For most men, erectile dysfunction is a natural – though unfortunate – side effect of aging. Oftentimes, however, there are additional factors contributing to a decline in sexual function that can be avoided. Board-certified general surgeon Dr. Eric G. LeVeen and the expert team at Acoustic Therapy Center in Palo Alto, CA understand the complex nature of men’s sexual health problems and are committed to providing personalized treatment plans that meet each patient’s unique needs. Learn more about contributory conditions that may be impacting your sexual function and what options you have for treatment.

What is erectile dysfunction?

Erectile dysfunction (ED) is characterized by the inability to achieve or maintain an erection that is adequate for sexual activity. For some men, this can mean problems with the rigidity of erections, while other patients struggle with obtaining erections on a spontaneous and/or reliable basis. In either case, ED can take a toll on a man’s self-confidence, relationship, and overall well-being.

What causes ED?

There are a number of potential causes of erectile dysfunction, many of which may be working simultaneously. Aside from situational causes of ED – such as extreme stress or excessive alcohol intake – many men’s health conditions, medications, and underlying risk factors are known as contributory conditions for erectile dysfunction. These may include:

  • Heart disease
  • Vascular disease
  • Diabetes
  • Obesity
  • Elevated cholesterol
  • Hypertension
  • Low testosterone/hormone imbalance
  • Andropause
  • Previous surgery and/or therapy for enlarged prostate
  • Certain medications

Furthermore, many of the medications and therapies used to treat these conditions can actually cause and/or exacerbate erectile dysfunction. To address both of these issues, Dr. LeVeen helps patients understand what contributory conditions and medications may be causing their ED, determines whether any alternative medications can be substituted, and provides advanced ED treatment options, including acoustic wave therapy, in Palo Alto, CA.

Is there a natural treatment for erectile dysfunction?

Traditionally, erectile dysfunction treatments include oral medication, surgery, and mechanical devices that are often inconvenient, expensive, and even risky. For men seeking a more natural alternative to treat ED, acoustic wave therapy may be a fitting option. This completely noninvasive treatment involves the use of specialized sound waves to stimulate blood flow to the penis and generate the growth of new, healthy blood vessels. This convenient and painless ED solution can dramatically improve a man’s sexual health by supporting firmer erections, increased sexual stimulation, stronger orgasms, and more.
