Penile curvature correction

Summary

Penile curvature correction

Congenital penile curvature is a penis deformity that is often present from birth, although it might only become evident during puberty. Usually, patients will only seek treatment when the angle of curvature is more than 30 degrees. A patient will often complain of: severe difficulty in sexual intercourse; embarrassment with their condition or 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.

Not all patients require surgery. Sometimes, drugs may be prescribed, particularly if you have pain. Surgical approaches, such as penile prostheses, may be advised in patients with erectile difficulties as well. There are a number of procedures used to correct the curvature, the one most suitable for a patient depends on the cause and degree of curvature. Surgery is carried out under either a general anaesthetic or a spinal anaesthetic.
