Erectile dysfunction is a condition that affects many men as they age, often presenting after the age of 40. This problem, often referred to as “ED,” can impact a man’s sexual and reproductive health. It can be embarrassing or stressful, keeping them from having positive experiences in the bedroom. When a man is unable to get an erection, or has trouble maintaining it, it is always a good idea to speak to a professional about the issue to seek a solution. Erectile dysfunction may be a physical or psychological concern, and can be improved with the help of a doctor.
What causes erectile dysfunction?
To find out the best treatment for an individual, Dr. Jack Bertolino needs to first determine the cause of the erectile dysfunction. Chronic issues with achieving and maintaining an erection can stem from:
- Certain medical conditions and health problems such as heart disease
- Psychological concerns such as stress or emotions
- The nerves of the penis are harmed or impacted
- Blood flow to the penis is limited
- Treatments for prostate cancer or prostate enlargement
- Alcoholism and substance abuse
- High blood pressure or cholesterol levels
- Sleep disorders
- Depression and anxiety
What are some treatments available for erectile dysfunction?
At Smooth Solutions Medical Aesthetics, we offer two primary treatment options for patients with erectile dysfunction to consider. These include the use of acoustic wave therapy to increase blood flow to the penis, or a specialized shot called the P-Shot. The P-Shot, or Priapus Shot, uses blood platelets and stem cells harvested from the patient to reinject into the penis to stimulate new tissue growth and improve blood flow to the area. Both of these methods have proven to be helpful for patients who have struggled with erectile dysfunction and the embarrassment it can cause.
