At this time there are no ongoing studies using stem cell therapy for treating Peyronie’s disease. Some of the initial work being done for erectile dysfunction is just being presented at our society meetings. It is likely that some day there will be tissue engineering techniques which will emerge and potentially act as a tissue which can replace the diseased tunica which is the tissue affected by PD. At this time there are off-the-shelf grafts as well as tissues from the patient which can be used to correct deformity when incision and grafting is necessary.

Previous Could you give your opinion regarding stem cell research as a solution? Are there any studies being done anywhere in the world with stem cell and Peyronie’s?
Next Given the advances in reconstructive surgery especially in light of the near full face transplant recently performed, what is the progress being made with respect to plaque excision and implantation of regenerated tunica albuginea for correction of Peyronie’s disease?
