circumcision?
« on: April 08, 2021, 08:14:34 AM »

I have peyronies & am thinking of getting surgery ( Ive got about a 60 degree upward bend) but wondered if it was common for the surgeon to perform a circumcision at same time?
Im uncut would like to get that done at same time.
Thanks

Hi Jim! My understanding is that circumcision is often necessary in Peyronie's surgery even if you don't ask for it. I don't think it would pose any problems to ask for it.

I would think that it is done to help cut down on the possibility of infection.
