Men’s Health and Sexual Function

It can take a long time to seek out help with sexual function or urinary problems.

We understand the challenge, and our specialty trained physicians and surgeons want you to know that there is much hope. We routinely help patients who haven’t responded to common treatments like Viagra. You want to know why this is happening, and we have the answers as well as solutions.


Compassionate Care from Expert Practitioners

You might feel like what’s happening to you is rare and unusual, but it’s more common than you might think. It’s estimated that as high as 50% of the male population over 50 suffer from sexual dysfunction. You are not alone, and you do have options. 

The hardest step in fixing sexual function problems is the first one through our door. Once here, patients find caring physicians who speak to them in a way they can understand, and with compassion. We know how important it really is to take care of sexual function problems, so you can live your life the way you want to.


Specialists in Men’s Health & Sexual Function

Our team excels in treating hypogonadism and erectile dysfunction. In addition our team has expertise in treating other disorders of the penis including Peyronie's disease. An estimated 10% of men suffer from Peyronie's disease, in which the penis bends when erect. We have the only organized group of fellowship trained rehabilitative urology surgeons in the state. They are experts in helping patients regain function after prostatectomies. We do a very high volume of penile implant surgeries, and participate actively in funded research protocols for erectile dysfunction – leading as many as 75 research projects annually. In fact, the only tissue study on sexual potency in medical literature world-wide was done right here.

Our team also treats those suffering from Benign Prostate Hyperplasia (or BPH), offering the HOLAP (holmium laser ablation of the prostate) outpatient procedure as an option for treatment, which does not require the patient to stay overnight.

We also have vast experience and expertise with penile prosthetics. Our practice makes certain that your care is truly comprehensive, so you can return to the best sexual function possible.

Fertility

Because there are many male fertility issues that can’t be found through analysis of semen or specific hormones, it’s important to consult a urologist who is a fertility specialist.

Specialty Training and an Interdisciplinary Team Approach

The Tallwood Institute has one of the few urologists that are fellowship trained in Male Reproductive Medicine. This training includes specialization in the latest technologies and microsurgical skills often required to treat male fertility problems. In combination with this expertise, patients benefit from our interdisciplinary approach to male fertility, involving specialists in gynecology, primary care, and oncology and radiology as needed.


Men's Health and Sexual Function Team

Jared Bieniek, MD, leads our Men’s Health & Sexual Function team. This includes endocrinology, cardiology, urology and psychology. Dr. Bieniek's team is also developing programs to maintain prostate health, assess endocrine and cardiac function as well as address infertility and erectile dysfunction.
