Erectile dysfunction (ED) is the most common sexual health problem that men report to their doctor. It is estimated that 30 million men have ED. ED can effect men of all ages from time to time but tends to be progressive as men get older. There are some medical considerations that need to be addressed during any evaluation. Heart and vascular function should be investigated prior to or during the initial evaluation.

What is Erectile Dysfunction?

Treatment Options for Erectile Dysfunction

There are a number of therapies that your doctor may discuss with you. Options tend to be progressive with initial focus on changes in diet and overall health. Some men do not respond to this type of therapy and may require treatment with medication such as Viagra (Sildenafil), Cialis (Tadalafil) or Stendra (Avanafil).

Device Options for Erectile Dysfunction

Additional options may include vacuum erection devices, penile traction devices, tablets that may be placed in the urethra, injection therapy or surgical therapy. You should speak with your doctor about all options available.

Vacuum Device

A vacuum erection device or pump mechanically enhances the flow of blood into the penis. A plastic cylinder is placed over the penis, and an external penile pump (either manual or battery operated) creates vacuum suction within the cylinder, drawing blood into the penis to create an erection. A stretchable tension band is then placed at the base of the penis to maintain the erection long enough to have sex (up to 30 minutes).

Traction Device

RestoreX was developed in cooperation with Mayo Clinic and was invented by a board-certified Urologist specializing in Men’s Sexual Health. RestoreX treats Peyronie’s disease as well as lost penile length resulting from urological surgeries and treatments or chronic disease.

Penile Implant Device

When other treatments haven’t helped, a penile implant may be the right solution. A penile implant is a medical device that is surgically placed into a penis to mimic the look and performance of a natural erection. Implants are custom-fitted to your anatomy. Sensitivity and the ability to ejaculate aren’t typically affected either, so you’ll be able to have an orgasm normally (unless you have a medical condition that prevents this)
