If you’ve been noticing the symptoms of varicocele, a condition produced by the enlargement of veins in the scrotum, you might want to consider having it treated during your stay in Southeast Asia. Several different surgical methods can be used to treat varicocele, but all of these are performed as a day-surgery, which means that you will be discharged from the hospital after spending a few hours recovering.
The most common surgical treatment is Laparoscopic Varicocelectomy, but a Microsurgical Varicocelectomy is more preferred. The difference between the two methods is the location and size of the incision and the procedure to identify and ligate the abnormal vein. Postoperative pain is minimal and can be controlled by over-the-counter painkillers.
If you’ve already undergone surgery for the condition and experiencing a recurrence, the urologist may need to perform an embolization of the Varicocele. This method involves making a small incision in the groin so that a fine catheter can be inserted. X-ray dye is injected into the vein so that the blockage can be precisely identified after which a coil or balloon is used to block the area.
Regardless of the method used to treat varicocele, you can be assured that you’ll receive high quality health care in Southeast Asia. The urologists at the top hospitals in the region are highly qualified to perform any of the above surgeries, so you can feel confident of a successful outcome. After spending a few days resting, you’ll be able to return to your normal activities or visit the beautiful places in the region if you’re on vacation.
