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. 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 Does Acoustic Shockwave Therapy Help 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.
“I went to Dr. Bertolino for an embarrassing male issue. He offers a variety of treatments that other Dr’s will not offer anywhere else even close to WNY. He is very understanding and easy to talk to about your health issue. His only focus is to help you get the most out of the treatments. I got the most promising results to date compared to anything else I have tried. The staff is great too. You can communicate over the phone or email.”
Acoustic Shockwave Therapy FAQs
Who is a Good Candidate 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.
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.
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.
“I am a 79 years young physician. I took Shock Wave Therapy for Peyronie’s Disease and ED from Dr. Bertolino in Feb 2029. 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.”

“Like many men over 65, I had problems getting and keeping an erection. Resorting to the little blue pill to perform. Dr Bertolino suggested that I would be a good candidate for acoustic wave therapy. I trusted his judgement and decided to give it a try. Well it couldn’t have worked out better. I now feel like I’m back in my 20’s again! Only better! No more little blue pills! Not only do I not have any problems getting a firm/hard erection, I now last longer than I ever did! Thanks Dr. B, You were right!”
