Introduction and Question
« on: February 15, 2018, 04:44:37 PM »

Hello all.
I have been following this forum since August and have gleaned a great deal of information. Thank you to all that post and Administrator(s).
I was diagnosed with Peyronies Disease about 10 months ago. It began after a severe bout of chronic prostatitis which I still have but less severe. The prostatitis came on after the loss of a beloved grandchild.
Treatment so far has been, Pentox, Verapamil Cream, Vit E, Coq10, Vit D, traction and just began 3 cylinder VED.
I have hourglass at base and about 60 degree curve left. The hourglass has made my erection unstable. I have also loss some length.
I have come across a DR. Michael Zahalsky in Coral Springs Fl.
He is doing treatments for both Peyronies Disease and ED with Mesenchymal Stem Cell injections. ( PMD-MSC ).
On PubMed.gov it states he did a 5 patient study with good results.
I made an appt but cannot find any other information on this treatment.
Has anyone heard of this treatment or Doctor?  Any advice?

I haven't heard of this doctor, and a study of 5 is a very small sampling. But hoping for the best.

Not saying that an experimental treatment is the wrong way to go, but I would want to first explore standard treatments, i.e. Xiaflex, verapamil injections, etc.  if those fail then explore experimental treatment.  As LWillisjr noted 5 patients is an extremely small sample group, and results in that small a group can mean anything.  When you meet him see how he discusses treatment, I would be hesitant if he pushes this treatment, just based on the fact that you haven't tried more mainstream treatments first.
