Shockwave Therapy for ED in Orange County, CA
As men get older they can experience weaker erections and may not respond during sex or intimate moments. Erectile dysfunction, or ED, is due to diminished blood flow to the penis and the interlining of the blood vessels. It can become worse with age or with other underlying diseases such as high blood pressure, diabetes, or high cholesterol. It is very common in men, especially over age 40.
Regardless of the reason for ED, there are various treatment options available, including shockwave therapy. Low-intensity extracorporeal shock wave therapy (LI-ESWT) is a novel modality that has recently been developed for treating ED. Unlike other treatments, shock therapy aims to restore the penis to enable natural or spontaneous erections.
Dr. Sun Kim and Dr. Ashok J. Kar are board-certified urologist who have extensive training and experience using shockwave therapy as a treatment for ED. Learn how shockwave therapy can help you overcome your ED and schedule your consultation today!
How Does Shockwave Therapy Work?
Shockwave therapy is a targeted therapy to help solve the underlying problem of erectile dysfunction.
- sends painless energy waves to the erectile tissue
- produces vital growth factors
- increases nitric oxide formation
- may help to form new blood vessels
- increases blood flow to penis
What are the Benefits of Shockwave Therapy for ED
Shockwave therapy has been clinically investigated and applied in several medical fields with success.
During the treatment, a small wand device uses targeted sound waves to stimulate penile tissue and encourage blood flow. Low-intensity shockwaves help grow new blood vessels and improve blood flow in the penis, which is essential for erections.
Some benefits of shockwave therapy include:
- a more firm erection reported by men
- the creation of new blood vessels
- increased blood flow to penis
- the ability to return to work or home in 20-30 minutes
- no lengthy recovery time
- no pain
- no surgery
- no pills or devices
Why Choose Shockwave Therapy Over Other ED Treatment Options?
Many men choose shockwave therapy to get to the core of the ED problem and restore erections.
Other treatment options may help to restore erections temporarily, but they do not alter the underlying functional changes of the penis and tissue.
Other treatments are usually:
- taken on demand
- required prior to the sexual act
- limited by time to achieve a desired effect
- used only to improve a single sexual encounter
Shockwave therapy has been reported to have lasting effects for men years after treatment.
