CONTRIBUTED CONTENT — Few men want to talk about sexual problems, but erectile dysfunction – and the impact it has on physical and emotional health – is very real.
Many of the patients seeking treatment for erectile dysfunction at Prolong Medical Center in St. George are dealing with unsatisfied partners, relationship friction and lack of confidence as a result of diminished sexual performance.
“People think it’s just about the bedroom, but if you’re struggling with ED, you know it’s far more,” clinic manager Neal Nowland said.
Defined as repeated difficulty achieving or sustaining an erection, erectile dysfunction is one of the most common health issues affecting older men today. Some studies suggests that between 50% and 70% of men ages 50 to 70 experience mild to moderate impotence. It’s increasingly prevalent in those with chronic conditions such as cardiovascular disease or diabetes.
Erectile dysfunction makes intercourse difficult, which can lower sex drive and desire, increase feelings of anxiety and depression and negatively affect a man’s relationship with his partner.
For many men, pills alone aren’t the answer. Prolong Medical Center offers a multifaceted approach to sexual health by providing cutting-edge procedures that treat the root cause of the condition, not just the symptoms. They have nearly every available treatment option aside from surgical penile implants.
“We’re dedicated to using the least invasive treatments with the fewest side effects first,” Nowland said.
Southern Utah patients are experiencing lasting results with acoustic wave therapy, a nonsurgical and noninvasive solution that harnesses the power of the body’s natural healing agents. It targets erectile dysfunction on a cellular level, helping facilitate spontaneous erections whenever the time is right.
Most cases of erectile dysfunction are attributed to diminished blood flow caused by plaque buildup in penile arteries and reduced capacity of existing blood vessels. Acoustic wave therapy breaks apart plaque buildup and scar tissue to restore blood flow along with stimulating vascular, stem cell and nitric oxide generation in the treated area.
Prolong Medical Center boasts an 85% success rate in treating erectile dysfunction with acoustic wave therapy, Nowland said, adding that the clinic defines “success” as the ability to achieve and maintain an erection. Six or more treatments are typically recommended, but some patients experience improvement after just a few visits.
Recognizing that erectile dysfunction is a highly sensitive issue for many men, Prolong Medical Center provides a discreet and personalized experience that Nowland said patients can’t find anywhere else in Southern Utah. The clinic is locally owned and operated by people who truly care about the health needs of the community.
Prolong Medical Center is committed to helping every patient feel better and achieve a higher quality of life through cutting-edge therapies. Before starting any treatment plan, a medical provider will thoroughly review the patient’s medical history and preexisting health conditions to create a program that fits their unique needs.
The clinic earned a gold ribbon in men’s health during the 2021 Best of Southern Utah contest, which Nowland said speaks to the patient experience they strive to create.
“We customize treatment plans to ensure the best outcome,” he added. “We take every individual into consideration.”
Solving the problem of erectile dysfunction requires consistency and patience. If you’ve tried other remedies and clinics without lasting success, acoustic wave therapy at Prolong Medical Center may be the key to restoring sexual confidence and fulfilling intimacy.
“Your case is not hopeless,” Nowland said. “This can change your life.”
