What is Erectile Dysfunction?

Erectile Dysfunction (ED) is the term referring to what is popularly known as impotence (a word which, being somewhat negative for the patient, is becoming less used). It involves “the difficulty or inability, persistent or recurrent, to achieve and / or maintain an erection sufficient for sexual activity.”

How frequent is this condition?

Up to 80% of men may suffer from erectile disorder at some moment in their life. Age, diabetes, hypertension and other metabolic and vascular pathologies define the population group at high risk of developing erectile dysfunction. In Spain 20% of men between 25 and 70 years suffer from this problem.

Can it be treated?

100% recovery of erection can be guaranteed nowadays in almost all men with erectile dysfunction. The different treatments available are applied in stages and virtually 100% of cases can resume sexual relations.

A penile prosthesis is the solution to impotence in patients who do not respond to other treatments. These alternative treatments may be drugs, injections or successful treatment based on low intensity shock waves. A penile prosthesis provides the penis with sufficient rigidity to penetrate but does not restore the natural erection.

    I have read with great interest the treatment you can apply for erectile dysfunction.

    I am a 74 year old recently remarried to a 64 year old. (My previous wife died some 5 years ago from ovarian cancer).
    I am totally unable to gain an erection sufficient for penetration, and have to give my wife orgasms manually. As you will be readily aware, my wife is almost a frustrated as myself!

    I would welcome any information regarding treatment I could have to alleviate the situation.

    With thanks, Roly Beaumont

      Hi Roly, maybe in your case the best option would be the penil implant, to regain your erections in about one month.

  • Questions. 1. where in Canada can I go for ed shock treatment?
    2. how much will it cost me?

    • Clínica Urología y Andrología Andromedi Spain says:

      Hi Stanley, we are in Spain, don´t know exactly where, but it is not a rare treatment, you would be able to find some medical center offering it. About how much it cost, certainly we can´t talk, because every currency, life standars and every medical system in different countries it´s different.
