Erectile Dysfunction Q & A
What is erectile dysfunction?
Erectile dysfunction (ED) is also commonly called impotence. It is a type of male sexual dysfunction that causes an inability to achieve or maintain an erection. Such a condition can obviously cause frustration and a drop in overall quality of life.
Many men experience ED during times of stress or after consuming too much alcohol. However, recurring ED can be a sign of an underlying problem. Without treatment, erectile dysfunction can start to negatively impact your life. Commonly it can diminish your self-esteem and make it challenging to sustain fulfilling sexual relationships. Our goal is to help you overcome this condition and restore your life to normal.
What causes erectile dysfunction?
Sexual arousal is complicated. As such, a variety of physical, mental, and emotional factors can contribute to erectile dysfunction. A significant factor in treatment is identifying what factors are at play. For many men, it can be more than one. These factors include:
- Low testosterone
- Heart disease
- High cholesterol
- Prostate cancer treatment
- High blood pressure
- Parkinson’s disease
While age isn’t the only reason men develop ED, it is a major contributing factor. As you age, erections can be difficult to achieve and maintain. However, it is far from impossible.
How do urologists diagnose erectile dysfunction?
Comprehensive Urology uses only the most advanced diagnostic capabilities available for diagnosing ED. Using these methods, we can provide personalized solutions that match your unique situation. Two key techniques for diagnosis include hormonal testing and medical imaging. At Comprehensive Urology, we provide both!
We offer a full range of on-site hormonal testing to determine if you have low levels of testosterone. In addition, we have state-of-the-art imaging services to detect poor blood flow in your penis.
How do urologists treat erectile dysfunction?
Dr. Michel and the team at Comprehensive Urology use a multimodality treatment system. The approach aims to minimize the symptoms of erectile dysfunction and can often treat the underlying conditions creating erectile dysfunction. Each treatment will vary, focusing on your unique needs and health.
You may benefit from a single treatment. Or, you may find a combination works best. In every case, we help you find the treatment that will provide optimal results.
Medications can help you achieve and maintain a firm erection. When used correctly, they often can help you continue to have fulfilling sexual experiences.
Common solutions include:
PulseWave therapy uses low-intensity sound waves to naturally enhance blood flow to your penis. This allows you to achieve and maintain a firmer erection.
Intracorporeal injections help the blood vessels in your penis expand to stimulate blood flow. Dr. Michel and the team use customized formulations for every patient.
A vacuum constriction device (VCD) uses a pump to help you get and maintain an erection. While it does not treat underlying causes, it delivers functional results.
Inflatable penis prosthesis
We can implant an inflatable penis prosthesis, or penile implant, into your penis. This implant can enhance its length and girth while helping you maintain a firmer erection.
Which Option Is Best for Me?
We look at every aspect of your situation to build your treatment plan. Our experienced experts have helped countless men overcome ED already, and they look forward to helping you too. At every step, we carefully consider every unique factor that causes your ED.
