what is a bisectomy?
to divide a line (or other geometric form) in half.
omy – surgical suffix – meaning to cut.
Bisectomy – to cut something in half (surgically).
I have never heard of such a term being used before.
I have heard of a “HEMICORPRALRECTOMY” – I’m not sure that’s spelled correctly – where a person is cut in half because the lower half of their body is trapped, severely damaged or gangrenous, or half of their body is infected with inoperable cancer.
I must agree with the above answerer, you probably mean a vasectomy – where the vas defrans in the male genetalia are cut so that sperm cannot travel from the testicles to the urethra – it is a birth-control method and does not prevent STDs in any way, shape, or form.
A vasectomy is an operation that makes a man permanently unable to get a woman pregnant. It involves cutting the 2 tubes called vas deferens so that sperm can no longer get into the semen.
A vasectomy of any type ranks among the most effective means of protection from pregnancy. Although no procedure is totally safe or effective, the failure rate for a vasectomy is less than one percent. (By comparison, the failure rate for latex condoms is 12 percent or more; for diaphragms, it’s 18 percent.) Couples who want a highly reliable and permanent form of contraception often opt for a vasectomy where the success rate is over 99 percent
That is a surgical procedure which renders a man barren by eliminating the path by which sperm enter the semen.
Male sterilisation operation in which each vas deferens is cut and the ends separated to prevent the passage of sperm.
