In this video, Dr Katelaris explains the Incision and Graft procedure as a treatment option for a form of Peyronie’s Disease. Peyronie’s disease is a condition marked by penile curvature, indentation and loss of penile length upon erection.
In this 3 part series Dr Katelaris talks about the different surgery options available as treatment for Peyronie’s Disease.
If a man has a good erection, a rigid erection that is bent, and has lost length, and cannot afford to lose any more, then I do a more complex operation known as incision and graft.
The patient is in hospital for one night, general anaesthetic, de-glove the penis, erection test, and what I then do is excise the constricting plaque.
And in order to fill the gap, following that excision, I graft the tissue to maintain straightness and the integrity of the erectile body.
This approach has the advantage of straightening the penis without loss of length.
It is more complex, and careful pre-operative counselling is very important.
