Peyronie's Disease Treatments in London

What Is Peyronie's Disease?

Peyronie's disease occurs where an internal scaring within the penis causes it to bend, shorten, deform, triggering erectile weakness and loss of sensitivity.

This means that sex can be difficult or impossible to achieve. It affects men of all ages and it brought on by injury to the penis or through medical conditions like diabetes and high blood pressure.

The blood vessels of the penis become clogged up with fibrous plaque which restricts the penis from expanding on the afflicted side, causing it to bend, indent or create an hourglass shape when erect. 

Peyronie's Disease can develop overnight or worsen over an 18-month period. It goes through different stages, the acute stage which is normally painful, where the fibrous plaque starts to build up and the chronic phase, where the pain goes and the deformity becomes mature.

Case Studies

Real People. Real Results.

 

  About a year ago I contacted MansMatters – best decision I ever made. I was a little embarrassed to start with but after 1st appointment I was OK....


To all chaps with Peyronie’s and erection issues – when I was 55 I noticed a small hard lump on my penis shaft the size of a pea. This slowly grew to about 30mm. I lived with this in secret which was a mistake in the long run. I read about Peyronie’s and realised it effects about 10% of men. About a year ago I contacted MansMatters – best decision I ever made. I was a little embarrassed to start with but after 1st appointment I was OK.

I’m 58 now and after a course of treatment lump is smaller and still getting smaller, my curve is less and my erections are improving and YES, happy wife and happy life. Please chaps don’t leave it like I did – make the call.

  Having been referred to a consultant urologist, after a rapid increase in curvature...


Having been referred to a consultant urologist, after a rapid increase in curvature (& associated loss of sensitivity), I was given the option of highly invasive surgery or "live with it". I had considered the private option of Xiaflex but wasn’t convinced of the outcome given the cost

  A Google search on current treatments (I hope they had improved) led me to MansMatters. The initial telephone conversation was comprehensive and very honest...


After a gap of 2 – 3 years, I decided it was not good for my overall wellbeing to continue to live with the negative impact of the curvature. A Google search on current treatments (I hope they had improved) led me to MansMatters. The initial telephone conversation was comprehensive and very honest

  This showed a dramatic and continuing improvement from week 2/3 onwards. A 600 horizontal bend reduced to 40 by week 6. ...


Being anal about data, I photographed and measured changes in my erect penis. This showed a dramatic and continuing improvement from week 2/3 onwards. A 600 horizontal bend reduced to 40 by week 6. Residual vertical curvature seems to be dominated by skin that needs to stretch

  I am impressed with the philosophy, expertise, and professionalism....


The combination of Shockwave & Magnetic treatments with supplements and (in my case) an extendo, clearly works. I am impressed with the philosophy, expertise, and professionalism.

  Extremely pleased with the outcome....


Pain was stopped after the very first session. Scaring softened by the third session. Erection was back to normal, fulness and hardness. Still a very slight curve, but I think this was natural. Extremely pleased with the outcome.

  Excellent service, excellent professional doctors...


Excellent service, excellent professional doctors, the treatment was virtually painless and had a significant improvement on my problem. I am very happy with the results of my treatment and would recommend this to everybody who is suffering from Peyronie’s or ED. You will not be disappointed.

  ...thank you for giving me my life back!...


I thought I’d drop you a line to thank you for giving me my life back! As you are aware I suffered with Peyronie’s disease for over 4 years with an upward curvature of 35-40 degrees which made sex impossible. I tried both Xiaflex and Verapamil injections which were hopeless and barely improved the curvature

  It was the best decision I’ve ever made!!!...


It was by chance I came across your website and, after an initial discussion, decided to attend a course of six sessions. It was the best decision I’ve ever made!!! In conjunction with the traction device, just 3 months after my last session my curvature has reduced to around 10 degrees and improves weekly. A great result

  [Thank you] for making the sessions totally relaxed and I enjoyed both of your company....


I cannot thank you enough not only for the fantastic result but for making the sessions totally relaxed and I enjoyed both of your company. Thanks once again.

  Top, top treatment....


Top, top treatment.

  ...the treatment is extremely effective, and I am now clear of the condition....


I was referred to Mr Almashan from my medical consultant in Saudi Arabia, the treatment is extremely effective, and I am now clear of the condition.

  I no longer have a bent penis and my sex life is back to normal...


Within 18 months I went from being a normal male to having a curved penis and severe erectile dysfunction. My GP was quite blasé about it and prescribed me pills for the ED. Eventually I was referred to a Urologist who diagnosed Peyronie’s Disease and stated that I needed to have a procedure which involved cutting open my penis, putting in tubes and a silicon reservoir. Not only would this cost me the price of a car, I would never again be able to have natural erections.

I found the Mansmatters Clinic and the rest is history. I can now report that for a fraction of the price, I no longer have a bent penis and my sex life is back to normal.

  ...the doctors are friendly and very informative with everything....


On coming to the clinic which I found easy (after a 4hr trip), the doctors are friendly and very informative with everything. After my 4th and 5th sesh’ there was improvement and hopefully this will continue. What they do here is by far the best thing I have heard of dealing with Peyronie’s. Long may it continue.P.S. Thanks Steph

  Have since finished the treatment & cannot thank the whole team enough for their understanding, kindness and professionalism which was missing in my life with this condition....


My experience of Peyronie’s started about 4 years ago. I went to see a urologist at Addenbrookes, who said to have an operation which frightened the life out of me. I lived with this problem for about 3 years having no intimacy.

My wife & I decided enough was enough & to seek a 2nd opinion. We went to a clinic in Harley St. which was still off putting, the Dr didn’t show any understanding or empathy at all. Then we found Mans Matters.

I spoke to Charles on the phone who totally understood everything, so we made an appointment to come here. I met Anthony for the first consultation, & he totally changed my perception of the people I had to deal with & the treatment available.

Have since finished the treatment & cannot thank the whole team enough for their understanding, kindness and professionalism which was missing in my life with this condition.

  ...after 4 or 5 treatments I have definitely have much stronger and PAIN FREE erections! ...


My symptoms had been with me for over a year and the curvature and pain were starting to intrude in what (luckily for me) had always been a fantastic sex life with my lady partner of 10 years.

Only time will tell BUT after 4 or 5 treatments I have definitely have much stronger and PAIN FREE erections! And ejaculation feels as good as ever.

FAQ's

How do you differ from other Peyronie’s clinics?

The majority of London clinics specialise in surgical procedures, which cost up to £14,000. Whereas some may own a shockwave machine, they do not specialise in non-invasive procedures and do not have ultra-high powered focus shockwave machines, supported with a range of supporting technologies for optimal success. 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.

How do you get Peyronie’s disease?

Peyronie’s disease can be caused by minor injury to the penis. This injury is often caused by vigorous sexual intercourse, for example, bending the penis during penetration or from undue pressure from your partner’s pubic bone.

It can also be caused by sports injuries, such as a ball hitting the penis or otherwise what appear initially as minor accidents such as being kicked by a child. The injury can then cause scar tissue to develop in the cells of the penis. This scar tissue then forms what is known as the plaque of Peyronie’s disease – a hard lump on the erection tissue.

There are other reasons for Peyronie’s disease plaques formation. Health related issues, such as high blood sugar, tobacco use, or historic pelvic trauma may help cause Peyronie’s disease.

Additionally, men with connective tissue disorders, such as Dupuytren’s contracture, may suffer from it. While there can also be a genetic link where men who have a family member who suffers with Peyronie’s disease have an increased likelihood of getting it.

When Should I See a Men’s Health Specialist?

The sooner that someone with, or who suspects they have Peyronie’s disease, sees a Men’s health specialist, the better the chances for a good outcome.

Here are some potential signs of Peyronie’s disease that you should seek advice about:

  • The penis curves when erect
  • There is a shortening of the penis
  • Narrowing or “hourglass” on the shaft of the penis
  • Lumps in the penis
  • Painful erections or pain during sex
  • Unexpected soft erections

A physical exam by a doctor or other consultant is often sufficient to identify the presence of scar tissue in the penis, allowing the diagnosis of Peyronie’s disease. On occasion, other conditions cause similar symptoms and these need to be ruled out.

During a physical exam, a doctor will investigate the penis through palpation and observation when it’s not erect. This is so that the location and amount of scar tissue can be found. The doctor might also measure the length of your penis. This initial measurement helps determine whether the penis has shortened if the condition continues to worsen.

What is Peyronie’s disease?

Peyronie’s disease is a condition that results from fibrous scar tissue developing on the penis. It causes a curved bend in the penis that can be significant. This bend can often cause painful erections especially during sexual intercourse.

Peyronie’s disease mostly affects men aged over 40, although it can happen at any age. It can also be started following vigorous sexual intercourse (read How do you get Peyronie’s Disease?).

When you get Peyronie’s disease, plaques (segments of flat scar tissue), form beneath the skin of the penis and it is these that cause it to bend or become indented during erections. The plaque (scar tissues) can develop anywhere along the penis and can often be felt through the skin and be painful when touched.

In severe cases, the curve in the penis can make having sexual intercourse painful, difficult, or even impossible.

Peyronie’s disease may also lead to erectile dysfunction with difficulty in getting and/or maintaining an erection.

It is extremely rare for Peyronie’s disease to go away on its own. For the vast majority of men, the condition will remain as is or worsen in stages over a period of time.

Early treatment soon after developing the condition can keep it from getting worse and if using Shockwave therapy alleviate the condition. Even if you’ve had the condition for some time, this treatment can help improve symptoms in the majority of cases. Contact us for further details and confidential consultations.

What Preparation Do I Need to Do Today Before my peyronie’s disease therapy?

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.

Who is Peyronie’s Disease Named After?

Peyronie’s disease (PD) is named after French surgeon François Gigot de la Peyronie, who described the condition in 1743. He described a patient who had “rosary beads of scar tissue to cause an upward curvature of the penis during erection.”

PD is indicated by a curvature in the penile shaft that is often preceded by painful erections and accompanied by an area of fibrosis.

The condition was first described in 1561 in correspondence between Andreas Vesalius a Flemish anatomist, physician, and author of one of the most influential books on human anatomy, De Humani Corporis Fabrica Libri Septem (On the Fabric of the Human Body) and Gabriele Falloppio, an Italian Catholic priest and anatomist often known by his Latin name Fallopius. The Fallopian Tube is named after him.

Why Do People Choose Shockwave Therapy for Peyronie’s?

As outlined in our Peyronie’s Disease Treatment Option page, Shockwave therapy for Peyronie’s disease is the only non-invasive treatment that provides long lasting results without the need for going under the knife or injection therapy.

Will Shockwave Therapy Leave Any Marks or Bruising?

Unless you have a pre-existing condition like haemophilia you will not experience any marks or bruising during or after your treatment.

Is Shockwave Treatment for Peyronie’s Disease Painful?

You may experience mild discomfort, but nothing worse than a moderate visit to the dentist.

Does the Treatment Work 100% for All Patients?

Whilst the majority of patients experience improvements after the initial programme of treatment, Peyronie’s Disease can be a very stubborn condition and in some instances is resistant to all non-invasive treatments and non-surgical treatments.

What Ages of Men Do You Treat?

We can only treat men over the age of 18-years. After that, we have successfully treated men well into their 70's.
