Pollock Clinics is proud to announce the addition of a Men’s Sexual Health Program focused on the treatment of erectile dysfunction (ED).
We approach the diagnosis of erectile dysfunction by conducting a comprehensive initial assessment. A personalized treatment plan can then be developed based on your specific circumstances.
The initial consultation and assessment are covered by MSP of BC with a doctor’s referral.
Erectile Dysfunction – Causes & Solutions
The Canadian Study of Erectile Dysfunction identified that 49.4% of men over 40 have some experience with ED (from the Canadian Urological Association erectile dysfunction guideline 2015).
Though all men may experience an occasional lapse of sexual function, ED is the persistent inability to achieve an erection, despite being sexually aroused. Erectile dysfunction is a potentially treatable medical condition that is not related to masculinity or sexual prowess.
At Pollock Clinics, we are dedicated to providing our patients with the latest innovative treatments to erectile dysfunction. Our men’s sexual health program focuses on erectile dysfunction treatments and any associated issue with low testosterone. Other disorders, such as Peyronie’s disease and other forms of sexual dysfunction and conditions, such as delayed and premature ejaculation, are not currently part of our offerings. Patients looking to address such conditions should be referred to a urologist by their family physician.
Our ED Treatments & Services
At Pollock Clinics we offer both physiological and psychological treatments for erectile dysfunction. Our options include:
Erectile Dysfunction Shockwave Therapy (EDSWT)
The application of low-intensity shockwaves (like sound waves) to help re-establish proper blood flow to the penis. EDSWT is a non-invasive treatment that requires no drugs and can potentially offer long-term benefits.
This same method has been successfully tested and regularly used in other areas of medicine including Orthopedics, Aesthetic Medicine, and Sports Medicine. The aim of EDSWT is to trigger regeneration of blood vessel in the penile shaft to support stronger, longer, and more satisfying erections. Read More.
PRP Therapy – Platelet Rich Plasma Injections
Using the patient’s blood, platelet rich plasma is separated and injected into the penis, with the goal of revitalizing muscles and tissues and improving circulatory function.
PRP Shot injections are safe and approved by Health Canada.
Plasma-rich-platelet therapy (PRP) has also been a successful treatment modality in orthopedics, plastic surgery, and sports medicine. Read More.
Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT)
TRT is a hormone replacement therapy that can counter the effects of low testosterone production. TRT can help men with low testosterone regain sexual function (including quality of erections), support overall health and energy levels, as well as mood and mental function.
At Pollock Clinics our goal is to carefully select patients with erectile dysfunction who may also have signs and symptoms of low testosterone through detailed history taking, focused physical examination, and proper biochemical laboratory findings to determine the appropriateness of TRT.

Mental and emotional health can be key factors in sexual wellness. Stress, anxiety or depression can impact libido, and a man’s ability to engage with their partner.
Sex Therapy can help a person, or couple, overcome sexual problems and improve sexual feelings and intimacy.

Sexual wellness is essential to your health and happiness and should continue to be as you age. Many scientific studies have shown the numerous benefits of a healthy and active love-life which include: living longer, greater well-being and a happier and longer lasting relationship with your partner.
Men with ED can lose confidence in their sexual ability and their overall sense of self-worth can be negatively affected. Erectile dysfunction can have a devastating impact if untreated.
