Ongoing Research Participation

We enroll our patients in ongoing research protocols and data system for collection & analysis of best outcome results from therapies. We keep records of procedures performed in our outcomes database & in shared and published databases. Patients are always treated with the best protocols & treatments based on the latest research data & informed consent on investigational nature of treatments.  Strict sterile protocols & universal precautions are followed by out office and staff.

The Difference

Treatments at other Clinics :

"Patch up" treatments like, addicting medications, injection, Medications (with many side effects including weight gain & increased blood sugar, damage to kidneys, heart, stroke & gastric ulcer)

Not experienced in management of chronic diseases.

May not offer option of different bone marrow types. (only offer drilling bones or low quality umbilical stem cells.)

May use poorly trained non-physician assistants to evaluate & perform injections.

Not FDA compliant.

Use machines with old technology that use focused waves which were designed originally for treating muscle pain. These machines cause a lot of pain even after using pain medications & creams and do not allow using the machine at the highest energy level. Often advertised as painless but they use a focused energy source which is pointy and are very painful in reality. Often can cause fibrosis to the male organ.

Treatments at Our Clinic :

Treating the root cause of the problem by regenerating the damaged regions and balancing immune system. Good safety profile with body products from Other modalities like IV Vitamin Therapy to focus on the whole body and treating different parts of it instead of just treating one out of several diseased structures in the body.

Several types of stem cell including Adipose (fat), bone marrow and umbilical cord derived options available.

Needle Free Air-Jet pre Injections option for procedures.

1. "Male organ Low Intensity Shock Wave Treatment is Able to Shift PDE5i Nonresponders to Responders: A Double-Blind, Sham Controlled Study" THE JOURNAL OF UROLOGY® – 2016

Low intensity shock wave treatment is effective even in patients with severe ED who are PDE5i nonresponders. After treatment about half of them were able to achieve gaol with PDE5i. Longer followup is needed to establish the place of low intensity shock wave treatment in these challenging cases.” Read More

2. Extracorporeal shockwave therapy for chronic pelvic pain syndrome

Chronic prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CP/CPPS) is a common disease in males, which is characterized by persistent discomfort or pain in the pelvic region. As currently used drug therapies fail to produce satisfactory results, it is an urgent task to find new and effective methods for the treatment of CP/CPPS. In recent years, many reports are seen on the extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT) for CP/CPPS. ESWT can significantly improve the symptoms of pelvic pain and urination disorders in CPPS patients, and its therapeutic effect is attributed to the improvement of angiogenesis and block of pain nerves.

3. Peyronie's disease and low intensity shock wave therapy: Clinical outcomes and patient satisfaction rate in an open-label single arm prospective study in Australian men

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the efficacy, safety and patient satisfaction outcomes following low intensity extracorporeal shock wave therapy (LiESWT) in men with Peyronie’s disease (PD) using a standardised protocol. In this open-label single arm prospective study, patients with PD were enrolled following informed consent. Patient demographics, change in male organ curvature and plaque hardness, International Index of Erectile Function (IIEF)-5 score, and overall satisfaction score (on a 5-point scale) were recorded. Treatment template consists of 3000 shock waves to the Peyronie’s plaque over 20 minutes, twice weekly for 6 weeks. The majority of patients have PD history longer than 6 months (mean, 12.8 months; range, 6-28 months). Two thirds of patients have received and failed oral medical therapy. There were improvements in male organ curvature (more than 15 degrees in 33% of men), plaque hardness (60% of men) and male organ pain (4 out of 6 men) following LiESWT. There was a moderate improvement in IIEF-5 score (>5 points reported in 20% of men). No complication was reported and the majority of patients were satisfied (rated 4 out of 5; 70% of men) and would recommend this therapy to others.

Vardis and colleagues performed new clinical studies in patients with erectile vasculogenic dysfunction (low blood supply to the male organ). Patients who had poor male organ stiffness were tested after using bluetongue medications. The intent was to investigate the possibility of low-intensity shock wave therapy converting patients who were no longer “functioning” with oral drugs (bluetongue) in “functioning” patients, that is, they would have good male organ stiffness . The study was conducted on 29 patients who had multiple risks for cardiovascular disease, established cardiovascular disease and diabetes. All of them did not present adequate male organ stiffness after oral drug use. After treatment 72% of them had good male organ stiffness, with the use of the oral drug. This increase in stiffness was accompanied by an increase in blood inflow to the male organ and better function of vascular tissues. Another important finding of the study is that no patient reported pain or any adverse events during treatment.

Following this encouraging result other studies have been conducted on animals. Several groups evaluated the effect of low-intensity shock wave therapy on the erectile function of diabetic rats. They performed the evaluation of pressure inside the male organ, after stimulation. It was seen that blood flow in diabetic rats was reduced in all animals, but animals undergoing shock wave therapy had a much lower reduction. In addition to the analysis of the male organ tissues of the animals submitted to shock waves, they had a much larger number of nerves containing nitric oxide (responsible for smooth muscle relaxation inside the male organ, allowing greater blood supply and male organ stiffness), endothelial cells ( are the cells present in blood vessels), smooth muscle cells and mesenchymal stem cells. These findings support the idea that one of the therapeutic mechanisms of the low-intensity shock wave is the recruitment of stem cells that circulate in the blood system.

Another study, done on rats that had the nerves involved, showed that the group undergoing low-intensity shockwave therapy had regeneration of severed nerves, the appearance of new blood vessels, and increased pressure within the male organ. In addition they showed a much larger concentration of progenitor cells (stem cells) in the male organ tissue.”

Review & Testimonials/Case Examples

 “When things aren’t working like they used to in the bedroom, it can really affect both partners. There ends up being an anger and resentment there that can be heartbreaking. I suggested my fiancée try ESWT, We didn’t want to deal with side effects that other ED options had. So far he has had 2 treatments and the results have been incredible. We are thrilled! It’s really helped our relationship get back on track. I recommend this treatment for any couple, it’s a simple, pain free treatment with no down time. We signed up for the full package and it’s the best money we’ve ever spent”

Introduction About the Topic

What Is ED?

ED is also known as impotence. This condition occurs when a man is unable to initiate or sustain a flow of blood into the male organ.

Most men will occasionally find it difficult to sustain a flow of blood into the male organ. However, it becomes a problem when this happens frequently

 

In times past, most people felt that Ed was not treatable. However, that opinion has changed since the discovery of the drugs Viagra or sildenafil.

Most men with ED may be embarrassed or feel ashamed to talk about their condition, even with a doctor. But this is not to be. A lot of research has been conducted on ED, and there are many treatments now available for it.

About Peyronie’s Disease

Peyronie’s disease (PD) is a condition characterized by an inability to initiate or maintain a flow of blood into the male organ. Peyronie’s disease is not age-specific, meaning that it affects men of all ages. More specifically, Peyronie’s disease is a rare form of ED. In this condition, then male organ bends, causing pains during a flow of blood into the male organ.

A curved flow of blood into the male organ may not necessarily indicate a problem, but men with Peyronie’s disease may encounter problems during intimacy. It often causes discomfort and anxiety.

Research has shown that age and genetics may contribute to this disease. Changes to the tissue causes injury, with healing occurring slowly as men get older in age. This increases the risk for the condition.

Another risks factor for Peyronie’s disease is Dupuyren’s contracture. This condition is characterized by a thickening in the hand that makes the fingers to pull inward.

Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome

Chronic pelvic syndrome is a long-term condition, but one that has been poorly understood. It is said that chronic pelvic syndrome is difficult to treat, but we don’t see it that way. However, you must know that chronic pelvic syndrome has a many symptoms that includes impotence, severe pain, and problems with the urinary system or bowel. Most patients do not find it easy to cope with these symptoms, and also, they have a deleterious effect on the psychological wellbeing of the patient.

Chronic pelvic pain occurs in the nerves and the muscles of the pelvis. For an individual to be diagnosed of chronic pelvic syndrome, he or she must have experienced the pain for at least six months.

Chronic pelvic pain syndrome is a common condition and it affects both gender. Many people who suffer from this condition hardly get the right diagnosis and treatment. If you have chronic pelvic pain syndrome, or someone you know does, then there’s no need to worry. There is hope. You’ve arrived the right page, one that will show you how to get the right treatment for chronic pelvic pain at Los Angeles County. Of course, treatment is done with the innovative shockwave therapy.

Current Treatment at Other Clinics

Current treatment involves using medications, injection or surgery.  These treatments are considered a patch up of the problem without treating the root cause of the problem.  Medications & injections have many side effects including weight gain & increased blood sugar, damage to kidneys, heart, stroke & gastric ulcer.  Surgery can be very debilitating with prolong downtime during recovery requiring at times prolonged bed rest for recovery.  It also entails a lot of risk including risk of infection, bleeding, poor surgical outcome to name a few. 

We are different from many other clinics who offer stem cell or PRP or sonic wave (pulse therapy).   Other may also not offer option of bone marrow derived stem cell, Adipose derived stem cell & umbilical cord stem cell.  They in effect expose patients to more invasive treatments like drilling bones without offering other easier options.  They also may use machines with old technology that use focused waves which were designed originally for treating muscle pain.   These machines cause a lot of pain even after using pain medications & creams and do not allow using the machine at the highest energy level.  They are often advertised at painless but they use a focused energy source which is pointy and are very painful in reality.  We use latest generation German made  wave machines that use linear wave patter with no pain at the highest energy level.  Furthermore, they may not have proper knowledge of how other modalities can enhance the effects of ESWT like Stem Cells.  These other modalities are used by us to focus on the whole disease and treating different parts of it instead of just treating one out of several diseased structures in the body.

Safe Non Surgical Option

We use a combination of newest cutting edge technology in regenerative medicine to stimulate body’s own repair ability to reverse aging and damage.   We use Stem Cells as part of treatment plan designed by the doctor to treat the body.    These are safe investigational treatments that have shown very promising & safe results in thousands of treatments over the 10-20 years in Europe and USA.   They don’t involve using any medications or drugs.  

 

What Does ESWT/Sonic Wave Therapy Do?

Specific mechanical stimuli may influence the cellular functions of living tissue. The extracorporeal shock wave, a modern treatment established in medicine for more than 30 years, activates mechanical sensors that trigger biochemical tissue changes.
Effects of shock wave:

Angiogenesis (appearance of new blood vessels)

Improvement of microcirculation

Relaxation of smooth muscle of the blood vessel (allowing more blood to enter the male organ)

Activation of local stem cells

Improvement of nerve transmission in male organ nerves

HOW DOES IT WORK?

When the low frequency shock wave is applied to some organ, its weak wave interacts with the deep target tissue, where it causes mechanical stress and microtraumas, also known as shear stress. This force triggers a chain of events, which cause the release of angiogenic factors, which create new vessels in the treated tissue, increasing blood flow. In addition the shock wave has the ability to recruit stem and progenitor cells. These cells have the ability to divide and differentiate into specialized cell types. Its key role in the emergence of new vessels in ischemic tissues has been widely researched. In a recent study it was seen that ischemic tissues (with little blood and oxygen supply) release attractive chemical factors to the progenitor cells that circulate in the blood. These cells contribute to endothelial repair (lining of blood vessels). Another study has shown that the low-frequency shock wave has the ability to activate stem cells inside the male organ tissue. The end result was increased blood flow in the treated tissue. Another effect of shockwave is the promotion of regeneration of nerves. The end result was increased blood flow in the treated tissue. Another effect of shockwave is the promotion of regeneration of nerves involved. The end result was increased blood flow in the treated tissue. Another effect of shockwave is the promotion of regeneration of nerves involved.

Stem Cell Activation

Another effect of the shock wave is the activation of stem cells, which are inactive in the male organ, especially below the tunica albuginea (corpus cavernosum). The shock wave activates the division of these cells, regenerating the local tissue.

Today the low intensity shock wave is considered a minimally invasive stem cell therapy.

APPLICATION OF SHOCK WAVE IN ED

As one of the main causes of ED is poor arterial flow, it has been suggested that the induction of neovascularization by the low-intensity shock wave could improve arterial flow, implying an improvement in erectile function. The first study that demonstrated the efficacy of shock wave in ED was performed in 2010 by Vardi et al. The authors applied the low-intensity shock wave in 20 middle-aged patients with mild to moderate ED, who showed improvement with oral medications. They applied the shock wave to 5 different places in the male organ in 6 sessions.

After 1 month of treatment initiation, 75% of the patients had a significant improvement in male organ stiffness. In addition, nocturnal, which occur during REM sleep, were measured and showed a significant improvement in male organ blood flow. Most of the men reviewed after 6 months of treatment continued to have spontaneous reaction without the use of oral drugs.

SHOCKWAVE TREATMENT FOR CHRONIC PELVIC PAIN SYNDROME, ED & PEYRONIE’S DISEASE

Shockwave therapy is an innovative treatment involving low-sensitive and mild pulsating sound waves. This therapy is non-invasive and painless. For treatment of chronic pelvic pain syndrome the basic mechanism is via emission of high energy pulses. These energy pulses are targeted at the affected tissues (the pelvis in this case). The technician will use the hand piece of the shockwave therapy machine to emit these pulses. The waves will then create some localized micro-trauma that will trigger the healing process in your pelvis. As a plus, extracorporeal shockwave therapy stimulates neovascularization/angiogenesis, and neurogenesis. Also, the micro trauma causes an increase in local blood flow, while breaking up the buildup of calcium.  This allows resetting and regeneration of nerves, increasing blood flow and resetting pain receptors, breaking scar tissue and plaques which are the underlying cause of many of these problems. 

It is important to note that shockwave therapy does not cause pain. However, since the area to be treated is painful, you may experience a little bit of discomfort. But there’s no need to worry. Our therapist will control the intensity of the shockwaves in such a way that the discomfort will be brought down to the barest minimum.

For ED and peyronie’s disease, shockwave therapy works by breaking up plaques that had been formed in the blood vessels and also stimulating the growth of new blood vessels, thus enhancing the flow of blood to the male organ. This in turn restores and enhances male potency.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is extracorporeal shockwave therapy?

Basically, the extracorporeal shockwave therapy is a non-surgical procedure used for the treatment of various disorders such as Achilles tendonitis, tennis elbow, chronic plantar fasciitis, and of course chronic pelvic pain syndrome.

What makes extracorporeal shockwave therapy tick is that it can be used to treat conditions extracorporeally. This means that treatment is done outside the body and not within it. Because of the non-invasive form of treatment, ESWT is less expensive and carries lesser risks than surgery.


Is ESWT for chronic pain syndrome, ED and Peyronie’s disease effective?

Clinical research and experience, including an FDA ESWT study has shown that ESWT is very successful in pain treatment. The FDA study involved 150 subjects. All subjects were asked to rate their pain level using a scale of 1-10. Prior to treatment, the level of pain was 7.7.

A year after the treatment, the patients were asked to rate their level of pain also on a scale of 1-10. Amazingly, patients reported a pain score of 0.6. This indicates a reduction in pain intensity by 92 percent. Apart from this high success rate, ESWT is also high.


What is involved in the ESWT procedure?

Why many patients would benefit from ESWT for chronic pelvic syndrome is because treatment takes place extracorporeally. This means that treatment is done outside of the body. Recovery period is not lengthy, meaning that you will recover fast. This is quite unlike surgery.

During the course of treatment, you will lie on your back. The part to be treated will rest on the machine, on a soft membrane filled with water. To ensure your comfort, the therapist may use a local anesthesia. An ultrasound scan will then be used to view the location to be treated. During the treatment process, you will hear clicking sounds.

If you feel anxious or nervous before or after treatment, do not hesitate to talk to the therapist. Your comfort is our utmost priority.

When will my results show up?

Stem cell therapy relies on your own regenerative healing to occur. We are all different and so is our healing process. Some patients may begin to see their results within few weeks while others may require some months. The time taken for healing to manifest also depends on the severity of the disease.

What kind of recovery can I expect?

What ESWT does is to make your body to produce new cells in the pained or damaged region. The healing process is gradual and takes place over days, months or weeks. Some people may experience mild bruise or soreness after treatment. What makes ESWT tick is that you’ll avoid getting worse before getting better, quite unlike surgery.

What’s the Cost of Treatments?

The cost of treatment depends on the procedure performed.  We often offer discounts for returning customers or larger packages of treatment using repeated injections or combining different treatments.  We also offer a price match policy on comparing treatments done by board certified physicians.  We also have interest free payment plan options including care credit for qualifying patients. A limited number of insurance companies and Workers compensation may at times cover some of the expenses.  You may be able to get reimbursed by your insurance for your doctor visits & ultrasound cost. The consultation fee can be deducted from your future procedures, making your consolation free of cost to you.

Book a consultation with our experts to see the type of procedure that is right for you.

How Effect Are The Treatments?

Improvement in IIEF-5 score by 5 points (60%) and EDITS Index score by >50% (70%).  Most patients were satisfied (scoring 4 out of 5; 67%) and would recommend the therapy
to their friends (80%).   Number of treatments depend on different factors including age, how advance the disease is, other cofactors like diabetes. 

How Long Will the Results Last?

Results depend on different factors including age, how advance the disease is, other cofactors like diabetes.  Benefits were achieved among men with ED and were durable through follow-up to 1-2 years. Boosters can be used later in life.
