If you are an adult male experiencing erectile dysfunction (ED), take heart – you’re not alone. ED is a highly prevalent health condition that up to 65 percent of men aged 40 to 80 are currently dealing with.
The common symptoms of ED – reduced sexual desire and the inability to achieve and sustain an erection – can affect the quality of life of both patients and their partners. This condition can be induced by certain physical factors – such as cardiovascular, metabolic, or neurological diseases – or other psychological or lifestyle factors, such as excessive alcohol intake, smoking, certain medications, stress, anxiety, depression, or relationship problems.
Whatever the cause of your sexual dysfunction, the good news is that there are effective treatment options to help manage it. It’s just a question of choosing the right solution for you.
Regenerative vs. Conventional Therapies for Erectile Dysfunction
The conventional treatment option for mild to moderate erectile dysfunction is the oral administration of phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitors (e.g., Viagra, Levitra, Cialis, etc.). More invasive treatments, including intracavernous injections (into the base of the penis) and implantation of a penile prosthesis, are offered for severe cases of ED. However, these treatments are not only expensive but also involve the risks of surgery-related complications and side effects.
Regenerative medicine, on the other hand, offers a safer and just as effective alternative. These therapies are designed to help restore erectile function without medication or surgery by regenerating damaged nerves and muscles while regulating the expression of growth factors that help improve erectile functions simultaneously. These regenerative therapies include:
- P-Shot® (Priapus Shot®)– This patented regenerative injection procedure for men provides a
safe and natural treatment for ED. The in-office procedure involves withdrawing a small amount of your blood that is then processed using advanced medical equipment to produce a
concentrated formula of growth factors, which is then injected into the penis with topical
anesthesia. The injection procedure takes approximately 20 minutes, and the entire process only
takes about 45 minutes. Over time, the P-Shot® rejuvenates your penile tissue, improving blood
flow and nerve function. As a result, it provides improved firmness and strength of your
erections, increased penile sensitivity, and increased libido and intensity of orgasm.
- Acoustic wave therapy (AWT) – AWT is an effective, non-invasive regenerative treatment based on the science of sound waves that helps the body correct a specific problem such as erectile dysfunction (ED). This low-intensity type of extracorporeal shockwave therapy improves erectile function by stimulating the formation of new blood vessels. With this approach, an energy source (electrohydraulic, electromagnetic, or piezoelectric) is used to generate shockwaves that transfer energy to affected tissues to directly induce mechanical stress.
Numerous studies have shown that AWT improves erectile functions by improving microcirculation, recruiting progenitor cells and stem cells, increasing blood nitric oxide levels via vasodilation, and causing nerve regeneration. In human clinical trials, the therapy has been found to improve erectile functions in mildly, moderately, or severely affected erectile dysfunction patients who are non-responsive to phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitors.
