Advanced Solutions for ED & Impotence

Erectile dysfunction (ED) refers to the inability to achieve and maintain an erection strong enough to allow sexual intercourse. This is also referred to as impotence. Impotence differs from other male sexual dysfunctions such as premature ejaculation, Klinefelter syndrome (little or no sperm) Peyronie's disease (severe penile curvature) and priapism (painful, prolonged erections).

Most researchers believe that ED has physical causes rather than psychological. Certain physical problems can affect the blood supply to the penis. Without adequate blood flow, erection and intercourse are impossible. Though most men encounter ED in their 60s, it is not uncommon for younger men in their 40s and 50s to experience problems, as well.

Impotence has many causes

Cardiovascular factors such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, smoking and family history of heart disease can contribute to ED. Other conditions that can cause ED include coronary artery disease and peripheral vascular disease. Men who have had pelvic surgery or radiation treatments for pelvic cancer or who take certain medications are also at risk.

The good news is that ED and impotence are treatable conditions, and we have some of the best male infertility/impotence treatment specialists in the country right here at Orange County Urology Associates.

Our impotence patients come to us from Huntington Beach, Laguna Hills, Irvine, Mission Viejo and Lake Forest in Orange County, CA.
