What is Peyronie’s Disease?

Peyronie’s disease is the development of scar tissue (called plaque) along the tunica albuginea, which is the fiber sheath that surrounds the erectile tissue of the male penis.

The scar tissue can cause an erect penis to bend or curve. The development of the scar tissue isn’t necessarily painful, but it can make sex difficult and/or affect a patient’s view of himself. As such, Peyronie’s disease can significantly impact a person’s quality of life.

The good news? Penile curvature is treatable. Treatments include physical therapy maneuvers, medications, and surgical options.

Due to the nature of this condition, we understand this can be a sensitive topic to broach with your physician. Whatever emotions you’re experiencing, often the toughest one is the fear of the unknown: Is this normal? Am I OK? Can something be done? Doctors are trained to not only treat this condition, but also to help you make sense of it. They’ve seen it all, and they want you to know that you’re not alone.

Our board-certified urologists are ready to listen, answer your questions, and work with you on a treatment protocol that makes sense for you and your life. Let us help!
