A sexual wellness expert in Florida, Dr. Lisbeth Roy, is reporting success with a new treatment for erectile dysfunction (ED). The GAINSWave therapy is a non-invasive and drug-free procedure, which when combined with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy can deliver a knockout punch to ED.
Erectile Dysfunction: An Overview
Simply put, erectile dysfunction is a man’s inability to get or maintain an erection. It happens once in a while to every man, but when it occurs frequently and consistently, it merits medical attention. In older men, decreased blood flow to the penis due to narrowed blood vessels is the most common cause. In younger men, emotional issues are often the root cause.
Traditional treatments for erectile dysfunction consist of medications (Viagra, Cialis, Levitra), vacuum devices, penile implants, and surgery. Many of these treatments are unacceptable to men because they take the spontaneity out of sex.
Erectile Dysfunction: Statistics
A study on male aging in Massachusetts reported that 52 percent of men experience erectile dysfunction at least once in their life. The prevalence is higher in older men. In their 40s, roughly 40 percent of men are affected. In their 70s, prevalence increases to nearly 70 percent. The study data suggests that more than 600,000 men receive a new diagnosis of erectile dysfunction in the United States every year.
GAINSWave Therapy for Erectile Dysfunction
The GAINSWave therapy is a type of shockwave therapy that uses high-frequency sound waves to improve a man’s sexual performance. A healthy blood supply to the penis is essential for a strong erection. With age, a man’s blood vessels become clogged or collapsed. The pulsed acoustic waves help to improve blood flow by opening up existing blood vessels and stimulating the formation of new vasculature. Overall, the erectile tissue is rejuvenated, thus treating the root cause of the problem.
It is noteworthy that drugs like Viagra do not work for all men and produce disappointing results in others. With GAINSWave, clinics are reporting an 80 percent improvement rate in terms of the quality of erections, reduced time between orgasms, and improved sensitivity.
PRP Therapy for Erectile Dysfunction (P-Shot)
Dr. Roy, who practices in Boca Raton, Florida, has found that GAINSWave therapy works even better in conjunction with a treatment called the P-Shot. The P-shot harnesses the power of the patient’s own blood. A sample of the patient’s blood is processed in the laboratory to obtain platelet-rich plasma, which is a potent cocktail of growth factors. PRP works synergistically with the GAINSWave acoustic pulse treatment and enhances its effect. Combined together PRP and GAINSWave are delivering a knockout punch to erectile dysfunction.
