After posting the advertisement, he met with another man at a motel who allegedly surgically removed his left testicle.

One week later, the 52-year-old man attended hospital to repair a wound sustained during the procedure.

Police were notified and an investigation commenced.

About 9.30am yesterday, officers executed a search warrant at a home in Glenn Ines.

At the home, officers seized medical equipment, electronic equipment, seven firearms, and four bottles of liquid believed to be amyl nitrate.

A 56-year-old man,  who police allege is not a qualified or registered doctor, was arrested at the home and taken to Port Macquarie Police Station.

He was charged with assault occasioning grievous bodily harm, possess restricted substance, and not keep firearm safe.

He is due to appear at Port Macquarie Local Court on Wednesday 13 July.
