Are you struggling with erectile dysfunction (ED), but feel embarrassed to talk about it. There’s no need to feel that way, because ED is a condition that affects many men, but the good news is, help is available. Penile implant surgery is an effective treatment for ED, but is there an outpatient treatment available.
What is erectile dysfunction?
Erectile dysfunction is the inability to achieve or sustain a firm erection. ED is often caused by diseases such as high blood pressure, diabetes, and narrowing of the blood vessels to the penis.
Is There an Outpatient Treatment for ED?
Yes, there are actually several outpatient treatments for ED, including the popular Priapus shot.
What is the Priapus shot?
The Priapus shot also known as the P-shot, is a cutting-edge treatment that uses growth factors derived from the patient’s own blood, to rejuvenate the penis. The P-shot is made from platelet rich plasma (PRP), which is derived from a sample of the patient’s blood. The P-shot is an in-office procedure that takes about 60 minutes to complete.
How the Priapus shot treats ED
The blood is drawn and then placed in a centrifuge where it is spun for several minutes to separate the PRP, which contains growth and healing factors. The PRP is injected into specific areas of the penis, and stimulates new blood vessels and tissue. This improves erectile strength and as a result, patients are able to maintain erections.
How long do the results of the P-shot last?
Results last an average of 12-18 months.
