Erectile Dysfunction Treatments

Occasionally, simply treating the underlying condition can be the only treatment required for erectile dysfunction. The urologists at Northwestern Medicine also have access to the latest medications and treatments for erectile dysfunction. In addition, the program has been a national leader in drug development for topical therapy as well as new oral therapies.

When medications do not work, your physician might suggestion:

  • Erectile aids: Some patients have success with vacuum pumps and other devices.
  • Surgery
  • A penile implant: Either malleable (adjustable) or inflatable implants may be a solution for your erectile dysfunction.

Your physician can also help you identify and treat erectile dysfunction’s underlying causes to ensure that any chronic or potentially threatening conditions are addressed.
