The healing power of Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) for Erectile Dysfunction
More men report erectile dysfunction (ED) problems to their doctors than any other sexual problem. While it is common for men to have problems getting hard or keeping a sustained, firm erection from time to time, ED that progressively worsens or becomes more frequent requires sound treatment. Low T Guru in Frisco, Texas, is led by an authority in the diagnosis and treatment of male infertility and sexual health conditions: Dr. Jeffrey Buch.
Depending on what Dr. Buch finds during your evaluation, he may recommend Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy to restore your confidence and you and your partner’s satisfying sex lives.
Most often, ED is associated with limited blood flow in the penis. It can also arise when nerves are damaged. Stress or emotional distress and relationship issues may be to blame. Or, ED can be indicative of serious systemic illnesses – ranging from heart disease to poorly-controlled diabetes. A good rule of thumb is: If it’s good for your heart and the “rest of you,” it’s generally good for your intimate health! So, addressing risk factors for emotional, mental, and physical health problems may be in order. Or, these lifestyle-oriented recommendations can be combined with the many other cutting-edge therapies available at Low T Guru.
Platelets refer to the parts of the blood that help the red stuff clot—additionally, cytokines and growth factors aid in repairing injuries and healing tissues. At Low T Guru, we can produce a therapeutic product rich in these regenerative platelets. This process involves taking a small amount of your blood and spinning it in a machine or centrifuge. In doing so, the platelets are isolated from the blood plasma. When applied precisely and safely by Dr. Buch, PRP or “P-Shots” can enhance blood flow to the penis, stimulate the growth of new blood vessels, boost penile girth, and bolster penile length.
As an advanced specialty center, we may recommend combining P-Shots with other therapies for optimal results. Options include adding low-intensity shockwave technology (with the GAINSWave) and stem cell injections. The latter option may be appropriate for patients with more severe or persistent forms of ED.
