Peyronie's disease therapies

Urologist Landon W. Trost, M.D., who specializes in andrology and male infertility at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, discusses treatment options for patients with Peyronie's disease — the development of fibrous scar tissue inside the penis that causes curved, painful erections.

Dr. Trost addresses the importance of defining the therapeutic objectives of the patient and the natural history of the disease. Oral and topical treatments are available, but Dr. Trost notes that they offer no consistent, evidence-based results. Dr. Trost also explains surgical treatment options, including the role of intralesional injections and surgical algorithm, and the side effects of treatment.
