Erectile Dysfunction Treatment
By age 50, one half of the male population will experience moderate to severe erectile dysfunction. Over 70% of men over 40 with diabetes and heart disease will be affected. Most cases are caused by vascular abnormalities. Treatments in the past have attempted to improve the effects caused by this abnormality. Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (SWT) performed by the Zimmer Z Wave is the most effective treatment for erectile dysfunction available and has shown significant improvement in over 85% of cases.
How does Zimmer Z Wave work?
Sonic shock waves are produced and cause cavitation bubbles in the treated tissue which injures the cells. Plaque within the vessels are broken down, new blood vessels and nerves develop, and repair of the affected region occurs. The procedure is safe, effective, and requires no downtime. Peyronie’s disease and abnormal curvature of the penis caused by fibrosis of the tissue can also be treated.
What to Expect at Renovus Medical Spa
A free consultation with examination is performed in the office by our Board Certified physician. And if he determines that you would benefit from the procedure, you will be scheduled for a series of twice weekly treatments, each lasting about 30 minutes. Depending on the severity of your condition, 6-10 treatments are usually recommended as initial treatment and further treatments may be recommended. Occasionally hormone testing is recommended, and a “P” shot is sometimes performed at 4-week intervals in selected cases.
Most patients begin noticing improvement after 2-3 treatments and continue to improve.
