Urology & Andrology
Premature Ejaculation and Erectile Dysfunction
Integrative management of Andrological and Urological diseases utilizes TCM theory and clinical experience in the management of male-related disorders. Male-related Andrological dysfunction such as Erectile Dysfunction and Premature ejaculation, can be divided into psychological and functional causes. Psychological causes are frequently caused by excessive anxiety, depression, poor relationships or external stressors. These affect the emotional well-being of a person prior to sexual activity resulting in poor performance. Functional causes are usually caused by existing underlying conditions. These include conditions such as hormonal, vascular, neurological and iatrogenic causes.
Hormonal causes include hypogonadism, low testosterone and thyroid abnormalities. Vascular causes include Diabetes Mellitus, Atherosclerosis, High Cholesterol or Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD). It results in the hardening of blood vessels causing difficulties with the blood flowing to the penis. Neurological causes include Diabetes Mellitus, Vitamin B12 deficiency, Cauda Equina Syndrome, Spinal Cord Injuries, Guillain Barre Syndrome and Trauma. Iatrogenic causes refers to patients who underwent a procedure or surgery around the penile area such as radical prostatectomy for Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) or prostate cancer where the surrounding nerves supplying the penile region is being damaged. These disorders in turn destroy the normal functioning of nerves innervating the penis, causing difficulties in the conduction of the sensory and motor systems. As the nervous system is damaged, the blood pressure within the penis is unable to be controlled, hence resulting in conditions like erectile dysfunction.
Treatment of Andrological disorders requires the proper diagnosis of underlying conditions which will be done with our medical doctors and TCM physicians. A detailed consultation will be done to understand the underlying reason for your condition. Ultrasound and blood test might be taken to understand your blood sugar levels as well as the vascular flow to the penile region. Subsequently, based on the different conditions, a variety of medications will be given to stimulate the underlying vascular flow to the penile region, increase your androgen levels as well as regenerate the underlying nervous system to the penile region. Patients will then undergo our 6-point neuro-electroacupuncture that is devised by Dr. Wong Lin Ho.
Prostatitis is the inflammation of the prostate gland which results in pain in the groin area, pain on urination or erection, cloudy urine, frequency, urgency, and blood in urine. It can be divided into 1. Acute Bacterial Prostatitis 2. Chronic Bacterial Prostatitis 3. Chronic Prostatitis 4. Asymptomatic Inflammatory Prostatitis. Risk factors include young or middle-aged adulthood, previous prostatitis, infection of the urinary or reproductive system,
HIV infection or AIDS, use of a tube inserted into the urethra to drain the bladder (urinary catheter), and diagnostic sampling of prostate tissue (biopsy). Treatment of prostatitis is dependent on whether it is a bacterial or non bacterial prostatitis.
In bacterial prostatitis, herbs with antibacterial effects are utilised. They are used to ensure that the underlying causative bacteria is being eliminated to prevent further worsening of inflammation. In the case of a non-bacterial prostatitis, the role of antibiotics or herbs with antibacterial effects can be limited. Neuroelectroacupuncture around the penile area helps with the reduction in the underlying inflammation and modulation of penile nerves to reduce the overlying symptoms.
What is 6-point Neuro-electroacupuncture?
Traditionally, Chinese Medicine do not have acupoints located near the penile region. Combining both the neuroanatomical knowledge with Chinese medical treatment modality, Dr. Wong Lin Ho devised a 6-point neuro-electroacupuncture area which targets both the sensory and motor nerves (including dorsal penile and ilioinguinal nerves) which supplies the penile region. With the aid of electrical currents, the technique helps to modulate the underlying nerves to resume their normal activities. This technique has successfully been used for the management of diseases such as Erectile dysfunction, Premature ejaculation, Retrograde ejaculation, Overactive bladder and Prostatitis.
