Cost of Orchitectomy procedure

The cost of Orchiectomy in India depends up on whether the patient has to undergo Unilateral or Bilateral Orchiectomy.  The average cost of the procedure starts at USD 1300 and can go up to USD 2800.

Orchitectomy procedure

Orchiectomy (Orchi) or orchidectomy is a surgery to remove one or both (bilateral orchiectomy) testicles in men. Done under local or general anesthesia as the case may be (Simple, Subcapsular, and inguinal type), it takes between 30 minutes to an hour to perform.

Also known as castration, an orchiectomy is done for many conditions such as to treat cancer, tumor or to lower the male sex hormone (testosterone) level in the body.

Who undergo Orchiectomy?

Cancer patients – The procedure is recommended to patients having testicular or prostate cancer, or the male breast cancer, as testosterone helps these types of cancer to grow and spread to other organs.

Undescended testicle (cryptorchidism) condition in children – Sometimes, those who have an undescended testicle beyond the age of puberty are also advised an orchiectomy to prevent cancer.

Gender reassignment – A bilateral orchiectomy is one of the gender change surgeries, from male to female gender reassignment.

Recovery after Orchiectomy

After the surgery patient may feel nauseated. Little pain and swelling will be there which would be care taken by the doctor through medications. The hospital stay is of one day. The rest for a day or two is recommended. Patient can get back to normal activities thereafter.

Some precautions for about two-three weeks would be advised like drinking more fluids and avoiding weight lifting, vigorous exercises, or sexual activity.

Note (for foreign patients):

Besides South Asian countries (Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan, Sri Lanka), every year, India gets thousands of medical tourists from African countries- Nigeria, Kenya, Ethiopia, Sudan, Uganda, Ghana, Somalia,Gambia etc and Middle Eastern countries like Iraq, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Oman, UAE, Yemen etc. Hence, if you are a citizen of any of these countries, there is good likelihood that you will be meeting some fellow citizens or same language speakers in the major hospitals in India. Almost all the top hospitals have translators for people of these region. Our patient support team is also well placed to assist you.
