Peyronie’s disease is a benign condition, but just because it doesn’t shorten your life or spread to other parts of the body doesn’t mean it’s not a big deal. This condition causes a curvature of the penis, and over time, it can prevent the penis from expanding correctly during an erection. If you suffer from the curving and shortening of the penis that comes with this condition, you should know that there is an effective penile lengthening treatment available at Orchidia Medical Group in Naples, FL.

The Symptoms of Peyronie’s Disease
Most men will first notice the onset of this condition as an unusual curving or indentation in their penis. Occasionally, the disease can cause a lump to appear in the shaft. Since this is such a personal issue, it’s not uncommon for a man to feel alone and embarrassed about seeking help. Yet the longer the condition goes untreated, the worse the symptoms tend to become.
Over time, the disease typically makes intercourse more difficult and less satisfying, and it can even cause pain and erectile dysfunction. This can interfere with relationships and have far-reaching emotional consequences.
Misconceptions About the Disease
Although we’ve known about this disease for centuries, not everyone gets the treatment they need. While embarrassment can be part of the problem, there are also misconceptions about the condition. These can include the belief that it’s only a condition that affects older men or that it will resolve on its own. Unfortunately, neither of these statements is true. Peyronie’s disease can affect men of any age, and without treatment, the condition will usually only get worse.
There’s one more misconception to address: the mistaken belief that there’s nothing that can be done about your condition. At Orchidia Medical Group, we can offer effective Peyronie’s disease/penile lengthening treatment in the form of the RestoreX® penile traction therapy device.
The RestoreX® therapy device was developed by doctors in consultation with the Mayo Clinic and can effectively correct lost length in the penis. Individual results vary, but the treatment offers many benefits to qualifying patients.
Other treatments require elaborate attachments and may require the user to wear them for five or more hours a day to see results. With RestoreX®, patients should see positive changes in Peyronie’s disease/penile lengthening with just two treatments a day of 30 minutes each.
Some penile traction devices are untested, but we use RestoreX® because it’s the only such device to be proven effective in a controlled, randomized clinical trial held in the United States.
Unlike other devices, which take a shotgun approach and treat every area of the penis the same way, the RestoreX® device uses opposite angular force that works especially at the location of the disease. This means it works more quickly and efficiently than any other option.
If you’re suffering from any of the symptoms of Peyronie’s disease, or if urological surgery has caused you to lose length in your penis, talk to the professionals at Orchidia Medical Group in Naples, FL. We take your sexual health seriously and offer RestoreX® and other treatments to restore your intimate wellness and your confidence. Contact us today to schedule a consultation!
