Penile Implant Surgey Documentary

Award winning television production company Form Films are currently in talks with the BBC to make a documentary about Penile Implant Surgery. If you have personally undergone this type of surgery and are willing to share your experiences with Form Films please contact Larry at larry@formfilms.co.uk .

As was demonstrated in the peyronie's disease videos post (from Channel 4's Embarrassing Illnesses), it really is important for men out there to feel that they aren't alone. To see that others can come out of the other side of conditions such as this is really empowering and removes some of the concerns that many men in this position, no doubt share.

Just to allay fears that some peyronie's disease sufferers may have, penile implant surgery is primarily used in men with erectile dysfunction that fails to respond to all other treatments. It's not a peyronie's specific treatment.

Peyronie's Disease Videos

Previously I posted video from Channel 4's Embarrassing Bodies of a peyronie's disease consultation, and follow up. Recently the show once again featured a segment on peyronie's disease. This time it concentrated on the actual surgical options and the procedure itself (so viewer discretion is advised). For those considering surgery it's really informative and I'm happy that Channel 4 has once again educated millions of its viewers about peyronie's disease.



*2012 Update* Below is another, more recent followup with the gentleman in the above video, as well as discussion with Dr Christian and his colleagues.


Here is a previous peyronie's disease video from 2009. It concentrates on the consultation itself, and the follow up:



On the occasions peyronie's disease has been covered on TV, it has resulted in a surgical resolution. The nature of the show is that a problem is identified, dealt with, and followed up on, in a reasonably short period of time. That doesn't really leave much scope for conservative options like oral treatments, mechanical methods, or coverage of men in the more active stage of the condition. You can also view our peyronie's disease images page for examples of how the condition can manifest itself in those suffering from it.
