Centres of Excellence -> Urology -> Hydrocelectomy


Hydrocelectomy, also known as hydrocele repair surgery, is a medical procedure aimed at removing fluid around the testicle and preventing its recurrence. Hydrocele is a condition in which fluid accumulates around the testicle, leading to swelling and a sensation of heaviness in the scrotum.

Procedure and recovery 

The mentioned surgery is typically performed under general or spinal anesthesia, depending on the patient's preferences and physician recommendations. The procedure involves removing excess fluid and closing any openings or defects that allow fluid accumulation.

Before the surgery, the patient usually undergoes a thorough evaluation, including a physical examination and possibly additional tests such as ultrasound or blood tests. This is important to establish an accurate diagnosis and assess the extent of the problem.

After the surgery, the patient will undergo a specific recovery period during which it will be important to follow the doctor's instructions. This may include using a compression bandage or wearing supportive underwear to reduce swelling and support the scrotum during the healing process.

Most patients experience relief after the surgery, with a reduction in symptoms and an improvement in quality of life. After the operation, regular check-ups with the doctor are mandatory to monitor the condition and ensure the long-term health of the testicles.
