This is a procedure that is performed in our office and generally takes up to 30 minutes to complete.
Erectile Dysfunction (ED) is a common problem affecting approximately 30 million men in the United States. Smoking, diabetes, hypertension, obesity, and older age are common risk factors for the development of ED. Our office manages ED patients through addressing risks factors, medications, injections, and surgery.
Peyronie's disease causes a curvature of the penis with erection. The tubes in the penis that hold the blood and provide an erection are called corpora. The lining of these corpora develop a fibrous scar tissue that causes the bending of the penis during erection. It may be associated with pain, especially in the early phase of the disease while the plaque is forming. We offer the minimally invasive Xiaflex injections as well as all the surgical treatment options for managing Peyronie's disease.
Testosterone is a male hormone. Testosterone helps to build muscles, bones, and increase sex drive in men. After age 30, most men experience a gradual decline in testosterone. When levels become too low, men can feel sluggish, weaker, and have reduced interest in sex.
Our office provides testosterone replacement through medications and injection therapy. We follow patients to monitor their safety and progress with testosterone replacement therapy.
Approximately 15% of couples will experience difficulty in achieving a pregnancy after one year of regular sexual intercourse. Male infertility may be due to abnormal production of sperm or problems with delivering those sperm to the woman's egg. Urologists can evaluate and provide treatments for men with infertility.
