Treatment of man and not of the disease
I am dr. Fabio Castiglione Andrologist Urologist in London . I have devoted my entire professional life for studying male sexual dysfunction. My passion led me to graduate in medicine, to pursue a major in Urology-Andrology and finally a PhD in stem cells and erectile dysfunction. I have traveled the world, from the United States to India, trying to learn all the most advanced techniques for the treatment of erectile dysfunction . Based on these clinical experiences and the different scientific experiments that I have done in the laboratory, I have developed a new "holistic" approach to male erectile dysfunction . This approach aims to treat not only the pathology itself, such as erectile dysfunction, but also male sexual health in its entirety as "a state of physical, mental and social well-being in relation to sexuality". I am dr. Fabio Castiglione Andrologist-Urologist in London
