Answer

No recommended surgical treatment exists for premature ejaculation.

Before the availability of nonsurgical methods for treating erectile dysfunction, a patient with premature ejaculation who was mistakenly diagnosed with erectile dysfunction might have undergone a penile prosthesis implantation, which would have yielded unsatisfactory results because of the incorrect initial diagnosis. In this scenario, the patient would be able to engage in sexual intercourse, because the penile implant would provide an adequate erection, but he would still climax prematurely.
