DR. PAULO EGYDIO IS AN INTERNATIONAL REFERENCE IN THE UROGENITAL FIELD, ESPECIALLY IN PENILE DIAGNOSIS AND TREATMENTS. THOUSANDS OF CLINICAL AND SURGICAL PROCEDURES PERFORMED.
Diabetes is one of the main causes for erectile dysfunction (ED). Besides, most glucose intolerant patients also present loss of size and thinning, because the disease may cause fibrosis to appear inside the penis. We know that are some treatment options available, but the most suitable and efficient method is penile implant. In that case, the most feared complication is post-op infection, considering that a diabetic has a higher risk of presenting penile subcutaneous tissue infection.
Nowadays that’s an easily controllable matter; surgical equipment and existing techniques help avoid and minimize cases of infection. Dr. Egydio monitors the whole pre-op procedure, from blood sugar levels control to a meticulous exam to identify possible penile tissue wounds. If there’s sign of infection, it must be treated before the surgery. He also chooses antibiotic covered prosthesis, and a lot of times applies an extra layer of medicine to make sure the patient gets a good recovery.
Dr. Egydio also uses the “No Touch” Technique associated with the Egydio Technique – penile reconstruction is performed at the same time as the implant placement, with no or minimal touch of skin to suppress contamination risks. When a diabetic gets prosthesis recommendation, it’s essential to diagnose whether the penis has thinned or shortened in order to make the correction in the same procedure. Otherwise there’s a possibility the patient will end up unsatisfied with a smaller penis and low self-esteem. Solution involves relaxing incisions in more than one spot, attempting to restore most size and girth (up to the limit of nerves and vessels). Watch this video demonstration on how these concepts apply in an erect penis during surgery, aiming for the best possible result.
