Male Urological Disorders

Male Urological Disorders

There are few things in life more embarrassing or difficult for men to discuss than erectile dysfunction (ED) or urinary problems. What you need to know is that we understand these problems and they are treatable. Today’s technology and treatments are extremely effective for urinary incontinence, sexual dysfunction and enlarged prostate. So you need not suffer in silence or be forced to live your life differently.

What you should know about sexual dysfunction

ED (erectile dysfunction) can mean the inability to achieve or maintain an erection. According to the National Institutes of Health, an estimated 15 million to 30 million men in the United States experience chronic ED. ED is treatable and not an inevitable result of aging. Men also suffer from decreased libido (desire) and premature ejaculation – conditions which, like ED, are not likely to improve without treatment. That’s where our Men’s Sexual Health Clinic can help. Our physicians use the latest, most effective treatments to help optimize your sexual health. It’s the only service of its kind in Northwest Ohio. For more information on Erectile Dysfunction, please visit the National Institutes of Health at www.nih.gov.

What you should know about vasectomy and reversal.

Approximately 500,000 men request vasectomies each year. No other group in Northwest Ohio has performed more vasectomies. Should you change your mind, we are also the area’s leader in reversals.

What you should know about male infertility.

Approximately 15% of couples will not achieve a pregnancy in the first year of trying. In about half of these cases, male infertility is a contributing factor. About 2 million cases of male infertility are diagnosed annually in the US, or one in 136 men. At our Male Infertility Clinic, one of our physicians is the leading expert in the area of male infertility, having completed fellowship training in andrology and male fertility. For more information on male infertility, please visit the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) at www.asrm.org and The National Infertility Association at www.resolve.org.

What you should know about your prostate and BPH.

Fortunately, most prostate diseases are noncancerous. They can be uncomfortable and inconvenient but are not life-threatening. The two main benign prostate diseases are prostatitis and benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), or an enlarged prostate. These are also among the most common male urologic problems. Both can be treated effectively and improved. Among the many treatment options are oral medications, minimally invasive procedures and new surgical techniques.

What you should know about your bladder.

Aging does not automatically cause bladder control problems, urinary incontinence or bladder shrinkage. Getting up to urinate two or more times during the night may not be normal. If you have this problem, don’t just live with it. Get help. The cause of your condition is quite treatable.

Incontinence, like erectile dysfunction, can be a troubling side effect after prostate cancer treatment. There are a variety of treatments, ranging from conservative to surgical, which we can offer. One of our physicians has completed a fellowship in urethral reconstruction and management of male incontinence and can discuss with you how to improve your quality of life with regard to urinary leakage. For more information on incontinence, please visit the National Association For Continence at www.nafc.org.
