CHICAGO, March 24, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Agenixs, a premier anti-aging concierge medical practice in Chicago, is the first local medical practice to offer a new treatment for Erectile Dysfunction (ED) that is painless, non-invasive and drug-free.
GAINSWave™ utilizes the only acoustical wave device cleared by the Federal Drug Administration for the treatment of ED. The extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT) helps improve blood flow, reverse the damage that can lead to ED, and has proven twice as effective as Viagra and similar drugs used to treat ED, with none of the harmful side effects.
ED is a medical condition in which a man is unable to get or keep an erection and affects as many as 30 million men in the U.S., according to the National Institutes of Health.
Paul Savage, M.D., said the new procedure is an important step toward the treatment of ED.
"Many physical and psychological issues can lead to ED, including high blood pressure, diabetes and multiple sclerosis," he said. "As men age, the blood vessels of the penis break down and hinder good blood flow, essential to erectile function. This treatment actually breaks down the plaque and stimulates the growth of new blood vessels."
A study published in Therapeutic Advances in Urology concluded that the kind of technology used by GAINSWave™ "...possesses unprecedented qualities that can rehabilitate erectile tissue ...and may create a new standard of care for men with ED."
Paul Foster, 70, has heart disease and is unable to take oral medications for ED. "I've noticed a difference probably after treatment number five. I've also noticed I have more endurance," he said.
"Thirty percent of patients are off their pills within six treatments, and 60 percent are on a lower dose," Savage said.
Between six and twelve 30-minute treatments are recommended for lasting benefits. For more info, call (312) 981-4059 or visit www.agenixs.com.
