Erectile Dysfunction: Causes & Treatments
There are many treatments believe it ornot for erectile dysfunction and manytimes we see on TV commercials thatadvertised pills that can treat this problem. Believe it or not, there are also othertreatments that are availableabove and beyond all the pills. In fact30 – 40 percent of men thattried pills might not have a goodresponse to such medications. And manymen might suffer from a side effect fromthe actual medication itself. So for such men, I normally recommendthat there are other treatments out therelike vacuum pumps, penile injectiontherapy, urethral suppositories or believe it or notminimally invasive surgery such aspenile implant procedures that can bedone for this. At Einstein we offer allof these aspects of treatment and weeven have a referral based practice forsurrounding communities as well assurrounding states the treat patientsfor these problems. Surgery for this typeof a problem itself is something thatcomes with many myths and I try in myoffice to debunk the many myths that areassociated with surgery. Penile implant surgery has time-testedlarge rates and high rates ofsatisfaction and many of our patientshave had an excellent outcome afterundergoing surgery and after sufferingfor years and in some cases decades from this devastating problem. Erectile dysfunction really can be asign that there is a blood flow problemwithin your body that’s leading to theissue at hand. Many times I tell patients that theirnumerous causes such as heart problems,vascular disease, diabetes, neurologicconditions, trauma, the side effectscoming from medications or a combination of these factors. Age alone is not areason for a man to have difficulty witherections and I often encourage men thatthat have erectile dysfunction to seekthe consultation of their primarymedical doctor or an erectiledysfunction specialist to helpunderstand their reasons for having thisproblem and undergo the appropriatetesting that they need to undergo inorder to help treat the condition appropriately.
