The topic of men’s sexual health has become much more open to discussion. Men no longer shield their concerns about these issues and are now more likely to express them to an appropriate health care professional with the expectation of receiving an appropriate evaluation and treatment.
Typical concerns include:
- Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART)
- Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) – enlargement of the prostate
- Erectile Dysfunction (ED) – problems achieving and/or maintaining an erection sufficient for satisfactory sexual intercourse;
- Male Infertility & Microsurgery
Delayed or Retarded Ejaculation
If you suffer from this problem, the first step towards recovery involves a consultation and examination. At that time you may undergo blood tests to help identify some of the causes listed above. While there is no pill available to induce an orgasm in men per se, therapies are available to help treat specific causes as they are identified.
Anejaculation (Ejaculation absent)
Hypogonadism (low serum Testosterone)
The first step in rectifying these problems is to discuss your situation with a Urologist who can help to define your particular problem and identify any risk factors or lifestyle changes that, when addressed, could improve your function. Part of this consultation typically includes a full Medical History and review of your current medications. A blood test allows evaluation of your hormone status. The blood pressure and neurological status of the genital area is also assessed. These non-invasive studies can easily be completed in one visit. Usually, at that same visit a preliminary diagnosis can be formulated and appropriate treatment can be instituted. In certain more complex cases, more sophisticated tests can be scheduled to assess penile arterial and venous blood flow.
Our staff has the expertise and the equipment to perform all of the above testing in a comfortable and private office setting. We offer all forms of therapy as indicated by the testing described above. These include: oral medication when appropriate, intrapenile injection therapy, implantation of penile prostheses and microsurgery when indicated. Using this approach, our success rate in allowing men the ability to return to satisfactory sexual relations approaches 90%.
