Erectile dysfunction can affect men of any age and can be caused by many different issues. It is estimated that 5% of men 40 and under have some level of erectile dysfunction, this increases to 50% of men in their 50‘s, 60% in there 60, and continues to rise as we age. It is a very sensitive and emotional issue and because of this, many men suffer in silence. Sadly, this can lead to depression, lack of self esteem, substance abuse, and relationship issues. Our goal is to get to the root cause or causes of your ED and use the most advanced medical treatments available to resolve your issues and help you live life to the fullest.
The act of achieving and maintaining an erection is a complex process involving many bodily functions including the brain, hormones, nerves, muscles, and the circulatory system. Our expert providers review your medical history, perform a thorough exam, and get laboratory tests to pin point exactly where the breakdown lies. We work with you to put together a personalized treatment plan using one or more of the following treatment options based on your needs. Our goal is to improve your sexual health so that you can live vibrantly and spontaneously again!
Conditions we Treat:
Erectile Dysfunction- There are varying degrees and can include difficulty in achieving or maintaining an erection, reduced sensitivity, and reduced sexual desire.
Peyronie’s Disease- Also called penile fibrosis that causes curved, painful erections
Premature Ejaculation- It is estimated that 20-30% of men report ejaculating before he or his partner would like to.
Low Testosterone- In men this can lead to difficulty in getting or maintaining an erection, a reduction in testicle size and can reduce the amount of semen a man is able to produce. It can also cause hair loss, fatigue, mood swings, depression, difficulty sleeping, hot flashes, a lowered sex drive, it can result in a loss of muscle mass and increased body fat, and it even affects bone density. Men with low Testosterone often report an overall feeling of “lack of energy” or feeling they have “no motivation.”
Testosterone Replacement- Manufactured hormone supplements that are chemically identical to those your own body makes. These can be administered through pills, gels, creams, or injections.
Hormone Pellet Insertion- Bio-identical testosterone that is surgically implanted in the sub-dermal layer of your skin. The pellets release testosterone in a steady consistent stream much like your body does naturally.
Acoustic Wave Therapy- A state of the art, non-invasive and virtually pain free procedure using low-intensity waves. These waves are able to trigger a process called neovascularization which helps the body form new blood vessel and improve blood flow to the region. (Please see our Acoustic Wave Website to learn more)
Priapus Shot® (otherwise known as a P-Shot®)– is a 20 minute non-surgical procedure. Blood is drawn from your body and spun down to separate the platelet rich plasma. The penis is numbed with a topical cream and then the plasma is injected into the shaft and head of the penis with a very tiny needle. There is no recovery time and some men experience immediate results. The body continues to heal itself and the full results are evident in two to three months. (Reported results: increased sensitivity, increased ability to achieve and maintain an erection, possible increased girth. Advantages: drug free, non-surgical, relatively pain free.)
Injectable Medications- prostaglandins or vasodilators such as Edex or Caverject
Custom Compounded Medications– Bi-Mix, Tri-Mix or Quad-Mix injectable medications
Standard Medications- PDE5 inhibitors such as Viagra, Cialis, Levitra, etc.
Vacuum pumps and rings- such as ErecAid- a non-invasive, non pharmaceutical approach to treating ED.
Nutritional Support- supplements such as L-Arginine or L-Citruline
