Vasectomy is the most popular form of permanent birth control for men, performed through a tiny puncture site in the wall of the scrotal sac. About 500,000 men in the US choose vasectomy every year.

Erectile Dysfunction

Several erectile dysfunction treatment options are available. Which ED treatment option you and your doctor choose will depend on its cause and severity. However, the following treatments are available.

Elevated PSA

PSA, or prostate specific antigen, is a protein secreted by normal prostate tissue glands, primarily into the ejaculate fluid, with a small amount measured in the blood. Any inflammatory process, acute injury, benign enlargement, or prostate cancer may elevate the PSA.

Enlarged Prostate (BPH)

Transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) is the most common form of BPH surgery. After administering anesthesia, the prostate is shaved from inside the urethra using a scope that has an electric loop at its end.

Peyronie's Disease

If symptoms of Peyronie’s disease are severe or worsen over time, a doctor may recommend medications or surgery. A number of oral medications are available to treat the disease, but surgery may be the most effective treatment.


Varicocele treatment may not be necessary. However, in some cases, if a varicocele causes pain, testicular atrophy or infertility, varicocele repair may be a necessity.

Low Testosterone

Testosterone is often considered one of the most important male hormones. It is known to decline with age. Testosterone replacement therapy is the most common method to treat low testosterone.

Male Factor Infertility

Up to 15% of couples will report infertility. Of the 15%, up to 30-40% of infertile couples have a contributing male factor, and identification and medical treatment of these men may lead to better reproductive outcomes.
