Dr. Burman, PE surgeon, recommends stretching
The thread on Doctor behind Extenders a fraud reminded me of a couple other threads about another PE surgeon. When I was just a few days into PE, I was googling for some information on PE devices and came across Dr. Sheldon O. Burman’s homepage, http://www.lengthandgirth.com/
Basically, he is portrayed in those threads as an arrogant hack that believes in circumcision and did a botched PE surgery.
While working my way through school, I used to work as “house manager” (read: “houseboy” or “servant”) for Dr.Burman’s family in the 1980’s. At the time, he was a cardio-pulmonary surgeon. His basic credentials are real. The Burmans are Jewish. Some would describe him as arrogant; he would freely describe it simply as Jewish chutzpah. E.g., the man is so proud of the initials that his parents naively gave him at birth, he likes to have “S.O.B.” monogrammed on his luggage, attache, etc. While I myself am anti-circumcision, it’s understandable why Burman—being Jewish—would favor circumcison. Just because a surgeon may come across to some as having poor bedside manners (e.g., arrogant) and believes in circumcision does not make him a poor PE surgeon.
If you follow the links and read about the “botched surgery,” it says that he had an “assistant” surgeon with him who was relieved of his position as a result of the malpractice suit. I don’t know, but I suspect that the “assistant” may have been the primary surgeon. I have my own issues with surgeons, but they’re not God (even when they think they are, even if patients want them to be). I don’t know the details of the one Burman malpractice case that’s reported on the web. If I were to ask Burman to operate on me, I’d certainly dig deeper about that particular case. But if I expect doctors to be infallible and omnipotent, then I could never go to a doctor at all.
Through his website, Burman sells a “penis vacuum” for impotence, and a “penis stretcher device.” Granted, the items are overpriced. Knowing Dr. Burman, I’m not surprised. He implies your insurance might pick up most of the $450 on the penis pump. But for me, it gave credibility to PE by stretching. The description of the stretcher reads:
“It is most effective when worn after penile lengthening surgery. To prevent loss of gain from scar contraction after surgery, patients wear it a minimum of 4 hours a day for 4 months. Patients who have worn a weight device or their penis stretcher for over 4 years have reported length gains of over 4 inches. Without surgery, worn by itself for several months, it will achieve permanent length gain. No interference with erections, ejaculation, fertility or sensation. No girth gain.”
The site also says that this is the “only clinically documented penis enlarger for permanent lengthening of the penis without surgery.” Maybe one of these days I’ll call him myself to ask for the documentation. Just the same, it was very reassuring in starting my PE routine to have a surgeon I know—even if he prides himself in being S.O.B—say that stretching actually works.
