The GAINSWave® Acoustic Wave Therapy is a NON-INVASIVE, DRUG-FREE, NEEDLE-FREE, PAIN-FREE cutting-edge treatment in NYC for Erectile Dysfunction (ED). Gentle, low-intensity sound waves are released via a rod that is moved over the penis shaft and base. The sound waves promote neovascularization, or the formation of new blood vessels, as well as opening of existing blood vessels. Instead of merely trying to undo the symptoms of ED, this procedure treats the root cause of the ED and enables the patient to achieve and sustain firm erections.


“Low-intensity extracorporeal shock wave therapy is a revolutionary treatment of ED, and probably possesses unprecedented qualities that can rehabilitate erectile tissue.”

How Does it work?

ED is essentially a problem of blood flow. Due to age, stress, smoking, diabetes, obesity and a number of other factors, the blood vessels in the penis begin to deteriorate and decay over time. The pulsating sound waves of the GAINSWave® protocol aim to reverse this vascular deterioration. In addition, the erectile tissue undergoes a healing process that “wakes up” dormant stem cells and growth factors in the penis.

The effects of the treatment are often apparent after as few as 6 quick sessions.  Each session at Manhattan Medical Associates in NYC is about 15 minutes long. Many patients report:

  • Stronger, sustainable erections
  • Enhanced sensitivity
  • Improved performance

Treating ED with sound wave therapy has been the most successful protocol in Europe for nearly 10 years and it is now approved by the FDA for use in the United States.  In a recent Cambridge University research study, 95% of men reported improved erections based on the SHIM (Sexual Health Inventory for Men) score. Numerous other studies show success rates between 70% and 85%.  In fact, the GAINSWave® treatment has been shown to be TWICE as effective as Viagra, Cialis, and other oral ED drugs. All without any negative side effects.

The GAINSWave® machine was developed in Switzerland and its waves are calibrated to within one millimeter.  It is the most precise and effective protocol of its kind.
