What is cryptorchidism?
The testicles develop in the abdominal cavity during gestation and in the latter stages of maturation before birth, they begin to descend into the scrotum. When one or both testicles are arrested in this descent, the condition is called cryptorchidism or undescended testicles.
The Glickman Urological and Kidney Institute is a world leader in treating both pediatric and adult urologic problems. The Institute's surgeons have pioneered diagnostic and surgical procedures that are minimally traumatic and significantly shorten recovery periods.
