives in detail, so that the decision to have a permanent sterilisation is made carefully.
A newer method of female permanent contraception is hysteroscopic sterilisation that can be done under local anaesthetic. This involves blocking the Fallopian tubes via a small telescope that is placed inside the uterus without any cuts or incisions.
Anil is a very kind-hearted person, who is attentive, listens, and genuinely cares about you as a patient. He works hard to acknowledge and understand your perspective around other aspects of your life, in order to determine an appropriate plan forward for medical care and recovery. I'm really grateful to have had Anil on my team. Thanks so much!

I cannot thank Dr Sharma and Anne enough for their kind, compassionate and life-saving care. Anne went out of her way to find me an appointment when I was in a bind. Dr Sharma was amazing from the get-go, listened to my concerns, thoroughly explained my situation and immediately provided me with top notch medical care. I will forever be grateful.
