Our Men’s Health Services Include:
Low Testosterone State (hypogonadism)
Male testosterone levels decrease with age, typically starting around age 30. This is often a gradual decline which typically manifests as decreases in libido (interest in sex), erectile function, energy, mood, muscle strength, and general sense of well being. Many men with hypogonadism may notice an increase in fatty deposits, especially around the midsection. Studies also suggest that restoring testosterone levels in men with hypogonadism may result not only in resolution of the above noted symptoms, but in other health benefits, such as increased bone mineral density, and protection against cardiovascular disease.
Testosterone replacement has proven to be a safe, easy, and effective treatment for hypogonadism. Dr. McCormack works with each client to determine the best method of testosterone replacement based on lifestyle and medication efficacy.
Erectile Dysfunction (ED)/”Impotence”
This condition affects millions of American men and increases in incidence with age. Perhaps greater than 50% of men over the age of 50 experience some form of ED. Erectile dysfunction may be defined by a wide array of complaints, such as inability to attain or maintain an erection satisfactory for sexual intercourse. Premature ejaculation is another associated complaint of some men. All forms of ED, regardless of cause, are treatable. Some common treatments are listed below.
- Oral medicines
- Urethral Suppositories
- Vacuum Erection Device (VED)
- Penile Injection Therapy
- Penile Prosthesis
Circumcision (“cosmetic circumcision”)
Adult circumcision (surgical removal of excess foreskin of the penis) is performed for a variety of reasons, and it should always be performed with aesthetic considerations in mind. While this procedure is often performed for scarring or inflammation of the foreskin, many men choose circumcision for more personal reasons. Dr. McCormack has extensive experience in this procedure, and he is attentive to his patients’ particular requests and expectations.
