How GAINSWave® Can Treat Your Erectile Dysfunction

If you’re struggling with erectile dysfunction (ED), you’re in good company. At least half of men over 50 and about 70% of men in their 70s suffer from this disorder. Many of these men don’t talk to their doctor about the issue, or if they do, they're told to take oral medication or get invasive injections. 

At Urology Associates Medical Group, our team of providers, led by urologist Philip Weintraub, MD, has a better solution. 

Drug-free, noninvasive GAINSWave® is revolutionizing the treatment of ED for our patients in Burbank, California. If you’re struggling with ED, we can help you enjoy sex again with this fast and pain-free treatment. 

Here’s a look at how GAINSWave can help you. 

Why do I have ED?

Many different systems must come together for you to get and maintain an erection. Your emotions, your muscles, your hormones, your brain, your nerves — all of these are key to your sexual health. 

Your blood vessels play one of the largest roles since blood flow is central to erectile function. As you age, your blood vessels become weaker and sometimes lined with plaque. This can make getting an erection difficult. 

Other underlying issues can also affect the way blood flows in your body and contribute to erectile dysfunction. These include: 

Certain medications can also cause ED, as can other medical conditions that interfere with the blood vessels’ ability to deliver the blood needed for erectile performance. Sometimes addressing these underlying concerns can help or resolve sexual dysfunction. 

If you’re experiencing chronic erectile struggles, talk to your provider at Urology Associates Medical Group for an accurate diagnosis.

What is GAINSWave? 

GAINSWave restores blood flow to your penis using pulsed acoustical wave technology. These extracorporeal (outside the body) low-intensity shock waves break up the plaque in your blood vessels that contributes to ED in the first place. 

When plaque builds in the blood vessels that serve the penis, it becomes more difficult to get and maintain a hard erection. It can also create a lack of sensitivity in your penis, making it challenging to orgasm. 

While other treatments only increase blood flow for a short time, GAINSWave heals the underlying problem. The acoustic waves trigger your body’s natural healing processes, increasing production of stem cells and other growth factors in the damaged tissues. 

This helps new blood vessels form around the base of your penis in a process called revascularization. The result? Increased blood flow so you can have normal erections again. 

GAINSWave sessions last about 20 minutes, and most men benefit from 6-12 treatments to obtain optimal results. Your provider at Urology Associates Medical Group evaluates your unique case to create a customized treatment plan for you. 

There’s no pain, and you can return to your normal activities right away, including sex. Your results last for 2-3 years, and you can get additional treatments as needed to maintain your results. 

The best part? GAINSWave has a high success rate without any side effects and no downtime required.
