The Facts


Facts About Erectile Dysfunction in Fort Myers, FL

When it comes to treating erectile dysfunction, many men struggle to find factual information about the pros, cons, and complexities of different treatment options. Overwhelming amounts of information are available online; however, knowing which are factual and which are based on opinions can be difficult. To help you better understand your choices, here are a few quick facts about erectile dysfunction in Fort Myers, FL. 

Viagra, Cialis, and Levitra saw revenues totaling $4 billion in 2012, despite statistics that showed only half of the men that used their medications saw benefits. Not only that, such medications can have very unpleasant and potentially dangerous side-effects. In some scenarios, those side-effects made them not worth the risk. 

Many men with mild erectile dysfunction, even those with no erectile dysfunction symptoms at all, frequently take such medications as supplements to ensure strong sexual performance--even if they don’t necessarily need the boost. 

For men with severe erectile dysfunction, micro-penile injections comprised of three or four vasodilators are generally viable options. These medications have no side-effects when compared with oral medications, but may not be as preferable for many men due to the invasive nature of treatments.

New Treatments for Erectile Dysfunction 

Thanks to advances in modern erectile dysfunction research, a new potential treatment is now available. The SwissWave Protocol uses acoustic pulse waves to open existing blood vessels, grow new blood vessels, and stimulate stem cells to grow new erectile tissue (corpus cavernosum) in the penis. 

The SwissWave Protocol is a noninvasive option that stands to greatly alter the landscape of erectile dysfunction treatment. Independent, published research papers have proven its safety and efficacy. Of men receiving this treatment, 86% say they would recommend it to a friend. Results vary depending on many factors, including the patient’s overall health and preexisting conditions. 

Southwest Florida Medical Group believes that this therapy could actually roll back the clock for most men. It allows men up to age 80--or even age 90--to perform as they did in their more virile years. 

The SwissWave Protocol doesn’t require patients to undergo invasive injections, surgery, or ask them to remember daily medications. For the modern man, the SwissWave Protocol is an excellent alternative to other erectile dysfunction treatments that have been around for decades.

Likewise, this treatment is also beneficial for men suffering from Peyronie’s Disease, to which a buildup of scar tissue is broken down in order to help ease or eliminate the curvature of the penis. The end result allows for the regeneration of healthy, soft tissue, as well as better blood flow.
