When a man has erectile dysfunction (ED), he is unable to maintain the blood flow required for a firm and lasting
erection. This can be caused by temporary issues like fatigue or stress or can be the result of cardiovascular
conditions like diabetes, high blood pressure, or high cholesterol.

well-tolerated, non-invasive treatment for ED. It administers energy into the tissues to improve blood flow in the

What is Shockwave Therapy?
Low-intensity shockwave therapy uses acoustic sound waves to encourage the creation of new blood vessels. This
process is called neovascularization.
What is Shockwave Therapy’s function on ED?
Traditional treatments for erectile dysfunction include vacuum erection devices and pharmaceutical pills. These
treatments help produce erections for sexual encounters.
Shockwave therapy is drug- and injection-free. When applied to a patient experiencing ED, neovascularization
improves blood flow to the area which improves nerves (sensation) and tissue (size). The energy waves also
break-down micro-plaque and restore aged blood vessels.
As a result of the shockwave therapy, your erections may be stronger with improved orgasms. The treatment also
increases the likelihood of achieving sudden, unexpected, and self-sustaining erections in the future.
Shockwave therapy can also treat Peyronie’s disease, which can cause ED. For those with Peyronie’s disease,
shockwave therapy improves curvature, reduces pain, and increases libido and sexual satisfaction.
This minimally-invasive procedure is for patients 18 or older. Tell Dr. Williams if you use tobacco, drink heavily,
take anticoagulants, have an infection, or have conditions like obesity and nerve disorders.
Your Shockwave Procedure and Aftercare
A probe coated with a gel is stroked along the penis and other areas of your genital area. The acoustic energy is
delivered from this probe into the erectile tissue to begin the neovascularization process. You may feel a tingling
sensation. Your overall shockwave procedure will take about 30 minutes.
You may receive one to two treatments per week. The effects of shockwave therapy may last for up to 2 years,
depending on the severity of your initial ED. Dr. Williams will discuss with you how many treatments you’ll need to
reach your desired results, as well as when you can expect to see results.
