Approximately 30 million men in the U.S. suffer from some form of erectile dysfunction (ED). Contrary to what many believe, it is not limited to those over the age of 50. To help educate the community on the prevalence, causes, risk factors and treatments of ED, urologist Egbert Baumgart, MD, a board-certified physician with Urology Associates of York Hospital, will present a webinar, “Signs, Symptoms & Treatment for Erectile Dysfunction,” on Wednesday, February 15, from 6 p.m. – 7 p.m.

Dr. Baumgart will address the questions and concerns of men and their partners dealing with this affliction, and community members curious to learn more about the disease. Topics will include:

  • ED etiology: What is it and where does it come from? Who is at risk?
  • Review of all FDA-approved treatment options
  • Treatment resistance: Why therapies may not work or stop working.
  • Penile implant option

In addition, a patient champion will share his own ED story and experience. The program will end with a live Q&A session. Participants may submit questions when they register or by emailing [email protected] and putting “Feb. 15 Webinar” in the subject line.
