Dr. Reed, I have a very poor tolerance for spironolactone, makes me weak. Would like an orchiectomy as soon as possible. Patricia
Feminizing orchiectomy is irreversible surgery. For that reason we require 2 letters of therapy clearance, one written by a therapist with a doctoral degree. We have availability for orchiectomy just about whenever and do on average several every month. Most recent case was today. As a rule you’ll be able to reduce your estrogen dosage by a third. Typically orchiectomy is done via a midline vertical incision about 1 1/4″ long, and this allows us to remove each testicle with high ligation of the cord. You will feel some lumps where the cords have been tied off for a few weeks. Our orchiectomy surgical fee includes local anesthesia and IV conscious sedation.
We recommend convalescence with a generous amount of bed rest for 2 days, and no strenuous physical activity for a good 2 to 3 weeks. Please see before and after pictures of male to female sex change surgery on our web-site srsMiami.com We hope you’ll find our orchiectomy fee of $2,500 to be affordable.
