Shockwave Therapy for ED is a Game Changer – shares Dr. R. Robert Dhir, a 2022 ThreeBestRated® award-winning Urologist in Houston

Industry: Healthcare

Houston, TX (PRUnderground) August 1st, 2022

Dr. Dhir, founder of HTX Urology, takes pride in being the pioneer in the non-surgical management of erectile dysfunction (ED) using low-intensity focused shockwave therapy. He has over 5 years of experience in treating patients with this novel technology and has offered some tips for maximizing outcomes:

What is Shockwave Therapy Work?

“There are over 100 studies validating the positive effects of wave therapy in the medical literature”, notes Dr. Dhir. Using non-invasive, high-frequency acoustic sound waves directed at the penile tissues and nerve bundles, this technology treats the actual cause of ED at the cellular level by promoting new blood vessel formation (angiogenesis) and breaking up micro-plaque.

What is the Best Shockwave Therapy? Focused or Radial?

Only the highest quality Storz DuoLith SD1 focused shockwave therapy should be considered. “A quick Google search can be very confusing for patients – not all shockwave therapies are created equal”. Focused shockwave therapy is a far superior technology in comparison with Radial, which is more like a massage gun.

“Most men’s clinics are hoping a patient does not understand the difference, as radial machines are much cheaper”, says Dr. Dhir. When in doubt, ask the name of the machine used and avoid home machines. Focused machines will never require numbing creams or painkilling injections during treatment.

Are there any Side Effects?

Unlike medications, injections, or surgery, there are no side effects of shockwave therapy. “Treatments are under 10 minutes, do not cause any pain, and there is no downtime whatsoever”. Optimal therapy is once a week for 6 weeks; stronger erections last about 2-3 years before booster treatments may be needed.
