Suffering From Erectile Dysfunction?
If you’re a man struggling with erectile dysfunction in Orlando, FL, you know how embarrassing sexual performance problems can be. However, there’s hope in knowing that you’re not alone; many men have experienced and beaten ED with the help of the right ED treatment techniques. Erectile dysfunction can be the result of medical conditions such as changing hormone levels that result in low testosterone or simply due to the aging process. No matter the cause, the health experts at Eterna M.D. can find a solution for your health issues so you can regain your self-confidence and enjoy the sex life you once had.
Common Causes Of Erectile Dysfunction
Erectile dysfunction is commonly caused by an age-related health condition such as diabetes, high cholesterol, heart disease, or prostate issues. These conditions may be serious and should be managed by your doctor to maintain your overall health. However, even when they are well under control, any of these conditions can still result in erectile dysfunction because they cause decreased blood flow or hardening of the arteries known as atherosclerosis.
Atherosclerosis or other blood vessel damage may be caused by several factors. Poor diet or diabetes may result in high sugar concentration within the blood, which damages blood vessels and nerves. Heart disease or high cholesterol may cause fat to increase or build up around arteries, resulting in calcification and insufficient blood circulation.
Finally, medications, stress, obesity, smoking, or simply the aging process can cause decreased blood flow resulting in erectile dysfunction. Some of these can be reversed with the help of your primary care doctor, but others are unavoidable. In these cases, erectile dysfunction treatment can help.
4 Erectile Dysfunction Treatment Options
We offer various treatments depending on each patient’s hormone levels and goals. A board-certified physician at our Orlando office location will go through your entire medical background and possibly refer you for some further exams. Once all the data is reviewed, you will be presented with a personalized hormone plan which could consist of medication, hormonal lotions, pellets, or any other regime the physician finds most beneficial.
Typically, hormone therapy for erectile dysfunction involves increasing testosterone levels. Testosterone levels can be lowered both by aging and health concerns such as high cholesterol, high blood pressure, or depression. Balancing a healthy level of testosterone can help a patient resolve their erectile dysfunction and feel more energized day-to-day.
Erectus Shot™ (1.0)
This ED treatment procedure uses platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to rejuvenate the penis. The PRP is injected into specific regions such as the penile head both superficially and deep below the surface. The patient is given a topical numbing agent to alleviate any discomfort. The goal of the PRP once injected is to stimulate the growth of new cells, increase sensitivity, increase circulation, and increase blood flow.
PRP treatment involves first drawing blood to be prepared in a centrifuge, creating the platelet-rich plasma for injection. Before injections are made, a topical numbing cream is applied to ensure patient comfort. This can then be injected to stimulate new cell growth and address erectile dysfunction. Erectus Shot 1.0 treatment is most beneficial for patients who have some tissue damage such as atherosclerosis or otherwise damaged blood vessels. Depending on your needs, Dr. Mercado may recommend that you have several treatment sessions to achieve your best possible results.
Erectus Shot™ (2.0)
This injection treatment was developed and tested by Dr. Mercado here at Eterna M.D. many years ago. This is by far the most effective treatment for erectile dysfunction. The procedure involves first extracting a small amount of blood and fat and then processing it. Once both have been processed they are injected together directly into the penis. Topical numbing cream is used as well as some gas to alleviate any discomfort. The Erectus Shot 2.0 is a particularly effective treatment option for patients who have erectile dysfunction due to complications from diabetes. It can also be useful for those who have ED as a result of the effects of radiation, Peyronie’s disease, or aging.

Acoustic Pressure Wave Therapy for ED
Acoustic Pressure Wave Therapy is used to vibrate the targeted tissues and promote accelerated tissue repair, cell growth, mobility restoration, and enhanced blood flow. It works wonders for Erectile Dysfunction and is generally done in six sessions. During the treatment, an antiseptic gel is first applied before a handpiece is placed over the treatment area, which then emits acoustic energy. This stimulates new tissue growth, helping your body to naturally repair damaged blood vessels and increase circulation. As such, Acoustic Pressure Wave Therapy is most effective for patients who suffer from erectile dysfunction due to a blood vessel disorder or damage to the blood vessels. The treatment process typically lasts about 30 minutes and is completely comfortable.
