If these symptoms continue to persist for a considerable period of time, consult your andrologist. Once you consult your healthcare team, they can diagnose ED by conducting: physical exam; psychological exam; blood test; urine test; ultrasound; nocturnal erection test. It is important for the doctor to try to understand the previous medical and sexual history of the patient, and thus the patient shall co-operate with the doctor by answering his questions.

  1. Changing the lifestyle
  2. Counseling
  3. Oral medication upon prescription- Sildenafil (Viagra); Tadalafil (Adcirca, Cialis); Vardenafil (Levitra, Staxyn); Avanafil (Stendra)
  4. Mechanical-energy treatment (Low-intensity shockwave therapy)
  5. Insertion of tiny alprostadil suppository inside the penile urethra
  6. Penile Injections (Prostaglandin E1)
  7. Penile pumps and penile implants

Erectile Dysfunction and Shockwave Therapy

Low blood-flow is the primary cause of ED. Shockwave therapy is used to increase the blood flow, by using low-intensity shockwave. This therapy has a mechanic energy effect on the tissue, and has been previously used to treat medical issues, such as diabetes, ulcers and heart ailments. When applied to the penis, these waves stimulate the growth of new blood vessels and break down plaque in the existing vessels.  This regenerates the erectile tissues in the penis, and increases the blood flow, producing better erection and reversing the condition of ED.

In today’s times, ED patients prefer shockwave therapy as the right treatment over any of the above-listed treatments, because it is:

  • Non-invasive (It does not cut the skin or physically enter the body)
  • Drug-free, no pumps, no injections
  • Painless.
  • Harmless and free from side-effects.

We are up-to-date with the needs of our patients, and thus, we can proudly claim to be the only leading hospital in Chandigarh which is technologically operational to provide shockwave therapy treatment for ED.
