Therapy for ED

Shockwave therapy, also known as Low-Intensity Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (LI-ESWT), is a non-invasive treatment for erectile dysfunction (ED). This therapy uses sound waves to stimulate blood vessel growth and improve blood flow to the penis, which can enhance erectile function.

How It Works

During the procedure, a device delivers low-intensity shockwaves to the penile tissue. These shockwaves trigger a process called neovascularization, which promotes the formation of new blood vessels. This increased blood flow can help achieve and maintain erections.

What to Expect

  • Initial Consultation: The treatment begins with a consultation to assess your condition and determine if shockwave therapy is appropriate for you.
  • Treatment Sessions: Each session lasts about 15-20 minutes. Typically, a course of treatment involves 6-12 sessions, conducted once or twice a week.
  • Procedure: The therapy is painless and does not require anesthesia. You might feel a slight tingling sensation during the treatment.
  • Post-Treatment: There is no downtime, so you can resume normal activities immediately after each session.
  • Duration of Treatment: The entire treatment course usually spans over 3-6 weeks, depending on the number of sessions recommended. Many patients report improvements within a few weeks, with the full benefits often noticeable a few months after completing the treatment course.

Shockwave therapy is an innovative option for those seeking a non-invasive solution to ED, offering potential long-term benefits without the need for medication or surgery.
