If you are looking for a urology clinic that specializes in men’s health, there are a few things to consider to help ensure that you choose the best. First, you will want a board-certified, fellowship-trained, and highly experienced urologist who has a positive bedside manner.
At Ironwood Urology, Dr. Desi Avila is one of Phoenix’s leading men’s health specialists who focuses on all aspects of men’s healthcare, including low testosterone (low-T), infertility, vasectomy, erectile dysfunction (ED), and prostate health. Dr. Avila takes a patient-focused approach and is committed to helping men who have complex urological issues, offering expert diagnosis and the latest in nonsurgical and surgical urologic treatments.
Focusing on Men’s Healthcare
Dr. Avila assesses and treats a variety of men’s health conditions, including:
A number of sexual health problems can affect men. Erectile dysfunction affects as many as 30 million men in the United States and is one of the most common sexual health conditions. It can be caused by factors including low testosterone, stress, injury, and poor blood flow.
Dr. Avila can offer a range of nonsurgical and surgical treatments to successfully address your sexual health issues. Your treatment may include oral medication, injection therapy, external erection devices, or penile prosthesis.
If a couple is unable to conceive a child after trying for a year or longer, infertility is usually suspected. Infertility affects around 7% of couples.
Fertility specialist Dr. Avila can help to identify the cause of your infertility, and he can employ a variety of nonsurgical and surgical methods to greatly increase your partner’s chances of becoming pregnant.
Testosterone is key to muscle development and sex drive. It also plays an important role in the health of your brain, kidneys, bones, and liver. If you have low testosterone, you may experience fatigue, mood changes, depression, sexual dysfunction, and a decreased sex drive. If you suspect that you have low-T, Dr. Avila can determine the cause and can help regulate the level of testosterone in your body, using the treatment best-suited to your individual needs.
Growing older can increase your risk of prostate problems. An annual prostate exam allows Dr. Avila to detect and treat any prostate issues in their earliest stages, including inflammation (prostatitis), enlarged prostate (BPH, or benign prostatic hyperplasia), and prostate cancer. Symptoms of a possible prostate issue include a weak bladder, trouble urinating, pain or burning when urinating, and blood in the urine or semen. These should be evaluated by a skilled urologist as soon as possible.
Vasectomy and Vasectomy Reversal
A vasectomy is a safe, effective method of permanent male birth control. At Ironwood Urology, we offer the latest advancements in male sterilization surgery that can be performed as an outpatient procedure.
Compared to traditional vasectomies, the minimally invasive no-scalpel technique is almost painless and allows you to resume your sex life faster. It also tends to cause fewer post-op complications.
Dr. Avila also offers vasectomy reversal for men who have had a vasectomy in the past but would like to father children again. This treatment doesn’t always work, but you will have a much better chance of success if you have your vasectomy reversal performed by an experienced urologist.
