Varicocele is a condition where the veins in the scrotum get enlarged or swollen. This medical condition can be diagnosed by urologists using ‘valsalva maneuver’, where you will be asked to stand, take a deep breath and hold it. This helps the urologists to detect the abnormal swelling of the veins in the scrotum.
Along with this diagnosis technique, urologists at Pristyn Care can perform a general routine physical examination of your testicles and scrotum area. For identifying the main cause of your varicocele, our doctors in Delhi can recommend other tests like:
- Scrotal ultrasound
- Semen analysis
- Hormone tests [follicle stimulating hormone and testosterone]
- Blood test
If you wish to get diagnosed by the best urologists in Delhi, you can visit Pristyn Care. Because all our doctors use a combination of above mentioned diagnostic tests and evaluate your past and present medical and medication history to make a proper diagnosis of your medical condition [varicocele].
Procedure or surgery:
The best urologists in Delhi at Pristyn Care can cure your varicocele by performing a varicocelectomy. Varicocelectomy can be performed in two  methods: microscopic varicocelectomy and laparoscopic varicocelectomy. Other than varicocelectomy, varicocele can be treated with percutaneous embolization and open surgery.
- Microscopic varicocelectomy: In this method, our surgeons will make a small incision of 1 cm above the scrotum. With the help of a microscope, the surgeon will separate the testicular arteries, lymphatic drainage, vas deferens from all the small abnormal veins. Once the procedure is done, you will be discharged from the hospital on the same day.
- Laparoscopic varicocelectomy: In this technique, our surgeons in Delhi will insert thin tubes in the abdomen to check and repair the swollen veins. Laparoscopic varicocelectomy takes around 30-45 minutes to complete, and the patient can get discharged on the same day of completion of the procedure.
