Dr. Kaplan, recognized previously as "Top Doctor" by Las Vegas Magazine and "Consultant of the Year" by the state Family Practice Association, and is an expert in treating men with Peyronie's Disease and other ailments related to a broken penis. This condition is often times painful and embarrassing; however, there typically is a treatment available that will help you get back to normal activity.
Treating A Bent, Crooked, or Broken Penis
Peyronie's disease is a fibrous tissue disorder of the penis characterized by the presence of scar tissue, or plaques, in tissues inside the penis. If Peyronie's disease is present, the erect penis is usually bent and may be painful before or during sexual intercourse. This condition may appear suddenly or gradually and will typically worsen over the first six to eighteen months. The curvature will continue until treated in most instances. Dr. Michael S. Kaplan, a board certified urologist, specializes in the treatment of erectile dysfunction and has diligently worked to educate the male population on this little publicized, but very treatable, disorder. His patients often return to active, pain-free sex lives with treatment. A recent study of 8000 men revealed the prevalence of Peyronie's disease increases with age � 1.5% for men age 30-39, 3% for men age 40-59, 4% for men age 60-69 and 6.5% for men age 70 and older.
Complications of Peyronie's Disease
While many men who suffer from this disorder continue to have sexual relations, others experience anxiety and even depression or withdraw from their sexual partners and often go undiagnosed until the disease progresses. Dr. Michael S. Kaplan has successfully diagnosed and treated many men who often reported their sex lives improved as soon as they were diagnosed and determined an effective course of treatment.

- Pain when penis is erect or during sexual intercourse
