Testosterone replacement therapy (TRT)

This is a regimen of physician prescribed testosterones used to treat hypogonadic (low testosterone) symptoms. 

Testosterone is the primary male sex hormone (androgen), which is also naturally produced in smaller amounts within the female body. 

Largely produced by and regulated through a joint effort of the glands and organs which make up the Hypothalamic-Pituitary-Testicular-Axis (HPTA), testosterone is the hormone responsible for the normal growth and development of male sex organs, and plays an integral role in: libido; mood; energy level; bone density; cognitive functions like memory and concentration; and secondary sex characteristics such as voice change, bodily hair growth, muscle mass, and fat distribution.

The Androgen Deficiency in Aging Men (ADAM) and the Aging Males' Symptoms scale (AMS) quickly assess patient mood, energy, quality of life (work and play), sleep, and sexuality. These tests are usually administered while the physician is compiling an index of symptoms - pertinent sexual, personal, and family medical information all of which aids the provider in the identification of possible genetic traits and tendencies.


Testosterone deficiency occurs when there is problem with the HPTA, resulting in a condition known as hypogonadism, and is typically due to any of three basic hypogonadic conditions: 

1) primary hypogonadism - originates from a problem within the testicles

2) secondary hypogonadism - originates from a problem within the hypothalamus or the pituitary gland

3) idiopathic, or unknown causes. More specifically


These three forms are often caused by: TRT, Klinefelter syndrome, undescended testicles, hemochromatosis, testicular trauma, cancer treatment, mumps orchitis, Kallmann syndrome, pituitary disorders, inflammatory disease, HIV/AIDS, some medications, obesity, andropause, cardiovascular problems, chronic illness, alcoholism, cirrhosis, chronic stress, diabetes.

ED - Erectile Dysfunction

Our management algorithm proceeds in a manner to ensure comprehensive treatment in the management of erectile dysfunction (ED). This begins with first line therapy including management of associated medical conditions and psychological support combined with oral medical therapy. 


Oral Agents (Pills)

Viagra® was the first oral agent with proven benefit in the treatment of erectile dysfunction. Today, there are several active ingredient-compounded oral products which give patients cost-effective options when choosing the best type of medication to suit individual needs.

Sildenafil (Viagra ®), Tadalafil (Cialis ®) and Vardenafil (Levitra ®, Staxyn ®) are called inhibitors of phosphodiesterase type-5 (PDE5-I) and have compounded versions which all work by the same mechanism. 


The advantage of medications in this group is their simplicity of use. Medications in this group help promote the development and maintenance of an erection. 

Stimulation is required for these medications to work. It is important to note that these medications do not affect sex drive or libido.
