Low Intensity Shockwave Therapy (LIST) involves onset of the process of neovascularization (new micro blood vessels formation) inside the penis by harnessing energy from acoustic waves. Rush of blood flow into the penis helps achieve desired erection. Unlike conventional ED treatments, LIST targets the physiological mechanism of erection, leaving patients in a position to self-sufficiently attain erection. Over time, it aims to progressively improve erections and even cure ED. LIST is a highly effective and safe treatment option for ED. Patients often experience an instantaneous disappearance of pain and it stimulates natural penile functions. The therapy may involve a number of sessions, each lasting less than an hour. No pain (only a slight tingling sensation) is experienced. Plus, its non-invasive nature makes it particularly free of risks and complications. The cost of LIST in India ranges between 2000 to 4000 INR per session.
