What is Peyronie’s disease?

When scar tissue develops in the erectile bodies of the penis due to trauma or minor injury, Peyronie’s disease may occur. Sometimes this occurs without trauma or injury. As the scar tissue forms the penis may become bent or indented during an erection, which can cause increased pain and difficulty having sex.

What is Xiaflex and how does it work?

Xiaflex is a prescription medication used to treat Peyronie’s disease. It is made of an enzyme that breaks down the fibrous scar tissue responsible for the bend or curve in the penis. By breaking down this tissue, Xiaflex can help straighten the penis.

Xiaflex is a non-surgical option for treating Peyronie’s disease. It is administered directly into the affected area of the penis in a series of injections. These injections are performed by Dr. Thirumavalavan in the office and typically take less than 10 minutes to complete. The injections are combined with exercises called penile traction that you will perform at home.

What are the benefits of Xiaflex?

Effective treatment: Xiaflex has been proven to be an effective treatment option for Peyronie’s disease. In clinical trials, patients reported significant improvement in the curvature of their penis and reduced pain during erections.

Non-surgical: Unlike surgical options, Xiaflex is a non-invasive treatment that does not require incisions or general anesthesia. This means there is less risk of complications and a quicker recovery time.

Safe and well-tolerated: Xiaflex has been shown to be a safe and well-tolerated treatment option for Peyronie’s disease. The most common side effects are mild pain, swelling, and bruising at the injection site.

Improved quality of life: By straightening the penis and reducing pain during erections, Xiaflex can help improve the overall quality of life for men with Peyronie’s disease.

How do I know if Xiaflex is right for me?
