When it comes to treatment of erectile dysfunction – New York Urology Specialists are a step ahead. Better Science Means Better Care. The causes of erectile dysfunction or impotence are complex. Problems with obtaining or maintaining an erection that is sufficiently hard for sex can affect men of all ages.
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?
Erectile 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 a 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 a comprehensive evaluation of men with ED including screening for high blood pressure, diabetes and other common conditions that cause ED.
There are many causes of 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.
We offer Latest Treatment Options for Men with Erectile Dysfunction:
- Medical Treatment: Viagra (sildenafil), Cialis as needed and daily Cialis (tadalafil), Levitra (vardenafil), Staxyn, Stendra (avanafil)

ED can be a Sign of Serious Medical Problems
In a majority of men, underlying medical problems manifest as a difficulty in 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 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 among 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).
What are Some of the Other Causes of Erection Problems in Men?
Erectile dysfunction is usually caused by inadequate blood flow to the penis. Men may experience problems with erections and difficulty with sex as a result of penile pain. Low libido or loss of sex-drive can contribute to erection problems in men.
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 an important factor in the 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.

Dr Alex and his staff are through professionals in every sense of the word. From initial diagnosis to a period of evaluating and ruling out options, we decided upon a surgical solution, which appears for the most part to have corrected the issue. Thanks to Ana, and the staff, especially Dr. Alex for treating me so well. Best regards, Lee
