Suffering from pain and discomfort in the scrotum? Book a free consultation today with our expert urologist to undergo minimally invasive varicocelectomy. Our urologists are highly experienced and provide advanced laparoscopic and microscopic varicocelectomy for effective varicocele treatment.
Varicocelectomy is a surgical procedure to remove the damaged and enlarged veins of scrotum called varicoceles. A varicocele typically does not heal on its own or with any other oral treatments. Varicocelectomy is an effective treatment to get rid of varicoceles in an outpatient procedure.

Pristyn Care has partnered with hospitals that have modern infrastructure and equipped with latest technology to offer advanced varicocele treatment. We make sure that every person who needs advanced varicocelectomy treatment in India gets optimal care. We leverage state-of-the-art surgical tools and technologies for a higher success rate.
Our vascular surgeons are upskilled in performing modern and minimally invasive varicocelectomy and have an average experience of 12-15 years. They offer advanced and comprehensive varicocele treatments.
A urologist will carry out a physical examination of your condition which might help the doctor to feel the non-tender mass above your testicle. If it is still not diagnosed, the urologist might use a procedure of Valsalva maneuver, where you might be asked to stand, take a deep breath, and hold it while you bear down. The doctor will recommend the following diagnostic tests to detect the severity of the varicocele-
Depending upon your treatment method, you will be sedated with general or spinal anesthesia, which would help in easing the pain and discomfort during the surgery.
During a microscopic varicocelectomy, the doctor will choose one of the two (inguinal or subinguinal) procedures and will make small incisions around the groin.
After the incisions are made, the surgeon will separate the testicular arteries and vas deferens in the scrotum, keeping the lymphatic drainage intact with the help of a microscope.
The surgeon will then dissect down to the spermatic cord where the abnormal veins will be encountered.
Once the abnormal veins are encountered, the surgeon will meticulously dissect each vein circumferentially before tying them off to disrupt the flow of blood.
The surgeon will then drain the blood away from the testicle into the inner thigh and pelvis before closing the incisions with sutures and placing bandages over it.
The following are the benefits of advanced varicocele surgery compared to conventional varicocele surgery-
Smaller Incisions– As the name signifies, minimally invasive surgery is done through tiny incisions with the help of a laparoscope or microscope and other small surgical instruments.
Less Pain- The surgery causes minimal pain during and after the procedure. Thus, the patient needs fewer medications to resume regular activities quickly.
Shorter Hospital Stay– A patient who undergoes minimally invasive surgery doesn’t need to stay in the hospital for more than 24 hours as their vitals don’t take long to return to their normal state.
Quicker Recovery- Due to the smaller size of the incision, the wound heals quickly and smoothly. Thus, the overall recovery is much faster than open surgery.
Less Scarring– As the incisions are tiny, they heal completely without leaving a scar on the body. Normally, even stitches are not needed to close the wound. And if there are stitches, they will also disappear over time without causing visible scarring.
Increased Accuracy- The minimally invasive techniques are performed using tools like laparoscope and microscope, which provide clear visualization of the internal organs. Thus, the doctors can carry out the procedure with high precision, thereby improving the success rate as well.
Mr. Abhinav Kapoor(name changed) contacted Pristyn Care by filling out the form given on the website. He complained of pain and swelling in the left side of his scrotum. He said that he took a painkiller to get instant relief from pain, but it didn’t help much.
Our medical coordinator booked his appointment with one of our best vascular doctors, Dr. Purav Goel. Dr. Goel conducted a physical examination to diagnose the tenderness, swelling, and pain in the affected area. He even recommended a few diagnostic tests such as doppler ultrasound, scrotal thermography, and urine test to detect any underlying disease.
After the test results, Dr. Goel diagnosed him with varicocele. He advised Mr. Kapoor of microscopic varicocelectomy for varicocele condition and scheduled his surgery for next week, i.e, 23rd September 2021. It was an outpatient procedure that took approximately 45 minutes. Post-surgery, when the anesthesia wore off, Mr. Kapoor got discharged as he did not show any odd signs.
Dr. Goel suggested a few guidelines post-surgery for smooth recovery duration. Later, Mr. Kapoor took two follow-up consultations and informed the doctor that he had recovered well and was not feeling any pain or discomfort in his scrotum.
Generally, the results of a Varicocele start to show up gradually. It may take up to 3 to 6 months to achieve the best results. However, it should be kept in mind that following the doctor’s instructions throughout the healing process is important in achieving the most effective results. For getting permanent results and to ensure proper and complete recovery, one should regularly attend follow-up appointments with the doctor.
Generally, a person can resume a regular routine within two to three days. However, the complete recovery may take three weeks. There are several factors due to which the recovery duration post varicocele surgery may vary from one person to another, such as:
Usually, an individual can resume work within 2-3 days post varicocelectomy. However, it also depends on the type of profession you are into. It is always advisable to consult your doctor about resuming work post-treatment. There are a few tips that help you post varicocele treatment:
Medications, home remedies, and other tips may successfully provide temporary relief. But without proper treatment, it is highly unlikely that the varicocele will go away on its own.
After surgery, the veins will no longer be connected to the rest of the body and will no longer cause pain or harm to sperm production.
Varicoceles in minor conditions might never require treatment. But, it would require medical attention if it causes pain, swelling and discomfort, infertility, or testicular atrophy.
On average, the surgical treatment of varicocele costs around Rs. 40,000 to Rs. 85,000 approximately.

The cost is subject to change, and the final bill can vary for each individual.

This procedure is generally performed if there is a risk of infertility. In this process, the surgeon makes a tiny incision above the scrotum. With the help of a microscope, the surgeon separates the testicular arteries and vas deferens in the scrotum. Keeping the lymphatic drainage intact, the surgeon then dissects down to the spermatic cord. After the abnormal veins are encountered, each vein is meticulously dissected circumferentially and tied off to disrupt the flow, before draining the blood away from the testicle into the inner thigh and pelvis.
This process is mostly preferred in treating patients diagnosed with a second or third grade of varicoceles and is performed using general anesthesia. During the procedure, the surgeon makes small incisions in the abdomen. Through one of the incisions, the surgeon inserts a thin lighted scope (laparoscope) and inflates the abdomen using CO2 gas, which enables them to have a clear view of the internal organs. Once the swollen veins are identified, they are cut and the ends are closed off. As soon as the ends are sealed, all the tools are removed and the incisions are closed with sutures or clips and dressing is applied.
Living with varicoceles can be quite painful and full of everyday struggles. Thus, prevention is better than cure. Although, there are no sure shot ways of preventing varicocele as such, a few dietary and lifestyle changes you can make to reduce the risk of varicocele.
Let’s get a detailed insight into all the preventive steps you can take to keep the chances of varicoceles:
