Our center now offers extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT) to treat erectile dysfunction (ED), a technique which has been used in Europe for more than a decade and is now available in the United States. It uses pulsed acoustical sound waves (radial shock waves) to start a process called neovascularization. These acoustic waves help form new blood vessels and increase blood flow to the area. It has been used before for other conditions, including heart conditions, kidney stones, and orthopedic conditions.

ESWT offers many advantages to potential patients. Unlike medications, ESWT doesn’t require people to take oral drugs or shots prior to sex. It’s also non-invasive, so there is no surgery involved and there are few side effects to the treatments. There is also no downtime with the treatments, and each session only takes 20 minutes. Best of all, patients will only need 10 to 12 treatments for lasting results.
Other benefits of ESWT include the following:
In the office, a clinician will apply a gel to the patient’s penis before applying the special shockwave probe to five different areas. The entire penis is treated, including the hidden parts called the Crus. Treatment sessions last about 20 minutes each, and no anesthesia is needed, as the treatments are painless. Some patients might notice a tingling sensation, but this is not an uncomfortable feeling.
Many men have vasculogenic ED, which is caused by a lack of blood flow to the sexual organ. ESWT can help them as well as diabetic men whose condition contributes to their ED. It has also been used to treat those who are both responsive and unresponsive to ED medication.
Current studies of patients using ESWT indicate the benefits can last up to 2 years or longer, and 2 out of 3 men with vascular or diabetic ED will have favorable results. So far, there have been more than 40 studies conducted on ESWT, most of which have shown promising results. Up to 75% of men who were taking oral medication to treat VD were able to stop taking the medication after ESWT and perform intercourse successfully. Around 72% of people who were unresponsive to oral ED medication were able to perform intercourse after ESWT along with oral drugs. Likewise, the treatments have been well-tolerated by patients overall. Many patients have found their erections had improved and they were able to have intercourse successfully.
We recommend this treatment be used in conjunction with the Priapus Shot® for enhanced results. If you would like to discuss ESWT in more depth with our skilled physician, Dr. G.
