Men’s Health Conditions
As a leader in the field of men’s health, Dr. Wierschem has helped thousands of men with sexual health issues using the latest in medical technology. He has devoted his practice to the diagnosis, treatment and education of men on issues such as ED, BPH, Low-T and Prostate Cancer.
Male Sexual and Reproductive Health
A very common group of conditions that urology covers is reproductive health. This is anything relating to a male’s ability to reproduce. Reproductive health conditions include low testosterone, erectile dysfunction, and also infertility.
Almost all men experience a drop in testosterone as they age. However, an extreme loss of testosterone can lead to many side effects such as fatigue, low sex drive, and mood changes. Many treatment options exist and the doctor will review these with you to determine the most appropriate plan.
About 35% of all infertility issues are caused by the male reproductive system. A common cause for men is a varicocele. Dr. Wierschem has extensive experience with microscopic varicocele repair which has also been shown to increase Testosterone level by up to 200 points.
When scar tissue develops under the skin of the penis due to trauma or minor injury, Peyronie’s disease may occur. This can result in the penis becoming bent or indented during an erection, which can cause increasing pain or difficulty with intercourse.
Prostate and other Urinary Issues
Many people experience urinary incontinence, both men and women. Additionally, we also treat conditions such as Kidney Stones and BPH, which can cause issues with your urinary tract and bladder health.
As men grow older, many will begin to have difficulty with urination. Some of these symptoms include a weak stream, straining, urgency and frequency. Dr. Wierschem has extensive experience with BPH and offers a variety of treatments including laser ablation and Rezum®.
Anywhere from 5% to 15% of men over the of 60 are affected by male urinary incontinence. Urinary incontinence in men can be quite embarrassing for some men and prevent them from enjoying a lot of activities. Good treatment options exist to help men regain control of their leakage.
Prostate cancer is the second most common type of cancer in men and affects almost 175,000 new men every year. Dr. Wierschem and his colleagues at Texas Urology Associates offer the most innovative diagnostic studies and comprehensive treatment options in the country.
Up to 15% of the population will be affected by kidney stones at some point in their life. Dr. Wierschem and his colleagues at Texas Urology Associates have expertise in all forms of treatment for kidney stones. In most cases, patients with active stones will be seen within 24-48 hours.
