FAQ – The GAINSWave™

GAINSWave™ Erectile Dysfunction Treatment in Portland

What is the GAINSWave™?

The GAINSWave™ is an alternative treatment for erectile dysfunction that uses pulsed energy waves to open and repair aging blood vessels and increase blood flow to the penis. The key to satisfactory erectile function is optimal blood flow within the erectile tissue, so this process improves sexual health and results in stronger and harder erections. This is an FDA approved therapy that is new to the U.S. although it’s successfully been used in Europe for over 15 years.

How does it work?

The gently pulsating waves of the GAINSWave™ promote increased blood flow to the penis by opening existing blood vasculature and stimulating the growth of new blood vessels. The pulsating waves also trigger a healing response that “wakes-up” dormant stem cells and growth factors in the penis. The release of these growth factors also stimulates the creation of new blood vessels and rejuvenates erectile tissue.

What are the benefits of the GAINSWave™?

Results of the GAINSWave™ include improved sexual performance, increased sensation in the penis, more spontaneous erections, and enhanced erections. This treatment is drug-free and non-invasive.

What is the GAINSWave™ procedure like?

Dr. Madda will determine if you are a candidate for this treatment at an initial consultation. Once approved for treatment, patients will start the GAINSWave™ treatments. During these sessions, a topical numbing agent is used and the GAINSWave™ “wand” is applied directly onto the penis to deliver a specific frequency of energy waves to the tissue. Each treatment lasts about 20 minutes and Dr. Madda generally recommends 6 sessions over the course of several weeks. This treatment is pain-free and non-invasive.

Does it work?

In recent studies, 80% of men with ED who received the GAINSWave™ treatment saw a reversal of their condition and stopped taking oral ED drugs. Nearly 90% of all men receiving the treatment have reported positive results and improved sexual performance.
