Shockwave Therapy for Erectile Dysfunction

Non-Surgical Treatment for ED in Salt Lake City

Despite being a very common condition, many men become incredibly embarrassed and frustrated by their erectile dysfunction. Some may even experience daily struggles or a diagnosis of clinical depression as a result of untreated erectile dysfunction.

Fortunately, there are many treatment options available to men with ED, including Low-Intensity Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy.

How Does Shockwave Therapy for ED Work?

Although it’s title may sound a bit intimidating, shockwave therapy is actually a very simple process that focuses on improving blood flow to the penis. One major benefit that leads individuals to seek out shockwave therapy is that all treatments are completely non-invasive. Patients are expected to begin with a round of six shockwave treatments over the course of several weeks.

During these routine visits to Dr. Gange, he will utilize a machine that delivers controlled, focused shockwaves to the area. These electrical impulses will encourage growth of both existing and new blood vessels in the penis, which will help to clear away any plaque or other blockages to allow more blood to flow into the penis.

Once your session is complete, you will be able to return home and carry on with your day as usual. Patients should expect each of their shockwave therapy treatments to last approximately 30 minutes.

What Makes Shockwave Therapy an Effective Solution for Me?

A majority of erectile dysfunction cases lead back to an issue of poor circulation. This may be caused by an identified vascular condition, or the blood vessels may simply not work as well as they used to. Aging can have a hefty influence over this, because as we get older our circulatory system begins to naturally weaken as we decrease activity levels and require less and less blood flow throughout our body.

A key component to shockwave therapy is that it treats a natural condition in a way that allows for an equally natural outcome. Once treatment is complete, the goal is to get men back to enjoying firm, long-lasting erections that allow them to engage in a spontaneous sexual encounters in ways that medications would not.

I have seen Dr. Gange for a number of years and developed the typical symptoms associated with an enlarged prostate. During my annual urologist visit, Dr. Gange laid out my options. After doing some personal research, I elected to have the Urolift procedure performed by Dr. Gange on an outpatient basis.

The procedure was uncomfortable but not particularly painful compared to other surgeries I have had. Recovery was relatively quick and I was back at work after two days of rest.

I did experience some significant discomfort associated with urination but was counseled that I was not drinking enough water. Once I increased my consumption of water, most of the discomfort went away and I was back to normal after about two weeks.

In the wake of the surgery, the urgency to urinate has gone away. The interval between trips to the bathroom has lengthened significantly such that I usually get up to urinate only once each night and sometimes not at all.

Having talked with others who have had more drastic prostate surgery, I feel that the Urolift procedure was much less stressful and the results were as hoped for.
