Impotence, a term used interchangeably with erectile dysfunction, is an inability to get or maintain an erection sufficient to have satisfactory sexual intercourse. Many conditions, including diabetes, depression, neurological problems, and drugs, such as antianxiety and antidepressants, interfering with blood supply to the penis are the primary causes of impotence.
At NIVA Men’s Health, our highly qualified healthcare providers can help restore your vitality without surgery and medications. Read on to learn some of the innovative and nonsurgical treatment options we provide to treat your impotence.
Gainswave® Shockwave Therapy
Our men’s health experts recommend a type of sound wave therapy called GAINSWave®, also known as low-intensity extracorporeal shockwave therapy (LI-ESWT), to reverse the effects of impotence. It is safe and effective for men of all ages and can be performed at the convenience and privacy of our clinics.
Your doctor uses a small handheld device that gently runs along your penis’s skin during this therapy. The sound waves emitted from the device painlessly penetrate the skin to break up plaques in the blood vessels of your penis and increase blood flow to reverse impotence.
The sound waves used in GAINSWave® also stimulate the growth of new blood vessels and nerve tissues and eventually enhance sensitivity and sexual pleasure.
Penis pumps, also known as vacuum erection devices, are hand-powered or battery-powered pumps with hollow tubes. The hollow tube is placed over your penis, and then a hand or battery-operated pump is used to create a vacuum that helps pull blood into your penis. When blood flow in your penile blood vessels and you get an erection, a tension ring is slipped around your penis’s base to hold the blood in the vessels and keep the penis firm. This erection lasts long enough to have satisfactory sexual intercourse, and the constriction ring can be removed after intercourse.
Side effects of penis pumps include bruising on the penis and restricted ejaculation due to constriction ring.
P-shots use the body’s own healing power to stimulate the growth of new tissues. This therapy involves the use of platelet-rich plasma (PRP). During this procedure, the area of treatment is first numbed. The blood is drawn and centrifuged to separate different components of blood. The small volume of platelets and plasma is drawn off and divided into 5 separate injections, of which two injections are used along each side of the penis shaft and one in the penis head. For the next six weeks, you will be recommended to use penis pumps for 10 minutes daily to ensure the efficacy of p-shots.
Maximum benefits of therapy become noticeable three months after p-shots.
Testosterone Replacement Therapy
In some people, impotence or ED is often complicated by low testosterone levels in the body. In such patients, your doctor might recommend testosterone replacement therapy as a first step to treat impotence and later recommend other therapies.
