Orchidopexy: Surgery for Undescended Testicles (Child, Male) [English] Permalink Public

Normally before a baby boy is born, the testicles move into the scrotum (the sac that holds the testicles). Sometimes, though, one or both testicles stay in the body cavity instead of moving into the scrotum. This is called undescended testicles​ or cryptorchidism, which means "hidden testicle." An orchidopexy is an operation to lower the testicles into the scrotum. (English)
