it was 25k, i plan on using it regularly and will also use it in my clinics. procedure costs will run 3k for 6 treatments and prescriptions for PDE5 inhibitors will be written to help increase blood flow and erections.
dr. oates had mentioned he had the device so i did some research and found out that shockwave therapy is not indicated for ED. here in the US but widely advocated in europe, canada and austrailia. i ended up buying my own machine, i have had 2 procedures and already notice a difference. evening and morning erections r more frequent and stronger. protocol indicates PRP on the 5th treatment.
Low-intensity extracorporeal shock wave therapy is a novel modality that has recently been developed for treating erectile dysfunction.
aims to restore the erectile mechanism in order to enable natural or spontaneous erections.
Results from basic science experiments have provided evidence that LI-ESWT induces cellular microtrauma, which in turn stimulates the release of angiogenic factors and the subsequent neovascularization of the treated tissue.
The results of our studies, which also included a double-blind randomized control trial, confirm that LI-ESWT generates a significant clinical improvement of erectile function and a significant improvement in penile hemodynamics without any adverse effects. Although further extensive research is needed, LI-ESWT may create a new standard of care for men with vasculogenic ED.
