Acoustic Wave Therapy for Erectile Dysfunction
Erectile dysfunction (ED) is the inability to achieve and/or maintain an erect penis adequate for a man’s needs, or the needs of his partner. This condition is one of the most common sexual problems for men and is more common as men age. ED can lead to stress and anxiety for many people and can affect the quality of a marriage or intimate relationships.
There are many safe and effective treatments for ED available. For those patients seeking no-drug, non-surgical solutions we offer an innovative treatment called acoustic wave therapy.
HOW DOES ACOUSTIC WAVE THERAPY WORK?
Acoustic wave therapy, also known as low-intensity extracorporeal shock wave therapy (Li-ESWT) is an outpatient procedure that uses non-invasive, low intensity pulses to cause neovascularization directly inside the penis. Neovascularization is the formation of new blood vessels that help improve blood flow. This increased circulation allows for the natural engorgement of blood to the penis encouraging stronger and longer erections.
IS ACOUSTIC WAVE THERAPY RIGHT FOR ME?
Acoustic wave therapy is one of many options used for treating erectile dysfunction. An assessment of the patient’s health history and lifestyle will be considered prior to treatment. Part of the discussion will be other treatment options that the patient has tried in the past and how effective they have been.
