Tuesday, 01 Feb 2011 03:55 PM

Erectile dysfunction is defined as the inability to develop or maintain an erection of the penis. Erectile dysfunction is also called impotence. While generally affecting elderly people, erectile dysfunction can plague younger people as well. Fortunately, there are a wide variety of treatment options available for treating erectile dysfunction and unique erectile dysfunction treatment centers in the United States.
Erectile dysfunction treatment centers:
Some of the top erectile dysfunction treatment centers are the Boston Medical group erectile dysfunction center, WebMD erectile dysfunction health center, the RHD Medical center, the Urology Institute at the St. Paul Medical center, and St. Luke’s Medical center at Illinois. These are a few of the centers that offer high quality and reliable treatment for erectile dysfunction.
The Boston Medical Group erectile dysfunction center uses one of the proprietary treatment programs where a personalized treatment program is developed for the patient, and the results are generally visible in a short period of time.
The staff and the practitioners at Urology Institute at the St. Paul Medical center are continually aiming to offer urologic medical care of high quality. The various medical services that are offered by the hospital are also provided at highly cost-effective rates.
The various other treatment centers providing treatment for erectile dysfunction are also continuing to evolve. The various types of treatment for erectile dysfunction include:

Psychological treatment:
Erectile dysfunction not only makes one physically upset, but also psychologically disturbed. The female partner can also be psychologically affected. Often times, counseling is necessary for both partners. This can be essential for the successful treatment of erectile dysfunction and is conducted at various erectile dysfunction centers in the U.S.

Medical treatment:
There are a number of drugs available for the treatment of erectile dysfunction. The most commonly and successfully used drugs are phosphodiesterase 5 inhibitors. The PDE 5 inhibitors are drugs like Viagra, Sildenafil, Levitra, Vardenafil, Cialis, and Tadalafil. Other drugs that are used in the treatment of erectile dysfunction are Alprostadil, and Androskat.

Mechanical treatment for erectile dysfunction:
Mechanical devices like penile pumps are used to bring about erection in people suffering from erectile dysfunction. Penile pumps act as vacuum pumps and increase the blood supply to the penis which results in an erection.

Surgery is yet another medical option where penile prosthesis is implanted. A penile vascular surgery can also be done for the treatment of erectile dysfunction.
