What is erectile dysfunction?

Erectile dysfunction (ED) is a common type of male sexual dysfunction. It occurs when a man has trouble getting or keeping an erection. ED becomes more common as a man gets older, but it does not have to be a part of natural aging – there are treatments available. ED can be helped with pills, increased exercise, losing weight and cessation of smoking.

Erectile dysfunction is actually quite common in men of all ages. 52% of men, ages 40 to 70, have some degree of erectile dysfunction. 1 in 10 men cannot get an erection at all.

How does a man get an erection?

When a man is sexually excited, by either sexual thoughts or direct contact, the muscles in the penis relax and allow for increased blood flow through the penile arteries. As the penis fills with blood, it becomes erect and rigid. ED occurs when the blood fails to adequately flow into the penis.

What erectile dysfunction treatments are available?

A variety of pills such as Viagra, Cialis, Stendra and Levitra are often prescribed by a urologist or family practitioner. Downsides of treatment include lack of spontaneity, expensive cost of the medications, and potential progression of the dysfunction to the point that medication no longer offers benefit – even at escalated doses.

Medical devices such as vacuum devices also offer treatment but are often difficult to use, require planning and an understanding partner.

Injection of medications directly into the penis also offer men a chance to get an erection. Once again, this requires planning and a risk of an erection that will not go away after several hours.

Pressure wave erectile rejuvenation therapy is a new skin treatment that delivers ultrasonic shockwaves to stimulate regrowth of blood vessels and erectile associated improvement of blood flow. This treatment is also known as Low-Intensity Shock Wave Therapy (LI-SWT) or Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Treatment (EPAT). This is a totally non-invasive skin treatment that has minimal risks and success rates in 80% of men.

How does pressure wave erectile rejuvenation work?

Rather than simply treating the symptoms of ED, Dr. David Goldberg and the physicians of Skin Laser & Surgery Specialists offer an effective solution based on regenerative medicine. Using shockwave therapy, we can restore normal penile function – giving men a harder and longer lasting erection for better penetration.

Our unique, non-surgical approach uses technology that stimulates the body’s natural healing response. Over the past decade, shockwave therapy has emerged as a leading choice therapy in orthopedics, for the treatment of kidney stones and to improve cellulite.

Shockwaves (SWs) are acoustic waves (vibrations) that carry energy. These vibrations travel through the skin, causing microtrauma, which in turn leads to the natural healing process and improvement in blood supply.

What is the cost of pressure wave erectile rejuvenation?

Because each patient is unique, the price for erectile rejuvenation will be provided after a thorough consultation with one of our board-certified physicians.

During this time, you will discuss your goals, undergo an examination, and ultimately reach an agreement regarding a treatment regimen. Our office also accepts CareCredit® and Alphaeon™ Credit to help you get the necessary treatment in a timely fashion.

A message from Dr. David Goldberg and the team at Skin Laser & Surgery Specialists of NY & NJ:

Dear Patients,

Our providers and staff recognize that we are all faced with difficult times as this pandemic continues to unfold throughout our area. However, the continuation of your care remains our top priority!

At this time, our New York City office is temporarily closed.

In our effort to provide you with the highest level of service, the Hackensack and Hillsborough NJ offices will remain open until further notice with limited hours of availability. We ask for your understanding with our protocols on hand washing and social distancing when you arrive for your appointment. Please do not come to the office if you are experiencing a cough, fever, shortness of breath, or other symptoms associated with COVID-19.

Should you prefer not to visit the office in person, our providers are now offering virtual office visits. This is commonly known as telemedicine, or in this case, teledermatology. Our dedicated concierge team will assist you in scheduling a virtual appointment with your provider, including those in the New York City office.

Currently, the government mandates that the only way to have these virtual visits is to communicate via FaceTime, Skype, Zoom, or WhatsApp video. This is because your medical providers needs to see you, and you can show the provider the problem area of your body that you are concerned about. You will also be able to discuss any other issues regarding your ongoing care or for any new skin concerns you may have. Your provider may tell you that an in-person visit may be required for testing or more in-depth examination. In that case, a concierge team member will reach out to schedule an in-office visit.

To schedule your in-person or virtual appointment, please call our office at 908-359-8980 or email [email protected] Our concierge team members will schedule a time for your medical provider to call you back. We have set aside times for all of our medical providers to call you for your virtual appointment.

Please be aware that virtual visits must be billed to your medical health insurance just as they would for an in-person office visit. If your insurance has recently changed, please have that information ready to provide to our team members. Depending on your insurance plan, you may have financial obligations such as co-pays, deductibles, and co-insurance just as you would for an in-office visit (at the present time, the government has only waived co-pays related to COVID-19 testing).

We understand that this is a stressful time, but we are here for you!

Stay safe and healthy,

Dr. David Goldberg and the team at Skin Laser & Surgery Specialists of NY & NJ
