The treatments for erectile dysfunction are tailor-made to the patient.

Now, some men have significant psychogenic erectile dysfunction. This means that they’ve had a bad experience in the past, or perhaps they’ve lost their beloved partner and they’ve just lacking sexual confidence.

These men need to be dealt with sympathetically and generally speaking, with a kind ear and a few kind words so that they regain their confidence.

Now, men with physical or organic erectile dysfunction, men with diabetes or men, who’ve had prostate cancer surgery for example – they need physical treatments.

The commonest physical treatments are the use of pills like Viagra or Cialis, the use of penile injection therapy, or ultimately, and perhaps the best long-term treatment, the implantation of a penile prosthesis.

Erectile dysfunction is a very common problem. It really affects a man’s self-esteem and self-confidence.

Therefore, if you’re listening to me talk about erectile dysfunction, understand that we know it’s a problem, we know it upsets you. Come in and let’s talk about it and let’s individualise the treatment to your particular situation.
