Low-Intensity Shockwave Therapy
for Erectile Dysfunction

Low-intensity shockwave therapy (LISWT), commonly known as GAINSWave or PulseWave, is a revolutionary erectile dysfunction (ED) treatment for men of all ages.

At Comprehensive Urology in Los Angeles, our team of urological experts is happy to teach ED patients about LISWT and determine if they qualify for shockwave therapy.

Pulsewave Therapy for ED


Shockwave therapy for ED is designed to help men improve their erections. It may be that it is too soft for penetration or too brief for penetration. It also helps men who struggle to achieve erections gain their potency back. Also, it can be used in any man without ED who wishes to improve the quality of his erections.

LISWT is a revolutionary treatment for ED that uses low-intensity sound waves to enhance blood flow to the penis. The treatment’s pulsating sound waves simultaneously remove micro-plaque, accelerate the growth of new blood vessels, and fix damaged blood vessels in the penis. This improves blood flow and stimulates dormant stem cells and growth factors in the penis. As a result, men who receive LISWT often can achieve stronger, harder, and more sustainable erections. Some report longer duration of intercourse and enhanced sensations as well.

Treating Erectile Dysfunction

ED is one of the most prevalent sexual problems reported by men. Studies indicate ED affects up to 30 million American men, and 52% of all American men experience ED at some point in their life. It is almost certainly under-reported as well.

Many ED treatments are currently available, and these include:

  • PDE5 Inhibitors: Consist of medications that increase nitric oxide levels in the penis, thereby making it easier than ever before to get and maintain an erection. Common PDE5 inhibitors include Cialis, Viagra, and Levitra. These medications are available with a prescription, but they may cause headaches, body aches and pain, digestive system issues, and other side effects.
  • TriMix Injections: Involves penile self-injections to address ED symptoms. TriMix injections usually consist of three drugs and can be administered prior to sexual intercourse. Side effects of TriMix injections include numbness, redness, swelling, tenderness, and lumps on the penis and its surrounding areas, also possible scarring.
The aforementioned ED treatments sometimes cause unwanted side effects. Also, if men are dealing with preexisting medical conditions, they may not be eligible for one or more of these treatments.

Comparatively, LISWT has minimal side effects and is available to men with preexisting medical conditions. It has been shown to help men address sexual dysfunction due to ED, age, and Peyronie’s disease (a condition that causes a significant bend in the penis).

Results from Low-Intensity Shockwave Therapy

LISWT offers a safe, effective, and non-invasive ED treatment for men of all ages. Research shows 70-80% of LISWT patients were able to alleviate their ED symptoms and stop using oral ED medications after treatment. Additionally, 75% of LISWT patients have reported enhanced sexual performance and other positive treatment results.

Research also indicates 70% of men who experienced ED reported a positive effect with LISWT after only six treatment sessions (twice per week). Among these men, 92% reported a positive response to LISWT for one year after initial treatment, and 55% maintained a positive response to LISWT for two years after initial treatment.
