Penile Curvature

Forms of presentation

There are two possible clinical forms:

– A curved penis from birth (congenital penile incurvation)

– Curvature as a result of disease (Peyronie’s disease) or trauma.
In both cases this can cause psychological disorders and affect self-esteem, or result in sexual disorders (difficulty in penetration).

Do you feel any pain in your penis?

75% congenital curvature is usually painless, despite being very pronounced. However, 3 out of 4 patients with Peyronie’s disease experience penile pain. Over half of these patients also have palpable nodules in their penis, together with retraction, a certain loss of size and erectile dysfunction.

Can this be treated?

99% Although some cases may benefit temporarily from iontophoresis or other medical treatments, in almost all cases treatment is surgical. According to each particular case, plication techniques and grafts should be combined. Recent techniques using cavernosa rotation and tunica transposition correct the penis with minimal shortening. This surgery, carried out by a urologist-andrologist, is what will guarantee the preservation of its normal function.

Iontophoresis is a solution for acquired penile curvature in its initial stages. By means of iontophoresis, we can treat the condition in depth using drugs to eliminate nodules caused by penal curvature.

    I have a question regarding the operation for curve treatment.

    What are the side effects. How much does it cost ? How long must i stay in hospital ?

    • Clínica Urología y Andrología Andromedi Russian Federation says:

      Hello Darko, there are no side effects, more than the postoperative itself. Hospital internation its usually less than 24 hours. If you are interested in a budget regarding your own case, please contact us via email in

      after the rotation surgery……. the penis is not cylindrical shape anymore right ? its flat , because of the rotation. Or im wrong ?

      • Clínica Urología y Andrología Andromedi Spain says:

        Well…that it´ s one of the risks If the technique it´s not implemented correctly, but the cylindrical shape should remain intact if the surgeon have experience and knwolege in the rotation method.

  • Jay United States says:

    Penile curveage. I was wonder how it’s possible to get treated. I currently live in the uk and suffer from this problem.

    Thank you

    • Clínica Urología y Andrología Andromedi Spain says:

      Hi Jay, the best (or we should say, the only one) method to fix the curve it´s surgery. We aply some technique called “rotation”, in wich no penis shortening occurs.

      • darko Slovenia says:

        no penis shortening ?

        • Clínica Urología y Andrología Andromedi Spain says:

          Hello Darko, that´s right no shortening. With the technique used in our center (cavernous corpse rotation) the shortening in other techniques like Nesbit gets solved.

          • darko Slovenia says:

            i saw in videos that there is a 0,5-1 cm lenght loss after surgery.

            How about the care of the penis after the surgery ?

          • Clínica Urología y Andrología Andromedi Spain says:

            Hello Darko. Usually in our center there is no loss with the technique we currently use (cavernous corpse rotation), being 0,5 cm the max lenght loss in some special hard/difficult cases.

            The care after surgery it´s easy. No sex in 30 days, and normal life in 48 hours, making some cures meanwhile if needed.

          • Darko Slovenia says:

            how about girth loss?

          • Clínica Urología y Andrología Andromedi Spain says:

            No grith loss neither, at least with the techniques we use in our center.

          • darko Slovenia says:

            no girth loss with rotation technique? this is impossible :/
            also others doctors told me that this is impossible and that the penis is a bit flat ,not round anymore.

            is this true?

          • Clínica Urología y Andrología Andromedi Spain says:

            We said “no girth loss”, because the girth loss is really imperceptible. No patient complain after surgery about that. In our experience it´s really not clinically relevant to say it.

            Of course this technique can be implemented with less experience by some medical team that is not used applying it, but in our medical center, we are specifically expertised on it.

  • Mahesh says:

    Sir, i have a problem of curvature penis about nearby 60 Degree, sir last time i can not intercourse with someone bcoz of this problem? Sir my que is can i sex with someone ib future? Will i hv to get marry or not?

    • Clínica Urología y Andrología Andromedi Spain says:

      Hi Mahesh, 60 degrees it´s a big curve, you maybe not be able to make some sexual positions, but that does not mean you are not going to have problems making any kind of sex…just some difficulties.

  • john Romania says:

    Hi. I have A curved penis from birth and its almost 35 degree down. I don’t feel any pain and I want to know does this device (Iontophoresis) fix it?

    • Clínica Urología y Andrología Andromedi Spain says:

      Hi John. Iontoforesis it´s a metho to aply pharma to the Peyronie disease, not to cure the congenit curvature. To this last, surgery is the only way to achieve it.

  • Fariborz Rezaei United Kingdom says:

  • Md. Sujaul Islam Bangladesh says:

    I am male and my age is 43 years. I am feeling pain during intercourse. My penis also become bend and feeling dysfunction and ejaculation happened in very short time. I am also suffering in sexual erectile problem and can not enjoy sex for long time. Please advise me and show me the way how I get rid from this problem. I prefer medicine or device rather than surgery.

    • Clínica Urología y Andrología Andromedi Spain says:

      Hi Sujaul, seems that your problems are coming from different sources, so our first and bigger adivise is apply for a total exploration in some specialist center.
