HSFC offering new shockwave therapy to treat erectile dysfunction

Posted by HSFCblog in News 02 Sep 2016

The Clinic is pleased to announce that it is now offering Erectile Dysfunction Shockwave Therapy (EDSWT), a new non-invasive treatment for Erectile Dysfunction.

The treatment uses pulsed sound waves which are applied to the treatment area using a machine called ED 100. This leads to the creation of new blood vessels which greatly increases blood flow. The treatment is pain-free and each treatment takes around 20 minutes over a 9-week period.

It is estimated that 2.3 million men in the UK suffer from erectile dysfunction, which can be caused by physical or physiological problems such as diabetes and heart problems – this is often referred to as vasculogenic ED. To date, there are a number of treatment options, the most common being; Viagra, vacuum pumps, injections and implants, however, there has been no conclusive method. EDSWT is the only curative technique, treating the root cause of the problem through the creation of new blood vessels.

For patients who are excluded from using pharmaceutical treatments due to their medical history or side effects from medication, EDSWT offers new hope for those suffering from erectile dysfunction. The treatment is performed by Mr Muneer, Consultant Urological Surgeon; “By inducing the development of new blood vessels, we are now able to supply more blood to the penis and essentially reverse erectile dysfunction. This will allow men to gain spontaneity back into their sex life again.”

Dr Venkat, Director at HSFC adds; “Since I first set up the clinic in 2010, our practice has grown significantly, helping couples to achieve their dream of starting a family. We are always very excited to be adding new service to our portfolio to help treat male infertility issues.”

Cricketing legend Sir Ian Botham recently revealed that he underwent shockwave therapy in a bid to raise awareness of the issue and encourage other men suffering from the condition to seek help.
