Male Sexual Health Issues Presented by Dr. Paul E. Perito


A graduate of the University of Maryland’s School of Medicine, Dr. Paul E. Perito has worked in Australia and Africa, with his overseas work helping create an international studies elective at the University of Maryland. Dr. Paul E. Perito now demonstrates his revolutionary penile implantation procedure to doctors around the country and abroad. The procedure, called infra-pubic implantation, places the implant above the penis via a small incision, resulting in a less painful surgery, as well as providing a quicker recovery time.

Urological surgeon Dr. Paul E. Perito says that the male reproductive system may present unusual symptoms.

There are literally dozens of issues that can affect a man’s sexual well-being, says Dr. Paul E. Perito. Many are well known, like erectile dysfunction, but there are other issues, such as retrograde ejaculation, that aren’t in the spotlight as often. In this brief article, Dr. Paul E. Perito offers information on some lesser-known defects of the male reproductive system.

Hematospermia – This condition is associated with discolored ejaculatory fluid, reports Dr. Paul E. Perito. It is widely believed that the majority of cases come from irritation to the prostate or the seminal vessels. In itself, hematospermia is not considered life-threatening condition, although in rare cases, it can present as a symptom of prostate cancer and should be checked out by medical professional, cautions Dr. Paul E. Perito.

Gender Identity Disorder: While it is not considered a physical disorder, gender identity disorder can affect a man’s ability to have sex, due to the emotional strains of severe discomfort in his own body, says Dr. Paul E. Perito. GID is characterized predominantly by the individual’s disassociation with his or her own naturally assigned gender. Dr. Paul E. Perito reports that after prolonged and comprehensive care by a mental health professional, individuals may initiate transformation of their body into the opposite sex, via surgery or hormone treatments.

Micropenis: According to Dr. Paul E. Perito, micropenis is a condition characterized by an extremely small penile shaft. In order to diagnose micropenis a surgeon will take into account both the circumference and length of the penis. Hormonal abnormalities are often the cause of this condition, which is usually identified shortly after birth, reports Dr. Paul E. Perito.

Priapism: Priapism is described as a persistent erection that is not associated with arousal, cites Dr. Paul E. Perito. Left untreated, this condition can cause structural damage as well as loss of function of the penis. Risk factors for this condition include sickle cell disease and other hematologic disorders, says Dr. Paul E. Perito. Minimally invasive surgical techniques may be used to help blood from the penis drain naturally. Less commonly, reports Dr. Paul E. Perito, a surgeon will have to create a shunt so that the blood can drain back into the body.

Penoscrotal Web: This condition gives the appearance of a “Turkey Neck” on the underside of the penile shaft. The condition may be congenital – present at birth – or the effect of an overly aggressive circumcision, reports Dr. Paul E. Perito. Surgical correction of a penoscrotal web is an outpatient procedure that involves a re-creation of the natural penoscrotal angle or a Z-plasty, which redistributes skin and renders a natural look.

According to Dr. Paul E. Perito, this is not a comprehensive list of male sexual disorders and notes that there are many issues that science has yet to find a treatment for. He recommends consultation with either a primary care physician or urologist for issues regarding male sexual health.


Dr. Paul E. Perito graduated from the University Of Maryland School Of Medicine in 1988. His Coral Gables, Florida, urology center, Perito Urology, draws patients from around the globe for its innovative and updated Erectile Dysfunction treatments. Having successfully performed over 3,000 penile implants since 2005, Dr. Paul E. Perito is considered a leader in the field. His signature minimally invasive technique, The Perito Approach, has been taught to surgeons worldwide through travel and at Coral Gables Hospital, where he is Director of Urology. Dr. Paul E Perito has participated in countless medical studies in his quest to simplify the penile implant process and make the procedure safer for his patients.
