Congenital and acquired abnormalities of the penis and scrotum are not uncommon and require reconstructive surgery. Because these deformities can be very challenging, a team approach is often used. Therefore, I frequently operate on these patients with Dr. Richard Ehrlich, a world-renowned pediatric and reconstructive urologist. I believe that the combined input and expertise of a pediatric urologist on congenital cases and a plastic surgeon/urologist (myself) provides the best possible care.
Patient with lymphedema of the penis and scrotum, burns, Fournier’s gangrene, etc. can be reconstructed with excellent results that can improve and restore the patient’s sexuality and self-confidence. The reconstruction may require tissue rearrangement or skin grafts.
