Erectile dysfunction (ED) affects an estimated 52% of men, and this percentage can increase with age. While common, ED can feel embarrassing to discuss even with those closest to you, let alone with a doctor. The right ED treatment can restore functionality, helping you feel better about your sex life again.

Nearly any man who has erectile dysfunction can be a good candidate for ED treatment. In some cases, ED is caused by an underlying medical condition that needs to be addressed first. For example, men who cannot sustain an erection due to penile curvature may require penile corrective treatment, while those with low testosterone levels could benefit from testosterone replacement therapy. Other men have decreased blood flow, or a condition called a venous leak, both of which can be improved with medications or low intensity shock wave (LISW) therapy.
There are many options today for treating erectile dysfunction:
The approach Dr. Dellinger recommends will depend on your individual situation as well as your personal goals.
The goal of any ED treatment is to fully restore your sexual function. Dr. Dellinger will work closely with you to ensure that the suggested treatment plan is effective. Because each individual is different, Dr. Dellinger will tailor his approach to your desired results. This may include trying different ED treatments to see which one your body responds to best, or combining treatments for an optimum outcome.
Although ED is more common in men who are older than 70, erectile dysfunction doesn’t have to be a mandatory part of growing older. There’s no reason to expect that you can’t enjoy a healthy sex life at every age.
Although there are risks and side effects associated with any medical treatment, treatment for ED is reasonably low-risk when administered under the supervision of a medical professional. It’s a much larger risk to buy ED treatment products online without medical advice.
Because ED has an impact on your sexual partner as well as yourself, including them in your ED treatment decisions can be helpful. However, the choice of whether to share any information about your ED or your treatment for ED is entirely up to you.
