Premature Ejaculation Surgery IN BANGKOK, THAILAND
Premature ejaculation (PE) is a common male sexual dysfunction that has been estimated to affect approximately 30% of men at some stage.
Premature ejaculation occurs when a man ejaculates sooner during sexual intercourse than he or his partner would like. Premature ejaculation is also known as rapid ejaculation, premature climax, or early ejaculation.
Sometimes premature ejaculation is temporary and is not a cause for worry. It can be frustrating if it makes sex less enjoyable and impacts relationships. But if it happens often and causes problems, your healthcare provider may be able to help.
Surgery for Premature Ejaculation
Premature ejaculation can also be treated with surgery, although this should only be considered as a last option when the other methods haven’t worked.
Selective dorsal neurectomy (SDN) is a type of surgery used to decrease the sensitivity of the head of the penis. It is considered a safe and effective treatment for premature ejaculation with a high rate of patient satisfaction. On average, patients have reported that their ejaculation times prolonged by 8-10 minutes post-surgery.
Although complications are rare, they may include numbness, paresthesia, and erectile dysfunction.
The surgery is performed on an outpatient basis under local anesthesia administered at the base of the penis.
