Male Urologic Surgery in Ventura County

Urologic Procedures We Provide

Community Memorial urologists offer a wide range of surgeries to the male reproductive system. Below are several of the more common procedures our surgeons perform.


Prostatectomy is the surgical removal of all or part of the prostate.

  • Simple prostatectomy: This procedure involves removal of only part of the prostate. It can be prescribed for urinary retention, recurring urinary tract infections, very slow urination, and other benign conditions.
  • Radical prostatectomy: This procedure removes the entire prostate gland, seminal vesicles, and vas deferens. It’s typically performed for malignant prostate cancer.

Our surgeons perform both conventional and robotic-assisted prostatectomies.

Penile Plication for Peyronie’s

Penile plication is a surgical procedure to correct Peyronie’s disease, an abnormal curvature of the penis during erection. The condition can cause painful erections or erectile dysfunction (ED) and make sexual intercourse impossible. Penile plication attempts to surgically shorten the longer side of the erect penis.

Vasectomy Reversal

While men get vasectomies because they don’t want children or feel their families are complete, circumstances can change over time. There are two approaches to vasectomy reversal:

  • Vasovasostomy: For this procedure, your surgeon makes a small incision in the scrotum, locates the ends of the vas deferens, and isolates them for treatment. Any scar tissue or blockages are removed. The surgeon will then verify that the fluid coming from your testicles contains sperm. If so, the surgeon will perform microsurgery to reconnect the two ends of the vas deferens.
  • Vasoepididymostomy: While performing your vasectomy reversal, your surgeon may discover blockages, scarring, or tears in the vas deferens or the epididymis, a tube which transports sperm to the vas deferens. If that is the case, the surgeon will attempt to repair or bypass the blockage.

Vasectomy reversals are most successful if the man had his vasectomy within ten years of the reversal procedure.
