Research Studies

acoustic wave reseaarchAcoustic Wave Therapy has been the first choice for treatment of erectile dysfunction in Europe for the last 15 years. It has only become available as an ED treatment in the United States since 2017. We are proud to be one of the few providers in Minnesota that can offer Acoustic Wave Therapy.

There have been over 40 studies on Acoustic Wave Therapy (Extracorporeal Shock Wave Treatment). We want you to be an educated consumer so have provided some articles documenting the research in Acoustic Wave Therapy. Most of the research studies originate in Europe or other parts of the world since it is a relatively new procedure here. As you will find in reviewing the data the procedure is safe and effective. Of course results vary from person to person, but It has been recorded that it is successful for ED in approximately 73-85% of participants.

Erectile Dysfunction is a serious problem on so many different levels. Please know that you are not alone. There is help and there is hope. The providers at the Acoustic Wave Clinic of Minnesota will work with you to identify the cause and help to find the solution or solutions to help resolve your issues. Please call us today!
