We generally feel that listing patient testimonials on homepages or forums is problematic, as it is not possible for you as a patient to check to make sure that they are the true opinions of the patients. That is why we have not published anything on this for many years.
Since 2010, however, readers’ requests for patient testimonials have increased so much that we are now presenting three excerpts from letters from our patients with their consent below:
‘For as long as I can remember I have not had a straight penis so I have always had problems with sexual intercourse, which has sometimes led to great strain in my relationships. Not all of the common sexual positions were possible. There was simply no way to have a satisfying sex life. The urologists I asked could not or did not want to help me. “You’ll just have to live with it” I have often been told…too often. While researching on the Internet I came upon you and made an appointment to be examined. You diagnosed my congenital curvature of the penis and Peyronie’s disease resulting from the years of strain. As you know, I then underwent surgery from you on (omitted for reasons of privacy) and now have a straight penis. I would once again like to thank you deeply for this.’
‘Overnight the plaque was suddenly there. It was unbelievable how quickly it developed. I was in quite a panic and immediately made an appointment with a urologist in Ulm. I was horribly afraid of being diagnosed with cancer. He diagnosed me with Peyronie’s disease and prescribed vitamin E and Potaba. I carried on like that off and on for a year but the curvature was not affected. As a final option, my urologist proposed a surgery involving penis tucking. As I recall, it was the Nesbit technique. He also said that this would shorten my penis. I am very thankful for his honesty, because I did not want to undergo that technique and eventually found your institute while researching on the Internet. He was thereby indirectly the reason why I came to you. I was excited about your surgical technique from the beginning because it is logical. Today I am very pleased with the results and I would like to thank you very much. You kept your word and straightened my penis without making it shorter.’
‘Before I acquired the disease, I had never in my life heard anything about abnormal curvature of the penis. I would have thought it was a joke until I personally had a 90° kink upward in my penis. Even during the very first examination my urologist indicated that I would not be able to hope for improvement without surgery and felt that I should contact the UGRS immediately. As far as he knew, your technique is the only one that does not involve shortening the penis. When talking to you I then also learned that the tucking techniques not only shorten the penis but also completely ignore the seat of the disease. I do not understand why doctors then still perform these techniques. At any rate, I underwent surgery from Dr Konstantinos Konstantinidis and am very satisfied. The surgery was already over a year ago and the results are simply correct.’
