Shockwave Therapy is an advanced treatment option for men suffering from ED designed to target underlying causes. It is an in-office treatment created to improve erectile function with just 6-8 weekly sessions. Most patients who undergo Shockwave Therapy have noticed better erections.


Shockwave Therapy is a new, invigorating solution to treating ED. If you are having early signs of difficulty or keeping an erection, or you are currently taking medications for your erectile dysfunction, Shockwave Therapy could be right for you.

How Does Shockwave Therapy work?

Acoustic waves are distributed to key locations in the penis to increase blood flow by stimulating new blood vessel growth and creating healthier tissue. Therefore, resulting in better quality erections.

Shockwave Therapy is ideal for patients with mild to moderate erectile dysfunction. Men with severe ED may need longer treatments and are less likely to respond.

A reasonable expectation is that men who generally benefit from oral medication for ED will no longer need pills if they respond well to Shockwave Therapy. Additionally, men who do not respond to oral medication may benefit better from Shockwave Therapy. Overall, about 65% of men respond to treatment.

Shockwave Therapy can be a beneficial treatment to men who have the beginning signs of erectile dysfunction, as well as men who use injection medications for ED.
