Is GAINSWave® A Viable Treatment for Peyronie's Disease?
Many men are reluctant to discuss sexual health out of fear or judgment. However, ignoring Peyronie’s disease and erectile dysfunction (ED) can have long-term consequences. You may experience emotional distress or even anxiety in your personal relationships. The professionals at Atlanta Medical Institute understand the challenges related to ED. This is why we offer GAINSWave as a minimally-invasive treatment in Atlanta, GA.
So, how does GAINSWave treat Peyronie’s disease? With this procedure, patients won’t have to take pills or undergo surgery. Instead, GAINSWave strengthens the blood vessels in the penis through acoustic wave therapy. If you have been diagnosed with erectile dysfunction or a similar condition, request an appointment with Dr. Jeff Semel. We help men experience stronger and longer-lasting erections.
About Peyronie’s disease
Erectile dysfunction occurs when a man cannot maintain an erection during sexual performance. Peyronie’s disease is one common cause of ED. This occurs when fibrous scar tissue changes the function or appearance of the penis. Men with Peyronie’s disease may notice a painful curvature of the penis, which makes sexual intercourse challenging or even impossible. Peyronie’s disease ranges from mild to severe and could worsen over time if not addressed by a medical professional.
Symptoms of Peyronie’s disease
During a private appointment with Dr. Semel, our office will learn about your personal health history to see if you have Peyronie’s disease. Some of the most common symptoms of this form of erectile dysfunction in Atlanta, GA include:
Scar tissue buildup: Hard lumps or bands of tissue may appear underneath the skin of the penis
Penis curvature: You may notice a significant bend in the penis, either with or without an erection
Misshapen penis: Some portions of an erect penis may seem narrow in some areas, resembling an hourglass shape
Penis pain: You may experience discomfort or pain in the penis, either with or without an erection
Treating Peyronie’s disease with GAINSWave
Advanced GAINSWave treatment can reduce fibrous scar tissue and provide relief from the symptoms associated with ED and Peyronie’s disease. GAINSWave uses acoustic wave therapy to remove microplaque and open blood vessels in the penis, resulting in stronger and more sustainable erections. Treatment can even stimulate new blood vessels to grow. With this procedure, there are no expensive prescriptions to refill or pills to take. Patients do not have to resort to painful procedures as well. Other benefits include:
Improved sexual performance
Enhanced appearance of the penis
Increased sensation and pleasure
Does GAINSWave hurt?
GAINSWave treatment at Atlanta Medical Institute should not cause discomfort or pain. Our staff begins treatment by applying a special topical cream. Once patients are prepared for GAINSWave, we use a handheld device that emits acoustic wave therapy. The session does not take long to complete, and most people can return to their everyday routines afterward. We then provide instructions and guidelines for taking care of the treatment site at home. Follow-up GAINSWave sessions may be scheduled as needed.
