What Is Peyronie's Disease?
Peyronie's disease is a condition where fibrous scar tissue, or plaque, forms on the penis, resulting in painful erections. Characterized by a penis that is curved or bent when erect, Peyronie's disease can get worse if left untreated. This can lead to concerning symptoms, like erectile dysfunction (ED) and penile shortening. Peyronie's disease can cause severe pain, stress, anxiety, decreased sexual satisfaction, and scar tissue. At Metro Atlanta Urology and Pelvic Health Center, Dr. Shenelle Wilson can diagnose and treat Peyronie's disease to help improve or eliminate problems associated with it.

Peyronie's Disease Causes and Treatments
Although the cause of Peyronie's disease isn't completely known, there are numerous factors that can contribute. Most commonly, Peyronie's disease is thought to happen as a result of repetitive trauma or injury to the penis. The plaque, or scar tissue, that forms during the healing process may prevent the penis from stretching as it becomes erect, leading to pain and a curved appearance. Other factors, like genetics, connective tissue disorders, and aging, can also play a role. After diagnosis with a physical exam, we can discuss your treatment plan for Peyronie's disease. Dr. Wilson is certified in providing top-of-the-line XIAFLEX® as a nonsurgical injectable treatment option approved by the FDA to help reduce the curvature of your erect penis.
Metro Atlanta Urology and Pelvic Health Center Reviews
I met Dr. Wilson thru a referral before a prolapsed uterus that was causing me to have difficulty passing my urine. She treated me like I was family. She told me what my options were and made sure that I understood. Covid lockdowns pulled the plug on my plans and Dr. Wilson moved her practice north out of Atlanta. It took me several months to find her after Covid restrictions were lifted. She was the doctor that I trusted my body and my life with. She is warm, caring. professional individual, who just happens to be the best doctor for the job. I highly recommend her for anyone who needs help with GYN and Urology issues. She is wonderful!
