Penile Acoustic Wave Therapy Q&A

What is penile acoustic wave therapy?

Penile acoustic wave therapy is a drug-free treatment for erectile dysfunction (ED). This therapy, clinically called low-intensity shockwave therapy (LiSWT), uses sound pulses to stimulate the growth of new blood vessels and nerve endings in the penis.

ED has many causes, including blockages in the blood vessels you need to get an erection and damage to the nerve endings needed for arousal. By triggering the growth of blood vessels and nerve endings, penile acoustic wave therapy improves penis health and function.

Dr. Turner is an expert at treating ED and offers many treatment options, including penile acoustic wave therapy with GAINSWave.

Am I a candidate for penile acoustic wave therapy?

Dr. Turner determines if you’re a candidate for penile acoustic wave therapy after a consultation at the Endurance Clinic. He may consider you a candidate for this noninvasive therapy if you have mild ED and medication failed to improve your symptoms.

He may also consider you a candidate for penile acoustic wave therapy if you have mild ED and don’t want to take medication. 

What happens during penile acoustic wave therapy?

Penile acoustic wave therapy is an in-office treatment. Before starting GAINSWave, Dr. Turner applies a topical numbing lotion to your genitals to decrease discomfort.

He then places the GAINSWave sound wave instrument on your penis to deliver the sound pulses. He moves the device along the entire shaft of your penis, as well as the area under the testicles. 

Penile acoustic wave therapy takes about 15 minutes. Dr. Turner sends you home after the treatment. You may experience some discomfort following your session, which you can relieve with over-the-counter (OTC) pain medication. 

Most patients return to their usual activities within a day. 

Dr. Turner recommends you undergo six penile acoustic wave therapy treatments over a one-week period to get the best results.

When can I expect results from penile acoustic wave therapy?

You may start to see improvements in your ED within 1-3 months of your GAINSWave therapy. You can expect the most dramatic results over the first several weeks.

Penile acoustic wave therapy is a non-pharmaceutical treatment for ED. To find out more about this alternative treatment, call the Endurance Clinic or schedule an appointment online today.
