What is Post-Prostatectomy Erectile Dysfunction and Penile Rehabilitation?

After pelvic surgery, especially for prostate and bladder cancers, men are at risk for losing some degree of erectile function. The Men’s Health Center offers cancer survivors comprehensive expertise with evidence-based treatment options to preserve sexual function as best as possible.

Symptoms and Diagnosis of Post-Prostatectomy Erectile Dysfunction and Penile Rehabilitation

In many cases, doctors need only a physical exam and medical history to diagnose erectile dysfunction, but they sometimes can use other tests. Other diagnostic methods include blood and urine tests, ultrasounds, and psychological exams.

Post-Prostatectomy Erectile Dysfunction and Penile Rehabilitation Treatments and Surgery

Research suggests that men participating in a penile rehabilitation program experience return of intimacy more often than men who do not seek treatment. We offer pre-surgical counseling and post-surgical guidance with treatment options to give men the best chance of restoring intimacy and sexual function with their partners.
