Men's Health Conditions We Treat

The Men’s Health Center is dedicated to male health and to the evaluation and treatment of conditions affecting men’s sexual and reproductive health. Our clinical programs specialize in:

  • Delayed or absent ejaculation: The inability of a man to achieve climax within a reasonable amount of time.
  • Erectile dysfunction: The inability to achieve or maintain an erection adequate for sexual intercourse.
  • Infertility: Male fertility problems can stem from hormone imbalances, anatomic abnormalities, genetic factors, and medical factors.
  • Low testosterone: A reduction in the amount of testosterone being produced by the body.
  • Peyronie’s disease: An inflammatory condition where scar tissue, or plaque, forms inside of the penis, causing a curved erection that can prevent normal erectile function, which, in turn, interferes with the ability to penetrate during intercourse.
  • 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 after their life-saving cancer procedures.
  • Post-prostatectomy urinary incontinence: After pelvic surgery, especially for prostate and bladder cancers, men are at risk for losing some degree of erectile function after their life-saving cancer procedures.
  • Premature ejaculation: When ejaculation happens in response to minimal stimulation just before or shortly after penetration.
