Erectile dysfunction can affect many of varying ages, but it is more common in men over forty, with the likelihood of developing it increasing with age.

Some medical conditions such as type two diabetes can also cause erectile dysfunction. VIGORE™ is an innovative, non-invasive, hands-free technology that treats the ‘source’ of erectile dysfunction with no known side-effects. It is a high tech, low intensity, painless application of linear soundwave technology designed to treat the area around the penis with ED shockwave therapy.

A man’s inability to achieve and maintain an erection can have a significant effect on self-esteem and cause tension in relationships. It is estimated that around 4.3 million men in the UK suffer from erectile dysfunction.

Dr Sherif Wakil successfully treated cricketer, Sir Ian Botham using the revolutionary VIGORE system.

The VIGORE treatment is an energy treatment which stimulates and encourages the penis to rejuvenate and grow new blood vessels to rebuild function. This process is called angiogenesis. It achieves this using a proven soundwave technology called low intensity shockwave therapy.

Unlike taking medication for erectile dysfunction, which aim to raise blood flow to the area, treatments with the VIGORE system offer longer-term results with considerably fewer health implications and contraindications as compared to taking medical drugs to induce an erection. VIGORE treats the problem, the weakness and dysfunction in the erectile tissue, whereas medication attempts to control the symptoms caused by the problem. By restoring the natural function of the penis, VIGORE offers a simple treatment solution via a course of four treatments which can be life changing.

VIGORE is generally a pain free and drug free solution to erectile dysfunction, whilst also being safe and effective.

Linear Shockwave

How does it work?

VIGORE uses quick, low-intensity shockwaves, known as Linear Shockwave Therapy (LSWT), in four different areas of the groin and penis to increase blood supply that generates the erection, therefore reversing the effects of aging and vascular deterioration. This shockwave treatment for ED is a pain-free procedure, requiring no anaesthetic prior to treatment. VIGORE is unique in that it targets the underlying cause of ED (Erectile Dysfunction).


Studies have shown that VIGORE is effective in treating 70 to 84 per cent of men experiencing ED. One particular study showed that almost 50 per cent of men being treated were able to perform sexually without any medications in the first month following ED shockwave therapy. Men whose ED is associated with diabetes also respond well to treatment.

You are suitable for VIGORE treatment if you have vascular related erection problems due to age and lifestyle, mild to moderate erection dysfunction (ED) or still have erectile dysfunction when using medication designed for the condition. In severe cases of erectile problems, ED medicines may still be needed in combination with the VIGORE treatment. Results vary from individual to individual and some factors causing the ED may not be treatable using VIGORE.

A full medical history will be taken to ensure that you don’t have any medical conditions which would make you unsuitable for treatment.

If you can answer yes to any of the following questions then you will very likely see a benefit from VIGORE treatment, even if you don’t think you suffer from erectile dysfunction.

  • Are your erections less reliable than they used to be?
  • Are your erections less firm that you would like them to be?
  • Do you sometimes struggle to stay hard for your partner?
  • Are you taking medication for erectile dysfunction quite often and would rather you didn’t need to?
  • Is your response to medication for erectile dysfunction getting lower or not achieving the hardness you want?
  • Are you a type two diabetes sufferer? Has this condition had an impact on your sex life?
  • Have you undergone a prostatectomy?
  • Are you getting older but still want to enjoy an active sex life and regain the youthful performance you once had?

The shockwave erectile dysfunction treatment is completely painless. Most people report only a slight tingling sensation during treatment.

The treatment will take no longer than 30 minutes. A course of 4 treatments are recommended to achieve the best results.

There are generally no side effects from VIGORE treatment, and you can return to your normal activities immediately, including sexual activity and exercise. No downtime or discomfort after treatment is reported.

It is expected that between 4 to 6 weeks after the course of treatments your erectile function will have improved. Some have noticed improvements earlier. Results have been shown in clinical studies to last three years or more, with 80% of men with vascular-related erectile dysfunction noticing a real change in their ability to achieve and maintain an erection within the first few months after treatment.
