SPERMATIC CORD BLOCK FOR TESTICULAR PAIN
A spermatic cord block can offer temporary relief to men who experience chronic pain in the testes. A spermatic cord block is used for patients who do not have an infection or tumor, but continue to experience pain.
The spermatic cord block is a useful maneuver when performing procedures on the scrotal contents to minimize pain. It is also useful for patients complaining of testicular/epididymal pain prior to any more invasive procedures.
It is used both as a diagnostic test to determine whether a patient would be appropriate for a Microsurgical Denervation of the Spermatic Cord, and as a therapeutic treatment for testicle pain in select patients.
