How common is ED?
One in five men suffers from some degree of erectile dysfunction.
Does prostate cancer lead to ED?
Erectile dysfunction and prostate cancer are both common as men age. Though they are generally unrelated, some treatment options for prostate cancer may contribute to erectile dysfunction.
Is ED a natural part of aging?
ED can become more common with age; however it’s not considered a natural part of aging. Some men will avoid ED all together.
Does insurance cover the cost of treatment?
Treatment for ED is covered by most insurance policies, however there are some that do not. It’s important for patients to check their individual policy coverage or talk to a representative from our billing department who can help clarify the coverage.
Is a consult necessary?
Is a vasectomy reversible?
Although vasectomy is considered to be permanent sterilization, it can be successfully reversed.
Does insurance cover male sterilization?
While vasectomy is covered by most insurance policies, patients should check their individual policy coverage to confirm if it is in fact covered.
Is a vasectomy painful?
Most men feel little, if any, pain with a vasectomy. Typically Tylenol or Advil afterwards is sufficient
How long is recovery?
There is very little recovery with vasectomy. Most who have the procedure can go back to work within a day or two.
Am I immediately sterile and how do I know?
No, it takes about 3 months to become completely sterile. After roughly 8 to 10 weeks, a sample will need to be provided in order for your physician to confirm sterilization.
What are the signs of low testosterone in men?
There are both sexual and non-sexual symptoms of Low T. Sexual symptoms include: poor erectile function, low libido (sexual desire) and weaker/fewer erections. Non-sexual symptoms include: increased body fat, decreased energy, reduced muscle mass and depression.
How is Low T diagnosed?
