Sexual Health Q&A

Which men are good candidates for a graft procedure for Peyronie’s disease?

Graft procedures are recommended for men with more severe curvature, generally more than 70 degrees. It’s also suitable for men who have a “hinge effect” – a buckling of the penis that resembles a hinge.

Men with good erectile function before surgery, with firmness in spite of the curvature, tend to have better results from grafting procedures. Men who have some degree of erectile difficulty before surgery may find that this problem stays the same or worsens after surgery.
