Orchiectomy (Testicle Removal Surgery)

How is orchiectomy performed? 

The procedure of orchiectomy is typically performed under general or spinal anesthesia. The urologist accesses the testicle through an incision in the groin. It is important to note that only the testicle is removed, while the scrotum, the pouch of skin holding the testicles, is not removed.

While orchiectomy may cause emotional and physical changes in patients, including a decrease in testosterone levels and fertility, modern medical approaches can help minimize these side effects. Before surgery, patients typically consult with a urologist to understand the procedure, potential risks and benefits of orchiectomy, and to consider possible alternatives and treatment options.  After this procedure, it is possible to implant a testicular prosthesis to compensate for the cosmetic defect.
