Erectile Dysfunction Q & A

What is erectile dysfunction?

Erectile dysfunction (ED) means difficulty getting or maintaining an erection, leading to unsatisfying sexual experiences. Many men experience erectile problems at times in their lives, but ED refers to long-term problems.

What causes erectile dysfunction?

Blood flow problems cause more than 80% of erectile dysfunction. Starting at about 20 years of age, a man stops creating new blood vessels in his penis. Fewer blood vessels lead to less blood flow, which is why many men notice that their erections aren’t as strong as when they were young.

Many men also develop atherosclerosis at some point in their lives, often in their 30s. Atherosclerosis means plaque (a mix of cholesterol and other fatty substances) builds up along the blood vessels’ inner walls. This limits blood flow to the penis and can lead to problems achieving and maintaining an erection.

While vascular problems are the most common cause of erectile dysfunction, many other things can contribute. These include anxiety, a low testosterone level, relationship difficulties, nerve damage, and some medications.

At Kane Health, Dr. Threatt completes a comprehensive medical evaluation to determine all the contributing factors that could be undermining your sexual health and wellness. He then creates a personalized treatment plan for you.

How is erectile dysfunction treated?

Erectile dysfunction treatment at Kane Health often starts with GAINSwave therapy, an innovative noninvasive therapy that addresses vascular problems leading to erectile dysfunction.

GAINSwave therapy uses low-intensity, high-frequency sound waves to boost circulation to your penis while breaking up plaque and stimulating new blood vessel growth. More than 100 clinical studies have shown an effectiveness rating of better than 75%, and benefits can last as long as two years.

GAINSwave therapy is also remarkably effective in treating Peyronie’s disease, where scar tissue causes penile curvature. So it’s a central part of Peyronie’s treatment at Kane Health.

In addition to GAINSwave therapy, Kane Health offers personalized microdosed medications, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (testosterone replacement), vacuum constriction devices (penis pumps) for home use, and other innovations to help you enjoy the vitality and sexual prowess you deserve.
