What Are the Treatment Options for Peyronies Disease?
There are various treatment options that have been developed for Peyronie’s disease – these fall under four broad categories for more information, please refer to the dedicated webpages of each treatment option:
Conservative treatment options such as oral medication, topical treatments and supplements – unfortunately to date none of these have proved to have a significant effect on reducing penile curvature or plaque size but some can help with pain management and potentially slowing the disease progress
Mechanical modelling involves using a vacuum erection device and penile stretching and straightening exercises with the aim of reducing the curvature. Mechanical modelling on its own is unlikely to be beneficial but it is essential that it is performed after Xiapex injections or surgical correction of the penile curvature.
Xiapex Injection therapy is the latest treatment option available for Peyronie’s and the first non-surgical therapy that has proved effective in treating Peyronie’s plaque. We recommend Xiapex as a first line of treatment (subject to our doctors diagnosis)
Surgical correction before the introduction of Xiapex, surgery was the only effective treatment for penile curvature caused by Peyronie’s and still remains the most successful for most patients. Surgery should only be performed after the disease progress has stopped which usually occurs 12 months from onset (chronic phase).
Our Peyronie’s treatment process, in most cases, is a combination of these treatment options depending on a patient’s individual profile, the stage and the severity of the disease.
Although Peyronie’s is a dilapidating disease for patients, it is important to remember it is treatable in the majority of cases and you will able to regain a healthy and functional sexual life.
