I can\'t afford the pricey clinical procedure so I bought my own machine for about $1000 and am documenting how I use it and the results here: shockwavefored.blogspot.com

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.

i ended up buying my own machine


Super interesting!
Where did you buy it, what\'s the name and how much did it cost?

And how often do you plan to use it?
(daily/weekly/monthly for a week/month/year)

There was an article on Web MD that described how nightly viagra for one year restored normal, permanent erections. www.webmd.com/erectile-dysfunction/news/...ore-normal-erections It\'s not shockwave therapy, but still relevant.

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.

shockwave therapy is actually en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lithotripsy

Great input!

I am also interested in this.

Where did you do it and what was the cost?
And the result?


I am in europe.
Is the search term \'Shock wave therapy\'?
There is www.shockwavetherapy.eu/ , but it\'s not about the penis.


www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3607492/

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.


-> so, the authors of this paper were from
Neuro-Urology Unit, Rambam Medical Center and Rappaport Faculty of Medicine, Technion, Haifa 34679, Israel.

Dr Kate Kass, drkatekass.com/erectile-dysfunction-treatment/ is offering GAINSWave'. It appears to be very similar the European Shock Wave Therapy.

I believe this machine is for ED. The Flaccid state is improved due to increased vascular formation. Might help after a Phalloplasty procedure but it is really for ED ...
