If a teen is going through puberty and gets peyronie's disease. If he gets plaque removal surgery, then can his penis still grow larger after ?

In brief: Question Peyronie's

This would be very unusual for a teenager & thus wonder if this is an accurate diagnosis.
Teen in question may have upward curvature of his penis as a congenital defect. If so might be amenable to some surgical correction. Second opinion by an experienced pediatric urologist might be considered. Penis will noe grow larger if puberty incomplete.

In brief: See below

Depends on the age of the child.
Talk to your urologist, in all likelihood the growth of the particular organ has finished at this point.

In brief: Most likely

My understanding is that the procedure involves releasing the tissue causing the problem, it should not affect the penis ability to respond to testosterone but i would ask the urologist if procedure can wait until he is done with puberty.
