Erectile dysfunction is also known as ED. It is a medical condition in which a male cannot achieve or maintain an erection long or well enough to perform sexual intercourse. We live in a complicated and fast paced society, so today, there are many causes to erectile dysfunction. Read below to find out more about our Erectile Dysfunction treatment protocol.
The actual cause of ED has never been bogged down to one single specific issue. Some of the most common are causes to erectile dysfunction are cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure and diabetes. In addition, side effects from medication and excessive alcohol use can be causing some of these issues as well. Lastly, smoking has been cited another benefactor, in addition to the outside stresses that life can usher in. In the United States, an estimated 30 million men are reported to have some erectile dysfunction related issues. You are not alone. We’d like to introduce you to our various forms of ED treatment available at our Miami clinic.
What is the latest breakthrough in science to improve erectile function and/or treat erectile dysfunction effectively? It uses sound-acoustic shock wave therapy and is called GAINSWave. By applying sound-acoustic waves directly to the penis, we are able to break up micro-plaque that builds up within our penis blood vessels. This wakes up dormant growth factors that stimulate new tissue growth and angio-genesis (development on new blood vessels). It’s a non-invasive approach with “zero side effects” that could be done in less than 30 minutes. Results from GAINSwave therapy for erectile dysfunction could last two years or more.
You will experience stronger and firmer erections with more sensitivity while having intercourse. For years, this ED treatment has been very popular in Europe and now it’s an FDA cleared device in the USA. In our practice, this has been “hands down” the most effective approach and treatment to provide men stronger/firmer erections and help, once and for all. We are always delighted to hear our patients feedback from their ED treatment results. They report to be happier in their day to day lives, and for some, even rekindled their long ago “lost” sexual intimacy with their intimate partner.
As a man, there is nothing you fear more than not being able to perform while you are in bed with your partner. Not only can this be very frustrating and embarrassing, but it may worsen as you age.
Whether you are unable to achieve an erection or function is simply not what it once was, this may be classified as erectile dysfunction. Not to mention, a decrease in sexual function can be a detriment to not only your confidence but also your relationships. GAINSWave™ ED treatment can help any man seeking to improve their overall sexual function and performance.
Steady blood flow is the key to erectile function. As men age, the blood vessels in the penis deteriorate and fill with micro-plaque reducing blood flow to the penis. For over 15 years, ED treatment therapy similar to GAINSWave™ known as Shockwave therapy has been successfully used in Europe to help men with ED. However, it’s new to the U.S. and Canada.
GAINSWave™ therapy is an ED treatment that uses pulsed acoustic waves to open existing blood vessels. This pulse wave does not only open existing blood vessels, it stimulates the formation of new ones. The resulting improved blood flow helps any man, not only those with ED, to obtain stronger and more sustainable erections.
PDE5 inhibitors increase blood flow to the penis, causing an erection. Brand names you might be familiar with include Viagra, Cialis, Stendra, and Levitra. Other common ED treatments we use to treat erectile dysfunction is Caverject and/or Testosterone replacement therapy treatment. Low Testosterone in men is typically the leading cause of erectile dysfunction.
For those that do not respond well to traditional PDE5 inhibitor treatments, we offer a NEW peptide treatment. This peptide treatment has been another breakthrough in treating erectile dysfunction symptoms. It also alleviates dysfunction for those trying to enhance their sexual performance. Bremelanotide PT-141 (peptide) was developed from the peptide hormone Melanotan II. In initial testing, Melanotan II induced tanning. Additionally, it caused sexual arousal and spontaneous erections as unexpected side effects in 9 out of 10 original male volunteer test subjects. (Ref: Uni of Arizona Dr. Hunter Wells).
Furthermore, testing showed Bremelanotide to create further lordosis (curvature of the spine). In addition, it was also effective in treating sexual dysfunction in both men with erectile dysfunction or impotence. Thus, women with sexual arousal disorders saw improvement as well. Unlike Viagra and other related PDE5 inhibitor medications, this medication does not act upon the vascular system. What it does do is directly increases sexual desire via the nervous system. We have seen excellent results in both males with erectile dysfunction, and female patients who have used this medication.
One of the main contributing factors to erectile dysfunction is said to genetics. However, there is not enough evidence-based research data to support this.
Yes, they can both help through different mechanisms. Testosterone treatment not only increases blood flow and frequency of erections but also increases sexual desire. Progesterone increases an enzyme called 5-Alpha-Reductase that converts testosterone into DHT. In addition, DHT is a potent hormone in males and is responsible in part for a healthy libido.
