He may also perform non invasive sensory testing which allows him to determine if your problem stems from a nerve issue. He also performs vascular testing to evaluate the blood flow that is entering and leaving your penis. This allows him to inform you if the problem is a blood flow issue.

COREWAVE ™ Therapy

Oral Therapy for Erectile dysfunction (ED)
There are four oral medications that are FDA approved for the treatment of erectile dysfunction. These classes of medications are called phosphodiesterase inhibitors (PDE5).
Intraurethral Medication for ED
Another alternative for erectile dysfunction are medicated urethral suppositories, also known as MUSE. This is administered directly into the penile urethra through a specialized applicator system and is then absorbed directly into the penis. After using MUSE, erection can occur within ten minutes.
Vacuum Erection Device for ED
The vacuum erection device works by placing a cylinder over the penis and applying negative (vacuum) pressure. After the penis becomes engorged with blood, an erection is formed. A band is then placed at the base of the penis and the cylinder is removed to have intercourse.
How does Botox® work for Erectile Dysfunction?
The penis at default is in a contracted state, it is not until a man is stimulated where the penis becomes relaxed and erect. Botox allows the muscles in the penis to become relaxed thus increases the velocity of blood flow to erection providing a more efficient and possible sustainable erection.**.
