Surgical treatment of Peyronie’s disease
There are 4 main objectives for the surgical treatment of Peyronie’s disease:
- Restore the straightness of your penis and minimize any residual curvature
- Retain, restore or increase penis length and girth
- Retain or restore good erectile function
- Minimize the potential for any minor complications such as hematomas, reduction in penis sensitivity etc.
The first step for a successful treatment is to select the operating technique that is best suited to your situation. At International Andrology, our expertise in Peyronie’s surgical correction allows us to offer a range of surgical options and we advise our patients as to the treatment that will ensure the best possible result.
This requires evaluating the severity and complexity of the curvature, identify where the Peyronie’s plaques are located, whether the disease has resulted in severe penile shortening and the discomfort that this causes the patient and finally to what extent the erection functionality has been damaged. Based on these elements, you and your doctor will choose the optimum surgical treatment plan.
In summary, there are 3 main surgical techniques for Peyronie’s:
- Plication (penile shortening) surgical technique
- Grafting (penile lengthening) surgical technique
- Penile prosthesis implant surgery
Irrespective of the surgical technique utilised, all operations performed in our clinic are minimally invasive, day-care time framed and to-date we have recorded higher success rates compared to that reported in popular medical publications. In particular:
- Our surgeons have vast experience performing Peyronie’s surgical corrections, having performed in excess of 1500 Peyronie’s specific operations
- Our success rate across our clinics to date (including illiminating complications, no curvature recurrence and patient satisfaction) is over 95% which is significantly higher than the experience reported in medical publications
- All the surgical techniques we offer are minimally invasive and day-care meaning that our patients can go home and function normally (excluding heavy physical activity) the very same day of their operation
- Based on the shared experience of our doctors, we have developed state of the art post-surgical follow up plans that assist in achieving a speedy and complication-free recovery
- Our surgeons and patient co-ordinators are on call 24/7 and will continuously follow-up with our patients after their surgery so as to ensure their well-being
