Do you have Peyronie’s Disease?

We have recently seen some exciting responses using an innovative treatment for Peyronie’s Disease. This condition often causes pain and angulation in the erect penis. It may also inhibit full erections. Some of our patients found out they had this condition while being seen for having difficulty during sexual activity. Specially trained and certified urologists are now using the medication Xiaflex (TM), a form of botox to soften the angle and reduce the nodular plaque that often occurs in this condition.
While not everyone is a candidate, some men can benefit from this treatment. Typically 6 applications are required, although some of our patients have reported improvement after as few as 2! An evaluation is required to determine if this treatment is likely to help an individual. If you’re having difficulties with penile pain and/or erectile dysfunction, and would like to be evaluated for this exciting therapy, kindly call our office for an appointment.
