THE PROCEDURE

The goal of varicocele repair surgery is to locate the distended veins and tie them off to prevent blood from collecting in the testicles.
A small incision is made in the inguinal area, in the region of the pubic hair, not in the testicles. The incision is about an inch in length.

The abnormal blood vessels are closest to the skin at that area. The vessels are secured. The abnormal blood vessels are microsurgically dissected away from the normal structures and tied off.
