Men's health is a broad and complex topic, encompassing a range of physical, emotional, and mental health concerns. Listed below are various categories of men's health, the challenges men face in obtaining proper treatment, and why compassionate care is crucial for men's health.
Despite the importance of these issues, many men face significant challenges in obtaining proper treatment and care. Many men are reluctant to seek help or speak openly about their health concerns, leading to a lack of awareness and understanding of the specific health needs of men. Additionally, traditional gender roles can lead to a lack of support and resources for men's health, further exacerbating the difficulties in obtaining proper care.
It is essential that men receive compassionate care when addressing their health concerns. Compassionate care involves treating patients with empathy, respect, and understanding, and taking into account the unique challenges and experiences of each individual. This type of care not only improves the patient experience, but also leads to better health outcomes, as patients are more likely to be open and honest about their health concerns and follow through with recommended treatments.
At SMIU, we believe in the importance of compassionate care and are committed to providing men with the resources and support they need to prioritize their health and well-being. Whether you are seeking information about a specific health concern or are looking for support and resources, we are here to help.
Low Testosterone -- Low testosterone, also known as hypogonadism, is a condition in which a man has a testosterone level that is lower than normal. Testosterone is a hormone that is produced by the testicles and is responsible for many important functions in the male body, including muscle mass and strength, bone density, body hair growth, and sexual function. When testosterone levels are low, it can lead to a range of physical and emotional symptoms that can significantly impact a man's quality of life.
Erectile dysfunction -- Erectile dysfunction, also known as impotence, is a common and often distressing condition in which a man is unable to achieve or maintain an erection sufficient for satisfactory sexual activity. This condition can have a significant impact on a man's quality of life, affecting not only his sexual health but also his emotional well-being and relationships. Erectile dysfunction can be caused by a range of factors, including physical health conditions, medications, and lifestyle choices.
Vasectomy -- A vasectomy is a permanent form of birth control for men that involves the surgical severing or blocking of the vas deferens, the tubes that carry sperm from the testicles to the urethra. This procedure results in a man no longer being able to father a child. Vasectomy is a safe, simple, and effective form of birth control that is growing in popularity as a permanent solution for couples who have completed their family or who do not wish to have children in the future.
Pelvic Pain -- Men's pelvic pain is a common but often underdiagnosed condition that can have a significant impact on a man's quality of life. This type of pain can occur in the lower abdomen, genital area, or rectum and can be caused by a range of physical, emotional, and mental health conditions. Some of the most common causes of men's pelvic pain include prostatitis, testicular pain, and chronic pelvic pain syndrome.
Peyronie’s Disease -- Peyronie's disease is a condition in which a man experiences pain and a curvature of the penis during an erection. This curvature can cause difficulties during sexual intercourse and can impact a man's self-esteem and quality of life. Peyronie's disease is caused by the development of fibrous tissue, or plaque, inside the shaft of the penis. The exact cause of Peyronie's disease is unknown, but it is thought to be related to injury to the penis, genetics, or underlying health conditions.
Men’s health encompasses a broad range of topics. Please find out more about specific conditions below.

Men should have a check-up with a doctor at least once a year to monitor their health. It would address any concerns and catch potential issues early. The frequency may vary based on individual health status and age.
Stress and poor mental health can lead to various sexual health issues. It reduces libido, lead to erectile dysfunction, and exacerbate difficulties with arousal and performance. Managing stress and seeking support for mental health can positively influence sexual health.

I had been having significant issues with erectile function secondary to my diabetes. Dr. Patel did a procedure on me to place a penile prosthesis and straighten it. I could not be happier. Works like a charm, whenever I want! Thanks Dr. Patel, very happy with the results.

I had been having significant difficulty with many different things that affect men when they age. I had seen Dr. Patel on the recommendation of a friend in the area. He immediately understood what I was going through, and we had figured out the root of my problem. We started a plan that worked for me, and now I've been seeing him for 10 years! He has never steered me wrong, great guy and a great doctor.
