  • Peyronie's disease is a sexually debilitating disease causing significant penile deformity and erectile dysfunction as well as psychological stress for many men. The incidence of Peyronie's disease appears to be increasing and urologists are being called upon more frequently to treat this debilitating condition. Urologists have an opportunity to help men suffering from Peyronie's disease to improve their lives and the lives of their partners. Appropriate treatment should be individualized and tailored to the patient's expectations, disease history, physical exam findings, and coital function. After medical therapy is considered and the Peyronie's disease has stabilized, surgical correction is an excellent option for patients with functional impairment from their Peyronie's disease. Surgical outcomes are excellent with expected return to normal sexual function following Peyronie's disease treatment.
