Erectile Dysfunction

Erectile Dysfunction can be a difficult and embarrassing condition to talk about with your partner, let alone with someone you’ve never met. The staff at Michigan Urological Clinic are highly trained and sensitive professionals who make sure that your comfort and well-being are paramount. There are often several different treatment options available, and choosing the appropriate one can be difficult. We’ll spend time with you to reach an appropriate solution.

• Confidential Evaluation and Counseling is a standard part of our treatment.

• Hormonal Therapy

• Vacuum Constriction Devices  A VCD is an external pump that a man places over his penis to help achieve an erection. They are most often used to treat medical causes of erectile dysfunction, including poor blood flow, or nerve damage. They can also be used to treat anxiety-based problems.

• Injection Therapy Injection Therapy, the injection of medication into the shaft of the penis, is used to treat erectile dysfuction that is medically based, such as poor circulation or nerve damage. However, because injection therapy can cause scar tissue, it is not recommended as a first-choice treatment for stress related causes.

• Implanted Inflatable Penile Prostheses  When there is a clear medical reason for not being able to achieve an erection, and when that situation is unlikely to improve, an inflatable penile prosthesis can be surgically implanted into the penis. This will allow a man to have an erection whenever he chooses. The penis doesn’t deflate on its own, but rather the male manually deflates it using a release valve.

• Reconstructive Surgery
