Low Intensity Shockwave Therapy for Erectile Dysfunction
Low Intensity Shock Wave Therapy for ED (erectile dysfunction) is emerging as a potential powerful treatment for men suffering from ED. Numerous studies have identified over a 50% response rate in men treated with this therapy. The treatment is painless and requires no preparation or anesthesia. It is performed in Dr. Lief’s office.
Shock wave treatment for ED works by utilizing low intensity acoustic pulse waves. The waves then break up small plaques in the vessels that supply blood to the penis. This results in improved blood flow that is necessary for an erection.
The pulse waves have been shown to increase the release of nitric oxide, which can stimulate the formation of new blood vessels: a process also known as neovascularization.
This form of therapy works well on men that respond to oral medications such as Cialis™, and Viagra™, and can also convert nonresponders to responders. The treatment is currently not FDA approved in the United States but is approved in many countries. The treatment is affordable, safe and has the potential to improve a man’s sexual function.
