Impotence

If it is difficult keeping a healthy erection, and it is affecting your self-esteem and confidence, our team of urologists can help. We offer treatment services for men of all ages with impotence, also known as erectile dysfunction.

We offer non-surgical treatments, safe injection therapy and implants.

Causes of impotence

Impotence can occur when blood flow is restricted in the penis. Men can experience it occasionally because of stress or negative emotions, however it can be a side effect of underlying medical conditions such as diabetes, heart disease or high blood pressure.

Men may also develop erectile dysfunction if they develop atherosclerosis, when arteries begin to harden.

How impotence is diagnosed

Impotence is diagnosed after reviewing symptoms, medical history, lifestyle and stress factors. Your provider will also perform a physical exam, check blood pressure and check your prostate.

Treatments

There are oral and injectable medications available for recurring impotence.

When conservative treatments are not enough to treat erectile dysfunction, you may be a candidate for penile implant surgery. Most penile implant procedures are outpatient procedures with a relatively short recovery period.
