An erectile dysfunction (ED) clinic is a specialist service that offers treatment for erection problems. What happens at appointments will vary but it is usually run by a specialist who will talk to men about their sex life and any concerns they have, discuss available treatments for ED and check on their progress. Partners are also able to attend appointments.
There will usually be a physical assessment and the specialist may give men some treatment to try during the appointment to see whether it works. Specialists that may run ED clinics include urologists, clinical nurse specialists, andrologists and sex therapists.
Prostate Cancer UK wants all men to have access to an ED clinic offering specialist support and review of progress and treatment.
