Orchidopexy

Surgery for undescended testicles

A simple surgical procedure to move undescended testicles to their correct position in the scrotum

Payment options avaliable: This treatment offers fixed price packages

About

In the womb, a baby boy's testicles form within his abdomen before they descend into the scrota. Sometimes one testicle, or both, will remain inside the abdomen after birth. An orchidopexy is a simple procedure to correct the condition and return the testicle to its normal position in the scrotum.

Orchidopexy Fixed Price Packages

At HCA UK we recognise the importance of giving our patients peace of mind. That's why our guaranteed fixed prices are fully inclusive, with no hidden extras.

Need to know

  • What happens icon plus

    The operation is carried out under a general anaesthetic. It should take between 45 minutes and one hour. Your consultant will usually carry out the procedure through a small cut on the groin and a small cut on the scrotum. They will free up the testicle and bring it down into the scrotum. If the consultant finds a small, underdeveloped testicle that is unlikely to function, they will usually remove it.
  • How to prepare icon plus

    Your consultant will talk you through the procedure, including any possible risks and side effects, answer any questions you may have and let you know how long beforehand your child should avoid eating and drinking.
  • Afterwards icon plus

    This is usually carried out as a day case so your child should be able to go home the same day. You'll be advised on how to care for the area around the cuts, and when your child can return to their normal routine. In older children, it's usual to go back to school about a week after this type of procedure, and they should avoid playing sports or riding a bicycle for six weeks.
