You've come to the right place

One of the most difficult aspects for men with testicular pain is that many physicians have trouble believing their patients are suffering from true pain. These men may leave their physicians with nothing more than a referral for counseling rather than a true solution. Dr. Gittens takes testicular pain seriously, as he's well aware that not only is this condition not rare, it can be debilitating physically, and emotionally.

Treatment Options for Testicular Pain

Dr. Gittens prides himself on providing effective treatment for testicular and groin pain. With success rates greater than 80%, Dr. Gittens has become a leader in treating men with testicular pain.

There are close to 100,000 men that suffer from chronic testicular pain and groin pain. The pain can be caused by a variety of reasons, which include groin surgery (i.e., inguinal hernia repair, varicocele surgery), testicular surgery (i.e. vasectomy), infection and causes that are unknown.

Dr. Gittens takes a comprehensive approach offering you a combination of therapies which can include oral medication, physical therapy and if needed nerve blocks and microsurgery. 

Causes of Testicular Pain

The causes of testicular and groin pain can be due to a variety of mechanisms such as surgery, infection trauma or the cause may be unknown. Regardless of the reason the pain is theorized to be secondary to swelling and irritation of the nerves to this area. This causes higher levels of pain signals to the groin and the testicle resulting in groin and/or testicular pain.

What are treatment options for testicular pain?

At the Philadelphia Center for Sexual Medicine we realize that everyone that has testicular or groin pain is not the same. We complete a full history and exam to attempt to identify the cause of the pain. Radiographic images may be ordered such as a sonogram or a CAT scan. Depending on the information gathered, Dr. Gittens will decide the most effective treatment. Types of treatment may include physical therapy, oral therapy, nerve blocking agents and a possible microsurgical spermatic cord denervation.

Dr. Gittens is fellowship trained in microscopic surgery. He performs a procedure that specifically targets the nerves causing pain in the groin or testicle. This procedure is called a microsurgical denervation of the spermatic cord. This requires no overnight stay in the hospital has minimal risk and can have up to an 80% success rate on the correct patient.
