Some men suffer from ED after surgical treatment. If you experience ED after traumatic pelvic injuries, pelvic fractures, ED after prostate cancer, or some other surgical procedure it’s important to know it can be treated successfully.

Erectile dysfunction is a fairly common side effect for certain types of surgical procedures. For example, traumatic pelvic injuries and pelvic fractures often will affect the corpora cavernosa, and the damaged penile arteries and nerves will subsequently inhibit sexual performance. ED after prostate cancer is also common, and radiation therapy can also impinge on sexual function.

Whatever the causes of ED in men, since the advent of oral PDE-5 inhibitors, such as Vardenafil (Viagra), Sildenafil (Levitra), and Tadalafil (Cialis), oral therapy has become the first-line treatment option for ED. Surgical methods to resolve ED problems are also available, including IPP and venous leak procedures.

Acoustic wave therapy for ED, while a relatively recent ED treatment method, is quickly gaining popularity, and is proving to be one of the most effective ED treatments currently available. Companies like Shockwave and Gainswave have introduced the acoustic wave therapy for ED that treats more than the signs and symptoms, and may prove especially beneficial for those suffering from ED after surgical treatment. Because the sound wave technology induces what is known as neo vascularization and nerve regeneration over time, damaged blood vessels and nerves can be renewed or replaced in the course of therapy stimulating healthy tissue growth, increased blood flow, and consequently, greater sensitivity and performance. As an important alternative to Viagra and other potency drugs, acoustic wave therapy for ED offers more than short term results. Shockwave therapy typically includes 6 treatments, one every other day for two weeks, or twice a week for three weeks.

Specialists have found that the patients receiving Shockwave treatment experience longer lasting erections and improved sexual function. The effect of the treatment can last up to two years.

If you are suffering from the effects of ED after surgical treatment, such as traumatic pelvic injuries, pelvic fractures, or ED after prostate cancer, then it’s time to consult a specialist and learn about the ED treatment options that are available. There are solutions to your ED problems.
