Non-scalpel Vasectomies

Ancora is now offering non-scalpel vasectomies to our patients, and those of other practices who wish to refer patients in to us.  Dr Mubark Jajja is our vasectomist, and has been carrying out these vasectomies since last year.  The non-scalpel vasectomy is a new method of vasectomy which is: 

    A quick and simple procedure

    No scalpel involved

    No stitches necessary

    Less painful than scalpel technique

    Only a 1 in 2000 chance of not being sterile

Ancora patients wishing to be considered for this procedure should make an appointment for vasectomy counselling with Dr Jajja.

Detuyll Street Development

The long-awaited expansion to and refurbishment of our Detuyll Street surgery is almost complete.  We need to thank our patients for tolerating the disturbance caused to normal working whilst this has been underway - we are sure that you will think it has been worthwhile, once you see the finished product. 

We would also like to thank our neighbours on Detuyll Street for any inconvenience they have been caused - thank you for your patience.  

The new extension comprises of a new patient entrance, reception, toilets and waiting area.  A back office, interview room, treatment room and two new doctors’ rooms complete the new build.  

Alterations have been made to the existing building to provide an OAD counselling room (Opioid and Analgesia Dependency), a meeting room, additional doctors’ room, as well as modernisation of the pre-existing doctors rooms, treatment room and toilets.  

Below are some photos of the development in progress:
