Erectile dysfunction, commonly called ED, is the inability to achieve or sustain an erection long enough to have sexual intercourse.
There are numerous factors that can be associated with erection issues and ED such as, medications, various chronic illnesses, lack of blood flow to the penis, alcohol consumption or lack of energy or sleep. According to a July, 2010 study published in The Journal of Sexual Medicine, approximately 40 percent of men occasionally suffer from some form of erectile dysfunction.
Simple adjustments in lifestyle, medications and other alternatives may be used in the treatment of ED. From oral, topical or injected medications to vacuum devices or surgical methods, there are various treatment options that can be used to effectively restore sexual function.
The trained staff at Urology Experts provide patients with a thorough medical evaluation to create individualized treatment plans and recommendations for ED. Our experienced team of urology professionals strives to restore health and wellness to all of our patients.
Urology Experts now offer Neowaves therapy as one option to treat ED offered at our Fort Myers location.
NeoWaves therapy is a revolutionary male sexual performance procedure that uses low-intensity sound waves (also referred to as acoustic wave therapy) to improve sexual function in men, even if they suffer from Erectile Dysfunction.
The NeoWaves procedure breaks up plaque formation in blood vessels and stimulates the growth of new blood vessels in the penis. This increases the blood flow to the penis and improves sexual function. In addition, the NeoWaves procedure activates the growth of new nerve tissue in the penis.
This process, called neurogenesis, enhances sensitivity in the penis. Because NeoWaves uses low-intensity sound waves and is non-invasive, it is often referred to asLow-Intensity Shockwave Therapy (LiST).
