Urologist wanted [Zurich area for second opinion]

Can anyone give a first-hand (no pun intended) recommendation for a Urologist in Kanton Zürich?

I want a "2nd Opinion" after a post-Vasectomy problem: unknown pea-sized lump.

My current Surgeon wants to open me up again inkl. Overnight stay and a General Anaesthetic! Swiss Doctors love to treat you don't they?

TBH, I'm scared, but the alternative is background pain 24/7 and it's affecting my work and making me snap at the wife who obviously will never experience the pain of a "kick in the balls"...

Maybe you could ask for an ultrasound scan. Incredible what they can pick up on those, blood flow, scar tissue, cysts etc. Much less invasive than what has been suggested - in fact I am astonished that another GA was suggested. , The only drawback that I can see is the coldness of the gel that they use would cause your nads to shrivel to hazelnut size

Thanks everyone and for the Private Message as well.

Actually I already had an Ultrasound, but the Doctor still didn't know what the lump was.

Am investigating further...

PS. My "nads" didn't shrink to Hazelnut size, they already are...oh hang on, I'd better stop digging here

I can suggest this one:
Dr Christian Ruedi
Gartenstrasse 15
8002 Zürich, ZH
Tel.: 044 281 10 55

Young! Up-to-date, Swiss but speaks German, English, French and Italian. Very matter-of-fact.
