Acoustic Wave Therapy or Shockwave Therapy, is a non-invasive medical procedure employing high-frequency sound waves to stimulate the body’s natural healing processes. AWT & SWT has proved effective for the treatment of Erectile Dysfunction (ED) by improving blood flow. 


Shockwave therapy, a noninvasive treatment that applies extracorporeal shock waves to the penile shaft, can provide mild to moderate improvement in patients with erectile dysfunction of varying etiologies, including vascular, neurogenic, and procedural causes. It can also benefit patients for whom previous medical therapies were not effective. (Strength of Recommendation: A, meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials [RCTs] and four RCTs.)

Peak Male Institute offers acoustic wave therapy as an option for patients suffering from ED. Acoustic wave therapy is typically recommended for patients who do not respond well to medication or do not want more invasive treatments.

Acoustic wave or Shockwave therapy for ED is still considered an experimental treatment option. There is much data to support its efficacy, but research is ongoing to determine how well it works long-term and whether it can replace or be offered along with other proven ED treatments.

Why Should Patients Consider Shockwave Therapy?

Shockwave Therapy, also known as Pulsewave Therapy, is the latest ED treatment. It uses pulsed low-intensity radio waves to stimulate vascular tissue to increase blood flow. Blood is the healing element of the body, so increasing blood flow to the penis helps to rebuild the vascular tissue. Shockwave therapy for erectile dysfunction can also stimulate nerve endings, making the penis more sensitive to physical contact during sexual intercourse–which, in turn, helps with achieving and maintaining the erection.


Erections require a sufficient blood supply, and anything that limits blood flow to the penis — such as cardiovascular disease and diabetes — can lead to ED.

With acoustic wave therapy, a physician uses a wand-like device to deliver mild shockwaves to the penis. Studies have found that the treatment is associated with a growth of new blood vessels and (in animal studies) recruitment of stem cells to the penis.

In a recent meta-analysis of 10 randomized controlled trials involving a total of nearly 900 men with vasculogenic ED, researchers reported that, compared with sham treatment, acoustic wave therapy resulted in significant improvements in measures of erectile function and penile blood flow.


For men with vasculogenic ED, we administer acoustic wave therapy once a week for six weeks, although the ideal treatment protocol has yet to be determined. Each treatment session lasts about 15 minutes. No anesthesia is necessary, and for upwards of 95% of patients, the procedure is painless.


Generally, men with mild to moderate vasculogenic ED who have had some response to PDE5 inhibitors are ideal candidates for acoustic wave therapy. Other men, such as those with nerve damage due to pelvic cancer surgery and those with ED resulting from psychological causes, typically don’t respond to the treatment.

Although acoustic wave therapy has a long track record in medicine, its use for treating ED in the United States is relatively new. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration hasn’t approved it specifically for ED, and guidelines from the American Urological Association note that acoustic wave therapy shouldn’t be offered outside of a clinical trial — a position with which our team disagrees.

Furthermore, for ED, insurance coverage of acoustic wave therapy is lacking. In some practices, the treatments can cost thousands of dollars.

For the right patient who’s counseled the right way, it’s a low- to zero-risk treatment that may have surprisingly good effects. If it doesn’t break the bank for you to have this therapy, it’s certainly worth considering.

I have been a patient now at Peak Male Institute for about a year. I can report that it has been one of the best decisions I have ever made. After taking a brief survey I had a consultation with one of the health professionals in the office. Dr. Ron explained what the process would entail and what to expect. After a through examination and review of my test results a DETAILED and easy to follow plan was developed for me. The key here is the plan is PERSONALIZED for ME. This isn’t some generic health plan pulled off the internet. It was tailored to me. I feel like a new person and have benefited from the program greatly. I have now lost over 85 lbs and feel amazing. One of the best things about the office is the knowledgeable and friendly staff. From recommendations and periodic adjustments made during my checkups, to questions and answers fielded by Dr. Michelle (a true EXPERT) make Peak Male Institute special. I have NEVER had a call or question go unanswered and the polite and professional demeanor of all the staff is incredible. While traveling last year, Dr. Ron provided his cell phone number to me and told me to call him anytime if I had any issues. That is more than just service. That is care. If I could give higher than 5 stars I would! Thank you speak Male Institute for giving me my life back!

Everyone here cares about you. They go through your blood work and tell you exactly what you need. I went to my doctor's before and told them, I have no energy like I use to, no drive, and they said it's all about aging. Not here they take of you. Doctor Ron is the best. From the front of the house to the back they care.

Dr. Ron is awesome. Started with him in 2020. Got me feeling like I was in my 20s again. With each test, we custom tailored my treatment for even better results. You'll feel amazing your first week, and it only gets better in my experience.

After some very thorough blood work and a consultation, I was given several options for treatment. I made a decision several days later and started my treatment. About 30 days into it I'm feeling more energetic, less moody and over all more focused. I have received several follow up phone calls and encouraged to call anytime I have any questions or concerns.Feeling Great!!
