PEYRONIE'S DISEASE YOUR TREATMENT OPTIONS
Shockwave Therapy for Peyronie's Disease
The most innovative Peyronie’s disease treatment option has become the gold standard in addressing Peyronie’s disease. Originally developed for breaking up kidney and gallstones, this technology is now used to dissolve plaque in the penis. Not only is it a non-invasive procedure with minimal discomfort, but many men have achieved remarkable results with complete straightening of their penises within just a few weeks. A further benefit reported by patients includes stronger and more spontaneous natural erections. Please contact us for more information.
With our non-invasive treatment program, we have successfully helped numerous men overcome Peyronie’s disease. We can send you firsthand accounts of their experiences, and we also have handwritten testimonials available at our clinic. While the majority of patients observe immediate improvements after completing the initial treatment program, it’s important to note that Peyronie’s disease can be a persistent condition and may, in some cases, exhibit resistance to non-invasive and non-surgical interventions.
(1) Review of the Current Status of Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy in ED & PD
With the experiences gained using Shockwave therapy at our clinic our resident urologists are now using the following therapies in association with Shockwave to ensure the best outcomes for our clients.
Extracorporeal Magneto Transduction Therapy (EMTT) 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.
A strong and gratifying erection, crucial for satisfactory sexual intercourse, heavily relies on a substantial influx of blood into the penis. However, when the endothelial function, responsible for lining the blood vessels, is compromised, the smooth muscle cells in the penile region struggle to relax adequately. This results in insufficient blood flow and unsatisfactory outcomes.
In the past, the endothelium was predominantly regarded as a relatively passive layer of cells. However, ongoing research has unveiled its remarkable range of functions, particularly concerning Peyronie’s Disease (PD) and Erectile Dysfunction (ED) in our clinic.
Therefore, it becomes essential to take proactive steps to overcome PD and ED, enabling the restoration of spontaneous and pleasurable penetrative intercourse. This approach goes beyond relying solely on the temporary effectiveness of “little blue pills,” which may diminish in efficacy over time.
Our non-surgical and painless procedure guarantees a safe and comfortable experience for our patients, with a duration of approximately thirty minutes. The treatment is conveniently conducted at our clinic, complementing other procedures showcased here to maximize the overall effectiveness and long-term results of our approach.
To carry out the E-Shot™, a small sample of your blood is extracted from your body, isolating the crucial components that play a fundamental role in your natural healing mechanisms. These potent elements are then painlessly and directly injected into your penile tissues, stimulating rejuvenation and promoting optimal function.
The E-Shot™ is a proven medical procedure specifically developed to revitalise the penis by promoting the growth of new blood vessels and tissue. This comprehensive treatment aims to rejuvenate the organ, resulting in increased sensitivity and enhanced overall function.
Peyronie’s Disease Surgery
Surgery is the most extreme and life-changing of the Peyronie’s disease treatment options. Prior to Focused shockwave therapy and our unique combination of other therapies, it was the only option for many men and in UK hospitals this is still the preferred method of treating PD. However, it usually leaves men with a shorter penis together with a reduced girth and lack of sensitivity during sexual intercourse. The prescribed medication that has helped PD sufferers is not available in the UK. For these reasons we have developed our unique protocols. If you are in any doubt about their effectiveness you should discuss your issues with our consultants and also take time to read some of the testimonials written by our satisfied clients.
Penile Pump Peyronie’s Disease
Treatment for Peyronie’s disease typically includes a combination of penis stretching exercises and the use of a vacuum pump to enhance penile strength and minimise curvature. The recommended routine involves using the vacuum pump twice a day for 10-minute sessions. Additionally, a mechanical modeling technique may be employed alongside Xiapex Injection therapy, which helps break down the plaque that causes the curvature in the penis.
(2) Vacuum therapy can improve or stabilise the curvature of PD
In the UK, there are currently no medically approved injections specifically designed for treating Peyronie’s disease. However, it’s worth noting that such injections are available in other parts of the world. In the United States, for instance, the Food and Drug Administration has approved the use of a drug containing an enzyme called collagenase. This medication is directly injected into the plaque within the penis, effectively breaking it down and reducing curvature.
To achieve the desired results, a treatment regimen involving four cycles of injections administered over several weeks is typically required. Clinical trials conducted for the approval of these injections in the United States demonstrated a 35 percent improvement in curvature. The manufacturers of the drug have stated that they decided to withdraw it from the European market in order to focus on their domestic market.
(3) Results suggest that these injections appear to be safe and provide significant clinical improvements in men presenting with atypical PD.
Penile Implants – Peyronie’s Disease
Penile implants have been utilized as a treatment option for severe cases of Peyronie’s disease, characterised by a curved penis and painful erections. This approach is commonly employed when individuals experience both Peyronie’s disease and erectile dysfunction.
The implant is surgically inserted into the penis and functions through a mechanical pump that is operated to generate an erection. However, it is important to note that the ability to achieve normal, natural, and spontaneous erections is no longer possible with this implant. Additionally, depending on the type of prosthesis used, there may be a reduction in penis sensitivity and penile length.
(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
Surgical intervention has been the established procedure for men experiencing complex or severe penile curvature and can only be performed during the stable, chronic stage of Peyronie’s disease, typically after an 18-month period.
The surgical technique involves excising a major portion of the fibrous plaque and substituting it with a graft patch derived from animal or synthetic materials to fill the resulting gap. Prior to the main operation, the nerves located at the top of the penis or the urethra are carefully dissected and subsequently restored upon completion of the surgery.
Grafting procedures are typically performed when there is severe curvature and the initial length of the penis is inadequate for penile plication. However, it is important to note that this surgery carries a risk of post-operative ED and a potential decrease in penile sensitivity. Following the operation, patients are usually instructed to engage in penile stretching exercises and adhere to medication regimens.
(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
Penile plication surgery represents the final option for treating Peyronie’s disease discussed on this page. It is typically recommended for patients who do not experience erectile dysfunction and have a moderate curvature measuring less than 60 degrees.
This procedure can only be performed during the stable chronic phase of Peyronie’s disease, typically 18 months after the onset of the condition. It involves shortening the longer side of the penis (as observed during an erection) to match the side where the fibrous plaque is located. With every 15 degrees of curvature, a patient may experience a 1 cm reduction in overall penile length. Consequently, the procedure can lead to a potential shortening of the penis by up to 5 cm.
Apart from accepting the loss in penile length, some patients express discomfort due to sutures and knots present in the penis following the surgery.
(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.
Peyronie's Disease Treatment on the Horizon
Stem cell therapy presents a promising avenue for therapeutic interventions in a range of medical conditions affecting men. One such condition where stem cell therapy holds potential is Peyronie’s disease. This condition can arise due to various factors that impede blood flow to the penis. Stem cells, with their remarkable regenerative capabilities, offer the ability to repair damaged blood vessels and facilitate tissue regeneration in the penile region. Through targeted injections of stem cells into the affected area, it is believed that blood vessel formation can be enhanced and erectile function improved, providing hope for men grappling with Peyronie’s disease.
Stem Cell Therapy
Stem cell therapy holds potential as a treatment option for male infertility, which adversely affects a significant number of couples. Encouraging results from animal studies suggest that if successfully translated to human applications, this approach could provide new possibilities for couples facing male infertility challenges.
Moreover, stem cell therapy shows promise in addressing certain urological conditions, including urinary incontinence and benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). Urinary incontinence, particularly after prostate surgery, can greatly impact men’s lives. Stem cells possess the remarkable ability to differentiate into various cell types involved in the structure and function of the urinary system.
By injecting stem cells into the affected area, it is anticipated that damaged tissues can be regenerated, leading to improved bladder control. Similarly, in the case of BPH, stem cell therapy may help reduce prostate enlargement and alleviate associated symptoms, potentially offering a less invasive treatment alternative.
While the potential of stem cell therapy in addressing various conditions affecting men is highly promising, it is crucial to acknowledge that much of the research is still in its early stages. Further clinical trials and studies are necessary to establish the safety and efficacy of these treatments. Nevertheless, the regenerative capabilities of stem cells offer exciting avenues for addressing men’s health concerns, with the potential to enhance the quality of life for many individuals.
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 : ).
Peyronie's Disease FAQ's
Peyronie’s disease is a condition characterised by the development of fibrous scar tissue within the penis, leading to penile curvature, pain, and difficulties with sexual function.
Peyronie’s disease can cause a gradual deterioration in penile curvature and shortening. Eventually, the condition tends to stabilise within three to 12 months. While pain during erections generally improves within a couple of years, the presence of scar tissue, penile shortening, and curvature often persists.
Peyronie’s disease can be managed through various treatment options, including medication, injections, traction therapy, surgery, and non-surgical interventions.
In the United Kingdom, there are multiple non-surgical treatment options for Peyronie’s disease, such as medication, physiotherapy, injections, and shockwave therapy. These treatments offer potential benefits in managing symptoms and improving penile curvature without the necessity of surgical intervention. Shockwave therapy is a relatively new treatment but the results from it are very encouraging.
Medications such as NSAIDs (ibuprofen or naproxen) can be used for pain relief. Additionally, pentoxifylline, a combination of vitamin E and colchicine, or carnitine may be prescribed to reduce scarring and fibrous plaque formation, as well as topical creams containing verapamil or collagenase.
Injections such as collagenase clostridium histolyticum (CCH), interferon, and verapamil are used to reduce scarring and to break down the plaque and scar tissue and fibrous plaque in the penis. These injections are administered directly into the scar tissue.
While injections are generally considered safe, it’s important to discuss potential risks and benefits with a healthcare professional. They can evaluate your specific case and provide guidance based on your individual needs.
Yes, vacuum pump therapy, also known as a penile pump, can be used to mechanically straighten the penis in Peyronie’s disease. It involves using a vacuum device to create negative pressure and draw blood into the penis, potentially reducing curvature.
According to a study, after 12 weeks of using a vacuum pump, there was a significant improvement in penile length, angle of curvature, and pain. About 51% of the patients reported satisfaction with the outcome, and some experienced a reduction in the angle of curvature.
Yes, vacuum therapy is considered safe to use in all stages of Peyronie’s disease. It can be an alternative or adjunctive treatment option before considering surgery.
While surgery has been shown to be an effective treatment for Peyronie’s disease, it is usually only recommended for patients with severe penile deformity, significant erectile dysfunction and who fail to respond to non-surgical therapy and have curvature for longer than 12 months.
Surgical options include penile plication, plaque incision or excision with grafting, and penile prosthesis implantation.
Penile plication surgery involves suturing the unaffected side of the penis to reduce curvature, resulting in a straighter erection.
Plaque incision or excision with grafting involves removing the scar tissue (plaque) and replacing it with a graft to correct penile curvature.
Penile prosthesis implantation is a surgical procedure where an inflatable or semi-rigid device is inserted into the penis to provide rigidity and allow for satisfactory sexual intercourse.
Yes, non-surgical interventions include the use of vacuum erection devices (VEDs), which create negative pressure to draw blood into the penis and help maintain an erection and Shockwave therapy.
The effectiveness of treatments can vary depending on the severity of the condition, individual factors, and the chosen treatment method. It’s best to consult with a healthcare professional to determine the most suitable option.
Side effects can occur with certain treatments. For example, medications may cause gastrointestinal disturbances, while injections may lead to pain, swelling, or penile bruising. Surgical procedures carry risks such as infection, bleeding, or changes in sensation.
There are no guaranteed prevention methods for Peyronie’s disease. However, avoiding penile trauma and practicing safe sex may help reduce the risk.
Peyronie’s disease itself does not typically affect fertility. However, if it leads to severe erectile dysfunction, fertility issues may arise indirectly.
Peyronie’s disease has been linked to certain conditions such as Dupuytren’s contracture, diabetes, high blood pressure, and connective tissue disorders. However, the exact relationship is not fully understood.
Peyronie’s disease can have a significant impact on mental health, causing stress, anxiety, depression, and difficulties with self-esteem and sexual intimacy. Seeking support from healthcare professionals or support groups may be beneficial.
Early intervention for Peyronie’s disease may offer better treatment outcomes. If you suspect you have Peyronie’s disease, it’s advisable to consult with a healthcare professional as soon as possible.
Peyronie’s disease can cause pain or discomfort during sexual intercourse, particularly if the penile curvature interferes with penetration or causes strain on the penis.
