Are you having trouble with erectile dysfunction? This condition is very common among men and is often underreported because it still carries a stigma. Erectile dysfunction, or ED, was long thought to stem from psychological issues, but today, research has revealed that physical causes such as diabetes, arteriosclerosis, vascular anomalies, and normal aging account for two thirds of cases.
Erectile dysfunction is defined as being unable to achieve an erection or maintain an erection strong enough for sexual intercourse for at least 4-6 months.
If you’re looking for a painless, non-invasive way to treat erectile dysfunction, Big Island Family Medicine can help. Zimmer’s GentlePro shockwave system can deliver longer, stronger erections with just a few treatments.
GentlePro Shockwave Treatment
GentlePro by Zimmer is a handpiece that delivers radial pulses of RF energy (radio waves) to the penis. The handpiece is run over the shaft of the penis as well as the genital area. The pulses stimulate the formation of new blood vessels (neoangiogenesis) and the enlargement of existing ones. The end result is more blood flowing to the penis, which creates stronger and longer erections.
After just one treatment, most patients report a significant improvement. 5-8 sessions are recommended, with each session lasting about 25 minutes and scheduled 2-3 times a week.
Advantages of GentlePro by Zimmer
The advantages of GentlePro by Zimmer over other erectile dysfunction treatments are:
- No down time
- User friendly
- No painful prostaglandin injections
- No risks or adverse effects
The program can be customized to each patient by altering the frequency, energy, and number of pulses to be emitted.
Don’t hesitate to seek treatment for erectile dysfunction. It is a common problem and nothing to be ashamed of. The team at Big Island Family Medicine can help you with cutting-edge erectile dysfunction treatments like GentlePro by Zimmer.
