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.
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.
Penile acoustic wave therapy is an in-office treatment.
Penile acoustic wave therapy takes about 15 minutes. Dr. Turner sends you home after the treatment. You may experience minimum 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 one-week a part to get the best results.
You may start to see improvements in your ED within 1-3 months of your shock wave therapy. You can expect the most dramatic results over the first several weeks.
