According to Massachusette Male Aging Study, about 52% men aged from 40 to 70
years suffer from erectile dysfunction out of which 17% is mild, 25% moderate and 10%
complete.
“Erectile dysfunction should not be neglected as it shares the same risk factors of
cardiovascular diseases. To deal with the problem, there are modern treatments,
including Intracavernous Injection, Vacuum Erection Devices, Penile prostheses
(implant). Medical support can focus on Hormonal treatment like Testosterone
replacement and Psychosexual counselling. Apollo can also help patients with
Medicated Urethral System for Erection,” Said Dr Atanu Jana, consultant urologist,

Major causes of erectile dysfunction are Psychogenic, Vasculogenic, (Cardiovascular
disease, Hypertension, Diabetes mellitus and Major pelvic surgery or radiotherapy),

“Erectile dysfunction is a rising malady in this modern era of stress. It is affecting
younger and younger population and is standing out like a major health hazard. It is
also an indicator of serious vascular disease, which might be the harbinger of
cardiovascular disease. We need to take more cognizance of this both for pleasurable
sexual function as well as detection of serious health maladies,” said Dr. Amit Ghose,
senior consultant urologist, AGH.
To address penile deformity Apollo has also launched surgeries, including penile
implants, correction of varicocele, correction of obstruction to the vas difference and
