Low Testosterone

Low testosterone, otherwise known as Low T, Testosterone Deficiency or Hypogonadism, is common in men of all ages and can result in fatigue, decreased sex drive, erectile dysfunction, decreased strength, and irritability. We offer comprehensive testing for those concerned about low testosterone, as well as a variety of treatment options to restore male hormones, including:

  • Testosterone supplementation (topical and injections)
  • Selective estrogen receptor modulators
  • Aromatase inhibitors
  • Gonadotropins

Peyronie’s Disease (PD)

Curvature or indentation of the penis, otherwise known as Peyronie’s Disease or PD, occurs due to the formation of scar tissue in the penile shaft. The curvature can affect one’s ability to engage in sexual activity and/or get and keep an erection. The cause of penile curvature is unclear, but thought to be due to injury to the penis (from trauma, sexual activity, etc.). We offer a variety of treatment options to repair your penile curvature, including:

  • Xiaflex® injections
  • Penile plication
  • Plaque incision/excision with grafting
  • Penile implant placement with penile curvature repair
