Do you treat erectile dysfunction in your patients on a regular basis? Well, it is likely that you will want to offer the best possible treatment for them. One treatment which seems to be gaining a lot of traction right now is Li-ESWT. We want to tell you what it is all about.
What is this treatment?
This treatment is all about delivering small acoustic waves to the base of the penis. Without going into the science of everything it, essentially, changes up the physiology of the penis. It allows more blood to flow into it and, more importantly, it allows the blood to stay there. This leads to stronger and longer lasting erections.
Is the treatment painful?
Not in the slightest! The name does stand for Low-Intensity Electro shockwave therapy. However, despite the relatively ‘scary’ sounding name, it is not painful at all. In fact, many doctors report that their patients are at ease during the treatment. It is incredibly comfortable, in fact. The treatment only takes about 20 minutes per session, and the most invasive it gets will be when the doctor needs to attach the probes to the base of the penis.
How effective is the treatment?
Obviously, you do not want to offer a treatment to your patients unless you know it is going to be effective, right? You have probably seen treatment method after treatment method just not work for your patients, causing them a great deal of irritation. Thankfully, that is not an issue that you will need to be worried about with this shockwave therapy. Based on preliminary studies, it has a near 100% success rate.
Of course, it is probably worth noting that this success rate is only there for those who are suffering from erectile dysfunction for physiological reasons. It is not going to work if the erectile dysfunction is down to psychological reasons. However, as a doctor, you will know that these are the minority of cases so it should not be that much of an issue.
How long does the treatment last?
Based on current studies, it seems that the treatment can last months. In fact, it could probably last a longer than that. You will need to undergo regular sessions for a short while, but after that, it seems like the patient is effectively cured of their erectile dysfunction. It does not return. This is one of only a few treatments on the market which can offer this, which makes it fantastic!
This is all because this treatment aims to change up the physiology of the penis. It is not a ‘band aid’ that just masks the problem for a short while, it is a treatment which has been designed to work on a long term basis, and you will be hard-pressed to find a treatment which even comes close to how effective this is.
