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.

How does Peyronie's Disease effect men?

All men are different and 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 Peyronie's Disease 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 may be scheduled for life-changing 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.




MansMatters are here to help

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.

How We Treat Peyronie's Disease

We use a variety of technologies including extracorporeal focused shockwave (Pioneered in breaking kidney stones but adapted for this sensitive area of the body) combined with Magnetotransduction and Nanovi Exo therapy. We combine this with sophisticated devices to reshape the penis and supplement with oral and topical medication and a mechanical device.

The specialists at our Surrey and London clinics undertake this treatment to the affected area. This results in straightening the curvature without pain or invasive surgery or any reduction in penile sensitivity or length.

How Does the Technology Work?

Focused Shockwave for Peyronie's Disease is a sophisticated medical treatment. It works by directing specially focused shockwaves (Similar to the ones used to break kidney stones, but not painful) on the plaque to weaken, break, and reduce it. 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.

Accurate, Non-Invasive, and Effective Treatment

We use the latest techniques to accurately locate the plaque, reveal how big it is and determine 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.

Whilst the majority of patients experience immediate 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.

Shockwave Therapy for Peyronie's Disease – References

Read how the improvement to painful erections is significant, which is the most common complaint of Peyronie's Disease patients, but how 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.

  About a year ago I contacted MansMatters – best decision I ever made...

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.

  Please chaps don’t leave it like I did – make the call...

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.

  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.

Peyronie's Disease FAQs

What is Peyronie’s Disease or PD?

Peyronie’s Disease is a sexual disorder in men which causes severe penile curvature or other forms of deformity. This sexual issue can also cause severe pain in the penis, which makes it difficult for men to have satisfactory sex. PD occurs due to the formation of fibrous plaques in the inner lining of the penis.

How Does PD Affect a Man's Sex Life?

PD can have a hugely negative impact on a man’s sex life. If the penile curvature is severe and there is pain associated with it, then it can make having sex extremely difficult and painful and, in some cases, impossible. This issue can greatly impact the psychological health of those afflicted as well.

How Does PD Affect Couples?

PD not only affects men, but also negatively impacts their romantic relationship. If there is a lack of satisfactory sex in a relationship, then it can take a mental toll on both the man and his partner. Frustrations can creep in, leading to stress and depression. If the issue is not treated, then it can even lead to relationship breakups.

Is Peyronie’s Disease a Common Problem?

While Peyronie’s disease is not as common as ED, according to clinical research data it is thought that about 10% of men in the UK suffer from PD.

Can Peyronie's Disease Just Go Away?

Some mild cases of Peyronie’s Disease have been reported as going away without treatment, but it’s rare for penile curvature or plaques to go away on their own without treatment. It’s best to speak to an expert to get advice on the severity of PD and what treatment would be best for you.

What is the Most Common Cause of Peyronie’s Disease?

The most common cause of Peyronie’s Disease is penile injury or trauma. Injury to the penis can occur due to accidents, vigorous sex, sports related activities, etc. Repeated attempts at sexual intercourse with weak or incomplete erections can also hasten the development of PD, so if you have weak erections, you should seek help for erectile dysfunction.

Is Penile Injury the Only Cause of PD?

No. Although penile injury is the most common cause of PD, there are other known causes as well.

  • PD can be a genetic issue - If a family member has Peyronie’s Disease, then other men from that family have an increased risk of suffering from PD.
  • Men with Dupuytren’s contracture or Ledderhose disease have a far greater propensity to develop Peyronie’s Disease.

Does Peyronie’s Disease Make the Penis Smaller?

Peyronie’s Disease can shorten your penis. Shockwave therapy for Peyronie’s Disease helps blood vessels to improve and help in restoring length.

Can Smoking Increase the Risk of Developing PD?

Although smoking doesn’t directly cause Peyronie’s disease, various research studies have shown that smoking can increase the risk.

Is There Any Relationship Between Peyronie’s Disease and Testosterone Hormone Level?

Studies have shown that Peyronie’s Disease and testosterone hormone are not directly linked. However, men with PD are more likely to have a lower level of testosterone hormone level.

Is High Blood Pressure Associated with PD?

Yes. High blood pressure is associated with PD, as it can increase the risk of the development of it in men. High cholesterol can also be a risk factor.

Is There Any Link Between PD and Diabetes?

Yes. Studies have shown that there is a strong link between diabetes and PD. Men with diabetes tend to have far greater risk of developing PD than men without diabetes.

Are There Any Other Risk Factors for PD?

Other risk factors for PD include, ageing, Paget’s disease of the bone, Lupus, Sjögren’s Syndrome, prostate cancer surgery, etc.

Is There Any Connection Between Peyronie’s Disease and Dupuytren’s Disease?

It has been known that men who have Dupuytren’s disease tend to have an increased risk of suffering from PD as far back as 1828.

Does PD Play Any Role in the Development of Depression?

PD can cause severe stress, anxiety and even depression in men. These psychological issues can in turn negatively affect the general and sexual health of the patients.

Can a Man Suffer from ED Due to PD?

Yes. Men with PD can suffer from increased difficulty to obtain and maintain strong erections.

What is the Relationship Between PD and ED?

Fibrous plaques which cause the penis to bend, can also impair penile blood flow, which is necessary in order to obtain and maintain strong erections. Stress, anxiety and depression caused by PD can also play a big role in the development of ED in PD patients.

What are the stages of PD?

There are primarily two stages of PD. Stage-1 is known as the acute phase and stage-2 is known as the chronic phase. In the acute phase, fibrous plaque starts to form, and patients tend to experience some pain in the penis. In the chronic phase, penile plaques get fully formed and pain in the penis tends to disappear.

Can Peyronie’s Disease be Avoided?

Peyronie’s disease cannot be avoided with 100% certainty. However, the risk of suffering from this disease can be lessened by leading a healthy lifestyle and avoiding penile injuries, such as rigorous sex or playing a sport such as rugby.

Can Peyronie’s Disease be Treated?

Yes. With effective treatments, it’s possible to minimise the penile curvature and improve the condition of PD.

Can Non-invasive Treatments be Effective in the Treatment of PD?

Yes. Non-invasive treatments are usually considered as go to treatments for most patients. Our modern non-invasive treatment procedures are very much capable of minimising penile curvature and treating PD.

What Type of Treatments Do You Provide to Treat Peyronie’s Disease?

We provide non-invasive treatments for Peyronie’s Disease. Our revolutionary treatment protocol for PD consists of focused shockwave therapy, EMTT, and NanoVi.

How Effective is Shockwave Therapy in Treating PD?

Not all shockwave treatments are equal, and some are not suitable for treating PD, but our focused shockwave therapy is very effective in minimising penile curvature and improving the blood flow in the penis. We have successfully treated hundreds of men suffering from PD using focused shockwave therapy and our unique combination of associated therapies.

How Does Shockwave Therapy Treat PD?

Shockwave therapy uses special shockwaves to break down the fibrous plaques in the penis, which enable the penile curvature to reduce. The plaques displaced during the treatment get absorbed within the body. Shockwave therapy also generates new blood vessels, which Improve the blood flow in the penile tissues.

Is Shockwave Therapy Compatible with Other PD Therapies?

Yes. Shockwave therapy is fully compatible with our other PD treatments, including EMTT and NanoVi.

Are Non-invasive PD Treatment Therapies Safe?

Yes. Our treatment procedures are completely safe. None of our treatments have any sort of negative side-effects.
