Peyronie’s disease was first medically documented in 1793 by French surgeon, François de la Peyronie. The condition is usually characterised by penis curvature or a bend in the penile shaft of 30 degrees or more. Scar tissue can slowly form a fibrous plaque in the penile shaft which can cause symptoms such as; curved penis, indents, lumps and other disfigurements.
Having Peyronie’s disease can be a difficult medical condition to live with. The causes of the disease can include being born with it or having it gradually form after an injury. In some cases a slight penis curvature can continue to get worse over time. Men with severe penis curvature not only have to live with the visual aspect of a bent penis, it can also cause pain, sexual issues and can even make it difficult for normal bodily functions like urinating.
Generally, surgical procedures for Peyronie’s disease should be the last option given to patients. However, there has been much feedback to suggest Peyronie’s surgery was the main or only recommendation from Urologists or General Practitioners. We’ve had many inquiries from men who had corrective penis surgery and some of their feedback has included experiencing penile shortening by up to three inches. Some have also reported noticing the penile curvature began gradually returning with time. In recent years, many Urologists and Doctor’s in Australia have caught up with the fact that penile traction therapy is a viable, non invasive alternative to surgery to treat Peyronie’s disease. In our view, Doctors and Urologists who advise their patients with penile curvature to try a non invasive option such as penile traction, may help avoid costly, and sometimes risky procedures such as surgical treatment for Peyronie’s disease.
“Peyronie’s disease is a common condition effecting many men. There are multiple treatment options including watchful waiting, medications, injections, surgery but the penile traction device is certainly one effective treatment option” – Dr Neil Baum, Urologist, MD.
Jes Extender is a class 1 medical grade device that can be used for penile traction therapy (PTT). Numerous studies and clinical testing have demonstrated penile traction and its success in being able to support improvements in penis curvature when using within the medically proven optimal tension range. When using a genuine penile traction device like Jes Extender, it can help men avoid penis surgery which may not always give permanent treatment. As the therapy uses the medical principle of traction, it can also assist men to avoid penile length reduction which can result from some surgical operations. Furthermore should the penile curvature return in the future, it’s possible to use Jes Extender whenever the need arises. In our experience, there has not been any need to continue use once the desired results have been obtained. Feel free to read the Jes Extender resource below in which males of various ages used the medical device to assist with treating penis curvature, some with astonishing results. Further studies can be read here.

Please note: If using Jes Extender for penile traction therapy (PTT) to assist Penile straightening, an enlargement of the penis may also occur. It simply works hand in hand via the method of traction that the Jes Extender traction device uses. Due to some men needing to use PTT for prolonged periods (i.e. some may need to use for longer than 3 to 6 months), our best recommendation is to consider the Jes Extender Gold package to help support optimal results due to the longer term usage it provides as well as the extra components included which make it much more suitable to use while sleeping and for longer periods.
