As doctors, most of our time is spent in helping patients make the best of what health they still have, or helping to hold the line against further aging, damage, and deterioration. Enriched plasma treatments like the P-Shot are different. They give us the chance to actually help turn back the clock and rebuild youthful vitality.
The Priapus Shot® (P-Shot) is an office based non-surgical procedure for erectile dysfunction designed to deliver lasting improvements in sexual performance to men. Until recently, commonly available treatment options for erectile dysfunction have included over the counter vitamins and supplements, prescription medications, and surgical implants. The Priapus Shot® represents an alternative to supplements, and prescribed medications that works by harnessing your own body’s natural healing and repair capabilities to revitalize aging and damaged tissue.
What is Erectile Dysfunction?
Erectile dysfunction or (ED), is categorized by the inability to get or keep an erection. It’s a condition that effects an estimated 18 million men across the United States. Most men attribute erectile dysfunction to a biproduct of the aging process. While erectile dysfunction does occur more frequently in men over 50, ED is more often than not the result of a health or psychological related condition. Those conditions include but are not limited to:
- High blood sugar (diabetes)
- High blood pressure
- High cholesterol
- Cardiovascular disease
- Drug or alcohol abuse
- Lack of exercise
What is the The Priapus Shot® (P-Shot)
The Priapus Shot® (P-Shot), is a safe, natural, non-surgical procedure that incorporates the harvesting and injection of one’s own plasma enriched growth factors or PRP into specific areas of the penis to treat erectile dysfunction. It is an advanced treatment option based on the very same principles and precision injection techniques that we as pain management specialists have utilized to help both professional and amateur athletes rebound from damaged joints, ligaments, and tendons.
How Does The Priapus Shot® Procedure Work?
The Priapus Shot® (P-Shot) procedure begins with a localized numbing agent applied to the penis. While the numbing agent takes effect, your MPC physician will draw a small volume of blood from your arm and place it in a device called a centrifuge device that spins down the blood to separate the platelets and growth factors from the rest of the blood components. The result is highly concentrated platelet rich plasma (PRP) that is then carefully injected into the shaft & into the head of the penis. Once injected, these blood-derived growth factors ignite the body’s unique tissue renewal process resulting in the type of firmer more reliable you experienced in your younger years. There is no recovery time and the results are almost immediate in some men. Full results appear in 2-3 months.
