50% of men older than 40 are affected by Erectile Dysfunction (ED)

EPAT/Radial Pressure Wave Therapy targets the major underlying cause of ED:  Decreased Blood Flow

What is erectile dysfunction (ED)?

Erectile dysfunction (ED) is a very common medical condition that occurs when a man is unable to maintain an erection sufficient for satisfying sexual activity.  In the USA, ED affects 30+ million men with statistics increasing with age. More than 80% of all ED cases are thought to be related to physical factors (not psychological factors as once thought) especially POOR BLOOD FLOW.

Many chronic diseases including diabetes, cardiovascular disease, atherosclerosis and lifestyle choices such as smoking, excessive drinking and drug abuse all can significantly affect blood flow.

Most men are reluctant to discuss ED with their physician.  Men not only struggle with the physical condition but also the psychological and emotional issues; decreased self-esteem, masculinity, and self-confidence. It may also lead to the deterioration of their sexual and overall relationship with their partner.

What are the treatment options for ED?

Conventional treatments for ED include oral medications (Viagra, Cialis, Levitra), injections (Caverject, Trimix), vacuum pumps and surgical implants. These treatments offer only a temporary solution and can have significant side effects, with diminished effectiveness over time and decreased spontaneity.

 

EPAT (Extracorporeal Pressure Activation Technology) is a cutting edge regenerative medicine procedure that helps to restore erectile health and function, helping men regain a spontaneous, active sex life.

EPAT is also referred to as Radial Pressure Wave Therapy, Radial Shockwave Therapy and Low Intensity extracorporeal shockwave therapy (LiESWT).  Powerful acoustic/pressure waves are generated and applied to the body to treat injured tissue.  Micro trauma is created in the treated area which stimulates the body’s natural healing response and the growth of new blood vessels for improved blood supply.

 

This technology has been used in Europe for 25+ years for orthopedic soft tissue injuries and 10+ years for erectile dysfunction with very good results. There are over 40 research studies supporting the effectiveness of pressure wave/shockwave therapy for erectile dysfunction.

What is Peyronie's disease and can it be treated with EPAT/pressure wave therapy?

Peyronie's disease is a condition of fibrous scar tissue that develops inside the penis and can cause curved, painful erections which can make sex difficult and lead to erectile dysfunction.

The cause of Peyronie's disease isn't completely understood, but a number of factors appear to be involved. It's thought Peyronie's disease generally results from repeated injury to the penis. For example, the penis might be damaged during rough sex, athletic activity or as the result of an accident.  However, most often, no specific trauma to the penis is recalled.

Peyronie's disease sometimes goes away on its own. But in most cases, it will remain stable or worsen. Treatment might be needed if the curvature is severe enough that it prevents successful sexual intercourse. Current treatment includes a watchful waiting approach, oral medications and surgery.

EPAT/Radial Pressure Wave Therapy can be helpful for Peyronie's disease as the pressure waves have been shown to be beneficial in treating fibrotic conditions in the body including calcific tendinitis in the shoulder.

Benefits of EPAT/Radial Pressure Wave Therapy:

  • Non-Invasive, Drug Free, Non-Surgical

  • No side effects

  • 15-20 minute relatively painless procedure

  • 75% success rate for ED 

What is the Treatment Protocol?

Treatments are individualized and based on the severity of ED:

Mild to moderate ED Basic Protocol:  6 total treatments (2/week x 3 weeks or 1/week x 6 weeks).

Moderately severe to severe ED Extended Protocol:  2 cycles of the Basic Protocol with a 3-4 week rest period after the initial 6 treatments.

Sexual performance enhancements (No clinical diagnosis of ED): 1 to 3 treatments (1/week)

Peyronie's disease (only): 3 to 8 treatments (1/week) depending on the severity

What is the Cost of EPAT/Radial Pressure Wave Therapy?

  • Basic Protocol for ED (6 treatments):

    • $500 for the Initial Visit, includes Clinical Evaluation, Treatment #1, Vacuum Pump and lubricant

    • $400 per visit for treatments 2 through 6

 

  • Extended Protocol for ED (6-12 treatments):

    • $500 for the Initial Visit, includes Clinical Evaluation, Treatment #1, Vacuum Pump and lubricant

    • $400 per visit for treatments 2 through 6

    • $300 per visit for treatments 7 through 12

 

  • Peyronie's Protocol (3-8 treatments):

    • $500 for the Initial Visit, includes Clinical Evaluation, Treatment #1, Vacuum Pump and lubricant

    • $300 per visit for treatments 2 through 8

    • For Peyronie's + ED: Same price as for Basic Protocol/Extended Protocol for ED

  • Periodic Maintenance:

    • $300 per visit

What results can I expect?  How long do the results last?

Research studies show that shockwave technology is more than 75% effective in improving the quality of erections for men with vasculogenic (blood flow related) erectile dysfunction.  Some men are early responders and will note improvement after the 1st or 2nd treatments.  But, the growth of new blood vessels takes time and significant improvements are usually seen between 4-12 weeks after each treatment.  Effects have been shown to last at least 2+ years but varies with individual health and lifestyle factors.  Periodic maintenance has been shown to be beneficial.
