Definitive Treatment for Erectile Dysfunction @Universal – Dr. Osama Al Harastani, Specialist - Urology
A middle-aged gentleman with long history of diabetes had developed erectile dysfunction. He was seen at various outside facilities and failed to respond to conservative treatment with oral medications and Caverject injection.
He presented to Universal Hospital for definitive management of his erectile dysfunction. It was decided that he would best benefit with implantation of a 3-piece inflatable penile prosthesis.
The patient underwent successful placement of an inflatable penile prosthesis by Dr. Osama Al Harastani in September 2017.
After a brief postoperative recovery period, this gentleman has reported that he is having the desired results from the implant and is very happy with the care he has received.
Millions of men have erection problems. Most men have trouble getting an erection at some point in their life. It can happen for all sorts of reasons. The most common cause of erection problems is poor blood flow to the penis due to chronic diabetes. Other illnesses, physical injuries, or problems with hormones can all cause erection problems too. Some medicines can also cause erection problems as a side effect. Other things that can play a part in erection problems are long-term excess alcohol intake and smoking. Emotions including stress, unhappiness, and depression can all cause erection problems.
Men who have erection problems often do not like to ask for help. But there are at least two good reasons for seeing a doctor. First, there are various treatments options that can help. Second, erection problems can be an early warning of serious health problems, such as diabetes and heart disease. The doctor may suggest tests to check for other health problems, just to be safe.
Various conservative treatments including drug treatments, injections, psychosexual therapy intraurethral suppositories, vacuum pumps, etc., are known to help with erectile dysfunction. Patients who fail conservative measures could benefit with surgery and insertion of penile prosthesis.
At Universal Hospital, Department of Urology, Dr. Osama Al Harastani, offers his surgical expertise in penile prosthesis insertion for the management of erectile dysfunction. He has had extensive training for the same from Paris, France.
