July 2017: Study shows Shock Wave improves ED symptoms and blood flow studies. Click Here

November 2017:  Article

2017: Here is a recent summary of studies showing effectiveness of ShockWave (Acoustic wave). Click Here

Update 2016: Our experience  is similar to the reported data, with the majority of men reporting improvement after the therapy. The degree of improvement varies, so we ask men to set expectations. We have treated men from severe to milder ED.

UPdate 2: Newer data indicates that of men who don't respond well to a first treatment protocol with Shock Wave, 33% of them responded to a second series of treatments. We understand this is a leap of faith. If requested, we offer a second series, or customized series, within a year, at a discounted rate. See PRICING options above.

Update 3: A newer study indicates that Shock Wave, if administered early enough after prostate removal surgery, can help minimize ED. We have seen postive results as well.

With an aging population, Canada, including Toronto, is seeing more and more men identifying erectile dysfunction as a more prominent health concern. People are living longer and healthier, so intimacy is desired even further into the life cycle than in previous generations.  Men in Toronto have been utilizing shock wave therapy for years for various medical ailments.  How do Shock wave therapy and erectile dysfunction relate to each other?

Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT) has been used medically to promote healing of bones, and other orthopedic strains.  Shock Wave Therapy has also been used to treat kidney stones.  At low intensity, Shock Wave Therapy can promote the generation of new blood vessels.  This Low Intensity Shock Wave Therapy (LISWT) has been used to treat heart conditions, chronic wounds, and peripheral nerve problems, because of this property.  

 

The idea that Low Intensity Shock Wave Therapy could help treat Erectile Dysfunction (ED) came from this idea of promoting the growth of new blood vessels in the penis.  The logic being, that the subsequent improvement of blood flow to the erectile tissues from shock wave therapy should improve erection quality.   Studies have shown that this theory as it pertains to Erectile Dysfunction and Shock Wave Therapy is true.

 

Men with erectile dysfunction who underwent a series of treatments with Low Intensity Shock Wave Therapy significantly improved their erections and their ability to have intercourse.  And the blood flow measurements in the penis were much improved as well.  Shock wave therapy is more effective in men who have a Vascular cause for Erectile Dsyfunction as opposed to Neurogenic Erectile Dysfunction (prostate surgery etc.).  Vascular causes of ED are often high blood pressure, diabetes, vascular disease, high cholesterol, or just lazy dysfunctional vessels.  Vascular and Neurogenic ED often co-exist though. 

 

When used to treat Erectile Dysfunction, Low Intensity Shock Wave Therapy has been referred to as Erectile Dysfunction Shock Wave Therapy 

( EDSWT ).

 

With the Duolith Ultra Focus SD1 device, shock waves can be delivered at varying depths and intensity.  These waves trigger the body's natural repair mechanism.  This leads to the generation of a new blood supply. A very exciting new way to treat erectile dysfunction.

 

Shock wave therapy as a treatment for Erectile Dysfunction is approved in over 20 countries worldwide, including Canada. The European Association of Urology has listed shock wave therapy as a first line therapy for ED.  We are very excited to be able to bring this treatment to men in Toronto and other parts of Ontario.

 
From the Journal Therapeutic Advances in Urology:

 "LI-ESWT is a revolutionary treatment of ED, and probably possesses unprecedented qualities that can rehabilitate erectile tissue. The clinical improvement in subjective erectile function together with the significant improvement in penile hemodynamics following LI-ESWT confirm that LI-ESWT has unique properties that may create a new standard of care for men with ED. LI-ESWT is both feasible and tolerable and without any adverse or unwanted effects. Its main advantage is its ability to improve and potentially restore erectile function in men with ED without additional pharmacotherapy.”
 (Gruenwald et al, Therapeutic  Advances in  Urology . 2013 Apr; 5(2): 95–99. )

 

Shock Wave Therapy can also be used to treat Peyronie's Disease, and Chronic Pelvic Pain relating to Prostatitis.

Studies have shown that as up to 80% of men improve their erectile function and quality of life with Shock Wave therapy using the Duolith SD 1 device.
 
For some men with Erectile Dysfunction who had not responded to medications such as sildenafil (Viagra), tadalafil (Cialis), or vardenafil (Levitra), after Shock Wave Therapy   ( EDSWT ), their Erectile Dysfunction did respond favourably to these treatments.  
 
For other men, after Erectile Dysfunction Shock Wave Therapy, they didn’t require medication to perform anymore.  In the initial studies, men who’s Erectile Dysfunction had responded to Erectile Dysfunction Shock Wave therapy ( EDSWT ), still reported erections sufficient for intercourse even after 2 years.
 
Men with Erectile Dysfunction caused by vascular disease or diabetes, will especially find Erectile Dysfunction Shock Wave Therapy to be a novel and effective treatment.
 
And men in Toronto will be glad to know that Low Intensity Shock Wave Therapy for Erectile Dysfunction is a painless and non-invasive treamtent for ED.
 
Erectile Dysfunction Shock Wave Therapy  for ED has been previously available in Toronto as Medispec ED 1000, and in 2015 is now available as Duolith SD 1 Ultra Focus.   This exciting new technology offers the same great benefits, with a shorter and less frequent treatment protocol than with previous shock wave machines.   The Duolith SD Ultra Focus device delivers low intensity shock wave, and Toronto men of all ages suffering from Erectile Dysfunction now have access to this exciting new treatment.
 
At Ontario Men’s Health Clinic in Toronto, we can evaluate ED, and make suggestions for therapy.  If a man is interested in Low Intensity Shock Wave Therapy as a treatment for erectile dysfunction, we are happy to consult with him at our clinic, to discuss this.  There is no fee to come in to discuss this treatment option.
 
Erectile Dysfunction Shock Wave Therapy ( EDSWT or LISWT ) has been described as a “revolutionary” new treatment for Erectile Dysfunction ( ED ), as it has the potential to improve the problem in a lasting manner.
 
Low Intensity Shock Wave therapy for Erectile Dysfunction is currently not a covered benefit under OHIP in Ontario, or in other jurisdictions in Canada. Still, many men in Toronto and all over the world, are seeing that Low Intensity Shock Wave Therapy for ED is a valuable investment in their health and personal well being.
 
Call our Toronto Clinic today, to discuss Erectile Dysfunction Shock Wave Therapy and other treatments for ED.  You are welcome to book a consultation with our medical consultant (OHIP covered) to discuss your Erectile Dysfunction treatment options.

My wife and I were getting along OK, but we had slipped into a routine of avoiding sex because it was awkward for both of us when I couldn't perform. We just put it down to age and moved on. One day I just decided to look into it further, and let me tell you, don't let anyone tell you that you need to give up sex just because of your age. Our life is much more complete now than it has been in years. Get help today. My wife and I are so glad we did.

Last year I decided not to renew my gym membership. I didn't see the point since I didn't feel like going anymore, and I was annoyed that when I did drag myself there I couldn't lift as much weight or spend as much time on the equipment. At work I was always in a bad mood. I noticed that everyone, including my family avoided talking to me any more than necessary, but actually this suited me fine because I didn't really enjoy talking to them. On Valentine's day I bought my wife some lingerie out of habit. She smiled and said "What's the point of this?" I realized then that it had been months since my wife and I had had sex. I hadn't even noticed. Soon after that my kids confronted me at dinner and told me I was always grouchy. Luckily it was time for my annual check-up so I asked my doctor about all this. He suggested that we check my testosterone level. I was surprised there was a name for my problem: Andropause. After a trial of treatment with testosterone medication I was amazed at the difference in my energy level, my sex drive, and my outlook on life.
