Penile Injection Therapy
Erectile dysfunction can be common amongst men, however, it is rarely discussed or talked about in the open. Men seem hesitant to bring up the subject for fear of embarrassment or rejection. But, it is good to know that erectile dysfunction can be treated successfully, and more often than not, it is the cause of a deeper emotional or psychological issue. Although, there may be instances that damage to the penis will also result in erectile dysfunction.Penile injection therapy is an effective treatment for men who suffer from severe erectile dysfunction. A fine short needle is used, the procedure itself causes minimal pain. The medication improves the blood flow and the blood vessels in the penis will widen. This leads to an erection which can last for up to 60 minutes. We recommend that patients who are considering penile injection therapy to visit our clinic. We will decide if you are a viable candidate for this treatment. If you are allergic to this medication, you should avoid using it. Additionally, this drug should not be combined with blood thinners. Dr. Shawket Alkhayal will determine the diagnosis and the required amount of medication. We advise our patients not to receive more than 12 injections per year, and the treatment must be evenly paced out.
