FAQ’s – Peyronie’s Disease Shockwave Therapy
Focused Shockwave treatment for Peyronie’s Disease is a medically approved, non-invasive clinical procedure that has been employed for over-25 years to treat a number of conditions ranging from the breaking of kidney stones, without the need for surgery, to Alzheimer’s.
A shockwave is an extreme and short acoustic energy wave, which travels faster than the speed of sound. Shockwave therapy breaks down Peyronie’s Disease plaque in the penis. This eliminates both the curvature and also triggers the growth of new and revitalised blood vessels, enabling fuller and harder erections.
The majority of London clinics specialise in surgical procedures, which cost up to £14,000. While some may own a shockwave machine, they do not specialise in this area and do not have extensive experience of the machine or the best course of treatment. In the majority of circumstances, they will recommend invasive surgery.
Whilst we are not opposed to invasive surgery, we see this as the last resort and have only on very rare occasions had to refer patients.
In addition, not all shockwave technology is the same. There are many inferior technologies that are perfectly good for orthopaedic treatments but not for Peyronie’s disease, where the shockwaves need focusing directly into the effected region.
We use Swiss engineered Storz DUOLITH® SD1 which is recognised in the medical field as the leading shockwave technology. This allows us to use effective focussed shockwaves.
You will be assessed for eligibility at an initial consultation. The standard treatment programme for Peyronie’s disease consists of six bi-weekly or weekly, 30-minute visits. If you are being treating for ED and Peyronies disease a bespoke treatment programme will be prescribed by the consultant.
You will need to provide us with your medical history and full details of any medication you are currently taking, so we can ensure you are a candidate for shockwave therapy. You should also remove excess hair from the penile regions and ensure good hygiene before the visit.
