Corrective surgery is necessary in less than 10% of cases. The goal of this procedure is to decrease the amount of curvature of the erect penis to facilitate intercourse. Straightening of the penis by plication is performed only if severe penile curvature prevents intercourse or makes it difficult for at least 12 months. It is recommended for patients who have good erectile ability, who have a simple deformity (one direction) and less than 60 ° and who have a penis with sufficient length.
Patients may be asked for photos of their erect penis; the latter will help the urologist validate the operative technique and to judge the postoperative result.
Straightening the penis by plication is intended to shorten the tunica albuginea by excising an albuginea tunica ellipse on the opposite side to the curvature with nonabsorbable point suture. The results are very satisfactory; a success rate ranging from 79% to 100% for realignment and from 67% to 100% for patient satisfaction is reported.
Dr. Marois is a urologist who is not a member of the Régie de l’Assurance Maladie du Québec (RAMQ). As such, if you require his professional services, you will have to pay directly the Cliniques Marois for the services rendered.
To ensure the smooth running of the clinics aa well as a minimum of courtesy towards other patients and staff members, we ask you to notify us 48 hours in advance for cancelling an appointment, 5 working days for cancelling a minor surgery in the office and 21 working days for major surgery at the CMC. If these deadlines are not respected, a cancellation fee of 50% of the service will be charged.
