Is a prosthetic/artificial testicle implant possible?
Q: I had an accident 5 years back due to which I had to get rid of one of my testis (left). I wanted to know if a prosthetic/artificial testicle implant is possible in Mumbai? If it can be done, then please give me some names of hospitals and the estimated cost of the operation?
A:I am sorry to know that you had to lose one of your testicles in an accident. However, a testicular prosthesis can be easily inserted in the empty scrotal sac. The results are highly satisfactory. Hospitalisations is for 2 days and the total cost inclusive of prosthesis, hospitalisation, surgeons and anaesthetists professional fees, medications, etc would be around 75,000 rupees.
