Peyronie’s Disease

Peyronie’s disease causes scar tissue growth inside your penis, which makes erections and even urination painful and frustrating. In many cases, Peyronie’s disease plaques cause penile curvature or other types of deformity.

At Infinity Men’s Health in Mansfield, Massachusetts, skilled board-certified physician David Cunningham, MD, understands the difficulties that those with Peyronie’s disease face, and he’s ready to help. Discover affordable, safe, and highly effective Peyronie’s disease treatments by calling the practice or clicking the online appointment tool now.

Symptoms of Peyronie’s Disease

Plaques often grow on top of the penis, causing it to bend upwards while erect, but it can also grow in other parts of your penis causing it to bend downwards or towards the right or left side. Occasionally, plaques can even constrict your penile tissue, creating a bottleneck looking appearance.

Sometimes the penis can shorten due to plaque growth vertically. Peyronie’s disease has been found to cause erectile dysfunction and often causes painful erections.

How is Peyronie’s disease treated?

There have been several treatments developed for Peyronie’s disease today. Oral medications are rarely effective and are thus rarely prescribed by most. Another option is Xiaflex®, a penile injection, but it can be very traumatic and expensive.

Dr. Cunningham uses a cost-effective, comfortable, and safe treatment for Peyronie’s disease at Infinity Men’s Health. Generally, focused shockwave treatment is very effective for Peyronie’s disease. This treatment delivers focused and controlled energy beams that aim to dissipate plaques within your penis and improve circulation to help with any erectile difficulties.

Many patients also benefit from platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, injections. The plasma in your body has incredibly powerful regenerative properties. PRP boosts recovery for your inner penile tissue after the plaques dissipate. PRP also attracts stem cells, which can become new healthy penile tissue. 

For most men, the combination of focused shockwave therapy and PRP injections eliminates or reduces plaques and their side effects. This approach can likewise help with erectile dysfunction, allowing you a healthy sex life.
