Also known as:
Orchiopexy, laparoscopic, Orchidopexy, laparoscopic, Undescended testicle
Surgery to move an undescended testicle into the scrotum is called orchiopexy or orchidopexy. It is usually performed on babies who are 6 to 15 months old. In most cases, a pediatric surgeon or a specialist who treats urinary problems in children (pediatric urologist) performs the surgery.
A surgical method called laparoscopy is used to move undescended testicles when they are located high in the inguinal canal or in the abdomen.
