It does not appear to be any advantage to use of the laser knife or any other laser treatment for Peyronie’s disease. Studies have been done in the past which actually showed that the results following laser surgery on the plaque resulted in a much higher rate of postoperative erectile dysfunction. Use of the laser also adds unnecessary expense, and is no less invasive than a standard surgery.
