Acoustic Shockwave Therapy for ED

What is Acoustic Shockwave Therapy (AWT)?

Acoustic shockwave therapy (also known as Acoustic Wave Therapy, or AWT) uses the energy from low-intensity shock waves to trigger a process called neovascularization in the penis. Dr. Bertolino is the only doctor in western NY to offer this innovative treatment, that was approved by the FDA in 2020. Neovascularization creates new blood vessels and new blood supply in the corpus cavernosum of the penile shaft, which improves and increases blood flow. Microtrauma is caused in the tissue that helps the body develop a new blood supply, this is called angiogenesis.

How Acoustic Shockwave Therapy Help’s with Erectile Dysfunction (ED)

Blood flow is the critical component of a man getting an erection. When a man is sexually stimulated, the arteries relax and open up. At the same time, veins close up. Now the penis fills with blood; the blood is what makes the penis firm. By building new blood vessels and improving blood circulation, acoustic shockwave therapy helps restore natural function without the need for reliance on ED pills.

What are the Benefits of Acoustic Shockwave Therapy?

Blood flow is critical to gaining and maintaining and erection. As men age, their circulation decreases as a natural byproduct of aging. This can lead to erectile dysfunction. For many men, there is a serious stigma to this and it can lead to issues with self-esteem. While pills for erectile dysfunction are effective, acoustic shockwave therapy may be able to return a patient’s ability to naturally gain erections without the ED treatment drugs.

Candidacy for Acoustic Shockwave Therapy

Men who have erectile dysfunction are good candidates for acoustic wave therapy with Dr. Bertolino. The process is well tolerated and non-invasive. It doesn’t matter if the patient is taking medication for erectile dysfunction or not.

“I am a 71 year old male that is suffering the normal degradation in performance in the bedroom. Dr. Bertolino performed the Acoustic Wave Therapy (EPAT) on me and it was definitely a success. The procedure was not painful and the Doctor was good about telling me what I could and could not expect for the outcome. I have to say I am very pleased with the results. My penis is definitely thicker, and erections are stronger. I would recommend it.”

How is Acoustic Shockwave Therapy ED Treatment Different from Viagra or Cialis?

ED treatment pharmaceuticals are a temporary solution to the problem. They dilate only existing blood supply for erections, they don’t create new vessels the way AWT does.

Why Do You Suggest Acoustic Shockwave Therapy with the P-Shot?

Acoustic Shockwave Therapy and the P-Shot complement one another. PRP helps develop new blood supply as well, giving a better, stronger result.

Is the Acoustic Shockwave Therapy Procedure Painful?

Dr. Bertolino has found six treatments, twice a week over three weeks, to be sufficient.

In May 2019, I noticed a certain improvement in softening of hardened tissues and reduction of angulation and definite return of erections – almost 80 % of normal. I definitely recommend this treatment from Dr. Bertolino to anyone with Peyronie’s disease and angulation with diminished erectile ability.”

“A lifelong athlete, I found my energy and recovery lagging as I approached 50. After receiving hormone replacement therapy, I felt energized again. My overall well being has improved dramatically. I followed up the hormone therapy with Acoustic Wave Therapy. I can describe the results with one word…WOW! I feel like a teenager again. I highly recommend Dr. Bertolino and his friendly staff for making me feel comfortable and welcomed. The results speak for themselves.”

Prime Time Performance for Men

The natural effects of aging on your body and mind can have serious consequences on your quality of life. A slowing metabolism and a decreased sexual appetite are just a couple of the realities that will affect you as you age.

Our bodies constantly adjust to the environment by interpreting signals sent to the brain. The hypothalamus area of the brain functions as the command center and sends hormonal signals to the pituitary gland. In response to hypothalamic signals, the pituitary gland sends out hormones to numerous tissues throughout the body to stimulate and fine tune their activity. Given the combination of aging and stresses of modern life, men often experience a decrease in sexual desire, stamina and performance.
