Tulane Medical Center May 31, 2018

Tulane Urology is hosting a free seminar on erectile dysfunction and male incontinence on Tuesday, June 5, from 6-8 p.m., in Tulane Medical Center’s Faculty Club, located at 1415 Tulane Ave. in downtown New Orleans.

Dr. Wayne Hellstrom, chief of andrology at Tulane University School of Medicine, is the keynote speaker for the event. He is joined by Tulane andrology fellow Dr. Laith Alziwrei. The seminar will review the common types of sexual dysfunction and incontinence in men, as well as different treatment options, including surgical and non-surgical therapies.

According to the National Institute of Health, erectile dysfunction (ED), sometimes called "impotence," affects as many as 30 million men in the United States.

“Many men find it difficult to speak with their doctor about erectile dysfunction,” Dr. Hellstrom said. “We invite men and their significant others to attend this free seminar to learn about the different options for treating ED, which can include lifestyle changes, prescription medication, medical devices and surgery.”

The event is free and open to men, their spouses and healthcare providers.
