My 11 mth old son was born with 1 undecended testicle and we are booked in to have surgery with Dr Stalewski early April. I think he is the only one that does this procedure in Cairns ( I will be checking first thing tomorrow) but have just been told by a neighbour that they were advised not to used this doctor from a random shop assistant ( neighbour has a bub also) who has just had her son predates on and he has lost both testicles and will now be on medication the rest of his life. I have tried tracking this lady down and will continue tomorrow but now am. very concerned as I know ds need the op but don't want to risk using this doc if he has a bad rep or track record. Any experience would be greatly appreciated.

I personally know a close relative of his, and we know a lot of the medical people in Townsville. As far as I was aware he had a good reputation.

Anewme did you have the same procedure?

No. I have had to circ and will be getting a belly button herina done. I have only heard good things.
Please remember every Dr has a few bad outcomes. Not every surgery is the same. Different people have different complications.
If you find a pattern of bas outcomes than that is different.
Just my take on it.
