Microscopic Varicocelectomy in Dubai at DRHC Andrology Clinic

Microscopic varicocelectomy is a surgical procedure used to treat varicoceles, which are enlarged veins in the scrotum that can cause pain, infertility, and other symptoms. This procedure is performed under magnification, allowing for precise identification and ligation of the affected veins while minimizing damage to surrounding tissues.

Symptoms of Varicoceles:

Varicoceles often do not cause any symptoms. However, some men may experience the following:

  1. Pain or Discomfort: A dull, achy pain in the scrotum, especially after standing or physical exertion.
  2. Swelling: Swelling or enlargement of the scrotum, particularly on one side.
  3. Infertility: Varicoceles are a common cause of male infertility, as they can affect sperm production and quality.


  1. Anesthesia: Microscopic varicocelectomy is typically performed under general anesthesia, although local anesthesia with sedation may also be used.
  2. Incision: A small incision is made in the lower abdomen or groin.
  3. Vein Ligation: Using a surgical microscope, the surgeon identifies the affected veins and ligates (ties off) them to redirect blood flow.
  4. Closure: The incision is closed with sutures.


  • Varicocelectomy: Surgical removal of abnormal veins to improve blood flow to normal ones.
  • Fertility Improvement: Removing varicoceles can improve fertility, with pregnancy rates increasing to nearly 70% after the procedure.
  • Pain Management: Pain relief can be managed with over-the-counter or prescribed medications.


  • Most patients can go home the same day or the day after the surgery.
  • Pain and discomfort are common but can be managed with pain medication.
  • Normal activities can usually be resumed within a few days, but strenuous activities should be avoided for several weeks.


Although rare, complications of microscopic varicocelectomy can include infection, bleeding, recurrence of the varicocele, and damage to surrounding structures.

Success Rates:

Microscopic varicocelectomy has a high success rate, with most men experiencing improvement in symptoms and fertility outcomes.

Microscopic varicocelectomy is a safe and effective treatment for varicoceles, offering relief from symptoms and improved fertility for men experiencing this condition. It is important to discuss the risks and benefits of this procedure with a qualified healthcare provider before undergoing treatment.
