is there any other treatment for strictures of the penis other than stretching
Dr Joseph Schoeman
Dr Joseph Schoeman
Definitely yes. Dilatation is good for initial treatment or for those blokes that prefer a non surgical approach. For the guys that want a permanent solution surgery is available. Better delineation of the extent of the stricture can be obtained by means of a urethragram or a MRI. Depending on the length of the stricture different techniques are available: Short strictures can be treated with an excision and primary anastomosis. Longer strictures are done in stages utilizing buccal mucosa or penile skin. There is help available.
