Customer Question
My wife and I...

My wife and I have discussed this. I do not have prostate cancer but we both agreed after looking at the pros and cons for me to go ahead and have a bilateral orchiectomy

Doctor's Assistant: Are you keeping a personal medical record while dealing with this?

No

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I am a recovering sex addict. I mentioned to my wife and she is all for me having my testicles removed and it was my idea for it.

I just want to know where I can get it done in illinois or the Chicago area
Doctor: Dr. Arun Phophalia, Doctor replied 4 months ago

Any urologist or general surgeon can do it.

But without any medical indication, doctors may not do it. This may considered as unethical or even malpractice or illegal and jeopardize licence.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
