Surgical Treatment of the Buried Penis

Urology, Volume 30, Issue 6: Pages 554-559, December 1987.


From the University of California, Davis, School of Medicine, Sacramento California


The "buried penis" occurs in a spectrum which varies from slight with only ventral webbing to almost complete buring of the penis dorsally in the prepubic fat pad ad ventrally in the scrotum. From 1979 to 1985, the author operated on 80 children with these problems. Indications for surgery ranged from unsatisfactory appearance of the penis before and after circumcision to almost complete concealment of the penis. Satisfactory cosmetic and functional results were achieved in most cases utilizing several surgical principles. The limitations of these procedures and their possible complications are described.

Presented at the 81st Annual Meeting of American Urology Association, Inc., New York, New York. May 15, 1986.
