During the conference of ESSM (European Society for Sexual Medicine), recently held in Madrid, Konstantinos Konstantinidis, Surgeon, Urologist -Andrologist, Head of the Department of Sexology-Andrology at the Athens Medical Center, was rewarded for the work presented related to the geometrical surgical procedure and treatment of Peyronie's Disease. The work was rewarded for the quality of the surgical technique and the large number of cases studied.
Peyronie's Disease is a peculiar condition which has no clear causes nor pharmaceutical solution to date, while the medical community as a whole has not fully adopted one of the available surgical techniques. As a result, there is confusion as to what is the appropriate method to address this particular condition.
The work of Mr. Konstantinides, due to the large volume of cases studied, convinced that the technique with a mathematical geometric model for selection of graft, can be the golden rule in the surgical solution. Throughout the duration of the conference, Mr. Konstantinidis and his team presented in detail the method focusing on the extensive postoperative monitoring period that exceeds five years.
“The new award comes to warrant the rich experience that our team holds in surgery of the genital organs, both in Greece and abroad. In recent years we have operated on more than 5.000 cases relating to specific diseases, managing to improve the quality of life of our patients. We are optimistic that our work has paved the way for the effective treatment of Peyronie's Disease, demonstrating in practice the commitment of the Athens Medical Group to always stay one step ahead”, stated Mr. Konstantinides.
