Penile Scrotal Web (Turkey Neck)

Dr. Reed,  How do you treat a penile scrotal web? Looks like a turkey-neck.


Dear Roger,

Penile-scrotal webs are the specialty of the house.  We do several cases every year.  You will look longer and the end result should be like you envisioned for yourself. Penile-scrotal webs are a normal variant, not always fairly attributed to an overzealous circumcision .  The idea is to keep the penile closure point in the midline, the limbs of the V-Y plasty obliquely on the scrotum where folds more naturally occur.

Below are some photos of patients we have seen, and the third is post-op.  Neat enough?
