Like it or not, the majority of men will develop sexual dysfunction at some point in their lives. Whether it is mild or severe, chronic or intermittent, sexual dysfunction can be extremely frustrating and can take a toll on your confidence, relationship, and overall well-being. Fortunately, the sweeping advances in medicine and technology give men more options now than ever before for treating a wide range of sexual dysfunction conditions, including ED. The acclaimed team at Kasraeian Urology, led by board-certified urologists Drs. Ahmad and Ali Kasraeian, understands the complex and disruptive nature of male sexual dysfunction and is proud to offer the latest and most effective erectile dysfunction treatment options in Jacksonville, FL. 

 

What causes erectile dysfunction?  

Erectile dysfunction (ED) is most often characterized by the inability to achieve and/or maintain a reliable, firm, prolonged erection that is adequate for sexual activity. For some men, problems with erections are isolated or situational, while others experience chronic ED due to an underlying condition or mechanical abnormality. Oftentimes, ED is multifactorial, meaning there is more than one factor contributing to the patient’s symptoms. Some of the most common erectile dysfunction risk factors and causes include: 

  

  • Hormone imbalance/low testosterone 
  • Andropause 
  • Age 
  • Poor circulation 
  • Heart disease 
  • Obesity 
  • Certain medications 
  • Drug/alcohol use 
  • Psychological factors 
  • Stress/anxiety 
  • Trauma 
  • Previous surgery/prostate surgery 

 

How is ED treated?  

Perhaps the most well-known treatment for erectile dysfunction is the oral medication Viagra (Sildenafil). While Viagra can certainly be a fantastic option for improving the quality of erections, many men are interested in more natural, convenient, affordable, or reliable alternatives to Viagra. Some of the most popular treatments for ED in the Jacksonville Beach area include: 

  

  • Oral medication (Viagra, Cialis®, Stendra®, etc.) 
  • TriMix injection 
  • Penile implant/pump 
  • Vacuum constrictor device 
  • Psychotherapy/counseling 
  • Behavioral modification 
  • Hormone replacement therapy 
  • Shockwave therapy 

 

What is shockwave therapy for ED? 

With the increasing interest in more natural and holistic therapies for erectile dysfunction, many men are choosing nonsurgical shockwave therapy. This breakthrough treatment delivers virtually painless ultrasonic waves to the penis in order to remodel tissues, strengthen blood vessels, and increase blood flow to the penis. In the days and weeks following a quick shockwave ED treatment, which typically lasts 30 minutes or less and requires no downtime, patients will begin to develop stronger, firmer, longer-lasting erections. 

What’s the best treatment for erectile dysfunction?  

Because each man’s situation is unique, the “best” treatment for ED can vary from patient to patient. Drs. Ahmad and Ali Kasraeian are committed to finding the most appropriate and effective erectile dysfunction treatment for each patient based on his specific needs, goals, and overall situation. During your initial consultation for ED treatment in the Greater Jacksonville area, Dr. Kasraeian will take a thorough health history, perform an examination, and order any necessary studies – including lab work or imaging – to determine the cause and severity of your condition. Based on this information, Dr. Kasraeian will discuss with you all of the available ED treatment options to find the one best suited to your needs. 

 

Is it safe for me to take Viagra?  

The majority of adult men who are in good health can safely take Viagra for ED, but it is important to consult with your physician before starting Viagra, as some side effects are possible. Men who have certain health conditions, including chest pain or heart disease, or those who are taking nitrate medications, should not take Viagra. During your consultation, Dr. Kasraeian will help determine whether Viagra is safe and appropriate for you.
