Several possible.: Surgery for testicular torsion exposes the testicle, de-torses the spermatic cord, and fixes both testicles in place (orchipexy). The incision is similar to a hernia surgery.

However, torsions don't happen in a vacuum - "bell-clapper" deformities & other fixable problems lead to recurrent, permanent torsion. See a Urologist to evaluate. Even deformities that predispose you to torsion should be fixed ...Read more
