Erectile Dysfunction

Erectile dysfunction (ED) is one of the most common health issues in men, affecting approximately 30 million men in the United States, especially those over the age of 65.

Erectile dysfunction can be caused by low testosterone, stress, injury, or poor blood flow into the penis. Smoking, illicit drugs, and alcohol abuse are also risk factors. In addition, conditions such as obesity, hypertension, lipid disorders, diabetes, and depression may play a role in the development of ED.

In Phoenix, Arizona, urologist Dr. Desi Avila will carefully review your medical history and other factors that may contribute to the problem. He may order penile Doppler studies to evaluate your blood flow. He will then develop a treatment plan that is targeted specifically to your situation, taking the time to explain each option.

Lifestyle changes and exercise may help restore erections. If not successful, there are a variety of non-surgical and surgical treatments available to help restore your sexual function and self-confidence, including oral medications, injections, and implants.

Erectile Dysfunction Treatment Options

  • Oral medication, including Viagra®, Levitra®, Stendra®, and Cialis®
  • Penile injections
  • External vacuum erection devices
  • Penile prosthesis (surgical implant)
  • Penile vibratory stimulation for men with spinal cord injury

Are you ready to reclaim your life? Phoenix urologist Dr. Desi Avila will get to the root of the problem and help you choose the treatment option that is best for you. To make an appointment for erectile dysfunction treatment, call Dr. Avila at (480) 961-2323 or request an appointment online.
