I recommend that you examine the topic section within this website on the use of shockwaves, and previous answers to questions on this subject. Basically at this point there is no evidence that the use of shockwaves for Peyronie’s disease is an effective therapy. Several patients have noted improvement, whether this occurs as a result of contralateral scarring that falsely straightens the penis or whether there truly are beneficial effects have not been proven, but in the studies which have been done, very little benefit has been reported in the medical literature.
