Treatments and Surgery

Peyronie’s disease can be very painful. Fortunately, it’s treatable. There are several types of treatment, but the majority of Peyronie’s disease cases are treated with surgery.

There are several surgical treatments for Peyronie’s disease. Each treatment depends on the severity of the case and the patient’s overall health. There are several non-surgical treatment plans, but those procedures haven’t proven to be as effective as surgery.

Is Surgery for Peyronie’s Disease Right for You?

In most cases, the doctor or specialist will recommend surgery before any other treatment. Unless the patient has a compromised immune system, surgery is usually the best option to treat Peyronie’s disease. Correcting the curvature of the penis and eliminating erection pain is the main priority of all the treatments. If you suspect you’re suffering with Peyronie’s disease or if you’ve recently been diagnosed with Peyronie’s disease, you should seriously consider surgery as your first option for treatment.

At this point, you’ve probably researched your symptoms online and come to a conclusion about your condition. Maybe you’ve entered queries like “where to get Peyronie’s disease treatment near me” or “urologist near me.” If this is you Advanced Urology is here for you. Call Advanced Urology in Atlanta today at 678-344-8900
to learn more about treatment options and make an appointment.

Some other factors to consider regarding any surgery are:

  • Age – The older you are, the more risks there are with surgery.
  • Immune system – If your immune system is easily compromised from a separate condition or disease, you’re at more of a risk for infection from surgery.
  • Aversion to surgery – If your religion or culture is against surgical procedures, other, less effective options are available.

Your Atlanta urologist or specialist will take all those factors into account before recommending surgery after looking over your tests and screening results.

The Types of Surgery for Peyronie's Disease

The surgical treatments for Peyronie’s disease are simple and effective. The goal is to correct the curvature of the penis. Fortunately, the surgeries are safe and minimally invasive. The surgical treatment can be performed in several different ways:

Suturing

Several procedures can be performed by suturing the longer side of the penis. This is the side with the scar tissue and can correct the curvature for the least severe cases.

Incision and Grafting

This surgery corrects Peyronie’s disease through several incisions in the penis and removing the scar tissue. The excess skin is grafted onto the areas with missing tissue with a graft. This procedure is used for the most severe case and run a higher risk for erectile dysfunction.

Penile Implants

For the worst cases, penile implants are surgically placed inside the penis. These devices allow men to have an erection by replacing the spongy tissue inside the penis with a special device. There are two types of implants, semi-rigid and inflatable. Each device has its advantages, but the most common is inflatable.

If you have Peyronie’s disease, surgery is probably your best option for recovery. The procedures are relatively painless thanks to anesthesia and have a proven track record of successfully correcting the curvature of the penis caused by Peyronie’s disease.
