Focused Vs Radial ShockWave Therapy for Erectile Dysfunction – What is the Difference? – HTX Urology

Radial shockwave therapy (RSWT) and focused shockwave therapy (FSWT) are two different treatments for erectile dysfunction (ED). They both use sound waves to stimulate blood flow to the penis, but there are some important differences between the two.

RSWT uses a large, round applicator to deliver shockwaves to the entire area of the penis. This treatment is less targeted than FSWT, and may be less effective as a result. However, it is less expensive and may be a good option for men who are not candidates for FSWT.

FSWT uses a smaller, more focused applicator to deliver shockwaves directly to the areas of the penis that are most likely to benefit from treatment. This targeted approach means that FSWT is more effective than RSWT, but it is also more expensive.

Both RSWT and FSWT are non-invasive, painless treatments that have been shown to be effective in treating ED. These treatments are typically performed in a series of sessions, and most men see improvement after three to five sessions.

If you are considering shockwave therapy for ED, talk to your doctor about the pros and cons of RSWT and FSWT to find the best treatment for you.
