Peyronie’s Disease

Peyronie’s Disease is a condition that affects men, causing penile curvature and discomfort during erections. While it can be a source of concern, it’s important to know that effective treatments like Shockwave Therapy and the P-shot are available at Centrepointe Medical in Ottawa. We will explore what Peyronie’s Disease is, its symptoms, causes, and risk factors.

What is Peyronie’s Disease?

Peyronie’s Disease, named after the French physician François Gigot de la Peyronie, is a condition characterized by the development of fibrous scar tissue, or plaques, within the penis. These plaques can lead to penile curvature, pain, and difficulties during erections. While it can be a distressing condition, there are effective treatment options available, as offered by Centrepointe Medical in Ottawa.

Peyronie’s Disease Symptoms:

  • Penile Curvature: The most noticeable symptom of Peyronie’s Disease is a curvature of the penis during an erection. The curvature can be mild to severe and may develop gradually.
  • Pain or Discomfort: Many men with Peyronie’s Disease experience pain or discomfort during an erection, particularly at the site of the plaques.
  • Erectile Dysfunction: In some cases, Peyronie’s Disease can lead to erectile dysfunction, making it challenging to achieve or maintain a firm erection suitable for sexual activity.

Peyronie’s Disease Causes:

The exact cause of Peyronie’s Disease is not fully understood, but it is believed to result from a combination of factors:

  • Trauma or Injury: A past penile injury or repeated microtrauma during sexual activity may contribute to the development of plaques.
  • Genetics: There may be a genetic predisposition to Peyronie’s Disease, as it sometimes runs in families.
  • Inflammation: Inflammation within the penile tissue can trigger scar tissue formation.

    Peyronie’s Disease Risk Factors:

    Several factors can increase the risk of developing Peyronie’s Disease:

    • Age: Peyronie’s Disease is more common in middle-aged and older men, but it can affect men of all ages.
    • Genetic Predisposition: A family history of Peyronie’s Disease may increase the risk.
    • Penile Trauma: Past injuries or repeated trauma to the penis can elevate the risk of developing plaques.

    Centrepointe Medical’s Effective Solutions:

    Centrepointe Medical in Ottawa offers advanced solutions for Peyronie’s Disease, including:

    Shockwave Therapy:

    Shockwave Therapy is a non-invasive treatment that utilizes low-intensity shockwaves to break down the fibrous plaques associated with Peyronie’s Disease. This helps improve penile curvature and reduce pain.

    P-Shot (Priapus Shot):

    The P-Shot utilizes platelet-rich plasma (PRP) derived from the patient’s own blood to promote the healing and regeneration of penile tissue affected by Peyronie’s Disease, leading to improved penile function and reduced curvature.
