Reproductive surgery is surgery in the field of reproductive medicine. It can be used for contraception, e.g. in vasectomy, wherein the vasa deferentia of a male are severed, but is also used plentifully in assisted reproductive technology.

A reproductive surgeon is an obstetrician-gynecologist or urologist who specializes in reproductive surgery. Reproductive surgeries will be referred to based on biological sex, and terms such male and female will be used to denote to men and women respectively.
