Andrology

Andrology is a medical and surgical specialty that deals with problems related to the male reproductive system. This discipline includes several branches, such as endocrinology (for hormonal abnormalities) and urology (for disorders of the male urogenital system).

When should you see an andrologist?

Sexual dysfunctions and desire disorders such as erectile dysfunction, ejaculation disorders and infertility can affect anyone and occur at any age. In this case, it is necessary to call upon an andrologist: a specialist in pathologies related to the male genital system who offers effective management and optimal solutions.

Common sexual disorders

Erectile dysfunction

Impotence is the most commonly observed sexual dysfunction in men. This dysfunction is often caused by hormonal problems (age-related androgen deficiency), neurological, vascular and psychological problems, drug treatments, and an unhealthy lifestyle (smoking, obesity, lack of exercise). The andrologist determines the cause of the problem and then suggests the best treatment depending on the patient's situation.

Ejaculation disorder

When consulting an andrologist, it is determined whether premature or late ejaculation is primary (present since the beginning of active sexual life) or secondary (occurring after a period of active sexual life). Since it is often psychogenic in origin, treatment is characterized by psychological support and drug treatment.

Infertility

When an infertile couple seeks medical treatment, medical examinations and tests must be performed on both the man and the woman. Sperm analyses such as the spermiogram and spermatocytogram reveal possible abnormalities, which are then analyzed to find the best method of medically assisted reproduction.

Personal care by Swiss Medical

It is important to see a doctor as soon as you begin to experience sexual dysfunction, in order to avoid any medical or psychosexual effects in later life.

We carry out a full sexual health assessment to identify the causes and tailor treatment accordingly. We may suggest a medical approach, such as low-intensity shock wave treatment, platelet-rich plasma injections or conventional medical treatment options, or a surgical solution, such as an artificial penile implant.

 An andrology specialist, sometimes working together with a sexologist, delivers comprehensive care and patients receive personalised follow-up throughout their treatment.
