What is Erectile Dysfunction?

Erectile dysfunction (impotence or ED) is the inability to obtain an adequate erection or maintain an erection that is hard enough for a satisfying sexual intercourse.  More than 30 million men of all ages suffer from this disorder in the United States.

Who Suffers from Erectile Dysfunction?

LoveErectile dysfunction is not a natural part of aging. In fact many healthy men who are 80-90 years old enjoy good erections and are sexually active.

ED becomes more common as men get older because of higher prevalence of medical problems that cause ED including high blood pressure, diabetes and vascular disease.  Yet many men as young as 20-30 years old suffer from ED.

ED may be the first sign of serious medical problems in many men.  If you experienced problems with erections, it is important to get a prompt medical evaluation. 

We provide comprehensive evaluation for men with ED including screening for high blood pressure, diabetes and other common conditions that cause ED. 

There are many causes for erectile dysfunction. Some of the causes are environmental and situational such as anxiety, stress or relationship problems.  These are commonly classified as psychological causes of ED.  

We understand that obtaining and maintaining a hard erection is crucial for sexual satisfaction.

ED can be a Sign of Serious Medical Problems

In majority of men, underlying medical problems manifest can manifest as a difficulty with obtaining or maintaining hard erections.  Many men develop ED as a result of underlying medical problems such as high blood pressure, diabetes, peripheral vascular disease, cholesterol, renal failure, neurological problems such as MS (Multiple Sclerosis). Certain medications (including antihypertensive and anti-depression medications such as SSRI) can also cause ED.  Men with impotence can also suffer from low libido or lack of sexual interest.

Having occasional erection trouble is not necessarily a cause for concern. Most men experience an occasional difficulty with getting an erection.  But if erectile dysfunction is a persistent and ongoing problem, medical evaluation is warranted.  ED can cause severe distress, often leads to relationship problems and can affect your self-confidence.  It can lead to depression and affect work performance.

Doctors at New York Urology Specialists are experienced in discussing ED.  You can be comfortable with the knowledge that your needs will be taken seriously. ED can be a sign of serious health problems

What is the Difference between Erectile Dysfunction and Premature Ejaculation?

Premature ejaculation is a common problem in men. Sometimes premature ejaculation is the only problem; other times premature ejaculation and erectile dysfunction can coexist together.

Premature ejaculation occurs when a man loses erection after ejaculation, which occurs too soon  – often men ejaculate within 1-3 minutes of getting an erection. Erectile dysfunction typically results in loss of erection before ejaculation.

At New York Urology Specialists, we offer treatment for both erectile dysfunction (ED) and premature ejaculation (PE).

There are Several Treatment Options Available for Men with ED.  

A thorough medical evaluation is necessary for men with ED to elucidate underlying causes of ED.  It is not uncommon to diagnose another significant medical problem in what otherwise appear healthy men who present to the urologist with ED as their only symptom.

The urologists at New York Urology Specialists offer innovative evidence-based treatment options for erectile dysfunction.  We take a holistic approach to care. Prevention of ED should be the cornerstone of treatment for ED. Exercise has been shown to help with erections. Similarly, in overweight men, weight loss is important component in treatment of erectile dysfunction.

Medical treatment for erectile dysfunction as well as surgical options can be used when necessary to achieve optimal erections and sexual function.
