What is Shockwave Therapy for Erectile Dysfunction or erection problems?
Shockwave for erectile dysfunction is a sophisticated medical treatment that uses special focussed shockwaves to stimulate the growth of new blood vessels (angiogenesis ) therefore facilitating better blood flow to the penis. A hand-held device is placed on the shaft of the penis and a series of low-level shock waves are administered. These are delivered as impulses and are not painful. Treatment takes about 20 minutes, after which, the patient will be able to carry on life as normal. Treatments are carried out by a Medical Shockwave specialist.
Shockwave treatment causes no side-effects, is non-invasive and requires just short visits to our clinic. For patients who have suffered from erectile dysfunction for some time, obvious improvements are often noticeable within two weeks after the therapy has started, though some patients who attend us having first noticed less spontaneity and hardness in their erections, report an immediate improvement.
The treatment uses focussed shockwaves which are applied to the penis using our Swiss engineered shockwave equipment, the STORZ DUOLITH® SD1 which provides ultra-focused shock wave therapy, superior to radial shockwave used by many other practitioners. The shockwaves create new blood vessels in the penis which allow for increased blood flow.
