Orchiopexy

Orchiopexy

Orchiopexy also referred to as ‘Orchidopexy’ is a surgery that helps to move an undescended or ‘Cryptorchid’ testicle into the scrotum and permanently fixes it there. Orchiopexy typically also describes the surgery used to resolve testicular torsion.

There are two conditions that may need an Orchiopexy in order to correct, undescended testicle and testicular torsion. This procedure is usually conducted in childhood to correct undescended testicles to prevent any future complications such as infertility and increased risk of testicular cancer.

Generally, the stay in the hospital is very short and most patients are released the same day, however, it depends on the patient. It usually takes a few weeks after surgery to ensure proper healing.

Benefits of Orchiopexy

Undergoing an Orchiopexy may have a number of benefits such as prevention of certain ailments as mentioned herewith:

  • Hernias: This is when tissue bulges through the muscle in the lower belly
  • Injuries: An out-of-place testicle is more likely to get damaged
  • Testicular torsion: This is when the cord that carries semen to the penis gets twisted up and cuts off blood flow to the testicles.

 


 


More About Treatment

The goal of treatment is to move the undescended testicle to its proper location in the scrotum. Treatment before 1 year of age might lower the risk of complications of an undescended testicle, such as infertility and testicular cancer. Earlier is better, but it's recommended that surgery takes place before the child is 18 months old.
