Peyronie’s Disease and Penis Curvature


Peyronie’s Information, Causes and Treatments


What is Peyronie’s Disease?


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.

Surgical Treatment for Peyronie’s Disease


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.

Video Summary:

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.



Penis Curvature and Penile Traction


Various medical grade devices may 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, it can help men avoid penis surgery which may not always give permanent treatment. As the therapy uses the medical principle of traction, it may also assist men to avoid penile length reduction which can result during the healing period of some surgical procedures. Furthermore should the penile curvature return in the future, it’s possible to use penile traction whenever the need may arise.

Main highlights of the above data:

  • On average there was a 42% penis curvature correction within 6 months use
  • In most cases the plaque that caused the curvature was reduced, in some cases completely reversed
  • Even though patients did not have to use as regularly for penis enlargement purposes, they still experienced growth
  • Most men reported an increase in erection quality and some a reversal of erectile dysfunction


Please note: If using 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 a traction device uses.
