Impotence or erectile dysfunction is a very common problem that affects 20 million (one out of five) American Men. Erectile dysfunction can be the result of a single factor, or more commonly, a combination of factors.
At one time impotence was thought to be the result of psychological problems, but we now know that 90% of the cases are organic in nature. Some of the many causes of impotence include: diabetes, high blood pressure, heart and vascular disease, stress, hormone problems, pelvic surgery, trauma, a venous leak, and side effects of frequently prescribed medications.
Whatever the cause, most men have a secondary psychological reaction that can worsen the situation. Feelings of performance anxiety, guilt, and low self-esteem are common.
For many years impotence was a problem that was not talked about because of its sensitive nature. Men suffering from this condition often do not know about the various treatment options available to them and do not seek help. One mission of the Center for Male Reproductive Medicine is to educate men about erectile dysfunction and provide them with effective, cost-efficient and rapid solutions which they can use to restore an active and gratifying sex life.
We believe in the “goal-oriented” approach to impotence and, as such, rarely recommend costly vascular and sleep studies which can be useful in diagnosis, but offer no practical solutions. Usually within 1-2 visits, and at a cost of under $400, a successful treatment program can be established for most men.
