Impotence or Erectile Dysfunction (ED) Defined
Impotence, or ED, is the inability to achieve or maintain an erection suitable for sexual intercourse. It means that a man has a problem achieving or maintaining an erection. It does not mean that he has a problem with fertility, ejaculation or orgasm.
In the United States, it is estimated that 10 to 30 million men suffer from ED. About one of every 10 adult males has an ongoing or “chronic” problem with ED. And, above the age of 60, about one in every three is no longer able to achieve an erection suitable for sexual intercourse.

The satisfaction rate among patients and their partners is very high.
