Peyronie’s disease is a devastating condition which is thought to affect around 5% of men. It is characterised by a bend in the penis. This bend can be up or down, to the left or right. The degree of the bend does vary between individuals.
Sufferers report depression, loss of confidence and a reluctance to engage in sexual activities as side effects of having Peyronie’s disease.

How do Peyronies disease injections work ?
Peyronie’s disease injections work by disrupting the collagen plaque that causes the curvature. It is injected into the plaque by a qualified Doctor. Following the treatment the Doctor will perform a “penile modelling” procedure which he/she will also teach you how to do this at home.

What are the advantages of Peyronie’s disease injection?
This is a minimally invasive treatment. It does not require Peyronies disease surgery which is a surgical operation performed under general anaesthetic.
For most men, there is a significant improvement in the degree of curvature. A number of sessions may be required to achieve optimal results.
Where the improvement is minimal the surgical option would need to be explored.
