Erectile dysfunction care at Mayo Clinic
Mayo Clinic specialists provide personalized and comprehensive care to those with erectile dysfunction.
Your Mayo Clinic care team
Erectile dysfunction has many possible causes. At Mayo Clinic, specialists from endocrinology, cardiovascular medicine, neurology, urology, and psychiatry and psychology services work together as a multidisciplinary team to evaluate and treat each individual. This means that you're not getting just one opinion — you benefit from the knowledge and experience of each specialist.
Advanced diagnosis and treatment
Mayo Clinic's approach to men's sexual health is to comprehensively screen for cardiovascular diseases and endocrine conditions, such as low testosterone, that might cause erectile dysfunction. Mayo Clinic offers a full range of options for noninvasive testing of erectile dysfunction, including color Doppler ultrasound of penile blood flow.
Erection pills, such as Viagra, Levitra, Cialis and Stendra, are an effective treatment for the majority of men with erectile dysfunction. But a large number of men — including those who have diabetes or who have had pelvic surgery or radiation for prostate, bladder or colorectal cancer — have low response rates to erection pills.
Mayo offers many options for these men, including intraurethral therapy, penile injection therapies, vacuum erection devices and surgery.
Close collaboration enables your Mayo Clinic team to have your test results available quickly and to coordinate scheduling your appointments. Evaluation and treatment that might take months elsewhere can typically be done in only a matter of days at Mayo Clinic.
