This is a non-surgical treatment by Moorgate Andrology to correct Peyronie's disease.

If you have only recently been diagnosed with Peyronie’s disease, then you may want to investigate non-invasive treatments to try and reduce the progression of the disease and help reverse its impact on the appearance of your penis and sexual function.

At Moorgate Andrology we take an active approach to early stage Peyronie’s disease, to help men fight the impact of the disease on their sex lives and their mental health.

Peyronie’s disease is caused by plaque formation in a layer of the penile tissues called the Tunica albuginea. In the beginning, patients may notice pain on erection and an element of erectile dysfunction. It may be difficult to obtain a full erection strong enough for sexual intercourse.

The penis starts to curve in an unnatural angle, due to the plaque formation. This curvature is only noticeable when the penis is erect. In the flaccid state the penis looks perfectly normal.

The cause of this disease is thought to be either a single traumatic event where the penis is suddenly bent during sexual activity, or a series of so-called micro-traumas during sexual activity over time.

Some men can pinpoint the sexual event that triggered the inflammatory reaction, other men cannot recall any such event. This may be an indication that the latter have been subject to a series of micro traumas over time.

Non-Surgical Treatment for Peyronie’s Disease

At Moorgate Andrology we use a combination of shockwave therapy and platelet rich plasma therapy to treat acute stage Peyronie’s disease.

Shockwave therapy for Peyronie’s Disease

Shockwave therapy is used in several different medical specialities, including urology.

Shockwave uses high frequency Extracorporeal shockwaves. Extracorporeal shockwaves are high pressure, low frequency soundwaves that can repair damaged tissue. It can also be of great help in treating erectile dysfunction, a feature in many patients who have Peyronie’s disease. Erections tend to be much firmer and last longer. In Peyronie’s disease many patients report that their erections are weaker than before the disease. This is because shockwave therapy stimulates the growth of new blood vessels. It also has the capacity to help breakdown plaque formation.

The treatment itself takes around 20 minutes. In most cases around three treatments are required, spaced two to three weeks apart. The Urologist will work out a specific treatment plan for you, based on the presentation of your case.

Shockwave treatment can also be combined with platelet rich plasma therapy to provide a viable treatment of early-stage disease.

Platelet-rich plasma therapy for Peyronie’s disease

A blood sample is taken from your arm. This blood sample is then placed into a centrifuge which separates the platelets. Blood platelets, sometime called Thrombocytes have amazing healing properties within the human body. In the treatment of Peyronie’s disease, platelet rich plasma is used to inject a concentration of platelets directly into the damaged tissue of the tunica albuginea of the penis.

This treatment is done on an outpatient basis, just like the injections of hyaluronic acid. This means that you can go home directly after the treatment.

Studies have shown that Platelet rich plasma treatment in Peyronie’s disease can achieve the following improvements:

  • Decrease in penis angulation
  • Improvement in erections
  • Improved sexual function

Platelet rich plasma is an attractive option for me now want a natural healing approach to Peyronie’s disease.
