In brief: This would probably

Be done with a general anesthetic, although a spinal anesthetic is an alternative.

In brief: General

Orchiopexy is a procedure performed through scrotal incisions under general anesthesia.
The testes are fixed with suture material to surrounding connective tissue to prevent future twisting within the scrotum.
