Shockwave Therapy for ED

A REVOLUTIONARY NEW TECHNIQUE TO TREAT ERECTILE DYSFUNCTION

“Low-Intensity Shock Wave Therapy” to the penis is a brand new alternative for the treatment of difficulty with erections.    It has been shown to help men with erectile dysfunction (ED) that is unresponsive to conventional medications such as Viagra, Levitra, Cialis, or Stendra.  It is also been shown to improve function in patients who are partially responsive to medication.

Shockwave Therapy is a painless in office procedure.

We are offering a new treatment for Erectile Dysfunction using regenerative medicine. Shockwave therapy creates micro trauma to tissue, stimulating your body’s own healing response, increasing healthy blood supply, generating growth factors, and leading to the formation of new blood vessels in the treated area.

 

The key to LISWT appears to be its effect on blood flow.   Normal erections require adequate blood flow.  When sexual stimulation causes an erection, what is actually happening is that arteries open so that the penis can fill with blood.  A decrease in blood flow can cause weaker or failed erections.

When LISWT is applied, shock waves interact with the targeted tissue where they cause mechanical “micro-trauma”. This triggers a chain of events that cause the release of growth factors that stimulate the formation of new vessels and more blood flow.

LISWT was developed in Israel and has been used in both Israel in Europe.   Although FDA approved for certain orthopedic applications, in the US, its use for erectile dysfunction is still awaiting approval and therefore, the therapy is not currently covered by insurance.

The average patient requires a total of

6 treatments

within a 3 week peroid.

What is shockwave therapy and how might it help men with erectile dysfunction?

 

Shockwave therapy uses energy from acoustic waves to trigger a process called neovascularization in certain parts of the body. When neovascularization occurs, new blood vessels form. This helps improve blood flow to the region.

 

This type of therapy has been used to help heart patients, people with kidney stones, and those with fractures and joint inflammation. Recently, scientists have investigated low-intensity shockwave therapy to help men with erectile dysfunction (ED).

 

Blood flow is critical to a man’s erections. When a man is sexually stimulated, arteries widen so that his penis can fill with blood. The blood is what gives the penis the firmness needed for vaginal penetration. A man who has problems with blood flow to the penis may have weaker erections or may be unable to have erections at all.

 

There are several types of treatments available to men with ED, including pills, vacuum erection devices, and penile injections. However, these therapies are typically conducted on an as-needed basis and may work for only one sexual encounter at a time. Shockwave therapy is different, as it targets the erectile mechanism so that men are more likely to have erections on their own.

 

To administer shockwave therapy, a clinician applies a probe to the penis, which is coated in a special gel. Different areas of the penis are usually targeted. Treatment sessions may last for fifteen to twenty minutes. Men usually don’t need anesthesia or experience pain, although they might have a tingling sensation in the treated area.

 

Clinical trials of shockwave therapy for ED have had encouraging results. The process has been well tolerated by patients. Many men have found that their erections have improved and they are able to have intercourse. Men with more severe ED may still need to take ED medication in addition to having shockwave therapy.
