Orchiectomy with Scrotal Removal

Dr. Reed,  I am 65 and have lived as a woman for the past 10 years.  I am asexual and would just like to have an
Orchiectomy and Scrotal Removal (a scrotectomy).  Does this require hospitalization, or can it be done as an outpatient


Dear Nelda,  Thank you for your interest in Orchiectomy and Scrotal Removal.  We have done several such procedures at our office, under local anesthesia with IV conscious sedation, meaning you’ll be awake but sedated..  There are some photos of our post-operative results on our web-site srsMiami/  Here is one such photo.  Note the scrotal cords are also removed.  No tootsie rolls.
