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.
