Dr. Levine answers: At this point there is no evidence that anyone is recommending a penile transplant. It is certainly a procedure which is technically possible, but with potential significant complications and the need for lifelong immunosuppression to reduce rejection. In men who have had penile amputation and replantation of their own penis, erectile dysfunction and scarring is common. Therefore, it does not appear to be a reasonable option for treatment of Peyronie’s disease at this time.

Previous Is PD progressive? Will I continue to lose length and girth? Is there any type of laser surgery to reduce calcified scar tissue?
Next Last year my penis began to point downward and developed an indentation on the topside. My penis is now bent about 90 degrees and it is hinged. I can straighten it enough to pull it where it needs to go…no pain, ever. After seeing a urologist that prescribed Potaba, then researching about the various treatments, I found several additional options that may help, including colchicine, collagenase, and finally surgery. What is the best treatment or surgical option for this kind of PD?
