Orchiopexy is a surgical procedure to move testicles from the abdomen or groin into the scrotum. Before birth, the testicle moves from the pelvic area down into the scrotum. In some boys, this does not occur and it is called undescended testicles. This issue may require more than one operation depending on the position of the testes and any other associated problems. An Orchiopexy is usually done in early childhood. If undescended testicles are left too long, changes occur which can affect growth and function.
