People who suffer from erectile dysfunction have an inability to maintain a sufficient erection for sexual intercourse. The most common reason of erectile dysfunction is inadequate blood flow to the penis. Several conditions such as Peripheral Arterial Disease, Diabetes, and Hypertension can negatively affect the blood flow to the penis.
A. The most common treatment option is PDE inhibitors. Viagra and Cialis are common PDE inhibitors. These medication cause of widening of the blood vessels to the penis increase blood flow to the penis and allowing a healthy erection. However, these medications can fail
B. At our clinic we can treat Erectile Dysfunction with Low intensity shockwave therapy.
Shockwave therapy is a non-invasive and scientifically proven to help patients with erectile dysfunction. Shockwave therapy breaks up plaques in the veins of the penis. Once the plaque is broken up patients will begin to notice firmer erections. Additionally, the shockwaves help stimulate the penis to create new blood vessels (angiogenesis); Allowing for increased blood flow to the penis for a firmer erection
People will generally need 12 treatments for optimal results. The patient will be required to come in twice a week.
Each treatment takes on average 15-20 minutes
The treatment is essentially painless. The patient can expect to feel pulses of low intensity pressure
At the end of the 12 treatments, results are expected to last 1-2 years. Patients are advised to do maintenance treatments twice a year.
Treatments results are not guaranteed and can vary from patient to patient. In clinical trials completed, not all patients benefited from the treatments.
