Orchidopexy is a procedure carried out on boys to correct an undescended testicle. The aim is to bring the testicle down and fix it in the scrotum.
The doctor first makes two incisions – one in the skin crease in the groin and the second in the scrotum. Sometimes it’s necessary to use a special tube with a light and camera (laparoscope) to locate the testicle. This is inserted through a third small incision in the belly button. Once the testicle has been located it is brought down and fixed in the scrotum using dissolvable stitches.
The procedure usually takes about an hour and the boy will be asleep for the duration.
