Andrology

Andrology focuses on the male reproductive system. It is mainly concerned with male infertility, erectile dysfunction and ejaculatory disorders. Since male sexuality is largely controlled by hormones, andrology overlaps with endocrinology. Medical management for erectile dysfunction includes extensive investigations .

Surgery in this field includes dorsal or ventral plaque removal in peyronnies disease , fertilization procedures, vasectomy reversals, Implantation of penile prostheses either with semirigid or inflatable devices is a major surgery which definitely boosts the morale of the patient.. Vasectomies may also be included here although most Urologists perform this procedure. Priapism (continous erection) due to trauma or venoocclusive disorders is a rare but devastating condition that if not treated immediately leads to erectile dysfunction.
