We have very advanced gadgets to investigate problems of erectile dysfunction. The basic test is the Rigi scan. Rigiscan is a highly advanced gadget which records the different events that accompany erection. It is a very useful tool to differentiate between functional and organic ED.
In the OPD we have facilities to carry out a provocative Rigiscan where we give a visual stimulus in form of erotic movies. This we combine with oral medications to increase the efficiency of the test. It is a helpful if the patient takes this test in company of his female partner.
We also have facilities for intra cavernosal injections, vacuum pump and colour Doppler studies. We also provide facilities for implantation of artificial prosthesis for patients where conservative management fails.
