Europe’s Leading Mens Health Shockwave Clinic
Reverse Peyronie’s Disease
Mansmatters is recognised as the UK’s leading clinic for non-invasive treatments for Peyronie’s Disease (PD) and has been at the forefront of technological advancements.
Peyronie’s disease is one of the most devastating things that can happen to any man: It can develop suddenly or over a period of time for no apparent reason. The majority of men experience horror and mortification as a once straight penis, becomes bent and deformed upon erection. All men are different and the Peyronie’s disease can result in a banana, boomerang, hourglass, hammerhead, corkscrew, or indented shape, often with a swing to one side, a significant reduction in size and a weakness upon erection. This also comes with a number of further side effects including pain, a lump in the penis (fibrous plaque), narrowing of the girth and restricted blood supply. The cause is a benign (non-cancerous) plaque that forms in the inner lining (tunica albuginea) of the penis.
Skip the Long Wait for Treatment & Avoid the Surgeon’s Knife
Although Peyronie’s disease has been treated for over 250-years, it is not considered a critical condition and many men, since the pandemic, will feel that they have been at the back of the queue for treatment and advice. Those that do get specialist advice are often told to take vitamin E and use a Penis pump and wait for 18-months to two years, when they maybe scheduled for lifechanging surgery. During this time, depression sets in, relationships fracture and a man’s sense of self-worth severely diminishes. Some men may be able to have sex, whilst with others the Peyronie’s disease will be too severe or too painful for their partners.
Whilst the medical approach of wait and see for 18-months and then undergo the surgeon’s knife is the traditional medical route of treatment, our clinical experience is that it is better to treat a smaller problem earlier, rather than a larger one later. Also, the vast majority of our clients do not wish to undergo surgery. At Mansmatters we are the leading non-invasive erectile dysfunction and Peyronie’s disease clinic in the UK. We are the pioneers in treating the condition before it gets worst with the most advanced non-invasive medical treatments.
How We Treat Peyronie’s Disease
We use a variety of technologies including extracorporeal focussed shockwave that was pioneered in breaking kidney stones and adapted for this sensitive area of the body, combined with Magneto transduction therapy. We combine this with sophisticated devices to reshape the penis and supplement with oral and topical medication
Our specialists, at our Surrey and London clinics, undertake this treatment to the affected area. This results in straightening the curvature without pain or painful surgery or any reduction in penile sensitivity or length. As a result, we have enabled numerous patients to rediscover a healthy and pain-free sex life.
Our programme is a non-invasive treatment and can provide improvements in overcoming Peyronie’s disease in men at the earlier and later stages of it allowing them to them to enjoy renewed sexual spontaneity, intimacy, and a better sex life without embarrassment.
How Does the Technology Work?
Shockwave for Peyronie’s disease is a sophisticated medical treatment. It works by directing special focussed shockwaves (similar to the ones used to break kidney stones, but not painful) on the plaque to weaken, break, and reduce the plaque. The broken fibrosis is then remodelled, re-absorbed, and recycled by the body. During this process a welcome side effect occurs which is Angiogenesis (the formation of new blood vessels) which in turn helps you to achieve harder erections.
We use the latest diagnostic ultrasound to accurately locate the plaque, this reveals how big it is and determines the best course of treatment. A hand-held device is placed on the shaft of the penis and a series of low-level shock waves are administered. These are delivered as impulses and are not painful. Treatment takes about 30 minutes, after which, the patient will be able to carry on life as normal. Treatments are carried out either by a practising doctor or medically trained shockwave specialist.
Shockwave treatment causes no side-effects, is non-invasive and requires just short visits to our clinic for the time period specified by the specialist. For patients who have suffered from Peyronie’s disease for some time, obvious improvements are often noticeable within two weeks after the therapy has started.

Read how the improvement to painful erections is significant, which is the most common complaint of Peyronie’s disease patients; that there is a significant improvement in the curvature as well. The reduction in the plaque size improved subjective assessment of the plaque and curvature all correlates with the improved sexual life of these patients. No adverse effects have been recorded in the study post-ESWT, thereby implying it to be a safe modality. Click on Link to Read Study.

Recorded at the Royal Society of Medicine in August 2021, this interview with our Senior Consultant Mr. Almashan covers the causes and treatment of Peyronie’s Disease.
How Does Shockwave Therapy for Erectile Dysfunction Work?
The treatment uses focussed shockwaves which are applied to the penis using our Swiss engineered shockwave equipment, the STORZ DUOLITH® SD1 which provides ultra-focused shock wave therapy, superior to radial shockwave used by many other practitioners. The shockwaves create new blood vessels in the penis which allow for increased blood flow.
