Erectile dysfunction is a difficult, yet very common issue for men. For example, 50% of men over 50 have some form of ED.
What is ED?
ED is defined as difficulty obtaining and maintaining erections. This is often a direct of multiple factors. Circulation plays a role in ED, therefore a history of high blood pressure, high cholesterol or being overweight can all take a toll on the small arteries and veins in the penile tissue which are responsible for obtaining and maintaining erections.
Hormones, specifically testosterone plays a very important role in sex drive and erectile function so this will also be addressed during your consultation.
A treatment plan which is fine tailored to your specific health status will likely improve not only your erectile function but also your overall quality of life.
Extremely effective treatment methods for Erectile dysfunction include:
PRP for Penile Enhancement Injection:
This procedure is done in the office after a quick blood draw and lab procedure to separate the platelet rich plasma, or your body’s healing and growth factors, which are then used to be injected into the penile tissue after numbing the area.
This procedure helps to regenerate the tissue in the penile tissue causing for better and stronger blood flow, in turn resulting in stronger erections that last longer. Some men report feeling their penis is larger after the procedure, while others report more sensitivity and increased sexual pleasure.
Shockwave Therapy for ED:
LI-ESWL (Low intensity extra-corporeal shockwave lithotripsy) is a technology which is used to treat erectile dysfunction. By applying soundwaves through a hand piece, this treatment causes the arteries and veins in the penile tissue to regenerate, otherwise known as a process called angiogenesis.

Abnormal penile curvature which is bothersome to the patient, otherwise known as Peyronie’s disease. Peyronie’s disease is the result of an abnormal plaque of scar tissue which forms in the penile shaft. Soundwaves in combination with specific medications or PRP for penile enhancement injection may be recommended treatments.
