This is a state of the art webinar focusing on the indications for treatment and best treatment modalities in varicoceles presenting in adolescence.

Varicoceles are common and appear in about 1 in 6 boys and young men between 15 and 25 years old. 

This webinar will: 

  • Present the latest evidence on the indication for treatment of a varicocele presenting in the peri-pubertal male
  • Enable the treating physician to advise on most appropriate timing of such intervention
  • Present the latest evidence on the effectiveness of different treatment modalities

The webinar is mainly aimed at urological and paediatric surgical trainees, and maps to the sub-fertility domain of the training curriculum.
