The Nesbit Surgical penis Straightening Procedure
Traditional western Medicine uses two main methods of treating ailments and disease. These two methods are (1.) Medicate and (2.) Operate. These two methods treat symptoms, and are referred to by physicians often as," the Gold Standard" of treatment protocols. Don't assume that because something is called the gold standard, that it is automatically the best way to treat an ailment. You should always do your own research and check on alternatives.
The Nesbit Procedure is a surgery that is referred to by many Urologic Surgeons as the Gold Standard of treatment in stable Peyronie's Disease. They also refer to as a "penis shortening and straightening procedure." My urologist suggested that I schedule a Nesbit/Plication Procedure and then he went on to describe the procedure in detail. When he got to the part about how the procedure would shorten my penis by 1/2" to 3/4" I became even more nervous and uncomfortable with the prospect.
Why would a doctor ever recommend a Nesbit Procedure when there is a far less invasive protocol available?
The simple answer is, if you are a surgeon, you fix things buy cutting, repairing, and stitching back together. A surgeon makes his living performing surgery, it is as simple as that. If you go visit a surgeon with a problem, he will cut you open and repair the damage. That is his job, it is what he went to many years of medical school to learn. If you are in a serious car accident or a soldier in war that is shot, a surgeon is the only one that can save your life. You don't take vitamins to fix a bullet hole. Surgery has its' place and saves innumerable lives in emergency situations.
Peyronie's disease is not an emergency situation. It takes many months to stabilize. The agony of waiting to see if it will resolve all by itself, plays havoc on a man's emotional state and self esteem. The surgery is something you have time to contemplate and schedule. The surgery involves cutting and stitching the penis on the side opposite the plaque. It is a permanent change in the structure of the penis and does not repair the area of scarring or plaque. Basically it changes the geometry of the penis by pulling the penis against the plaque that is already binding the penis on the opposite side. If you have a dent or deformation at the plaque site it will still be there after the surgery. Many men complain of some erectile dysfunction on the side past the plaque. Plication surgery will not remedy that problem. Plication surgery is not for men with a bell shaped deformity, and should be performed on men with adequate length, as shortening is inevitable.
The Nesbit operation, first used for Peyronie’s disease in 1977, is still the most common surgical procedure performed to correct a penile curvature. There have been various modifications of the original technique over the years, but the basic principle of shortening the tunica on the opposite side to the plaque is the basic idea behind modifying the geometry of the penis to provide straightening.
history of the nesbit procedure is
Out of 279 men who received Nesbit surgery, 218 men were followed for 89 months to document the results. 182 of the men were completely satisfied with the results. 188 men achieved complete correction. 190 men had good erectile function. 38 patients complained of excess shortening and 5 patients could not achieve satisfactory intercourse due to shortening. 24 men had major sensory changes in the glans (head) of the penis. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/15474271
Another study followed 42 patients for 84 months. The results concluded 38 of the 42 patients had a straighter penis. 7 patients complained of bumpy and narrow areas, 9 men noticed sensory reduction. 21 patients complained of penis shortening, with 16 of those stating the shortening lessened sexual performance. 32 of the 42 said they were fairly satisfied with the results of the procedure. 10 men reported dissatisfaction, and 6 of those 10 patients said they would not have had the surgery if they could turn the clock back. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12736023
A third study of 47 patients concluded with the main complaint after recovery was penis shortening (28 patients, 60%), experienced negative feeling of the suture during the flaccid state and engorgement (tumescence/swelling) 37 patients, 80%. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23173735
Personally I don't like those odds. If I had to have a surgery with a 20-25% chance of failure, it would not inspire confidence. Basically 1 out of 4 or 5 were very unhappy with the outcome and results. Not a great prognosis for success. The remaining 75-80% were only fairly satisfied. That is anything, but an enthusiastic endorsement.
THE SAFEST alternative treatment
Penile traction has been clinically proven to straighten a bent penis caused by Peyronies Disease in a high percentage of cases. It is medically endorsed in 29 countries around the World. Traction devices provide a safe and non-invasive treatment protocol vs. surgery, complications and recovery.
The traction device manufacturer provides a 100% money back guarantee. No Urologic surgeon can provide any satisfaction guarantee.
Instead of undergoing surgery, I purchased a Size Genetics traction device, and to this day, I can give it my enthusiastic endorsement. It is the original and the best traction device on the market today. To read more about how traction devices work for penis straightening go to their website and do your own research. Make up your mind and be pro-active in your own treatment. Your penis does not belong to your surgeon, it is belongs to you. Make your own informed decision.
