Urologist and men’s health specialist Dr. Paul Turek appears on View From the Bay (KGO TV/Channel 7 San Francisco) with advice on restoring sexual well being in your relationship. Dr. Turek offers solutions and treatments for men suffering from erectile dysfunction.
Erectile dysfunction is primarily age related and can begin in a man’s 40s. The most common causes of erectile dysfunction are related to diseases that affect blood vessels. It can be a precursor to heart disease. Situational erectile dysfunction may be due to anxiety or stress, for example in cases where sex is scheduled for infertility treatments.
Dr. Turek provides guidance on a variety of approaches to treating erectile dysfunction. Viagra and other drugs are a well known treatment, but medication is ineffective for many. There are many local therapies that produce erections, as well. Counseling is a third treatment option depending on the cause.
