Peyronie’s Disease


If you are experiencing pain during intercourse, you may be suffering from Peyronie’s (pay-row-nees) disease. It’s a condition in which scar tissue or plaque develops inside the penis, causing the shaft to curve and resulting in painful erections and/or erectile dysfunction (ED).

What is Peyronie's Disease?

What Are the Symptoms of Peyronie’s Disease?

Symptoms of Peyronie’s disease include:

  • Abnormal curvature or indentation of the penis
  • Loss of width or shortened penis
  • Painful erections
  • Difficulty having intercourse
  • Discomfort for your partner during intercourse
  • The inability to achieve or maintain a full erection (ED)

What Causes Peyronie’s Disease?

The exact cause of Peyronie’s disease isn’t clear, but it is generally believed to be the result of repeated injury to the penis during sex, athletic activity, or an accident in which scar tissue forms during the healing process in a disorganized manner. If this is the case, it can lead to the development of a curvature of the penis.

How Is Peyronie’s Disease Treated?

In some cases, Peyronie’s disease has been known to improve or disappear over time. However, more persistent or severe cases require interventional treatment. Unfortunately, traditional medical options include prescription drugs (such as Verapamil, Interferon, and Xiaflex) taken orally or directly injected into the plaque, invasive surgery to lengthen or shorten one side of the penis, venous or fascial grafts, or prosthetic implants. These alternatives can expose you to infection and require a lengthy recovery period.

As an alternative to surgery and habit-forming medications, NIVA Men’s Health offers nonsurgical, low-intensity, focused acoustic shockwave therapy for treatment of Peyronie’s disease. The energy from focused shockwave pulses safely and painlessly improves the blood flow to the penis and breaks up plaque buildup, thereby relieving symptoms and speeding up natural improvement.


I attended an educational workshop with my husband and it was a fantastic experience.I went into this thinking I couldn’t afford the treatment but I learned otherwise at the seminar and the consultation that the cost of losing out on quality of life far exceeds paying for this service.”
