A man looks thoughtful, possibly thinking about erectile dysfunction

Erectile dysfunction can be a difficult problem to discuss with your partner or even your doctor. However, it needn't be because erectile dysfunction, which causes sexual performance issues for men, is a very common and highly treatable condition. 

It affects approximately half of all men over age 40 While erectile dysfunction is usually a physical problem, it can also have psychological roots. More often than not, it is a combination of both. And help is available. “We have a treatment for everyone,” says Stanton Honig, MD, a director of the Yale Medicine Male Reproductive Health Program. “It's just a matter of what option you choose.” 

At Yale Medicine, we take a multidisciplinary approach to determine the underlying causes of your erectile dysfunction. We understand the relationship between erectile dysfunction and other health issues which inspires us to use an interdisciplinary approach to caring for our patients. We regularly collaborate with colleagues across different areas of medicine to help patients who we treat.
