“Our 4th baby, Kari was born April 2nd, 2017!”
I had a vasectomy in 2013 after the birth of our 3rd child. However, my wife and I changed our minds! We moved out of the city and got 10 acres and a beautiful new home in Cloquet MN. We started thinking about 1 more baby. I decided to get the reversal done. I researched and looked up Dr. Shu and E-Z vasectomy. I had my reversal done in April 2016, by September we found out we were expecting! Our 4th baby, Kari was born April 2nd, 2017. Thank you to the wonderful team at One Stop Medical Center. Oscar L, MN
“I am 14 Weeks Pregnant Come September!”
Hello, I just wanted to send a quick follow-up in regards to my husband’s vasectomy reversal he had with Dr. Shu in February, 2017. We started trying to get pregnant shortly after our wedding in June and low and behold I am 14 weeks pregnant come September! So I would say the procedure was quite successful! Please pass on our thank you to Dr. Shu. We are very appreciative:-)
(here is the formal testimonial she sent a few weeks later: My husband was a patient of Dr. Shu’s in February of 2017. He underwent a vasectomy reversal. We began trying to conceive a child 4 months post procedure and I became pregnant our first month of trying. We are due to have a baby 13 months post reversal. We had a good experience at the clinic. Dr. Shu was very professional. He sat down with us and explained the procedure ahead of time and followed up with us immediately afterwards. We found it a very reasonable cost to have this procedure done at the One Stop Medical Center.)

“I’m Thrilled to Announce that We Welcomed a Healthy Baby Girl to Our Family on June 5, 2017..”
Dear Dr. Shu,
My husband underwent a reversal procedure with you in July 2016. Shortly thereafter, we became pregnant and I’m thrilled to announce that we welcomed a healthy baby girl to our family on June 5, 2017. I just want to relay how happy we are with you. From our first consult visit, actual procedure and then of course the fact that it worked and we now have a beautiful baby girl in our family – we are very pleased! We had met with another doctor prior to meeting with you and the experience with you and your office was significantly better. Additionally, I researched other doctors around the twin cities who perform reversals and was much more enthusiastic about your experience and background than the others. I believe our experience in the office with you also echoes my research.
Thank you so very much for giving us the opportunity to welcome another member to our family. We feel so incredibly blessed and are so appreciative of the services that you offer. Big brother, Carson, adores his little sister (pic attached)! 😊
MANY THANKS!! R Myers, MN
“We Can’t Say Enough Great Things About Dr. Shu and His Staff.”
I had a vasectomy in 2006. In 2014 we were researching vasectomy reversals, my wife found Dr. Shu and we contacted his office. What I liked about Dr. Shu’s method was he performs the procedure under local anesthesia. Since we live 200 miles from the Twin Cities, we were able to do a consultation and the procedure at the same time. We had done a lot of reading up to this point so we knew what to expect and Dr. Shu gave a brief description and got right to work. I thought there was only slightly more pain than my vasectomy and the recovery period was essentially the same.
I requested a semen analysis after a year of no pregnancy and there was virtually no sperm present at this point even though there was after the reversal was initially done. Dr. Shu called me to explain and offered a second reversal. In September of 2016, I had a second reversal done. This time was longer and more painful with a longer recovery period, but so worth it. We found out my wife was pregnant in April of 2017 and now she’s at 21 weeks and doing great.
We can’t say enough great things about Dr. Shu and his staff. Everyone was helpful and friendly and very prompt to respond if we had a question or request.
My best advice would be to do your own research, watch youtube videos, read articles. The procedure is done laying flat on your back, you can’t see what’s going on at any point so knowing what to expect put me at ease. During the procedure, there’s music on and I was allowed to keep my phone so I was entertained. Dr. Shu works very fast but does have time to chat while he works if you want. There is enough local anesthetic to deaden everything and the doctor does a good job of asking if you need more. I was sent home with a list of instructions and a prescription for pain meds that I never needed.
The recovery is essentially the same as a vasectomy. Ice on the whole situation for three days and then occasionally after that. This was my chance to sit in a chair all day, watch tv, and ask my loving wife to bring me things. You can expect bruising and swelling for a while but it gives you something to brag to your buddies about. I was able to work after 3 days and 5 days respectfully. R. Bennett, Iowa
“I Highly Recommend Dr. Shu and His Wonderful, Friendly Staff.”
My husband and I have been married for 15 years and have three beautiful children together. Thinking we were done, he had a vasectomy a few years ago after my daughter was born, but I continued to think I wanted just one more. My sweet and wonderful husband eventually agreed to have a reversal done, and after much research we chose to travel as a family from our home in Shawano, WI to have a reversal performed by Dr. Shu in mid-June 2017.
My husband was very nervous about the procedure (and is admittedly, pretty wimpy when it comes to any physical discomfort) but said that Dr. Shu made him laugh and was very good at distracting him.
Unfortunately, it was a difficult repair and only one side was able to be repaired at all (and even that side was “iffy”—the surgeon who had done the original procedure had really “done a good job”). Even so, Dr. Shu spent a long time working on the one “workable” side, however. We went home a little disheartened though, thinking our chances would be pretty low, but glad we tried.
I had my first ovulation cycle (after my husband’s recovery) in mid-July, and was delighted to find out that I was pregnant a couple weeks later (Aug. 11). We are overjoyed and so thankful for Dr. Shu and his obvious skill, patience and commitment to making this work. I highly recommend him and his wonderful, friendly staff. We will send pictures in late April, when baby #4 is due. 🙂 Thank you again, Dr. Shu! Edwards, J & A, WI
“We are Currently 4 Weeks and 2 Days Pregnant.”
Great news! We are currently 4 weeks and 2 days pregnant. Thank you for all of your support and a big thank you to Dr. Shu for making this possible. We will send you an update when our baby is born in April, 2018. Sincerely, Reinaldo O, MN
“My Wife and I Have Just Found Out We are Pregnant”
I had a reversal in August 2016, My wife and I have just found out we are pregnant. Thank you. James S. MI
“My Wife Is Already Pregnant”
Good morning. This is James N. I was there in January, 2017 for a vasectomy reversal. Doctor Steven Shu did a good Job. My wife is already pregnant. I hope He receives this message.
Sincerely, James N. MN
“He is a True Artist and Blessing”
Hello, I wanted to say that we are so excited to let you all know that Dr. Shu performed my husband’s vasectomy reversal in September 2016. I was pregnant by Halloween and I had a miscarriage. We still were not at the point to go for a semen analysis but my doctors were not too positive about another conception from a vasectomy reversal and low and behind we were pregnant again by New Years. We are expecting 9/9/17 and I am enclosing a couple 20 week ultrasound pictures of baby!
Your office was amazing and for my 40th birthday I intend on coming to Dr. Shu for body work and I am recommending him to everyone notating that he is worth the flight to Minnesota if they are not local! Doctor Shu was not sure my husbands vasectomy reversal was going to work because of how rough cut the vas was from the previous doctor. He is a true artist and blessing.
Thank you guys so much! Zach & Sam O, MN
“The whole experience was great from start to finish!”
I was in your office in January for a vasectomy reversal. The whole experience was great from start to finish. Dr. Shu was friendly and cordial. He even made efforts to engage me in small talk during the procedure to make the whole process easier. Dr. Shu explained the procedure and after care thoroughly and answered any questions that we had. I would highly recommend Dr. Shu to anyone seeking this type of procedure. Thank you Dr. Shu. Sincerely, Brian L, NC
“Thanks so much for making this possible for us!”
Just wanted to give you a quick update. So, it’s been exactly 3 months since my reversal. We left the surgery prepared for the worst since you said it was only about a 50/50 chance it would work and it was one of the more difficult surgeries you’ve done. But alas, the first analysis at 6 weeks showed good quantity at 25 million, but low motility, but still a success. We figured we had 6 months to a year to get the count up before we had any real chance at conceiving. But much to our surprise, we just found out we are 6 weeks pregnant! So that means it was working just 7 or 8 weeks post surgery! We are shocked! She claims it’s mine, so you did something right!
Thanks so much for making this possible for us! We absolutely will send pictures. 🙂 We’re thrilled! Rick P, IA
“Can’t say thanks enough!”
Hello, I had a vasectomy reversal done on February 9th of 2016 and on February 4th of 2017 my wife and I had our first baby since the reversal. Can’t say thanks enough. Sincerely, David M, Wisconsin
“Here is the proof that it really does work”
Thank you again for the reversal. Here is the proof that it really does work.
“Thank you for everything!!! “
Hey Dr. Shu, we didn’t go to a lab for a formal semen analysis but as you can see we don’t need one. Thank you for everything!!! Alex V, Nevada
“2 pregnancy test show she is pregnant. Thank you for your help in making this happen!”
Dr. Shu, just wanted to give you a quick update on my reversal that was done the 3rd of June. All swelling and most all bruising has been gone for quite some time now. For the most part I feel the same as I did before the procedure. It still feels like my spermacle is still a bit larger than it was before, and I’m still just as sensitive on my left side as I was before too.
That being said, my wife missed her period at the beginning of August and 2 pregnancy test show she is pregnant. We have the first doctor appointment in 2 weeks. Thank you for your help in making this happen! T. O. Minnesota
“My Daughter is now 2 months old. Thank you!!!!”
“We are now super excited about our new baby girl, due Nov 2016!!!!”
My partner had his Vasectomy reversed after seven years by Dr. Shu last August. We are now super excited about our new baby girl, due Nov 2016!!!! The experience was very pleasant, considering what it was, and he was comfortable during and after the procedure. Thank you, Dr. Shu!!! B. L. Montana

“14 yr Old Vasectomy was Successfully Reversed!”
Thanks you for contacting me with a follow up. I have great news. The reversal was successful with a near normal count present in the sample I provided to my doctor:) 14 yr old vasectomy was successfully reversed. We definitely have so much great feedback to share about Dr. Shu. I knew from my hand shake with him that he had the perfect tools to tackle any job. Thanks again. J.S. Minnesota
“We cannot Thank You Enough and We are Extremely Happy.”
Its been a busy fall so far. I came to Minnesota and got (un-snipped) in march this year. 4 years prior i had gotten a vasectomy. The surgery was painless. My recovery went great and within 3 to 4 days I felt more like normal than i did 2 weeks after my original vasectomy. We were intimate much earlier than we were advised to. A month later we took a pregnancy test outta nowhere and boom! Pregnant. And now were just over 7 weeks. Were very excited and look forward to keeping you all updated with the latest. We cannot thank you enough and we are extremely happy. J.M., Michigan
“We are Pretty Excited about That!”
My wife became pregnant in April after having the reversal done in February. She is due with our third child in January. We are pretty excited about that! H.T. Minnesota
“It Seems Like a Miracle!”
Hi Dr. Shu, I hope the tendinitis in your arm has improved. I am the patient from NY who came to you for a V-reversal this past November.
You were unable to reconnect both vas and your only option was to do a diagonal reattachment of one. The healing process went very well and after waiting the recommended period for the inflammation to subside and the full repair to take hold, we confirmed my wife’s pregnancy on Monday after our FIRST attempt.
I am amazed and thank you for being such a gifted and skilled practitioner who made this possible!
It seems like a miracle!
God bless you and your family with many graces,
Angelo C, New York
“New Baby in March 2016”
My husband TJ had a reversal done by Dr. Shu last Sept. or Oct. 2014. It had been around 10 years since the vasectomy was originally done. The experience was great at the office and we can proudly announce that we are expecting a new baby in March 2016. I am extremely glad that we came to your office. Thanks. Lori J, Minnesota
“The Reversal Procedure was Well Done. I would Highly Recommend Dr. Shu”
I had done my vasectomy done just over 10 years ago in Canada, and We decided to have more kids and try to find option for reversal in Canada. It was costly and appointments were not available less than 6 months. I googled for clinic in USA and went through many sites and reviews and decided to go with Dr. Shu, reason his fee was reasonable, reviews were good and he gave me date next month. So I flew from Canada and got my reversal done in January 2015, Overall I had good experience. Staff was very friendly and he is very professional. Procedure took about 4 hrs and I felt no pain at all during and after surgery. I got my semen result today and the count is just like a normal guy. Local Doctor said procedure was well done. I would highly recommend Dr. Shu. Mazhar M, Canada
“If you are looking to have a reversal, I would recommend Dr. Shu”
After the birth of our second child I had gotten a vasectomy. About 3 to 4 years later we thought about another child. My wife had found Dr. Shu, after about 6 to 7 months we are now pregnant. If you are looking to have a reversal I would recommend Dr. Shu. – J. D. Minnesota
“There are no words to describe what a wonderful experience I had at Dr Shu’s clinic. “
There are no words to describe what a wonderful experience I had at Dr Shu’s clinic. The atmosphere was warm and professional and all of the staff were very nice. The vasectomy reversal procedure itself was a breeze and there was almost no pain or discomfort during the process. I was afraid of how it may feel because my original vasectomy done by my family care doctor was very painful. I would recommend anyone to Dr Shu for a vasectomy or reversal in a heartbeat. He’s an expert and it shows in his work. The reversal was a success verified by the presence of sperm in my semen sample a month later. Thanks Dr Shu! – Dan D. Minnesota
We had the reversal done in June and started trying to get pregnant in September. We just found out last night on our second month of trying, we’re pregnant! Thank you so much!!! – Matt A. South Dakota
“I would highly recommend One Stop Medical Staff!”
Dr. Shu and his staff made me feel very comfortable and relaxed during my vasectomy reversal. The procedure did not take long and I had no pain after. I would highly recommend One Stop Medical Staff! – Josh G. Minnesota
“It is a great place to go and get procedures done”
I just wanted to write and say it is a great place to go and get procedures done. The people are nice and treat you good. The facility is easy to access and the doctors office is relaxing. Thanks for everything.– Matt K. Minnesota
“Amazed at Dr.Shu’s level of skill and compassion with the whole process of Vasectomy Reversal”
When I went to get a vasectomy at my local clinic it was like torture. Literally. My decision to consider a vasectomy reversal was therefore a hard choice. You can’t believe how happy I am that I found Dr.Shu and the Procedure Clinic. The doctor and his staff were all very friendly and knowledgeable and the procedure was a breeze. There was next to no pain at all, just a couple tingles. I am still amazed at Dr.Shu’s level of skill and compassion with the whole process. I can’t say enough good things about the Procedure Clinic. It’s a total gem. The procedure was a success and although I haven’t tried for more kids yet it’s great to know that it’s my option. – Daniel D. Minnesota
“You have golden hands and a big heart!”
I am an RN in the ICU of one of the largest metro hospitals. I have had numerous cosmetic surgeries as well as medical procedures performed by Dr. Shu. I am continuously amazed at the quality of care, amount of concern and unending patience extended to me despite the endless questions about each and every mark on my skin and just every minor concern in general. Nobody ever makes me feel that my concerns and questions are anything but important. Dr. Shu’s pre-operative meetings are informative, relaxing and I leave the office with a total lack of concerns and questions. You have golden hands and a big heart to go with them as you extend constant compassion and display endless patience. It does not go unnoticed that you listen to your patients and manage to perform miracles even when they request you work with a budget. I know how much you did for me and it is more than appreciated. So an ends my survey, but what I hope will never be an end to my relationship with the One Stop Medical Center.
