conditions and treatments

erectile Dysfunction

Erectile Dysfunction, is a condition where a man has difficulty achieving or maintaining an erection. This can be caused by physical or psychological factors or a combination of both. The good news is that there are a variety of treatment options available, including penile implant surgery, medications, penile injections, low intensity shockwave therapy and vacuum devices and rings.

penile implant surgery

A penile implant is a device that is surgically placed into a person’s penis and is designed to enable you to have an erection. Once implanted, it helps put you back in control of your body and can be used at any time, unlike other treatment options where there may be a short waiting period for them to be active. A penile implant can be an effective solution for men who are suffering from ED that has not been resolved by other available treatment options, who want to restore their erectile function.

peyronie's disease

Peyronie’s Disease is a common condition in which scar tissue forms inside the penis, causing the penis to curve or bend during an erection. This can cause pain, discomfort and difficulty during sexual intercourse. Surgery is often helpful to improve the situation.

penile curvature

It is surprisingly common for a penis to have a curve or bend when erect – this is sometimes present from birth although it becomes more noticeable/problematic throughout puberty into early adulthood. If severe enough, it can interfere with sexual activity and may be worth seeking medical advice. While penile curvature might feel like a challenging or embarrassing condition, there are effective treatment options available to improve your quality of life and sexual function. Don’t hesitate to seek help and discuss your concerns with your doctor or one of our experienced urologists at Restore Urology.

penile rehabilitation

Post Prostatectomy Penile Rehabilitation is a treatment strategy to help men who have had their prostate removed due to cancer or other conditions and are experiencing erectile dysfunction as a result. This treatment involves a combination of medication, penile injections and/or vacuum pumps to improve blood flow and prevent the development of scar tissue in the penis. It is most effective when started soon after the surgery and can help to improve sexual function and overall quality of life. Over time, many men will experience natural improvement in their erection quality following prostate surgery. In the interim, penile rehabilitation aims to maintain both the length and function of the penis whilst natural improvement in pelvic nerves occurs.

suspensory ligament repair

Suspensory Ligament Repair is a surgical procedure that can be used to treat sexual dysfunction in men. This surgery is typically recommended for men who have experienced an injury to the suspensory ligament. The procedure involves repairing the ligamentous structure that supports the base of the penis, which can become stretched or damaged due to injury. Suspensory Ligament Repair can help to restore normal penile function and improve sexual performance, especially in cases where the ligament has been significantly damaged. If you are experiencing sexual dysfunction due to a penile injury, our qualified urologists can evaluate your condition and recommend the most appropriate treatment for you.
