Erectile dysfunction (ED) is a common condition that impacts men of all ages for a variety of reasons. As a top urology clinic in South Florida, our team of professionals provides erectile dysfunction treatment, among other urological services.
What Is Erectile Dysfunction?
Erectile dysfunction is the inability to achieve and maintain an erection. It affects nearly 30 million men in the U.S and remains an ongoing issue for older men. Most people imagine only older men struggling with this condition, but men of all ages experience the effects of erectile dysfunction. While it’s normal to occasionally struggle to achieve and maintain an erection, consult a board-certified urologist in Miami if you regularly continue to have problems with erections for an extended period of time.
Erectile dysfunction can occur when blood flow to the penis is limited, nerves are harmed as well as when men are under stress or emotional. ED can also be an early sign of a more serious illness such as heart disease, high blood pressure, or diabetes.
Dr. Gheiler specializes in ED and offers a number of treatments for erectile dysfunction to help patients gain their erection back.
Causes of Erectile Dysfunction
The causes of erectile dysfunction in men can stem from physical or psychological problems. Male sexual arousal is an intricate process that involves blood vessels, hormones, nerves, muscles, and the brain. The most common causes of male erectile dysfunction include:
- Sexual performance anxiety
- Vascular disease
- High blood pressure
- Imbalance in hormones
- Peyronie’s disease
- Nerve damage caused by trauma, radiation, or surgery
Treatment for Erectile Dysfunction in South Miami
At Happy Urology, we help patients identify the root cause of their ED. The doctor will first ensure the underlying causes of ED are being treated, which could solve the issue. Psychological counseling and lifestyle changes such as diet and exercise are recommended as well. Depending on the severity and any underlying health conditions, some of the erectile dysfunction treatment options include:
- Oral medications
- Testosterone therapy
- Penile injection
- Intraurethral medication
- Vacuum erection devices
- Surgical implant surgery
Many of the erectile dysfunction treatment options, with some exceptions, are effective for sex and then eventually wear off. They treat the symptoms of erectile dysfunction, but not the root causes, which is why it’s so important to dig deeper and resolve those underlying issues.
