Many men struggle with sexual health issues that can often lead to low self-esteem, stress and depression. The skilled urologists at Urology Associates understand these health issues and have the expertise to treat sexual challenges such as erectile dysfunction, low testosterone and Peyronie’s disease. We’ve helped thousands of men across the southeast restore physical intimacy and, most importantly, their confidence.
Erectile Dysfunction (ED) is best defined as the inability to attain or maintain an erection for sexual intercourse. ED typically occurs when blood flow to the penis is obstructed due to hardening and narrowing blood vessels.
Erectile dysfunction is more common than you might think — around 50% of men in their 50s have mild to moderate symptoms. One of the primary objectives of our Men’s Health program is to break down the communication barriers that prevent our patients from discussing sensitive subjects like ED with their urologist.

In our Men’s Health program, a urologist works with you to implement a treatment plan that restores hormone health.

In addition, your doctor may recommend dietary adjustments and daily exercise to help regulate natural hormone production.
Testosterone therapy requires frequent checkups to monitor your hormone levels and symptoms to ensure your treatment is effective. Your doctor can adjust your therapy as needed to optimize your health.
Peyronie’s disease is a noncancerous condition resulting from fibrous scar tissue that develops on the penis and causes curved, painful erections. This condition rarely goes away on its own. In most men, the condition will remain as-is or continue to develop and cause more severe pain and symptoms.
Treatment varies according to how Peyronie’s disease affects your body and life. The three general approaches are:
There’s no reason to live with painful erections, erectile difficulties and other problems of Peyronie’s disease.
