Erectile dysfunction (ED) occurs when a man cannot achieve or maintain an erection for sexual activities. While erection problems are common in older men, all men experience them from time to time. ED refers to an ongoing problem, and doctors use different treatments to address it: oral medicines, penile injections, penis pumps and surgical implants. Penis surgery is a common procedure in medical tourism.
Impotence sometimes results from an underlying medical condition like heart disease or diabetes. Medical tourism doctors treat foreign travelers through medical testing, penis surgery and psychological counseling. Men with erection problems often consult with urologists, endocrinologists, cardiologists and psychiatrists. International hospitals and clinics are located in Asia, Europe, Latin America and the Middle East. Thailand, Israel, Malaysia, Mexico and India are notable for erectile dysfunction treatments.
