Reconstructive surgery for Peyronie's disease

When the penis is abnormally curved (Peyronie's disease), formation of fibrous tissue on the outer wall of the penis occurs. This causes curvature of the penis (up to 90°), problems with erection, shortening, tightening and loss of sensitivity. During this reconstructive surgery, the fibrous tissue is removed and erectile tissue is restored.

Fibrous tissue prevents the erectile tissue to be expanded during erection. If the fibrous tissue is present only on one side of the penis, there is a considerable curvature of the penis.  The usual surgical procedures straighten the penis in a way that the healthy part is also is reduced by a surgical stitch. Therefore, the origin of the disease is completely preserved. The penis is significantly shortened by up to several centimetres, which is upsetting and depressing for many patients.

During the reconstructive technique, which can be performed only in specializing centres, the origin of the disease is removed and the erectile tissue is restored by using a modern implant. The penis is straightened without being shortened, while its function is fully preserved. Other symptoms caused by this disease are also removed. The whole surgery takes approx. 2 hours.  The cut is thin and flat and remains hidden on the inner side of the foreskin. In circumcised men, a circumcision scar is used for this purpose. The primary phase of the healing process takes 3-5 days. Sport and sexual intercourse should be omitted for 5 weeks in order not to disrupt the result of the surgery.
