Contraceptives for Women & Men

Advanced Solutions and Care

Burdett Birth Center is proud to have a state-of-the-art surgical suite staffed by specially trained registered nurses who will work closely with your physician to provide you with the best care possible.

Your physician may offer the following contraceptive procedures at Burdett Birth Center:

Tubal ligation, often referred to as having your “tubes tied,” is a surgical procedure in which a woman’s fallopian tubes are blocked, tied or cauterized to prevent eggs from reaching the uterus for fertilization. Tubal ligation is considered a permanent method of birth control.

Essure is a minimally invasive procedure in which your physician places soft, flexible inserts through the body’s pathways (vagina, cervix, and uterus) and into your fallopian tubes to form a natural barrier.

A vasectomy is a minor surgical procedure used by urologic surgeons to make a man sterile. It is one of the most popular forms of contraception, and is regarded as safe, simple and highly effective.


To inquire about our sterilization services, please contact your health care provider.
