Erectile Dysfunction Q & A

Midtown Urology Associates

What are the treatment options for erectile dysfunction?

Most men believe that prescription medication is the most effective treatment option for erectile dysfunction, but this view is often misguided. When ED is the result of an underlying health issue, finding and addressing that problem first is the best approach.

Many men choose to use medications on a short-term basis while they work on improving health issues that may also be impacting their erectile dysfunction. This approach boosts your overall health and wellness temporarily while you address other problems, allowing you to enjoy a long and happy life, including a healthy sexual relationship.

Additional treatment options include:

  • Testosterone replacement therapy
  • Vacuum erection devices
  • Penile implants
  • Low-Intensity Shockwave Therapy

Low-Intensity Shockwave Therapy for Erectile Dysfunction

If you are one of the millions of men who suffer from erectile dysfunction, then you may benefit from shockwave therapy. Pills, pumps, and shots can be expensive and only address the symptoms, not the underlying problem. Shockwave therapy addresses the cause and helps improve blood flow for a natural and lasting solution.*

  • Pain-free procedure
  • May have long term improvement in function
  • No new medications
  • No reported side effects
  • Promotes tissue regeneration
  • Non-invasive procedure
  • Quick 20-minute sessions with results often seen after a few visits

Who is this for?

Millions of men experience erectile dysfunction as they get older. Blood vessels begin to weaken and blood flow is impaired. Low intensity shockwaves help regenerate these blood vessels for a natural and potentially long-term solution.

What to expect?

The treatment regimen will be individualized for you based on your history. Typically, only a few weeks of treatment are needed. Each session lasts around 20 minutes and does not require any anesthesia or produce any major side effects.

How is erectile dysfunction defined?

All men experience occasional inability to reach or maintain an erection, which is perfectly normal. However, when the issue persists over time, you may be suffering from erectile dysfunction. Know that you are not alone; according to the Merck Manual, as many as half of all men over the age of 40 experience ED.

Erectile dysfunction is more prevalent in older men, but men of any age can experience it. Left untreated, ED can lead to relationship issues, reduced sex drive, and depression. There are numerous ways to combat this problem, and speaking with the doctors at Midtown Urology Associates is the best place to begin.

What are the causes of erectile dysfunction?

Numerous factors can lead to difficulty in getting or maintaining an erection. Some of the more common causes include:

  • Heart disease
  • Diabetes
  • Obesity
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Sleep disorders
  • Tobacco use
  • High cholesterol
  • Alcoholism or substance abuse
  • Certain prescription medications
  • Stress or relationship troubles

Your doctor at Midtown Urology Associates reviews your overall health and gathers information about your lifestyle as part of the diagnostic process. This isn't the time to be shy; providing full and accurate information can make it easier for your doctor to treat your ED.

No two men share the same set of concerns when it comes to erectile dysfunction, and each man deserves a customized treatment path to address this condition. To learn more about ED, schedule an appointment online or over the phone at your earliest convenience.
