Orchiectomy Surgeons in India
Increasingly, however, many expatriates are choosing to visit India for orchiectomy surgeons because of the low cost, high quality healthcare services that the country can offer. Orchiectomy, also known as Orchidectomy or Castration is a surgical procedure to remove one or both testicles in men. Testicles are sex organs in the males that produce sperms and testosterone. If the patient has a cancer of the testicle, or has suffered any injury or trauma to the testicle, then orchiectomy is needed. It is the treatment of choice for early testicular cancer. Prostate cancer is known to regress after surgical removal of testicles as the source of testosterone is removed. The surgeons of orchiectomy in India are extremely professional and experienced and they provide treatment at cities like Mumbai, Delhi, Pune, and Chennai etc.
Orchiectomy, also known as Orchidectomy or Castration is a surgical procedure to remove one or both testicles in men. Testicles are sex organs in the males that produce sperms and testosterone. Orchiectomy will make you sterile and may reduce your sex drive due to loss of testosterone. If you have cancer of the testicle, if you have suffered any injury or trauma to the testicle or if you have advanced prostate cancer that might have spread to the testes, then you are an ideal candidate for Orchiectomy. Cryptorchidism or Undescended Testes has a higher risk of testicular cancer. This increased risk does not change even after the surgery is performed to move the testicles down in the scrotum. In some high-risk candidates, a prophylactic Orchiectomy might be indicated. It is important for your physician to exclude orchitis before performing Orchiectomy. Orchiectomy is performed under general anesthesia, prior hospitalization may or may not be necessary. The lower abdomen and scrotum will be shaved and thoroughly cleaned before the operation. Either general anesthesia or local anesthesia with spinal block will be given to ensure that you do not experience any pain during the Orchiectomy procedure. Testicles will be removed through an incision in the scrotum or the groin. At the end of the Orchiectomy operation, the incision will be sutured. The surgery generally takes between 30 minutes and 1 hour. Your surgeon might suggest to insert a prosthesis or artificial replacement for the testes in your scrotum to give your scrotum a normal look. Some of the lymph nodes that are located deep in the abdomen or inguinal area may also be removed.
India is the only Asian country experiencing a major surge in what has recently become known as “medical tourism”.

The quality of care and standard of treatment provided by orchiectomy surgeons in India is not affected because of the extremely low costs.
