Strictly speaking, ED is defined as the inability to maintain an erection that’s sufficient for sexual satisfaction. This broad term may include:
ED is the most common sexual complaint men report to their doctor and affects an estimated 30 million men in the United States. That number is likely higher, however, since men are often very hesitant to discuss this aspect of their lives.
ED most commonly occurs when blood flow to the penis becomes limited, which often results in nerve or tissue damage. Often, these changes are part of the natural aging process and its related effects on your overall health.
Problems with ED may also signal other health concerns, such as heart disease, high blood pressure, or uncontrolled diabetes. Unfortunately, even with successful treatment for these serious conditions, the tissue changes in your penis can remain and continue to interfere with your erections.
Also, it’s not uncommon to experience ED from time to time. Fatigue, stress, even a cold can temporarily affect any man’s ability to achieve and sustain an erection. Progressive or long-term problems with ED are not “normal,” however, and it’s not something you have to learn to live with.
Fortunately, many effective treatments exist for ED that are based on the regenerative medicine model of boosting your body’s own ability to heal and rebuild tissue that’s been damaged by disease or aging.
As a regenerative medicine and anti-aging specialist, Dr. Grossman relies on the science of enhancing your body’s natural tissue regeneration and repair capabilities. He may recommend one or more types of treatment for ED. It all starts with a physical examination and careful review of your medical history.
After that, Dr. Grossman may recommend platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy, which delivers a concentrated dose of growth factors and other tissue-rebuilding substances contained in your own blood supply.
GAINSWaveⓇ is another innovative therapy for ED that’s proving very successful for patients at OC Wellness. This treatment uses low-intensity acoustic waves to break up plaques within blood vessels that are limiting blood flow to the penis.
