1. What is EDSWT?
Erectile Dysfunction Shock Wave Therapy (EDSWT), delivered by Medispec ED1000, is a clinically proven breakthrough therapy for erection problem.
2. How does the technology work?
EDSWT - designed especially for problems of Erectile Dysfunction (ED) - is based on the use of low intensity extracorporeal shock waves, which have been used successfully since 2005 in the treatment of ischemic heart disease, improving the volume of blood flow supplying the heart. The shock waves are reflected by the machine and are focused onto the treatment area, creating new blood vessels in penile tissue, which then enables the patient to achieve and maintain firm erections.
3. How is shock wave therapy different from other ED treatments?
Shock wave therapy is a painless, non-invasive, non-side effects and non-pharmacological procedure that triggers a natural mechanism that actually fixes ED problems due to poor blood supply to penis, rather than just treating the symptoms. Unlike other therapies that utilize drugs or vacuum pumps, injections or implants - EDSWT has no detrimental effect on any systems or organs of the body and is a long lasting solution.
4. Who performs the EDSWT?
Trained medical doctors perform the procedure.
5. How safe is the treatment?
The treatment is completely safe. It is non-invasive and does not involve the use of any medications. There are no reported side-effects during, immediately following, or post-treatment. Patients are able to return to their daily routines immediately following each treatment session.
6. Is the treatment effective?
Yes, the treatment work for almost everyone whose ED problems are related to poor blood supply - around 70% of those with ED. Extensive clinical trials have shown significant improvement in erectile function one to two years following the treatment. The therapy even enables patients with severe ED - for whom medications have had no effect and whose only choices were vacuum pumps, injections and implants - to become responsive to PDE5 Inhibitor (e.g. Viagra) treatments.
7. Where is the treatment performed? Is hospitalization required?
The treatment is performed in a medical clinic and conducted in a private room, with only the doctor present. No hospitalization is required.
8. Do I need to abstain before receiving treatments?
9. Will I get injected or sedated before receiving treatments?
The non-invasive, painless EDSWT procedure requires no sedation or anesthesia.
10. What will I feel during the therapy?
The therapy causes no pain and discomfort as it uses low-intensity shock waves which is non-invasive and help to relieve problem with poor blood supply, a common cause of erectile dysfunction. Some patients have reported a slight tingling sensation during the treatment that disappears as soon as the treatment session ends.
11. How long will the treatment take?
It takes approximately 20 minutes per session. The entire treatment protocol consists of several sessions, which are conducted over few weeks of time.
12. When can I see the immediate result?
Improvement in the erectile function of the penis can be visible within two weeks after therapy begins. Clinical studies reported that patients experienced high rate of satisfaction for more than a year following treatment - without dependence on PDE5 Inhibitors.
13. Will the treatments need to be repeated in future?
No additional treatments are required following the initial series of treatments. However, the treatment can be repeated as often as necessary, since it is non-invasive, painless and there are no side effects.
