Since the male penis is not a muscle, good perfusion of the corpus cavernosum is extremely important and significantly contributes to the male erection. With shockwave treatment, it is possible to significantly promote increased perfusion and stimulate the formation of new vascular structures at the same time. The radial shockwaves, which are emitted on the shaft of the penis as well as on the area around the genitals, support the natural stimulation of the area to be treated, particularly in the case of erectile dysfunction due to vascular causes. Even patients with severe erectile dysfunction who are taking so-called PDE-5 inhibitors achieve significantly better therapeutic success. Depending on the degree of erectile dysfunction, an average of about 5 to 8 treatments are needed to achieve a lasting improvement in the erection. Shockwave therapy takes up to 25 minutes and should be performed 2–3 times per week.
