About Varicocele

When the veins in the scrotum enlarge, the condition is known as Varicocele. Varicocele affects sperm production and function that can potentially reduce fertility. Out of a hundred males, ten to fifteen have varicocele. Varicoceles are found to be more common on the left side of the scrotum as the male anatomy is not the same on both sides.

Varicocele is a condition that can be diagnosed by a urologist. If you are in Indore, you can visit our hospital to get diagnosed and treated for varicocele. Because our urologists use the valsalva maneuver method to detect the swelling of the veins in your scrotum.

In the valsalva maneuver method, urologists will ask you to take a breath in a standing position and ask you to hold it. This helps our doctors to check and detect the enlargement or swelling of the veins in the scrotum.

To find the basic root cause of varicocele, urologists at our hospital can recommend tests like:

  • Semen analysis
  • Blood test
  • Scrotal ultrasound

Urologists in Indore at Pristyn Care evaluate the past and present medical and medication history to rule out the underlying disease condition that could have caused the varicocele.

Procedure or surgery:

People with varicocele in Indore may find it difficult to undergo the safest treatment. At Pristyn Care, one can choose to undergo the best and safest laparoscopic varicocelectomy at an affordable cost.

In Indore, our urologists will decide which type of varicocelectomy [microscopic or laparoscopic] is suitable to cure your varicocele.

  • Microscopic varicocelectomy: In this procedure, the surgeon will make a small cut above the scrotum to insert the microscope. With the help of a microscope, testicular arteries, lymphatic drainage, and vas deferens will be separated from swollen or abnormal veins.
  • Laparoscopic varicocelectomy:
  1. Surgeons will make a few small cuts in the patient’s lower abdomen.
  2. A laparoscope [instrument used to see inside of the body] is passed into one of the incisions made on the abdomen.
  3. Through other cuts or incisions, surgical tools are passed. These tools help remove or cut the enlarged veins that are blocking the blood flow.
  4. The ends of the veins are cauterized with the heat.
  5. Once the procedure is done, the cuts made earlier are sealed.

In Indore, urologists at Pristyn Care prefer to perform laparoscopic varicocelectomy because of its benefits like minimal or no risk of infection and post-surgical complications.
