Erectile dysfunction, or ED, is a serious men’s health concern. If you are one of the millions of Americans who have ED, we’re glad you’ve decided to seek help from a specialist in Jacksonville, FL.
Let’s talk about what to expect at your visit with an ED doctor.
Expect Careful and Respectful Conversation
ED is no joke, and our ED doctors in Melbourne, FL, know that. ED indicates an actual physical problem, affecting the most intimate of relationships and reducing self-esteem. So, our ED doctors listen carefully to each man who has erectile dysfunction and provide a real solution.
Your men’s health physician will review your medical and medication history at your visit. Be sure to tell him how often ED happens and other accompanying symptoms–urinary incontinence, for example. Your frank input is key to a correct diagnosis and effective treatment plan.
Expect a Comprehensive Physical Exam
This will include a visual inspection of your genitalia and a digital rectal exam (DRE) to assess your prostate gland. Also, the ED doctor will order blood work and other lab tests to look for the underlying physical conditions causing ED. These tests can reveal:
- Low testosterone levels
- High blood cholesterol
- Kidney problems (creatinine levels)
- Liver dysfunction
- High PSA levels, an indicator of prostate cancer
Additionally, your ED doctor may investigate your penile blood flow with a painless ultrasound examination performed right in the office. Also, he’ll discuss any emotional or relationship issues impacting your ability to achieve an erection. These problems can include work stress, depression, alcohol use, marital conflicts, etc.
Expect Erectile Dysfunction Solutions That Address Your Unique Needs
ED–or any men’s health issue–takes more than a quick fix. Treatment takes planning that addresses your health status and sexual history, and goals. At NIVA Men’s Health, we specialize in erectile dysfunction treatments. We avoid needless surgeries and prescription medicine whenever possible.
In fact, our ED physicians offer traditional penile vacuum pumps to assist men in obtaining and maintaining erections sufficient for intercourse. Also, some patients opt for GAINSWave acoustic therapy.
GAINSWave therapy sends low-energy sound waves into the penile shaft to break up harmful plaques and scar tissue. It also promotes improved blood flow.
NIVA Men’s Health also offers testosterone injections and also the innovative P-shot. The P-shot, also called PRP therapy (platelet-rich plasma therapy), consists of the patient’s blood platelets extracted, concentrated, and then injected into the penis. The P-shot stimulates tissue growth and improves blood circulation.
