Peyronie’s Disease Treatment

What is Peyronie’s Disease (PD)

It’s an acquired curvature of the penis that occurs during an erection.

Peyronie’s Disease results from the formation of scar tissue within the connective tissues lining the erectile bodies of the penis. The general belief is that Peyronie’s Disease results from years of repetitive small injuries to the penis during intercourse, although some men will remember a specific traumatic event to the penis.

Symptoms

Men with PD can present with several symptoms including:

  • Scar tissue which can be felt underneath the skin of the penile shaft
  • Curvature during an erection
  • Penile shortening
  • Penile pain

Disease Phases

There is both an active phase to the disease process and a chronic phase. During the active phase, the scar tissue continues to remodel itself and the curvature may change. A percentage of men will have spontaneous resolution of their symptoms but for those patients who don’t we have several treatment options available.

Treatment Options

There are both surgical and non-surgical treatment options for Peyronie’s Disease:

For men who are not candidates for non-surgical management, there are several surgeries that can be performed to help correct curvature such as penile plication or excision and grafting. A proper workup performed by an experienced urologist will be necessary to decide which options are best for you.
