Sometimes a single patient helps to remind me of why I became a reconstructive urologist.
Today I saw this kind of patient. He is a gentleman form India in his early 20’s who sheepishly told me he had a problem with his penis. Upon inspection, he had an unusual problem called Balanitis Xerotica Obliterates (BXO) that led to scarring of the foreskin and the inability to retract the foreskin.
Traditionally, urologists offer such a patient one option – circumcision. Truth is, it works terrifically to cure the patient. Among patients who see me, patients are often reluctant to sacrifice their foreskin.
We have innovated a procedure called PREPUTIOPLASTY to reconstruct the foreskin in a way that allows the foreskin to be more easily retracted WITHOUT REMOVING ANY SKIN.
We also offer patient PLATELET RICH PLASMA (PRP) treatments to rejuvenate the skin non-surgically with a single pain-free injection after application of a anesthetizing cream.
