Erectile Dysfunction

Erectile dysfunction (ED), or impotence, affects about half of men between the ages of 40 and 70.  With treatment, most of these men can be restored to satisfying sexual function.

Causes of ED commonly include:

  • Vascular disease
  • Diabetes
  • Prescription medication side-effects
  • Neurological problems
  • Psychological barriers
  • Low Testosterone
  • Peyronie’s disease
  • Prostate cancer treatment

Although the diagnosis usually can be made with careful questioning and an examination by your doctor, blood work or other tests may be needed.

Many treatments are available:

  • Behavior modification
  • Oral medication
  • Hormone treatment
  • Injections or intra-urethral suppositories

    • Multicomponent inflatable penile prosthesis
