About Erectile Dysfunction
Erectile dysfunction, often shortened to ED, is a urologic condition characterized by a consistent inability to achieve or maintain erections, which affects the lives of millions every year. Although it is normal for men to experience bouts of ED at some point in their life, it can become chronic. Not being able to have an erection can imply the existence of other underlying health complications, which is why it is vital to seek out medical guidance as soon as possible.
At Atlanta Cosmetic Urology, board-certified urologist Dr. Tariq Hakky can identify the specific causes of your ED through diagnostic testing. He will explain to you in great detail the findings of your test results. Dr. Hakky will also answer your questions, listen to your needs, and work closely with you to determine the right treatments. Atlanta Cosmetic Urology has the instruments and technologies necessary to help renew your sexual health. You do not need a referral. Please call and schedule a private consultation with Dr. Hakky today.
If you have developed Peyronie's disease, the fibrous tissue inside of the penis has scarred and bowed into a curved shape. This bend in your penis may produce a mediocre or painful erection. Over time, repeated injuries to the penis can cause the condition to progress, but the root cause of Peyronie's disease is still unknown. Symptoms can include:
- A bend in the penis
- Feeling pain while erect
- Difficulty maintaining erections
- Painful sexual intercourse (for you and/or your partner)
- A narrowing of the affected portion of the penile shaft
Due to the high level of penile discomfort and a bent shape, Peyronie's disease can also contribute to ED. Sexual intercourse (for you and/or your partner) may be uncomfortable. Dr. Hakky treats his patients with this condition with penile injections, penile prosthesis, various surgical procedures, or oral medications.

"Dr. Hakky is such a great doctor. We first found him at a Urology practice in Snellville and were SOOOO happy to hear he was opening his own practice. My husband had an abnormal semen analysis and has Low T, so treatments were typically go to fertility specialist for IVF or IUI. Dr. Hakky introduced us to a newer way to treat both and we are now pregnant with our 2nd child and my husband feels great hormone wise. I am a nurse at a OBGYN practice and we now send all of our abnormal semen analysis patients to him. He has a great personality and knows his stuff. Highly recommend!!"- L.J. / Google / Dec 04, 2019
Because your sexual health could be negatively impacted by many factors, pinpointing the exact cause of your erectile disorder can often be difficult. Ranging in everything from the physical to the psychological, there are a number of components that could potentially be impacting the quality and duration of your erections.
You may be at a higher risk to develop ED if you smoke and drink excessively or experience prolonged depression, stress, or anxiety. Although psychological and lifestyle conditions do play a role, the majority of ED cases can be traced back to a physical cause. You may have diabetes, low testosterone or other hormone imbalances, Peyronie's disease, pelvic trauma, kidney disease, or some form of vascular diseases.
Symptoms and risk factors
Most commonly, symptoms of ED include having consistent troubles with keeping or even getting erections. Additionally, experiencing a reduction in sexual drive or desire can also be a sign of ED. Those who have particular medical conditions, such as diabetes or Peyronie's disease, are often at a greater risk of developing ED over time. Being overweight, as well as overindulging in drugs and alcohol, can increase your likelihood of developing the condition. There could even be certain medications contributing to your ED that you may not know about, as well as any underlying psychological conditions.
When you visit our urological office for a consultation, Dr. Hakky will assess your medical history and ask you about any medications you are taking to better understand your unique situation. From there, he may be able to figure out what the cause of your ED may be and recommend treatments or procedures to combat the condition.
Just as there are an array of causes that contribute to ED, there is also a vast pool of treatment options available. Atlanta Cosmetic Urology is a premier facility that offers a full library of services (surgical and nonsurgical) tailored to address your unique concerns and goals.

The treatment program that is selected for you will heavily depend on the root cause of your ED. For some, prescription medication may be suitable while others may require a surgical or nonsurgical procedure to effectively address the condition.
Dr. Hakky will be working closely with you through every step of your journey at his Atlanta, GA urology office.
