New Understanding and New Treatments for Erectile Dysfunction

It has been said that the years between 2010 and 2020, may go down in history as the “Decade of Erectile Dysfunction.” Not because of an increase in the number of sufferers of ED, but because in the last five years, there have been astonishing breakthroughs in advanced treatments for erectile dysfunction, and current research suggests that the next five years will only deepen our understanding of this frustrating condition.

In fact, according to a recent report, “The Report on the Treatment of Sexual Dysfunctions,” not only has research into erectile dysfunction increased over the last few years, the guideline panel that created the report indicated that we should see new treatments available for ED this year, in 2016. The report was published by the Erectile Dysfunction, Premature Ejaculation and Low Testosterone Guideline Panel.

These new treatments provide a range of options. Even traditional pharmaceutical companies are focusing on developing new drugs that can be more effective, work quicker and have fewer side effects than the current oral ED drugs.

The report also indicated that in 2016, and in the years ahead, we should see increased emphasis on research into “natural” or Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) treatments for ED.

The report maintains that many of these new treatments may be just around the corner! That may be true, but why wait, when there are some amazing surgery-free, drug-free treatments for ED available right now!

Platelet Rich Plasma for ED

One relatively still new, but highly effective drug-free treatment for ED, involves the use of Platelet Rich Plasma, or PRP. PRP uses stem cells and the growth factors in your own blood to treat ED. Since PRP is derived from your own blood, there are no side-effects. Once applied via a pain-free injection, PRP increases blood flow to the penis, and stimulates the growth of new cells. Therefore, PRP is the only non-surgical ED treatment that not only improves and enhances your ability to obtain and maintain an erection, it also can increase penis size.

Soundwave Treatment for ED

The newest breakthrough in noninvasive treatments for men with ED uses sound waves! The technical term for this type of therapy is “extracorporeal shockwave therapy”, or ESWT, but many physicians and ED researchers are calling it “the new Viagra!”

Acoustical wave therapy is the only non-surgical treatment for ED that addresses its root causes. As you age, the vessels that supply blood to your penis break down, or become clogged with fatty deposits. This impedes blood flow. Prior to the introduction of ESWT for ED, the only way to correct this damage, was via a surgical procedure.

However, ESWT accomplishes the same thing non-invasively. The high frequency acoustical waves open up old blood vessels, and stimulate the formation of new vessels. The resulting improved blood flow, helps any man, and not just those with ED, to obtain stronger and more sustainable erections.

In our practice we have recently introduced a version of ESWT for ED called the GAINSWave™. Technology similar to this has been used to treat men with ED in Europe for over ten years, but the technique is very new in the U.S. In fact, we are the only practice in your area offering this remarkable ED treatment.  Unlike the shockwave therapy for ED used in Europe, which can be painful, the acoustical waves of the GAINSWave™ are practically painless. The GAINSwave is the only acoustical wave device approved by the FDA for the treatment of erectile dysfunction in the United States.

No man has to accept ED as an inevitable part of ageing, if you have been “let down,” by Viagra or other ED treatments, contact our offices to see if one of the latest treatments for ED is right for you!

I had been to several doctors over the years for my back pain. After my first visit to Dr. Schwartz, I was feeling better and after my third treatment the pain was gone.“
