What is Peyronie’s disease, and what causes it?
PD is caused by trauma to the penis. This may occur due to sports accidents or rough sexual intercourse. This can occur if there is bending of the penis during sexual intercourse, or if the partner’s pubic bone has impacted the penis. The injury often causes scar tissue to form and affect the connective tissues of the penis often causing penile curvature and weakness of erections with or without discomfort.
Can Peyronie’s disease be cured?
“Cured” is a strong word to use in the medical field. While many conditions cannot be cured, per se, as they are chronic and long-lasting, many patients can find solutions that keep the situation from impacting their lives. Peyronie’s disease may be treated in many ways. Treatment may include:
- Oral medications, such as vitamin E and ibuprofen
- Penile injections, including verapamil, interferon, and collagenase injections
- Low intensity shock wave therapy (GAINSWave) with or without Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and Stem Cell therapy
- Surgical intervention, which is a last-resort solution if more conservative options fail to work
The best treatment for each patient will be determined based on a detailed evaluation including penile exam by Dr. Jeffrey Buch. He often recommends conservative treatments first before considering more invasive solutions such as surgery. During an initial assessment and consultation appointment, he will discuss the diagnosis of the condition and the best course of treatment for you.
