Orchidopexy surgery: Cryptochidism signifies a hidden or non-palpable testis, although many erroneously use the term for any undescended testis. Ultrasound should first be performed if testis is non-palpable. Then laparoscopy if us is negative. Orchidopexy surgery, either laparoscopically, or by open trans-abdominal or inguinal surgery.
