Testicle Removal Surgery

There can be a number of reasons why testicle removal surgery may be an option for you. If you have been affected by testicular cancer, have issues with your prostate, or you simply want a cosmetic change, then testicle removal surgery is a good option. The removal of the testicles, also called orchiectomy, stops the production of testosterone and is an attractive option for transgender individuals who wish to stop taking testosterone blocking medications.

How We Do Testicle Removal Surgery

Testicle removal surgery involves not only the removal of the testicle, but also of the spermatic cord. You may choose to have just one or both testicles removed at once. While you are anaesthetized, Dr. Michael K. Obeng will first make a small incision above your pubic area. The testicle is then pushed up and out through the opening. One the testicle is removed and all blood vessels are sealed, the incision is closed using stiches or staples. The entire process takes approximately one hour.
