MICROSCOPIC VARICOCELECTOMY

WHAT IS MICROSCOPIC VARICOCELECTOMY?

Varicocelectomy is the surgical removal of swollen veins in the scrotum called varicoceles. In cases where varicoceles causes pain or infertility, a surgery is performed to remove them. A microscopic varicocelectomy procedure involves using a microscope to surgically repair the enlarged veins through tiny incisions (one inch or less).

ADVANTAGES OF MICROSCOPIC VARICOCELECTOMY

  • The blood vessels going to and from the testicles are very small. So, using a microscope during varicocelectomy procedure helps the surgeon find the vein that need to be removed while preserving the arteries that bring blood to the testicles.
  • This procedure also prevents swelling due to fluid buildup around the testicles after surgery.
  • This procedure is usually done as an outpatient. So, the patient can go home on the same day.
