THE SWEET STUDY
SWEET stands for shockwave erectile enhancement trial. Dr. Brandeis set out with a lofty goal of creating the largest shockwave study ever performed. By February 2020 the sweet study had accrued 164 patients making it the largest shockwave study ever done.
We have 40 sites throughout the United States and Canada that are recruiting patients. We will continue to recruit patients through the end of 2020 and follow these patients for several years. It is very simple to participate, requiring a brief questionnaire every 3 months.
The results from this study will help chart future protocol development for the treatment of men with erectile dysfunction with a technology of shockwave therapy. It will also help us determine what the best maintenance protocols will be.
