Erectile Dysfunction


Erectile Dysfunction Treatment Options

With the proliferation of oral medications such as Viagra and other PDE-5 inhibitors, the public awareness and treatment options for erectile dysfunction have increased significantly. However, one must differentiate between treating erectile dysfunction as a symptom as opposed to treating the underlying causes, the former leading to more permanent results. The table below provides a comprehensive list of the available treatment options categorised based on the desired treatment outcome. For more information on each treatment option please follow the appropriate links.

Treatment Categories:

  • Achieving on Demand Erections:

The treatments in this category allow patients to achieve on demand erections before and during sexual intercourse. There are four broad options:

  • Erection Rejuvenation/Physiotherapy:

In addition to on demand treatments that can help patients achieve erections, there are other treatments options that can rejuvenate or help patients improve their natural erection mechanism including:

  • Control of risk factors:

The close links between erectile dysfunction conditions such as and diabetes, hyper-tension, cardio-vascular disease and hypogonadism are very well documented and influential in patients treatment plans. With the appropriate medication and lifestyle modifications, these risk factors can improve significantly your incidence of achieving a natural erection.

There are a number of medication categories that can lead to erectile dysfunction. Stopping or changing these drug routines can help, on professional medical advice. Your doctor will advise you extensively during your consultation on these risk-factors and how they can be altered to support your erectile dysfunction treatment.

  • Psycho-sexual counselling:

Erectile dysfunction in most men is multi-factorial and the result of ongoing interacting relations among biological, cognitive, emotional and behavioural, contextual, and interpersonal contributing factors. Consequently, psycho-sexual counselling can work in conjunction with other treatment options in order to improve a your sexual function. During your consultation, the doctor will evaluate your medical and personal history and may refer you for further psycho-sexual counselling and support.

  • Lifestyle modification:

While there are medical conditions that can contribute to erectile dysfunction, for many men, it is poor lifestyle habits that are to blame. Several prescription medications exist to help treat erectile dysfunction but sometimes making lifestyle changes can make a significant difference. The most common risk factors are:

  • Poor diet

  • Smoking

  • Sedentary lifestyle

  • Excessive drinking

  • Stress

These factors can lead to decreased blood flow, dissipate energy and arousal levels, compound relationship issues and contribute to erectile dysfunction.

I am suffering from erectile dysfunction, what should I do next?

We advise you to book a consultation with one of our highly experienced doctors. The first step towards successful treatment is an accurate diagnosis of potential causes by our specialists.

After this, our doctors will seek to do two things:

  • design a treatment plan that will allow you immediately to achieve a strong erection to continue normal sexual activities
  • design a treatment plan to address the underlying causes of your erectile dysfunction. This means that each treatment we offer in our clinic is highly personalised.

While our doctor’s experience from over 30,000 erectile dysfunction patients allows us to create detailed treatment plans, a majority of doctors limit treatment options to medication, often leaving the underlying causes untreated. This can lead to a life-long dependence on drugs and in many cases, long term, unsuccessful treatment and your dissatisfaction.
