Urogenital Reconstructive Surgery
Our doctors are leaders in urogenital reconstructive surgery, having developed and significantly improved the most advanced operating techniques
All the techniques we employ are minimally invasive with very little and usually trivial complications and are performed as day care surgeries allowing our patients to continue with their daily lives the next day
- Our physicians have over 20 years of experience, having performed more than 1,500 penis operations to-date
- We are specialized and can perform all the techniques; from the simplest to the most intricate
Peyronie’s disease (PD) is characterized by scarring of the tunica albuginea, the tissue which covers the penis erection mechanism.
Because of this scar (plaque), the tunica albuginea loses elasticity, which in turn results in penile deformity during erection.
This deformity is usually severe curvature of the penis, making sexual intercourse very difficult or even impossible.
As a result, patients usually report that the disease has significant impacts on their quality of life and 1 in 2 patients report severe psychological distress and even depression, but only 9% of them seek medical treatment.
Despite the severity of the condition and the detrimental effect it usually has on patients, all cases of Peyronie’s disease are treatable and all patients will regain a healthy sexual life as long as appropriate treatment by experienced doctors is sought. The goal of any treatment of Peyronie’s disease is four-fold:
- Restore a straight 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 treatment side-effects such hematoma, reduction in penis sensibility etc.
To date whereas for some patients conservative treatments might be beneficial, the majority of patients suffering from severe Peyronie’s disease will require surgical intervention.
Our doctors are leaders in the treatment for penile curvature correction having developed and significantly improved the most advanced operating techniques
The STAGE and EGYDIO techniques that we perform, have over 92% success rate (this means no recurrent curvature), result to no further penile shortening and can restore the penile length that was lost due to the disease
For Peyronie’s patients that also suffer from severe erectile dysfunction and require penile prosthesis implantation, we have pioneered a technique that can lead to impressive penis girth and length gains (3 – 5 cm)
Congenital penile curvature is a penis deformity that is present from birth, although it might become evident during puberty.
This in effect happens because one of the two sides of the penis is larger or more elastic than the other, leading to a bent penis.
The incidence of congenital curvature is quite rare and estimated to be less than 1% but in recent years, reports of congenital curvature have increased due to a greater awareness of the problem among patients and physicians.
According to International Andrology experience men suffering from congenital penile curvature, tend to have longer penises and usually do not exhibit erectile dysfunction due to the curvature. When the angle of curvature is less than 30 degrees, most patients do not seek treatment as sexual intercourse is not affected.
However, patients with more severe curvature will invariably complain of the following:
- Severe difficulty in sexual intercourse either from their side or their partners, who often complain of pain during sex
- Embarrassment with their condition due to the abnormal aesthetic appearance of their penis
Further bending during intercourse along the axis of the curvature – this is particularly worrying as it might lead to penis fracture or potentially Peyronie’s disease
Due to the anatomical nature of congenital penile curvature, treatment is only possible through uro-genital surgery.
When performed by experienced doctors of International Andrology, employing the latest operating techniques, congenital penile curvature is 100% treatable, with minimal complications and aesthetically excellent results.
Hypospadias is a male congenital defect, in which the urethra opens on the underside (ventrum) of the penis.
It is one of the most common congenital abnormalities occurring in about one of every 125 live malebirths.
Epispadias (also called bladder exstrophy) is a congenital defect of males in which the urethra opens on the upper surface (dorsum) of the penis.
Surgery is the treatment of choice for both hypospadias and epispadias.
All surgical repairs should be undertaken early and completed without delay, to minimize psychological trauma.
Penis enlargement, or phalloplasty, is a surgical procedure that can permanently increase the length of the penis, usually by slightly more than an inch and may give you a renewed sense of well-being and improved self-assurance.
Our doctors have been at the forefront of these developments for over 20 years and our medical view is that with modern operating techniques performed by experienced doctors, real penis enlargement is possible and safe. If the penis size of a man causes him significant distress then he should be given the opportunity to consult an experienced medical professional who will explain in detail the available treatment options and what are the results that can be realistically achieved. Under these circumstances, most patients that decide to proceed with a penis enlargement treatment, will be very satisfied with the outcome. The demand of phalloplasty is increasing, operating techniques are constantly improving and new materials are being developed.
Our medical specialists will not only strive for maximum size gains, but also for a result, which is aesthetically pleasing.
