Buried penis syndrome: A unique clinical challenge, says doc

Obesity is the mother of all diseases. Obesity also has morbidities and a Buried penis (hidden penis) could be one of the major problems. Similarly, Shekhar Shah (name changed) visited a city doctor with a buried penis syndrome (BPS)

  • Buried penis syndrome describes a penis, normal in size, but lacking an appropriate sheath of skin. It could be a congenital disorder in which the ‘buried penis’ is located beneath the integument of the abdomen, thigh, or scrotum. The penis may also be buried within its own skin.
  • Dr Deepak K Jumani, professor and sexual health physician attached to JJ Group of Hospitals, Grand Hospital and Mumbai Police Hospital, patented a technique called the DJ SAM (Deepak Jumani’s Sesame Arginine Metformin) approach, to naturally increase the size of the penis.

“Obesity, in itself is a disease. But for someone who is highly obese, even looking at their own penis is a problem due to the tummy. So when Shah came to me, I explained to him about how he could use certain techniques to increase the size of his penis naturally- which I further studied and have patented this technique now. It’s called the DJ SAM (Deepak Jumani’s Sesame Arginine Metformin) approach. It has been published in the European Journal of Molecular and Clinical Medicine (EJMCM),” said Dr Deepak K Jumani, professor and sexual health physician attached to JJ Group of Hospitals, Grand Hospital and Mumbai Police Hospital.

Buried penis (hidden penis) is a congenital or acquired condition in which the penis is partially or completely hidden below the surface of the skin .It is an unusual, difficult-to-treat condition that presents a unique clinical challenge.

According to his research, although no specific approach is applicable to all patients, a combination of various techniques may be applied. “The use of L-arginine gel for erectile dysfunction is well documented. However, the use of sesame seed oil applied topically for penile lengthening has not been reported. Both the ingredients are routinely used and have no known side-effects and are being studied for penile lengthening,” said Dr Jumani.

The study was conducted among 24 patients within the age group of 30 to 45 years. These were with a BMI of or above 36. “The treatment for the comorbid diseases like diabetes, dyslipidaemia, hypertension, Vitamin D deficiency, COPD, UTI continued as per current standard of care,” he explained.

He added, “Although the exact mechanism of action of sesame seed oil for penile lengthening is still not known. This is the first study that demonstrates the use of sesame seed oil as a therapeutic agent along with L-arginine gel for topical application.”
