Peyronie’s disease treatment in Milford
Dr. Steinberg is a recognized expert in treating Peyronie's disease, a condition where scar tissue, called plaque, forms along the length of the corpora cavernosa, the erectile muscular bodies within the penis. This plaque may cause the penis to bend, making sexual intercourse difficult, painful or occasionally impossible. Treatment options for Peyronie’s diseases include:
TRANSDERMAL VERAPAMIL GEL
Dr. Steinberg may prescribe a specially compounded Transdermal Verapamil Gel as an effective and non-invasive treatment for Peyronie’s Disease. Pain typically resolves within 90 days of starting treatment and there is usually softening and remodeling of the plaque. Patients should expect to apply the medication for 9 to 12 months to complete their treatment course.
Dr. Steinberg has the most experience in Central Massachusetts performing Xiaflex injections for Peyronie’s Disease. Xiaflex is the only FDA-approved medication which is precisely injected directly into the plaque to reduce bending of the penis and improve sexual function. Xiaflex requires a series of three 15-minute office visits within 2 weeks and may be repeated for up to four cycles. Patients are instructed to perform home exercises and typically experience straightening of the penis and improved erection quality after the first couple cycles of Xiaflex.
