GAINSWave Q & A

What is Erectile Dysfunction?

Erectile dysfunction (ED) is the inability to get and maintain an erection that is firm enough for sex. While occasional issues maintaining an erection are normal, chronic erectile dysfunction can cause stress, decrease your self-confidence, and cause problems in your relationship.

ED may signal underlying health conditions that require treatment from your doctor. Often these conditions involve your heart and blood pressure and can be very dangerous. If you experience ED, the physicians at Dr. G’s perform a comprehensive exam and order specialized testing, if necessary, to determine the cause of your symptoms.

What Causes Erectile Dysfunction?

Getting and keeping an erection is related to the complex interaction between your brain, emotions, hormones, nerves, muscles, and blood vessels. ED can be the result of a problem with any of these factors. Stress and mental health concerns can also worsen ED, making it harder to get and maintain an erection.

In addition to stress, anxiety, and depression, ED has many physical causes, including:

  • Heart disease
  • Atherosclerosis
  • High cholesterol
  • High blood pressure
  • Diabetes
  • Obesity
  • Parkinson’s syndrome
  • Certain medications
  • Sleep disorders

 

Treatment for prostate enlargement and prostate cancer —  including surgeries in the pelvic area — can also disrupt blood flow to the penis, making it more difficult to get and keep an erection long enough to engage in sexual activities.

How is Erectile Dysfunction Treated?

To treat ED, the physicians at Dr. G’s Weight Loss & Wellness use GAINSwave® therapy, a form of high-frequency sound wave therapy. GAINSwave is a noninvasive treatment that uses sound waves to improve blood flow to the penis. Compared to other treatments on the market, GAINSwave doesn’t require medications or injections and can be performed painlessly in the office.

GAINSwave sound wave therapy improves blood flow to the penis by breaking up plaques in the blood vessels and stimulating the growth of new blood vessels in the penis. This makes blood flow to the penis more easily for a more comfortable, stable erection.

GAINSwave is primarily used to treat vasculogenic ED, though it can also help men with diabetes that contributes to their ED. It’s also a viable alternative to medications that treat ED and has been shown to be more effective than medication for treatment of ED related to Peyronie’s disease.

Treatments last 30-60 minutes and you can return to your normal routine the same day. You’ll generally need six to 12 treatments to see the best results. Results can last up to two to three years after treatment.
