A frequently asked question by our patients is: “What’s the success rate of Focused Shockwave Therapy for treating Erectile Dysfunction?”
And the short answer to that is: “Well, it depends.”
For how long have you been dealing with your condition?
Did you recently have prostate surgery or cancer?
Are you a heavy smoker? Boozer? Coffee addict?
Does your diet suck?
Do you exercise enough?
Are you significantly overweight?
If you have diabetes – is it under control?
Do you have a regular (and willing and supportive) sexual partner?
Whether you need shockwave therapy for ED, Peyronie’s Disease, or Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome, your results will depend on many of these factors.
The long answer, for Erectile Dysfunction specifically, is that about 70% of men in peer reviewed studies show improvement in their conditions over the short and long term with Focused Shockwave Therapy.
A few of the more impressive studies can be read at the following links:
here (study 1) TLDR: “There is convincing evidence in the literature that Li-ESWT is able to generate efficacy data in many patients with the so-called organic ED of vasculogenic origin and that in subsets of patients these positive effects are durable up to 2 years.”
here (study 2) TLDR: “Shock wave therapy with or without concomitant treatments improved the quality of erections in patients with erectile dysfunction.”
here (study 3) TLDR: “The randomized single-blind study confirms that Li-ESWT significantly improves erectile function.”
At FocusWave Clinic we have seen EVEN GREATER rates of success – closer to 80% in the short-term.

Why are we seeing better than expected results?
We have a few theories.
First of all – FocusWave Clinic uses the Industry Standard, Focused Shockwave Therapy device, made in Switzerland by the pioneers of the modality, which sends powerful electromagnetic, linear shockwave directly to the treatment zone.
Many clinics use radial or acoustic or pulse wave devices which aren’t true shockwave therapy devices, and cannot achieve the depths required to treat many conditions.
So it’s critical that If you are seeking impotence treatment via shockwave therapy – make sure your clinic is using FOCUSED or LINEAR Shockwaves. Most all the positive peer reviewed studies are using FOCUSED or LINEAR Shockwaves, not Radial or Acoustic or Pulse waves.
Another potential reason for improved patient outcomes is that FocusWave Clinic is flexible with our treatment plans and protocols.
Clinical studies tend to be quite rigid for control purposes. But we realize that everybody, and everyone’s condition, is somewhat unique.
At FocusWave Clinic, we offer additional treatments and tune-ups, we can and will vary the frequency and intensity of the shocks, and we also encourage positive health changes in our patients (diet, exercise, lifestyle transformations) by recommending additional modalities to help you overcome your condition.
Ultimately, our patients come to FocusWave Clinic to treat the cause of the problem – not just the symptom.
Reversing sexual health diseases and restoring natural erections is possible without injections, needles, pain, and perpetual pharmacological assistance.
