Orchidopexy for Yo-yo or hyper-retractile testes

Dr. Reed,  I have Yo-Yo testes. Several time a day they leave my scrotum and all I see are scrotal folds and of course this is somewhat uncomfortable as well as embarrassing when with my wife.


Dear Jorge,

Yo-Yo  or Hyper-retractile testes is a  treatable condition.  Please consider an Orchidopexy. In this procedure we strip the muscle from the spermatic cords and sutures the testes at 2 fixation points to your lower scrotum.  That should solve the problem.
