What is WAVE Therapy?
Low-intensity shock wave therapy (Li-ESWT) is an effective, painless, drug-free solution to erectile dysfunction.
WAVE Therapy involves delivering a series of low energy wave pulses to the penis to improve blood flow. Treatments are painless, performed in the office without the need for medication or surgery, and take just a few minutes. The acoustic waves stimulate growth factors to create new blood vessels (“neovascularization”), and rejuvenate erectile tissue. This improves blood flow to the penis to create stronger and more sustainable erections.
Oral medications work by temporarily increasing blood flow to the penis by opening up existing blood vessels. "Neovascularization" from WAVE Therapy is a permanent process in which blood flow is restored and improved through the formation of new blood vessels.
Is WAVE Therapy effective?
WAVE Therapy is most effective for patients with mild to moderate erectile dysfunction caused by common conditions such as high blood pressure, diabetes, and the aging process. Clinical trials have shown the most improvement in patients who show the early signs of ED, patients who take oral medication for erections, or patients in whom oral medications are no longer effective.

There is no "one size fits all" approach to ED treatment. Our affiliated offices perform WAVE Therapy with the innovative Duolith SD1 Ultra device; treatment parameters are based on clinical data and individualized for each patient's specific needs. The effectiveness of this modern shock wave equipment is determined by the individually selectable, dynamic and powerful energy range and the therapeutic depth of focus that can be chosen. Deep-lying areas can be treated easily with a high degree of accuracy. Advantages over other commonly used ESWT devices include shorter treatment sessions, more focused delivery system for more durable results, and no anesthesia required.
