Peyronie’s Disease

Peyronie’s disease was first described in the 13th century.

The hallmark of the disease is a scar development, or plaque, in the outer portion of the penis under the skin leading to curvature (bending). The disease is thought to occur from abnormal healing of the penis.

Peyronie’s disease can present with mild to severe curvature and pain. In severe cases the curvature of the penis may lead to inability or difficulty with penetration during intercourse and erectile dysfunction.

Dr. Avila’s Goals of Treatment for Peyronie’s Disease

Dr. Avila’s goals of treatment include decreasing any associated pain since this will preclude any other treatment response. Another goal is to provide improvement or stabilization of the curvature to help men regain their sexual function. Finally Dr. Avila strives to prevent the progression or worsening of the curvature.

Treatment of Peyronie’s Disease

Treatments for Peyronie’s disease differ depending on the severity of the curvature and the presence of erectile dysfunction. Dr. Avila will discuss all treatment options with you along with the risks and benefits of each therapy.
