Circumcision is the removal of the foreskin of the penis. The foreskin is trimmed away and the edges are sewn using small dissolvable stitches. Circumcision revision is an uncommon procedure performed due to unsatisfactory results with the original circumcision.
An undescended testicle is a testicle that hasn’t moved into its proper position in the scrotum before birth. Orchiopexy is a surgery to move an undescended testicle into the scrotum and permanently fix it there. It typically also describes the surgery used to resolve testicular torsion. Testicular torsion occurs when the spermatic cord twists, cutting off the blood supply to the testicle.
Orchiectomy is a surgical procedure in which one or both testicles are removed. The surgery is typically performed as treatment for testicular cancer, in some cases of testicular torsion, and is sometimes used in the management of advanced prostate cancer.
Incision and Drainage
An abscess is a confined collection of pus surrounded by inflamed tissue. Abscesses are formed when the skin is invaded by microorganisms. Dr. Huffer and his team use a procedure called incision and drainage to remove scrotal abscesses. During the procedure the scrotum is incised and abscess or hematoma is located in the scrotal space. Using blunt dissection, pus is drained.
A hydrocelectomy is an operation to treat a hydrocele. An incision is made in the scrotum and the testicle containing the hydrocele is lifted out. The sac is then removed and the remaining tissue edges are stitched back. The tissue edges then heal onto themselves and the surrounding vessels naturally reabsorb any fluid produced.
A spermatocelectomy is an operation to remove a spermatocele from the epididymis of a testicle. An incision is made in the scrotum and the testicle with its attached spermatocele is lifted out. The spermatocele is then removed from the epididymis and any bleeding areas are sealed off.
Varicocelectomy is a surgery performed to remove those enlarged veins. The procedure is done to restore proper blood flow to your reproductive organs.
