In this segment, Dr. Mistry and Donna Lee answer a listener's question about
getting a vasectomy when he has Peyronie's disease. He wonders whether the two could affect each other, and whether he should get a consultation for Peyronie's before his vasectomy consultation? Dr. Mistry reminds all our listners that NAU Urology Specialists offers the fabulous Mistry Vasectomy--a single-visit, in-office vasectomy with IV sedation. November is our Annual Pre-Thanksgiving Vasectomathon! Call us to schedule your all-in-one consultation and vasectomy procedure today! Regarding this listener's Peyronie's, Dr. Mistry suggests he be evaluated by a urologist to determine the extent of his disease progression and potential avenues of treatment. If you have developed a bend in your penis or if, when erect, it stands at an unnatural angle, you may have Peyronie's disease. While the exact cause is unknown, Peyronie's disease may be caused by the slowly accumulating effects of microtrauma to the penis sustained during intercourse with a less-than-fully-erect penis. Scar tissue can develop along the penis shaft, causing the often painful and distressing changes associated with this incredibly common condition. More severe, acute trauma to the penis can also cause Peyronie's to develop practically overnight, so please be careful when having vigorous intercourse--the most common cause of serious penile trauma. Peyronie's typically develops rather quickly and may progress for about a year before stabilizing. At that point, there are many treatment options depending on the degree of penile curvature and the severity of symptoms. While people with a lower degree of curvature might benefit from Xiaflex injections, those with more severe curves should consider one of the surgical options offered by NAU Urology Specialists. No matter your disease progression, getting an evaluation and proper measurement of your curvature by a urologist is essential in identifying the right treatment.
