Erectile Dysfunction Treatment Options

Erectile Dysfunction Treatment Options

Erectile dysfunction may be a source of frustration and even embarrassment to men struggling with this condition, but ED itself doesn’t have to be permanent. Thanks to new treatment methods and approaches to providing care, more and more men are discovering that erectile dysfunction can be treated and even eliminated through innovative treatments and supportive care from an erectile dysfunction specialist.

If you’re unconvinced about the benefits of working with an expert to address your erectile dysfunction, it’s time to educate yourself on the proven methods and high success rates that come with cutting-edge ED treatments. Here’s a look at these emerging treatment methods, the success rates and benefits of modern interventions, and what you can expect when you schedule an appointment with an ED doctor.

Erectile Dysfunction: New Treatments to Consider

Whether you’re seeking out ED treatment for the first time, or you’ve tried unsuccessfully to address this condition in the past, there’s reason to believe that new treatment methods for erectile dysfunction could give you a better shot at improved results than other interventions that may have been prescribed in the past.

One of the emerging erectile dysfunction options for treatment is the use of low-intensity shockwaves to rehabilitate the vascular structures in the penis, improving blood flow and the ability of the penis to produce an erection. This is a noninvasive treatment option, more commonly known as Focused Linear Compression Therapy, has been shown in research studies to be highly effective in some patients. It is a painless procedure that can improve not only a patient’s ability to gain a spontaneous erection, but also to improve penis sensitivity through nerve tissue rehabilitation, and it brings no harmful side effects to patients receiving this treatment.

The Benefits of Working With an Erectile Dysfunction Doctor

Wondering why you should visit a doctor specializing in erectile dysfunction, rather than the doctor or clinic where you have already established care for other medical needs? A doctor specializing in ED can offer a number of benefits to your healthcare experience, including:

  • Specialization in your particular area of need. Unlike the care you receive from a general practitioner, erectile dysfunction specialists are experts in their field, and focus their practice solely on serving the exact same problems that have compelled you to seek medical help.
  • A relationship based on mutual respect and trust. By consolidating your ED care with a single provider and clinic, you can develop a closer relationship that will improve your ability to speak candidly about your condition, your struggles, and your goals for treatment.
  • Evidence-based treatment and care. ED doctors and specialty clinics stay on top of the latest developments in treating erectile dysfunction and Peyronie’s disease, which gives their patients access to better care based on the latest research and scientific breakthroughs.
  • Industry-leading treatment efficacy rates. About 80 percent of all men receiving FLCT treatments for erectile dysfunction report such positive results that they stop taking oral erection medications. Overall 90 percent of all patients would recommend these ED treatments to another person.

What to Expect When Visiting an Erectile Dysfunction Specialist

When visiting an erectile dysfunction clinic for the first time, it can be difficult to know what to expect. Too often, that fear of the unknown discourages would-be patients from scheduling a meeting and seeking out health. For this reason, we’ve decided to outline the typical process a new patient might experience as they start their journey back to better sexual health. This journey will include the following steps:

  • A preliminary consultation. In this initial meeting, a member of our in- house care team will share important information about our services, and make sure our clinic is a good fit for your medical care needs.
  • An ultrasound to evaluate the vascular condition of your penis. This ultrasound will help the clinician evaluate the vascular condition of your penis. The clinician will look for signs of vascular damage to determine whether our rehabilitative services could be beneficial for your erectile dysfunction.
  • Additional evaluation and questioning to fully understand your unique case of ED. In addition to an ultrasound, further evaluation and diagnosis may be required to understand the full extent of your ED, including your history of erectile dysfunction and the presence of other medical issues that may be causing or complicating your erectile dysfunction.
  • A proposed treatment plan. While individual treatments last around 20 minutes each, the number of treatments required to alleviate erectile dysfunction can vary from one patient to the next.
  • The ability to get answers to all of your questions. We understand that choosing to start erectile dysfunction treatments can be a tough decision for many patients. We want all of our prospective patients to feel comfortable asking their clinicians any questions they might have related to the treatment process or their overall sexual or physical health.

Choosing to seek out help for erectile dysfunction is a big step in its own right, but it’s only the start of a much larger journey that could lead you back to improved sexual health and overall wellness.
