They used to be very strict about following the original procedure, including cutting the cremaster and genital nerve branch, and using steel sutures. That has changed in recent times.

Another thing that changed is that they now operate on Saturdays.

They don’t have enough full-time surgeons for the load, particularly since they lost a few over the last few years. They seem to compensate by some full timers taking on a higher load (such as 4 surgical days a week with 6 surgeries a day), and by using part timers.

If I had a bilateral, I probably wouldn’t do both sides in one visit – I would space them out. I believe they do it in two surgeries anyway (at least that’s how they used to do it). It’s not something that I thought about since I didn’t have a bilateral, but I don’t think I would want to do two surgeries so close together.
