- Kidney failure

Some medications, whether blood pressure medicine or antidepressants, can affect normal sexual functioning.
Diagnosing erectile and sexual dysfunction in men
Diagnosing sexual dysfunction can occur without testing with a physical exam with Dr. Singh. If you have symptoms of sexual or erectile dysfunction, it’s important to schedule an appointment at HEALOR™ in Las Vegas, NV. We can pinpoint the cause of your ED, so you can resolve your dysfunction quickly. We will discuss your health and sexual history at this visit. From this information, we may recommend diagnostic tests that will help us rule out different medical conditions, which could be contributing to or causing your erectile or sexual dysfunction.
Erectile dysfunction treatment
Most erectile dysfunction can be treated by determining the physical or psychological problem causing it. Once we determine the cause, Dr. Singh can treat that medical condition, which usually will resolve the sexual dysfunction.
Some treatment options we offer at our Las Vegas, NV, office include:
- Medication: We use medications, such as Viagra®, Cialis®, Stendra®, or Levitra®, to help improve sexual function and increase blood flow to the penis.
- PRP Therapy: This is used to stimulate collagen in the penile tissue to help improve blood flow. We take some blood from the patient and put it in a centrifuge, which separates the growth factors and platelet-rich plasma in the blood. It is made into serum and placed into a syringe, and injected into the penis.
- Shockwave therapy: This uses sound wave energy to address vascular causes of ED. During treatment, we will use a tissue over the penile tissue to stimulate blood vessels and to help enhance flow. This can be done once or several times for optimal results.
