Over 50% of men will have some degree of erectile dysfunction in their lifetime, which is often a result of lack of blood flow. Steady blood flow is the key to erectile function. As men age, the blood vessels in the penis deteriorate and fill with micro-plaque reducing blood flow to the penis.
Southland Urology is now offering a new treatment that will transform your relationship. Thanks to the 15 years of proven research and studies, this therapy can repair and create new blood vessels improving blood flow, thereby optimizing performance.
GAINSWave™ is a protocol utilizing low-intensity extracorporeal shockwave therapy to improve men’s sexual health. Shockwave therapy is an acoustic wave that, when applied to the soft tissue of the male genitals, results in the repair of existing blood vessels and the growth of new blood vessels. This protocol allows the penis to accept more blood, leading to better quality erections.
How it Works
GAINSWave™ protocols utilize a technology known as shockwave therapy that helps promote healing and growth. This treatment sends acoustic waves into the genitals, and through mild shear stress, trigger a series of biological reactions that result in the release of angiogenic factors. In other words, it promotes the repair of existing blood vessels and the creation of new blood vessels, resulting in improved blood flow. Better blood flow translates to better erection quality and sexual performance.
By expanding existing blood vessels and generating new ones, GAINSWave™ helps to improve blood flow to the penis and offers men these benefits:
Decreased Refractory Period
Improved Erection Quality
Relief from the symptoms of Erectile Dysfunction and Peyronie’s Disease

Southland Urology is the first dual Center of Excellence for the UroLift procedure. We are one of the largest volume UroLift providers in Southern California.
The UroLift System
The UroLift System uses a revolutionary approach to treating BPH that lifts and holds the enlarged prostate tissue so it no longer blocks the urethra. It is the only BPH treatment performed by a urologist that does not require heating, cutting, or removal of the prostate tissue. The procedure is typically performed using local anesthesia in the office and typically takes about 20 minutes. Most patients return home the same day without a catheter.
