    Dr. Towfigh – Neurectomy

    Thanks Doctor. In doing my research regarding my problem, I was reading a bit about the Shouldice hernia repair. I know that this repair isn’t commonly practiced anymore, but in the description, it says that they routinely resect the cremaster muscle. From Master Techniques of Hernia Surgery:

    “The lateral flap of the cremaster is doubly clamped halfway between the pubic spine and the deep inguinal ring, divided and each stump doubly ligated. These stumps will include the genital branch of the genitofemoral nerves and the cremasteric vessels.”

    So I assume this means they do transect the nerve?

    And yes, a handful of urologists told me that my problem is completely incurable. Thankfully, I found you and Dr. Chen, as well as a few others that have written on the topic. If I had listened to my Doctors, I would still be walking around thinking that I am in incurable,
