The Arrigo procedure can create a permanent, durable solution to ED caused by vascular disease, alleviating the need for medications. It also gives new hope to patients who either did not respond to or could not take oral ED medications.
Erectile dysfunction (ED) is a common male sexual disorder affecting up to 50 percent of men between the ages of 40 and 70 and almost 18 million adult males in the United States. But, the physicians at Arrigo Health are helping to pioneer a treatment that widens and clears the blood vessels in the pelvis, resulting in an improved ability to have regular erections – reducing or eliminating altogether the need for prescription medications.
Until now, treatment for ED consisted of either taking medications before sexual activities or having a mechanical device implanted into the penis. Today, using the minimally invasive outpatient Arrigo Procedure, treatment of blocked blood vessels leading into the penis can be opened to treat vascular ED – one of the most common causes of erectile dysfunction.
