Peyronie's Disease & Surgical Grafting

If you are concerned about going under the surgeon's knife to overcome Peyronie's Disease (PD) and are looking at an effective alternative, you have arrived at the right place. Focussed ShockWave Therapy (FSWT) can straighten the bend in your penis and get rid of pain during sexual intercourse.

Exploring Surgical Grafting for Peyronie's Disease

The medical community has generally only recommended surgical grafting for Peyronie's Disease (PD) when PD has been stable for at least three months, i.e. without pain or deformity deterioration. This is usually the case twelve months after the onset of symptoms, and when sexual intercourse has been compromised due to penile deformity.

Research outcomes from surgical grafting studies have varied. Some found a substantial decline in penile straightness when comparing results after 6 months and 5 years and the majority reported dissatisfaction with the outcome of their PD surgery. Meanwhile, researchers are continuing to investigate the ideal graft sources for tunical defect sealing, which is less liable to infections, and bleeding, and maintain erectile function. Grafting materials from porcine and bovine sources are often used.

Managing Expectations in Peyronie's Disease Surgery

However, in almost all studies, penile shortening as a result of grafting has been a common concern. This reinforces the importance of preoperative counselling with patients and setting realistic expectations before surgery and them being informed that the primary goal is to provide adequate straightening, indentation correction, and maintenance of an erection so that satisfactory penetrative intercourse is possible. They must understand that their erection after surgery will not be the same as that which they remember before the onset of PD.
