Steps to take before the procedure
You will be given eating and drinking instructions ahead of the surgery. The surgery may seem scary but our team will prepare you thoroughly for the procedure.
What happens during the treatment?
Under the first approach of this medical procedure, a surgical cut is made at the end of abdomen muscles, and then, the veins are cut. The procedure is painful and the patient takes time to recover, after the surgery. In the second approach, an incision is made further up to cut the veins and abdomen muscles. Arteries are necessarily damaged in this procedure. The last approach is laparoscopic varicocelectomy, in which the patient is given general anaesthesia and a surgical cut is made in the belly button. Air is pumped in the abdomen, and a laparoscope is inserted into the abdomen. With improved vision, further surgical incisions are made in the abdominal wall. With the help of other surgical equipment, the area carrying the veins and arteries is recognised. It is then surgically treated.
After the procedure
After the surgery, your doctor may prescribe you certain medications. Usually, patients are asked to avoid physically strenuous activities for 4 weeks and soaking in water for around 5 days. However, mild showers are allowed. A follow-up office visit is scheduled.
