UWave Therapy for Erectile Dysfunction in Indianapolis
Despite being a very common condition, many men become incredibly embarrassed and frustrated when they start to experience difficulty with their erections. Untreated erectile dysfunction can affect how men view themselves and even cause depression. Although medication like sildenafil (Viagra) and tadalafil (Cialis) can be effective, they can have side effects and lack the spontaneity that many men desire.
Fortunately, we now have more treatment options available to men with ED than ever before, including UWave, Urology of Indiana’s own unique Low-Intensity Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy.
How Does UWave Work?
UWave is a revolutionary yet simple treatment method that focuses on improving blood flow to the penis. Unlike other, more invasive treatment options, UWave requires no medications or surgery.
During six routine visits to the Urology of Indiana over the course of three weeks, your physician will utilize a machine that delivers controlled, focused energy waves to your erectile tissue. These impulses are virtually painless and encourage growth of new blood vessels. These blood vessels then help improve blood flow into the penis and improve natural erectile function
Treatment is completely non-invasive with each session lasting less than 30 minutes. Once your session is complete, you will be able to return home and carry on with your day as usual.

Once treatment is complete, men who respond to therapy are often able enjoy firm, long-lasting erections that allow them to be spontaneous in their sex life in ways that medications would not.

Erectile dysfunction is complex and no two patients are the same. The type of low intensity shockwave therapy upon which UWave is based has been shown to be most effective in men with mild to moderate vascular erectile dysfunction. We encourage all interested patients to schedule a consultation with Dr. Kovac or Dr. Tatem to discuss their case in detail and see treatment option suits them best.
UWave is based on a specific type of energy delivery known as focused linear shockwave therapy. Most ‘other’ men’s clinics utilize a technology known as radial wave therapy. Radial wave devices are much cheaper than focused linear machines, but have not been proven to benefit erections the way focused linear technology has. Unfortunately, even most providers at these other men’s clinics don’t understand this critical difference. Currently, Urology of Indiana is the only location in the state that offers real focused linear shockwave therapy for erectile dysfunction!
The focused linear shockwave therapy that UWave is based on has been proven to be incredibly safe and is actually thought to be safer than oral medications like sildenafil (Viagra) and tadalafil (Cialis).
