New Paradigm for the Treatment of Peyronie’s Disease – Summary:
Culley C. Carson III, MD, Professor Emeritus at the University of North Carolina School of Medicine, reviews the history of treatment options for Peyronie’s Disease. He then compares clinical results of oral therapies, injection techniques, shock wave therapy, and penile prosthesis. Since first being developed, the efficacy of several of these protocols has improved and patients have experienced a reduction in curvature. Patients with Peyronie’s Disease often report significant negative emotional toll as a result of the condition, and new advances in treatment, such as the combination of drug and lengthening device that improves penile angulation can also improve depression and emotional problems.
