Advanced Treatments for Male Sexual Dysfunction and Enlarged Prostate
For men, loss of sexual desire or the inability to perform sexually may have more than physical effects; it can impact self-esteem, emotional health and intimate relationships. Moreover, male sexual dysfunction is often a sign of a more serious underlying condition, such as high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease or diabetes. That’s why it’s important to seek help from a team of specialists who look beyond symptoms to identify and treat the core cause of the problem.
Our doctors take time to listen to you and perform a thorough medical evaluation. We offer sophisticated testing, as needed, as well as access to a full spectrum of treatment options, including corrective surgeries. As part of an academic medical practice, our team can connect you to experts in other specialties, such as cardiology or vascular surgery, if a larger health issue is suspected.

Low testosterone can occur with age or obesity. It is sometimes a side effect of medication or a symptom of disease, such as anemia or diabetes.

SLUCare endocrinologist Dr. Sandeep Dhindsa will help you find the right treatment for your needs and lifestyle.
While some men are able to delay ejaculation through various methods at home, SLUCare Men’s Health offers medical options for treating premature ejaculation, a common sexual problem.
