What is erectile dysfunction (ED)?
The term “erectile dysfunction” (ED) generally refers to any interruption of the physiological processes that allow a man to get—and maintain—an erection.
An erection happens when brain and nerve impulses respond to mental or sensory stimulation. Those organs act like switches to send a “turned-on” signal to the penis, which is full of fine and complex muscles called the corpora cavernosa. That “turned-on” signal then causes spongy muscle tissue inside the penis to relax and arteries to ramp up their blood flow to the spongy tissue. So, as blood flow increases, the penis lengthens and expands, and the veins that would ordinarily allow blood to drain back into the body close off so the blood has no choice but to stay inside the penis. Once the penis reaches its maximal size, the strong spongy tissue will hold its size and shape quite well, even as more blood flows into the penis. Like a bike pump, the penis will get bigger until it reaches it maximal size.

Are there nonsurgical treatments for ED?
Yes, there are several nonsurgical options for the treatment of erectile dysfunction. ED is typically an easily-treatable problem, and often changes in lifestyle are an effective method. Taking steps to end chronic drinking, quit smoking, or to lose weight can help. Some medications can also cause ED, so it is important to talk to your doctor.
Beyond lifestyle changes, patients have a number of choices. Oral medications like Viagra have high rates of success, and even newer alternatives to Viagra are available through Dr. Spitz’s office.
Injection therapy, in which medication is injected directly into the penis, is unique in that the dosage is customized to the patient’s needs. This procedure is also safe for men with different kinds of physical conditions or men for whom oral medications aren’t effective. Men can even learn to inject themselves to achieve erections.
Another option for treatment is a vacuum device. An external pump is placed briefly over the penis to create a vacuum that draws blood into the penis. A constriction ring is then placed at the base of the penis to keep blood trapped there to maintain an erection. The ring can be kept in place for up to 30 minutes.
What is a penile implant?
For men who don’t have much success with other treatments for erectile dysfunction, a penile implant may be the best option for sufficient sexual intercourse. Implants, or penile prostheses, are inflatable or malleable rods that are inserted into the corpora cavernosa, the complex muscles inside the penis. The patient can use a small pump, inserted into the scrotum, to fill the implant with water from a reservoir located in the pelvis until the penis is erect. The pump also allows water to transfer back out of the penis so it can become flaccid again.
These implants are safe and very reliable. They offer a natural-looking, natural-feeling erection that the patient can control whenever he’d like. Most men say the implants are unnoticeable and that they’re very happy with them. The procedure has more than a 90-percent satisfaction rate among patients, and an even higher rate among their partners!
As a CEO of a national healthcare company, I work with many physicians nationwide. I can sincerely say that Dr. Spitz is an outstanding physician and person on multiple levels. Clinically, he is no doubt a leader in the field of urology.
More recently, it has come to my attention that Dr. Spitz is writing a book about sexual health issues and society, combining clinical insight as well as practical observations for society, addressing many of the sexual concerns people have. Very much looking forward to reading this because of his clinical expertise, keen insight on sexual and social issues, and incredible sense of humor, a combination that is rare.
Dr. Spitz is brilliant clinically and has a sense of humor to match. This is why I look forward to learning more from him through his television and media appearances as well as his upcoming written publications.Fahim Hashim
