There are plenty of advertisements and commercials talking about erectile dysfunction. By now we all know that Erectile dysfunction (ED) is the inability to achieve a full or consistent erection for satisfactory sexual activity. It’s common after forty and by the time men reach fifty years of age, half of men have it.
What’s often left out of these commercials is that 80% of erectile dysfunction cases are due to chronic diseases such as Diabetes, Vascular Disease, and Testosterone Deficiency or a side effect of a medication used to treat these chronic conditions. The other thing that is left out is that if you can identify the cause, you can sometimes treat it or at least prevent it from getting worse.
When it comes to erectile dysfunction, lifestyle choices have a significant impact on outcomes. We address lifestyle so that our patients have the best chance at improving their overall health and performance. We have all the standard medications used for erectile dysfunction as well as some your doctor may not be familiar with. For example, in those patients who have failed or are unable to take the PDE-5 inhibitors, intracorporal injections of Prostaglandin (PGE1) monotherapy, Bimix, or Trimix work best.
We understand that you have questions and need guidance figuring what works best for you. Don’t worry, our appointments allow for a thorough understanding of your options when it comes to treating erectile dysfunction. Your well-being is our highest concern.
