Dr. Levine answers: I am aware of no studies using acupuncture for the treatment of Peyronie’s disease. It is certainly possible that acupuncture may reduce the pain associated with Peyronie’s disease as it has been found to be a successful treatment for a variety of pain syndromes. With regard to any improvement of penile deformity I can think of no mechanism where this would work, but stranger things have been reported. I for one would not be recommending acupuncture for improvement of penile deformity associated with Peyronie’s disease.

Previous Iontophoresis treatment: Do you know of any other companies besides Physion that are offering this modality? I found numerous companies that make portable devices similar to Physion. Is their protocol machine different or is the iontophoresis basically the same?
Next Is it possible for iontophoresis to soften or even change any calcification that may be present in the plaque?
