What is involved in a surgical repair for a varicocile?

I have to have a surgical repair for a varicocile.

It's normally performed as day-surgery, meaning you'll be able to go home afterward. A typical procedure involves a small incision, some stitches, and lots of ice afterward to reduce swelling.

It is a surgical repair of the arteries involved with your testicles. So you will be wanting to find a very good urlogical surgeon. The surgery restores blood flow away from the testicles and through the vas defen. The less invasive surgeory is using robotic. This is harder to find, so you will be wanting a second opinion and referral.

The urologist will make an incision near your testicles and use instruments to drain and tie off the vein that is engorged, causing your varicocele.

In this type of varicocele treatment, the surgeon makes an incision above the scrotum (or higher in the flank area) and cuts through the layers of tissues.
