Men's Health Conditions

The physicians at our Men’s Health program know that men face a unique set of health issues and specialize in the treatment of conditions such as enlarged prostate, erectile dysfunction, male factor infertility, vasectomy and reversal services, varicoceles, elevated PSA levels, and Peyronie’s disease. Please use the links below to find more information on some of the male health conditions we treat:

Erectile Dysfunction

Erectile dysfunction (ED) refers to a man's inability to obtain and maintain an adequate erection for sexual activity. Most men occasionally experience ED, which is normal. However, ED is more common in older men but can affect men at any age.

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

Enlarged prostate, or benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), is the noncancerous enlargement of the prostate gland surrounding the urethral passage between the bladder and penis. BPH or enlarged prostate is common in men over the age of 50, but usually does not cause any major problems.

Peyronie's Disease

Peyronie’s Disease occurs when there is abnormal scar tissue formation in the “covering layer” of the penis (the tunica albuginea). This scar tissue deposition causes contraction of the penile tissue and may cause penile curvature.


Varicoceles are an abnormal dilation of the veins to the testes. Up to 15% of men will have a varicocele, but not all men will have problems from their varicoceles. However, when they cause problems, varicoceles can cause testicular pain, male factor infertility, and low testosterone.

Low Testosterone

Testosterone is often considered one of the most important male hormones. It is known to decline with age. Symptoms of low energy, low libido, poor erections, decreased muscle mass and forgetfulness can be suggestive of 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.
