Laparoscopic Fixation of Undescended Testis: What You Need to Know

Undescended testis is a common condition in young boys where one or both testes fail to descend into the scrotum. This can lead to complications such as infertility and testicular cancer later in life. Laparoscopic fixation of undescended testis is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that can help correct this condition. Here are some common questions related to the procedure:

What is laparoscopic fixation of undescended testis?

Laparoscopic fixation of undescended testis is a surgical procedure where a laparoscope (a thin, flexible tube with a camera and light attached) is inserted into the abdomen through a small incision. The surgeon uses the laparoscope to locate the undescended testis and then fixates it to the scrotum using sutures or clips.

Who is a candidate for laparoscopic fixation of undescended testis?

Boys who have been diagnosed with undescended testis and are between the ages of 6 months and 2 years are good candidates for laparoscopic fixation. The procedure is also recommended for older boys who have not responded to hormone therapy.

What are the benefits of laparoscopic fixation of undescended testis?

Laparoscopic fixation of undescended testis has several benefits over traditional open surgery, including:

  • Smaller incisions
  • Less pain and scarring
  • Faster recovery time
  • Lower risk of complications

What is the recovery process like after laparoscopic fixation of undescended testis?

Most boys can go home the same day as the surgery and resume normal activities within a week. However, they should avoid strenuous activity for at least 2 weeks and refrain from contact sports for 4 weeks.

Who should perform laparoscopic fixation of undescended testis?

Laparoscopic fixation of undescended testis should be performed by a qualified laparoscopic surgeon who has experience with the procedure. Dr. Anup Patki is a General and Laparoscopic Surgeon in Surat who specializes in laparoscopic surgery and can perform this procedure with expertise.
