ORCHIDOPEXY ( Right Side) Page 1 of 2
Undescended intra-abdominal testis is better treated by laparoscopic archidopexy rather than by open orchidopexy. Laparoscopy enables accurate localisation of the testis as well as atraumatic mobilisation of the testis. This is possible due to the superior access & as well as the the x10-15 magnification made possible by laparoscopy. I prefer to time the procedure as soon as the child is 10KG weight after the child is one year old. The procedure is peferably done before the child is 2 years.
