Erectile Dysfunction Q & A

What is erectile dysfunction?

Erectile dysfunction, or ED, is a men’s health condition associated with the inability to get or keep an erection strong enough to have satisfactory sexual intercourse. You may also experience decreases in sexual desire if you have ED. 

Regenerative treatments are available to enhance performance or treat dysfunction. If you would like to improve your performance, or if you suffer from ED which negatively impacts your quality of life and relationships, simple solutions are within reach at Regenerative Solutions of NJ.

What causes erectile dysfunction?

Erectile dysfunction is common with increasing age, but it can happen to anybody. About 70% of ED cases result from diminished blood flow due to older age or an underlying medical condition. Common risk factors include:

  • Older age
  • Diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol
  • Heart disease or other chronic conditions
  • Tobacco, drug, or alcohol use
  • Stress or depression
  • Poor overall circulation
  • Being overweight or obese
  • Sleep disorders
  • Low testosterone

To help determine the cause of ED, Dr. Spiel at Regenerative Solutions of NJ reviews your symptoms and medical history, performs a physical exam, and might use blood, urine, or imaging tests to establish an appropriate treatment.

How is erectile dysfunction treated?

Dr. Spiel reviews your ED treatment options to help you decide which one best matches your needs. Some options include:

Oral medications

Taking oral medications increases penile blood flow and helps you achieve and maintain an erection.

Regenerative Injections

Dr. Spiel offers injections of growth factors from platelet-rich plasma (PRP) derived from your blood, often times involving exosomes, to enhance outcome. This is sometimes combined with shock wave treatment, a non-invasive therapy promoting blood flow and growth factors to the area.

Dr. Spiel numbs the area to enhance comfort and injects your penis with the regenerative shot to improve ED naturally without medicine or surgery.

Testosterone replacement

If erectile dysfunction is the result of low testosterone, Dr. Spiel might recommend testosterone replacement therapy to correct the problem.

Acoustic wave therapy

Acoustic wave therapy or shockwave treatment improves blood flow to the penis, a critical component of erections.

Lifestyle changes

Making lifestyle changes may boost your chances of getting and keeping erections. Examples include losing weight if you’re overweight, not smoking, getting regular exercise, and seeking treatment for depression or anxiety if you suffer from it.
