Peyronie's Disease

Peyronie's Disease is a connective tissue disorder whereby fibrous plaques are deposited in the penis.  There is no cure for Peyronie's disease.  However, surgical treatment is very effective at correcting this problem and is often recommended by Dr. Karen Elizabeth Boyle.

Why should I consider Peyronie's Disease corrective surgery?

As these plaques form, pain with erection can result.  The plaques cause the side of the penis affected to shorten when erect.  It is this shortening from the plaques, which result in the curvature.  After adequate penile blood flow at the time of erection is confirmed, surgical repair is considered when the curvature impacts the ability to have desirable intercourse.   

When erectile dysfunction coexists with Peyronie's disease, placement of an inflatable three piece penile prosthesis is recommended.

What is the cost associated with this procedure?

Financial concerns are always important when considering any medical procedure.  Please read our financial information section for more information.

Post-operative instructions

After surgery, instructions will vary from patient to patient.  For a sense of what you can expect after your surgery, see our post-operative instructions.

How long will it take to recover?

Every patient is different, but most men find they can return to work in a matter of weeks.  It takes four to six weeks to fully recover.

When I can I resume intercourse?

Six weeks after the procedure is the average for most men for resuming sexual intercourse.
