Penile fibrosis or peyronie’s disease is a condition in which scar tissue formation (called plaque) occurs under the skin of the penis. The fibrosis causes loss of tissue elasticity causing dyspareunia which is painful or uncomfortable sex. Other symptoms or complaints that rise due to penile fibrosis are Fibrous nodules (plaques), curvature or deformation of the penis., painful erections, erectile dysfunction. These issues can cause frustration and irritation within a relationship due to infrequent, uncomfortable sex or a complete lack of sex due to embarrassment on the male’s behalf about a possible penile curvature or deformation of the penis. In some cases, Peyronie’s disease or penile fibrosis is self-limiting and does not require medical intervention or surgery but, in most cases, eventually medical intervention is required.

  • penile fibrosis surgery or penile correction is often resorted to if medication does not work to limit the scar tissue formation or of the forming of it is not self-limiting. There are several approaches for this surgery and your surgeon will determine which type is most suitable for your case. The main goal is to remove the fibrous plaques, and repair deformities or unnatural curvatures of the penis.

The plaque formation can make this a challenge for even the most experienced surgeons. Bedaya Hospital offers you the best team of urologist surgeons to complete this surgery successfully with satisfactory results.
