Peyronie’s Disease Treatment

Peyronie’s (pay-roe-NEE) disease is a condition in which fibrous scar tissue forms in the deeper tissues under the skin of the penis. This causes curved, painful erections.  This can prevent you from having sex. Or it might make it hard to get or keep an erection, which also is called erectile dysfunction.  For those with Peyronie’s Disease, treatment can help break down plaque, fibrosis or scar of the penile tissues and thus reduce curvature. At AUI we take a multidimensional approach to treatment of peyronies giving our patients the best possible outcomes.

Peyronie’s Treatment

  1. Testosterone optimization –  by optimizing testosterone levels to improve mens overall health. Not all men need TRT, sometimes increasing exercise, eating a healthy diet and getting enough sleep is enough to optimizing testosterone, if these strategies are not enough we offer multiple TRT programs.
  2. PD5 inhibitors – Tadalafil, Sildenafil, Vardenafil and Avanafil – helps to stimulate the formation of cGMP, leading to vasodilation and increasing penile blood flow.
  3. Pulsewave – Pulsewave is non-invasive, painless and requires no anesthesia or other medications to perform. Low-Intensity PulseWave technology has been well studied and is listed as one of the first-line therapies for erectile dysfunction since 2013 by the European Association of Urology and is supported by many randomized studies to be safe and  effective Pulsewave is able to induce the process in which the body repairs damaged blood vessels, stimulate the growth of new blood vessels, and help break down plaque in penile blood vessels allowing for better blood flow resulting in better erections.
