Dr. Hettiarachchi has appeared on Charlotte Today, and this week he discussed some of the issues and available solutions that men can experience with their sexual health.
One very common problem that men face is erectile dysfunction. Many men develop ED as they age. When erectile dysfunction occurs, blood flow decreases to penis and makes getting or keeping an erection difficult. ED affects approximately 5% of 40 year old men, but in the decades after that, it can affect up to 50% of men. ED not only impacts mens’ ability to participate in physical intimacy, but also has emotional impact on relationships, confidence, and anxiety. Fortunately, the Charlotte Center for Pelvic Health offers effective options for treatment that don’t require surgery.
The GAINSWave treatment, also known as Acoustic Pulse Therapy, is designed to treat men experiencing erectile dysfunction. The acoustic waves break up calcium deposits and helps with blood vessel reconstruction within the penis to help naturally increase erections. The treatment is not painful, and only requires 6-8 sessions of 20 minutes each. Once blood flow improves and your erections come back consistently, you will no longer need to take medications.
After experiencing treatment at the Charlotte Center for Pelvic Health, one patient said, “I sought out a urologist for the GainsWave treatment. Dr. H was very thorough with his evaluation and recommendations. The procedures were easy and it has helped me get back on track.”
Another treatment for men offered at our office involves Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP). The process is somewhat similar to those used in the NFL for things like meniscus injuries. The injection is used to help your body recover from injuries naturally, and at our office it is used to repair blood flow and any injuries in the penis.
