Penile Shockwave Therapy for ED

Shockwave therapy, a non-invasive and drug-free treatment option for erectile dysfunction, is now available in Vancouver at Pollock Clinics.

Erectile Dysfunction Shock Wave Therapy (EDSWT) is an innovative approach to vasculogenic ED, delivered by Medispec’s ED1000, a device that uses advanced acoustics technology.

EDSWT utilizes low-intensity extracorporeal shock waves, focusing on blood vessels and encouraging neovascularization in the penis shaft and base.

The low-intensity shock waves help relieve vascular deficiency, a common cause of erectile dysfunction.

How ED Shockwave Therapy Works

Erectile Dysfunction Shockwave Therapy (EDSWT) is generally a painless treatment that can potentially help men regain sexual desire and satisfaction.

EDSWT could be a viable option for you if:

  • You are willing to be less dependent on taking medications to have sex
  • You have experienced undesirable side effects of drugs or other treatments
  • You have not achieved satisfactory results with other ED treatments
  • You have health conditions that limit your options for treatment
  • You wish to have harder, longer lasting erections

The energy pulses in EDSWT are similar to sound waves.

There’s usually no discomfort during or after the procedure.

What to Expect During Treatment

Men receive their treatment at our New Westminster clinic. It’s delivered with a medical device that directs the energy waves to affected areas. Patients are asked to remove their clothing below the waist.

Our doctor or technician will move a wand over the base and shaft of the penis, focusing energy waves on the arteries in the corpora cavernosa.

Patients usually do not experience significant pain or discomfort during the treatment. Some may feel tingling afterwards – like you might after your hand or foot falls sleep.

There are no reports that show major risks or complications of shockwave treatment of the penis.

EDSWT takes under a half hour, making the appointment easy to schedule for working men. There is no downtime or recovery period and you can return to sexual activity immediately.

Typically, a full treatment schedule involves 12 visits to Pollock Clinics over the course of a few weeks.

Our Equipment - The ED1000 vs. Storz

Pollock Clinics’ ED shockwave treatment employs the ED1000, a proven medical device that emits low-intensity extracorporeal shock waves, focused on blood vessels and encouraging neovascularization in the penis shaft and base. The low-intensity shock waves help relieve vascular deficiency, a common cause of erectile dysfunction.

We chose the ED1000 among many available shockwave devices because of its strong history of results in erectile dysfunction treatment. Not all ED shockwave devices have a significant body of clinical data to support efficacy in ED treatment.

A review of seven ED treatment trials with shockwave therapy published in The Journal of Sexual Medicine found that the six trials that used the ED1000 significantly improved men’s sexual function.

The seventh trial, using a Storz device, did not show any impact. In fact, in the Storz trial, there was no significant difference found between the treatment group and the control group.

If you are considering shockwave treatment you may want to be sure what technology and type of machine is being used- as evidence shows it may make a meaningful difference in your treatment results and success.

Goals of Erectile Dysfunction Shockwave Therapy

Shockwave therapy helps improve the volume of blood flow into tissue with the goals of helping you achieve harder, longer-lasting erections.

Other treatments for ED, including pills only address the symptoms of the condition, and require significant planning and timing.

Shockwave therapy is an option that treats a physiological cause and requires no planning, pills, surgery, implants, and is non-invasive.

The ultimate goal of shockwave is to help you restore intimacy with your partner.
