The 24th World Meeting on Sexual Medicine: Innovation and Education Towards a Holistic Approach in Sexual Health

The 24th World Meeting on Sexual Medicine: Innovation and Education Towards a Holistic Approach in Sexual Health The 24th World Meeting on Sexual Medicine: Innovation and Education Towards a Holistic Approach in Sexual Health

With a blend of cutting-edge science, clinical expertise, and a range of delegates from across the world – the strides that can and have been made in sexual health management are hard to downplay thanks to the World Meeting on Sexual Medicine (WMSM).

Dating back to 1978, when the 1st WMSM was held, the society quickly established biennial meetings and a family of journals – helping to bring the science of sexual medicine in women and men to the world.

Becoming a leader in the field of sexual medicine.

The 24th WMSM and Moorgate Andrology

Held in Dubai from the 15th – 17th of December 2023, Moorgate Andrology is proud to announce two of our very own doctors are attending and will be delivering their own keynote address.

Dr Greta Peciulte and Dr Nenad Djakovic have written a paper on the treatment and management of Peyronie’s Disease, specifically based on their experiences correcting the curvature that is a common symptom of the condition.

Although it is hard to get a true representation of the numbers thanks to the nature of the disease, it is believed that around 1 in 20 UK men suffer from the symptoms of Peyronie’s disease, which can include:

  • Hard lumps on one or more sides of the penis, which can lead to the curvature and shortening
  • Painful erections
  • Very difficult or impossible sexual relations
  • Erectile dysfunction

The paper, entitled:

The comparison of a slightly modified geometrical principles based Peyronie’s plaques incision and grafting technique, and the non-geometrical surgical techniques: A long term single centre experience’

explores the differences in Peyronie’s disease surgery and the benefits this alternative approach brings to patients living with such a complex, painful, and upsetting disease.

Why choose Moorgate Andrology for Peyronie’s Disease treatment?

On the NHS, surgical treatment for Peyronie’s Disease is essentially confined to the Nesbit procedure.

The Nesbit procedure does straighten the penis and correct curvature but also affects penile length and can result in a loss of 1-2 inches if patients present with a curvature of 40° or more.

Because of this, Moorgate Andrology has become an advocate for alternative surgical treatments, including plaque incision and grafting and the STAGE technique.

These treatments can be vastly more beneficial for patients, giving such benefits as:

  • Retaining more sensation
  • Protecting or increasing penile length and girth- as less is removed
  • Losing less penile strength
  • Experiencing less reoccurrence
  • Improving straightening rates

For some patients then, choosing a private provider such as Moorgate Andrology, means that they are actively seeking the most up-to-date science, clinical expertise, and therefore treatment possible.

Watch this space for more information about the paper and how it is received at the event – we look forward to sharing this with you.

The whole team and David Mills, MD of Moorgate Andrology wish to pass on their best wishes and wish the doctors luck ahead of their upcoming presentation.

We are delighted that our presentation has been accepted by the World Congress on sexual medicine in Dubai. I particularly want to congratulate Dr Greta Peciulyte and Dr Nenad Djakovic. They work tirelessly in Moorgate Andrology delivering a very high standard of care to our patients. This paper on their work in Peyronie’s disease is an example of how they have improved and expanded the treatment options to the UK population, through Moorgate Andrology

None of this would be possible without the patients who trust us to help them with their most personal problems – we aim to keep pushing the boundaries of sexual medicine to stay at the forefront of innovation and help as many patients as we can.
