Talks move from explanations on normal anatomy and male sexual function to the changes that occur after injury or in certain spinal conditions. Recent studies show that Erectile Dysfunction is more common than generally assumed with 5% of men at the age of 40 having severe dysfunction and 25% having mild to moderate dysfunction which increases with age. Certain spinal conditions such as Cauda Equina Syndrome or even simple spinal stenosis can worsen this. Our experts discuss the treatment options in an open and understandable manner.


Spinal cord injury with ensuing Erectile Dysfunction is a separate entity. Our experts explain the physiological changes due to injury and the various treatment modalities which range from medical support through to penile implants. Myths and facts about these conditions are separated for greater clarity and the importance of reaching out to specialists for help at the earliest signs and symptoms is emphasized.
