Orchiectomy (GRS) | Dr. Harold Reed, MD | Male to Female

(in part from TS surgery)

What is an Orchiectomy?

 An orchiectomy (spelled orchidectomy in British English), is the medical word for the surgical procedure to remove one or more of the testicles. If bilateral orchiectomy,  this refers to removal of both testicles and is commonly referred to as castration.

An orchiectomy doesn’t remove the penis, which would be a penectomy. It is also different from a vasectomy, which leaves the testicles and their function intact while still causing sterilization. While sex reassignment surgery (SRS) for male to female transsexuals also removes the testicles and penis, it is different because it also creates a functional vagina in the process.

Our affordable orchiectomy fee is $2,500.
