Romance Restoration

Erectile dysfunction (ED) is a frustrating topic that can divide couples with frustration and isolation.  Unfortuantley, many partners of men with ED unfairly blame themselves as part of the problem.  But most cases of ED are due to underlying organic causes such as diabetes, vascular disease or prior surgery and have nothing to do with the man's partner.  Treating these underlying conditions are critical to maintaining a man's health, but the resultant symptoms of ED often remain.  There is a lot of buzz accross consumer marketing and media regarding different treatment options for ED.  It is critical to have the man's partner involved in finding the treatment option that makes both the partner and the patient happy.  My job is to help patients navigate this process and understand all available treatment options, in particular, the penile implant.  Many patients have never heard about the implant and when other medical treatments fail, couples just give up.  Of all the available treatment options for ED, the penile implant is the only option that provides a permanent cure for ED and the only option with the highest patient and partner satisfaction rates (>95%).  With Valentines Day around the corner, click the link below to learn more about this conversation by viewing my recent tv interview on KKTV K11 Connects!
