The following is a Press Release from the Lake Charles Memorial Hospital:
If you—or your partner—suffers from erectile dysfunction, you are not alone. Approximately 94 million men worldwide are affected by ED, the inability to get or keep an erection.
ED can have physical causes such as diabetes, hypertension, or the natural aging process, or can be manifestations of anxiety and depression disorders. However, in most cases, ED is treatable.
To learn more, join John Upshaw, MD, a urologist with Memorial Medical Group board certified by the American Board of Urology, for Understanding Erectile Dysfunction, an in-depth look at the causes of ED and possible treatment options, including medication, lifestyle changes and advancements in minimally invasive implants.
Dr. Upshaw is a graduate of Louisiana State University and LSU Health Sciences Center-New Orleans, and completed his internship and residency at Ochsner Clinic Foundation/Louisiana State University in New Orleans.
Understanding Erectile Dysfunction is a free seminar being held at 12noon on Thursday, July 26th, in the Shearman Conference Center at Memorial Hospital on Oak Park Boulevard. Refreshments will be provided, but reservations are required at least 24 hours in advance.
