Aside from the difficulty experienced during sexual intercourse due to the inability to achieve or keep erection, people with Peyronie disease (also known as Peyronie’s disease) experience anxiety, stress and reduced self-esteem. There are many existing Peyronie disease treatment modes available today. Although there are doubts and ongoing debates about their effects because of the inconclusive results of researches, the treatments outlined below have been helping people with Peyronie disease to lead a normal life for years.
  • Medication and supplements. Medical treatments taken orally or through injections are only recommended at the early stages of the disease. The goal of the treatment is to either reduce the inflammation during the initial stages of the disease or to break down the excess collagen in the penis. 
  • Physical therapy. There are existing peyronie's devices and self-administered manual techniques which could prove useful in dealing with the plaques. One of the most effective of the procedures is extracorporeal shockwave therapy that uses ultrasound to reduce curving of the penis. Other treatments such as low-dose radiotherapy are also effective treatments against long-term and painful form of the disease. The risks inherent to prolonged exposure to radiation, though, should be considered when using this form of therapy.
  • Surgery. Two forms of surgical peyronie disease treatments are common: Nesbit operation and penile prosthesis. Nesbit operation is necessary for the correction of shape of the penis. In the more advanced case, a penile prosthesis may be appropriate. Both operations are considered last resorts and requires a highly skilled urological surgeons for it to be performed. 

All treatments detailed above have been used on patients for years. Determining the correct and the most appropriate treatment, especially that of surgery, requires the opinion of a specialist.
