Suffering From Erectile Dysfunction? Learn About Our Solutions

Around age 40, about 5% of men experience erectile dysfunction (ED), or a chronic inability to achieve or maintain erections. After age 40, this number gradually increases. While it can be easy to dismiss symptoms as a normal part of aging, there’s nothing “normal” about true ED. Thankfully, there are numerous effective solutions.

Kiarash Michel, MD is pleased to diagnose and treat erectile dysfunction at the Comprehensive Urology office in Los Angeles, California. Read on to learn about our offerings. 

Erectile dysfunction 101

Most everyone with a penis experiences occasional challenges in the erection department. While such instances are nothing to fret about, erectile dysfunction, also known as impotence, keeps you from getting or staying “hard” enough for sex, potentially leading to embarrassment, frustration, relationship problems, low sex drive, and reduced life quality. 

ED can stem from a range of causes that interfere with blood flow to the genital region, including:

Erectile dysfunction treatments

Your best ED treatment option will depend on a variety of factors, such as the underlying cause and severity of your symptoms. Once Dr. Michel confirms that you have ED, he may recommend one or more of the following therapies:

Dr. Michel also uses shockwave therapy, which delivers low-intensity soundwaves through erectile tissue to restore natural function.

You might also benefits from sex or relationship therapy and lifestyle changes, such as improved sleep hygiene, stress management, and increased physical activity. Most adults need 7-9 hours of restful sleep per night for overall health and sexual function.

Benefits of erectile dysfunction treatment

The most obvious benefit of effective erectile dysfunction treatment is improved erection abilities, but you can expect far more than that. Because ED often derives from another condition in need of treatment, such as heart disease, seeing Dr. Michel for proper diagnosis and care may help elongate your life while increasing your overall wellness. 

Improved lifestyle habits aimed at managing erectile dysfunction can bring a range of benefits, too, from more positive moods and energy levels to a sharper memory. Perhaps most gratifying of all, your sense of self and relationships with others, especially an intimate partner, will likely strengthen.
