PEYRONIE'S DISEASE TREATMENT OPTIONS
Peyronie’s disease treatment options include oral medication or topical treatments applied externally to relieve the pain. Your doctor or urologist may prescribe these, but none of these treatments will stop the progression of the disease. However there is evidence that in 10% of cases where patients are suffering minor Peyronie’s disease, their condition may go away naturally or they may be left with minor penis curvature.
Penile Pump Peyronie’s Disease
This will involve a series of penis stretching exercises and the use of a vacuum pump to strengthen the penis and reduce the bend. You will need to use the vacuum pump twice a day for 10-minutes each time. Mechanical modelling is used in conjunction with Xiapex Injection therapy, will break down the plaque in the penis.

(1) Vacuum therapy can improve or stabilise the curvature of PD
There are no medically approved injections to treat PD in the UK, though in other parts of the world there are. In the USA the Food and Drug Administration have approved the use of a drug that contains an enzyme, collagenase. This is injected directly into the plaque in the penis to destroy it and reduce the curvature.
Four cycles of treatment are needed over several weeks for the injections to work. The trial that led to approval of injections in the USA saw a 35 percent improvement in curvature. The makers of the drug say that they withdrew it from Europe to concentrate on their home market.
(2) Results suggest that these injections appear to be safe and provide significant clinical improvements in men presenting with atypical PD.
Shockwave Therapy Peyronie’s Disease
This is now the gold standard of Peyronie’s disease treatment options. A technology pioneered to break up kidney and gallstones, now breaks ups and clears plaque in the penis. It is non-invasive, is a low pain treatment and many men have completely straight penises after just a few weeks. A beneficial side effect are stronger erections and more spontaneous natural erections. Contact us for details.
We have treated hundreds of men with PD with our non-invasive treatment programme, and you can read some of their reviews on our Peyronie’s Disease Case Studies page and further handwritten copies when you visit our clinic. Whilst the majority of patients experience immediate improvements after the initial programme of treatment, Peyronie’s Disease is a very stubborn condition and in some instances is resistant to all non-invasive treatments and non-surgical treatments.
(3) Review of the Current Status of Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy in ED & PD
Magneto Transduction Therapy (MTT) offers a non-invasive approach to address various types of pain and injury. Its remarkable potential extends to improving men’s sexual health, specifically targeting conditions such as Peyronie’s Disease, Erectile Dysfunction (ED), and Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome (CPPS).
Within our comprehensive treatment protocols, the inclusion of this groundbreaking therapy has become essential. By combining Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT), Nano Vi Exo, and Functional Magnetic Stimulation (TESLA Chair) with MTT, we have witnessed remarkable transformations for individuals struggling with a range of men’s health conditions. This powerful integration has truly revolutionised the treatment landscape.
NanoVi® helps in the repair cell damage and in the repair of DNA caused by lifestyle, age, and the types of food you eat. It does this by boosting your immune system, and at the same time improving your energy, and slowing the aging process. The NanoVi® does this non-invasively and without using harmful chemicals while helping to repair the endothelial functions in the penis as well as in the prostate area.
A robust and fulfilling erection, necessary for satisfying sexual intercourse, relies on a significant influx of blood into the penis. However, when the endothelial function is compromised, the smooth muscle cells lining the penile region fail to relax adequately, leading to inadequate blood flow and unsatisfactory results.
In the past, the endothelium was primarily viewed as a relatively passive cell layer. Nevertheless, ongoing research has shed light on its surprising array of functions, particularly in relation to Peyronie’s Disease (PD) and Erectile Dysfunction (ED) within our clinic.
Consequently, it becomes imperative to take proactive measures to overcome PD and ED, allowing for the restoration of spontaneous and pleasurable penetrative experiences, without relying solely on the temporary efficacy of “little blue pills” that may diminish in effectiveness over time.
This non-surgical and painless procedure ensures a safe experience for our patients that takes about thirty minutes to conduct. The treatment is administered at our clinic, simultaneously with other procedures shown here to amplify the overall effectiveness and long-term outcomes of our approach.
To perform the E-Shot™, we extract a small quantity of blood from your body, isolating the vital components that play a pivotal role in your natural healing processes. These potent elements are then injected directly and painlessly into your penile tissues, promoting rejuvenation and optimal function.
The E-Shot™ is a well-established medical treatment designed to invigorate the penis by stimulating the growth of new blood vessels and tissue, ultimately rejuvenating the organ and heightening sensitivity within it.
Stem cell therapy holds significant promise in providing therapeutic solutions for various medical conditions affecting men. One area where stem cell therapy may be beneficial is in the treatment of Peyronie’s disease. PD can arise from various factors which can impair blood flow to the penis. Stem cells, with their unique regenerative properties, have the potential to repair damaged blood vessels and promote tissue regeneration in the penile region. By injecting stem cells into the affected area, it is believed that they can enhance blood vessel formation and improve erectile function, offering hope for men dealing with PD.
Stem Cell Therapy
Another potential application of stem cell therapy in men is in the treatment of male infertility. Infertility affects a significant number of couples. This approach has shown promising results in animal studies, and if successfully translated to human applications, it could offer new possibilities for couples struggling with male infertility.
Furthermore, stem cell therapy may hold promise for the treatment of certain urological conditions, such as urinary incontinence or benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). Urinary incontinence can be a distressing condition for men, particularly after prostate surgery. Stem cells have the ability to differentiate into various cell types, including those involved in the structure and function of the urinary system. By injecting stem cells into the affected area, it is hoped that they can regenerate damaged tissues and improve bladder control. Similarly, in the case of BPH, stem cell therapy may aid in reducing prostate enlargement and alleviating associated symptoms, potentially offering an alternative to more invasive treatment options.
While the potential of stem cell therapy in treating various conditions affecting men is exciting, it’s important to note that much of the research is still in its early stages, and further clinical trials and studies are needed to establish the safety and efficacy of these treatments. Nevertheless, the regenerative capabilities of stem cells offer promising avenues for addressing men’s health concerns, potentially improving the quality of life for many individuals.
Peyronie’s Disease Surgery
Surgery is the most extreme and life-changing of the Peyronie’s disease treatment options. Prior to Focused shockwave therapy it was the only option for many men.
Penile Implants – Peyronie’s Disease
Penile implants have been used to treat severe cases of Peyronie’s disease that lead to a curved penis and painful erections. It is commonly used when patients experience both Peyronie’s Disease and Erectile Dysfunction.
The implant is inserted within the penis and is operated by a mechanical pump that is used to create an erection. Normal, natural and spontaneous erections can no longer be achieved and penis sensitivity and penile length is reduced depending on what prothesis is used.
(4) The journal, Sexual Medicine reported in 2018 that 52% of men undergoing this treatment were unhappy about the outcome, while 60% of partners were dissatisfied due to poor penile girth and the sensation of unnatural intercourse.
Surgical Graft – Peyronie’s Disease
This surgery has been the procedure for men with complex or severe penile curvature and can only be performed at the stable, chronic stage of Peyronie’s Disease, normally after a period of 18-months.
It entails cutting out most of the fibrous plaque and replacing it with an animal or synthetic graft patch to fill the gap. The nerves at the top of the penis or Urethra are dissected prior to the main operation and replaced when surgery is complete.
Grafting procedures are normally carried out where there is severe curvature and the starting penile length is too short, to undertake penile plication. This surgery carries a risk of post-operative erectile dysfunction and a loss of sensitivity in the penis. Post op patients are required to undertake penile stretching and take medication.
(5) The journal Translational Andrology & Urology advise that patients offered this treatment should be advised about its adverse effects and negative outcomes, such as persistent or recurrent curvature, diminished sensation at the glans penis, diminished erectile function, or penile shortening.
Surgery – Penile Plication
This is the last of the Peyronie’s disease treatment options covered on this page. Penile Plication surgery is normally undertaken with patients who don’t also suffer erectile dysfunction and experience a moderate curvature of less than 60 degrees.
This procedure can only be performed in the stable chronic phase of Peyronies disease, normally 18-months after of the onset of the condition. It involves shortening the long side of the penis (as experienced when erect) to match the side where the fibrous plaque is located. A patient will experience a 1 cm loss in overall penile length for every 15 degrees curvature. This can result in a shortening of the penis length by as much as 5 cm.
In addition to accepting loss in penile length, many patients complain that sutures and knots in the penis are uncomfortable.
(6) The Yale School of Medicine report that risks from this procedure involves incomplete correction of curvature, a small risk of temporary or permanent changes in sensation to the penis, and rare risk of erectile dysfunction and that almost all patients will experience some degree of shortening to the penis that usually is about 3/4 of an inch.
Was it a good idea? Was it worth it? In a shot…YES!
I have seen a significant improvement in matters. Curvature has lessened to about 50-60% of what it was. Narrowing has seen the biggest improvement. This is massively better. ED – virtually non-existent now.
Yes, it is pricey…It’s worth every penny, I’m so glad I opted for it and so is the girlfriend : ).
