Plaque incision and grafting (PIG) is an excellent option for men with significant curvature (greater than 45 degrees), young age and normal erectile function. The success rate defined as having a straight erection after surgery is greater than 85%. However, it is associated with some side effects the most notable one being problems with erection. In our database those patients most likely to develop erectile dysfunction after PIG surgery are men over 55 years of age, men with pre-existing erection difficulties (even mild ED) and curvatures greater than 60 degrees. This is a complicated operation that should only be done by a surgeon with significant expertise ion the procedure.

Previous I had surgery for Peyronies disease in April of 2012. I have an allergy to iodine but the incompetent post-op nurse put iodine all over my penis to insert a catheter. This caused massive quarter-sized blisters all over the head of my penis that spread into the sutures. I keep having electrical shooting pains through my penis frequently. The surgical doctor said I have nerve damage from the allergic reaction. The hospital is arguing this point saying this is not possible. Any thoughts?
Next I have a bend that goes straight down and slightly to the left. Would surgery help this type of Peyronie’s?
