Bilateral hydrocel operation

Bilateral hydrocel operation

Question:

- My baby is almost 6 months old and suffers from bilateral hydrocele. Can you operate from this disease and at this age? Do you support anesthesia?

Answer:

From the technical point of view the operation is possible at this age. On the other hand, it is not indicated unless there is a child's suffering.

If there is no suffering, it is only necessary to have periodic control with the child's doctor, many cases are solved spontaneously, and delaying the intervention in the case of an uncomplicated hydrocele does not present a danger.
