Varicocele Surgery: A Solution for Improved Fertility


Varicoceles, often described as varicose veins around the testicles, are a common cause of male infertility. They subtly impact sperm health, decreasing count, motility, and normal shape. If you’ve been diagnosed with a varicocele, surgery can be a game-changer on your fertility journey.

Why the Operating Microscope Matters

Dr. Nudell has performed over 1000 microsurgical varicocele repairs. This specialized technique is crucial for several reasons:

  • Precision:The operating microscope provides high magnification, allowing Dr. Nudell to clearly distinguish the veins needing to be removed from tiny but vital arteries and lymphatic channels.
  • Safety:Preserving the testicular artery is essential for blood supply to the testicle. The microscope drastically reduces the risk of injuring this crucial blood vessel.
  • Preventing Hydrocele:Meticulous avoidance of lymphatic channel damage minimizes the chance of fluid buildup around the testicle (hydrocele).
  • Maximizing Results:Correcting all contributing veins with high accuracy is key to optimizing improvement in sperm parameters following surgery.

The Dr. Nudell Difference: Procedure and Recovery

Dr. Nudell’s approach prioritizes patient comfort and success:

  • Small Incision:A 1.5-inch incision in the groin area allows for effective surgery.
  • Outpatient Procedure:The surgery typically takes about an hour, and you’ll go home the same day.
  • Quick Recovery:Most men return to work within a few days and can resume strenuous activity after a week.
