Birmingham prostate clinic boasts some of the UK’s top urologists who offer treatment for urethral strictures, Peyronie’s disease, BXO and vasectomy reversal surgery. We are also happy to offer patients second opinions.

Peyronie’s disease is a condition which affects the penis, usually causing painful erections, lumps in the penis and a bend in the erection. Although it can be progressive, it is not a malignant (cancerous) condition and it is not life-threatening.

Lichen sclerosus is a skin condition that affects the penis in men and vulva in women. Symptoms include itching, soreness and changes in the appearance of affected skin. The condition affects the foreskin and end of the penis, but can occur at any age, including childhood. Lichen sclerosus in males used to be called Balanitis Xerotica Obliterans or BXO.

A urethral stricture is a narrowing of a section of the urethra. The urethra is a tube, or ‘water pipe’ which carries urine from the bladder. A urethral stricture is a narrowing of the urethra, resulting in symptoms such as difficulties passing urine. Birmingham Prostate Clinic consultant urologist Mr Paul Anderson is one of the UK’s leading experts in the treatment of urethral strictures, carrying out in excess of 100 urethroplasties each year.

A vasectomy is an operation to cut and seal off the tubes (each called the vas deferens) that carry sperm from the testicles to your penis. The Birmingham Prostate Clinic provides specialist expertise in vasectomy reversal surgery.
