Specializing in Men’s Health, we address urological issues men face, especially as they age. Some of the commonly managed diagnoses include:
- As men get older, there is naturally a slow decrease in testosterone levels, but even younger men can have problems with low testosterone due to certain medical conditions. Some of these symptoms can include:
- Changes in sexual function: such as erectile dysfunction or low sex drive
- Chronic fatigue
- Physical changes: such as difficulty losing weight, loss of muscle mass, decreased bone density
- Emotional changes: you may feel sad or depressed, or have trouble concentrating or remembering things
We offer the latest in testosterone replacement therapy options to help improve these symptoms that can result from low testosterone. We also perform time release Testopel implants in the office, which can be a more efficient testosterone delivery solution for some men.
- UF Health Urology specializes in the treatment of erectile dysfunction in men. Depending on the cause of the erectile function, as well as any underlying medical conditions, several treatment options are available such as the vacuum erection device, oral medications, urethral suppositories, penile injection therapy, as well as surgical correction of erectile dysfunction through the implantation of a penile prosthesis.
- Peyronie’s disease (penile curvature) is a very common diagnosis in men. Both medical and surgical treatment options are available to treat this problem.
- Medical Options
- Xiaflex (collagenase clostridium histolyticum) can be injected into the scar in the penis to decrease the amount of curvature present. This is a minimally invasive option that may help many men avoid surgery to decrease the severity of their penile curvature.
- Surgical Options
- Penile plication involves the placement of permanent sutures under the skin of the penis to “pull” the penis back into a straight position.
- Plaque (scar) excision and grafting involves the cutting and/or removal of some scar with replacement of the resulting defect by graft tissue to straighten the penis.
- No scalpel vasectomy
- For men who desire to prevent unwanted pregnancies, the minimally invasive no-scalpel vasectomy is an very safe and excellent option. We perform this technique under local anesthesia in the office setting. The procedure typically takes approximately 15 to 20 minutes. It will take approximately 90 days for the surgical site to heal completely before a confirmatory semen analysis is done to ensure that no live sperm are present any longer. We are at high-volume vasectomy center, performing well over 200 vasectomies per year.
