Understanding Peyronie's Disease:

Assessment and Evaluation:

MSH Team Members conduct a comprehensive assessment to understand the extent and impact of Peyronie's disease. They consider both physical and psychological aspects, taking into account medical history, sexual history, current symptoms, and emotional well-being. They may perform physical examinations or order imaging tests to evaluate the curvature and identify underlying conditions.

Treatment Options:

MSH Team Members offer various treatment options for Peyronie's disease based on the individual's needs and the severity of the condition. They may recommend nonsurgical interventions such as medication, collagenase injections, or the use of penis traction devices. In cases where the curvature significantly affects sexual function or causes distress, surgical options may be considered, such as penile plication, grafting, or prosthesis implantation.

Psychological and Emotional Support:

Peyronie's disease can have a significant psychological impact, leading to feelings of embarrassment, self-consciousness, or anxiety. MSH Team Members provide a supportive and understanding environment for patients to discuss their concerns openly. They offer counselling and guidance on managing the emotional aspects of the condition, improving self-esteem, and fostering healthy sexual relationships.
