A great experience from start to finish, communication, expertise, care and aftercare, all second to none. I'm so pleased with the results, no pain or discomfort. I'm now much more confident and happier I myself, I cant thank you all enough. Please pass on my thanks to all of the team and I look forward to seeing you again in the future! Best regards, P

    As a medical doctor myself, I have a low tolerance for any failings in colleagues. Patients should always be respected, and always come first, but unfortunately there are many doctors who do not meet the very high standards expected within our profession. Mr Garaffa, however, not only meets these, but exceeds them. He is an exceptional surgeon and provided me with the best patient experience I have encountered. If you have been considering penis enlargement and cannot find your way through all the false information out there, rest assured that even though I am a physician I endured the same difficulties in trying to ascertain if surgery offers a solution. Now, I can 100% reassure you that it does - indeed so much so that I have toyed with the idea of working within professional promotion of penis enlargement surgery to try and help all those men out there who have struggled with feelings of inadequacy their entire lives. It works and, what is more, having also been to the largest centre for this in the world (Germany), there is no one I have met that I would trust as much as Mr Garaffa in this, even within his own practice. If you haven't struggled with the problem then you will never understand, but this surgery can be truly life-changing. My sincere thanks to Mr Garaffa for his professionalism, his understanding and for working so many years to hone his exceptional surgical skills.

    The operation completely transformed my life. After years of enduring shame and psychological problems due to having a small penis I now am rebuilding my life and starting to enjoy living. My confidence is increasing and feels more ‘normal’. I cannot thank this doctor enough for providing this service.

    I suffered from Peyronie’s Disease it was awkward and embarrassing when intimate. I was apprehensive about surgery and I researched options. I found International Andrology and the grafting technique. My Doctor put me at ease on the first nerve-wracking consultation. A full assessment and prognosis with plenty of time to consider. My procedure was textbook and the Doctor was attentive before and after surgery. The result is amazing and IA team have been brilliant. My self-confidence has been restored and my embarrassment banished.

    International Andrology did an excellent job for me! Mr Garaffa was able to diagnose in a few minutes something I had sporadically lived with for thirty years. He recommended shockwave treatment and the results have been great. Together with a 5gm Tadalafil tablet daily my condition has largely been cured. For those on a limited income who may say “it is too much money” I would say “what price happiness?” The outcome for me has been transformational - both physically and psychologically.

    The doctor was highly competent and approachable. The assessment was holistic and thorough. The procedure was seamless and efficient. And the clinic was clean and professional. The aftercare and other staff were also very good. Overall, the experience was as good as I could have hoped for and matched the price of the service.

    Firstly let me say that I was so relieved to find a surgeon who could perform this operation after years of struggling with the effects of Peyronie’s disease, the psychological and emotional impact of which was very difficult and the NHS could only offer an old approach to this illness which seemed like ‘butchery’ in comparison to what the surgeon is trained in. Secondly, I'd like to say what a good surgeon Mr Garaffa is!! The treatment went really well, I felt cared about and looked after both by the doctor and his assistant, the nursing staff were compassionate and the new facilities at the new clinic looked even better which I am sure will benefit future patients.

    Mr Garaffa was great at providing information about the procedure, attentive to the things that needed to be corrected. Currently still in the healing process so the final result of the outcome of the operation is still unknown but so far so good. Everyone at the clinic was polite and organised.

    I had spent years worrying and unhappy with the size and shape of my body, it had been so bad it was affecting my wellbeing and relationships. Initially seeking and not receiving support from my GP I spoke with the team at International Andrology and met Mr Garaffa. The staff were friendly and welcoming and very personable the building light and less sterile than I expected. During our consultation we discussed my situation, options and expectations regarding overcoming the issues I was having. Mr Garaffa spoke In depth about the options available to me speaking with warmth and like an individual human being not how my GP reacted to me! I made my decision supported by family and underwent my procedure. Mr Garaffa and all his staff were incredible, explaining at every opportunity what would take place, allowing me the opportunity to make informed sensible decisions that has greatly improved not only my personal wellbeing but also my relationship with my partner. Life changing.
