For Erectile Dysfunction, Peyronie's Disease, and Male Enhancement
Erectile Dysfunction (ED), the inability to achieve an erection strong enough for sex, is quite common. Most men will experience an occasional episode of ED at some point, but when it becomes the norm, then it is a health problem and should be taken seriously.
How Common Is Erectile Dysfunction?
Studies show persistent ED affects up to 40% of men over 40, and about 70% by age 70. The cause may be vascular (plaque buildup in arteries), often associated with diabetes or coronary artery disease, neurologic (prostate surgery or penis injury damaging the nerves), hormonal (low testosterone and other hormonal imbalances), drug side effects, or even psychological (performance anxiety or other emotional disturbance).
Regardless of the cause, this is a very distressing condition, causing a man to question his masculinity and affecting his intimate relationships.
What is the P-Shot®?
The P-Shot is a trademarked procedure done by certified physicians to rejuvenate the penis, improving erections, sensitivity, and even increasing penis size (average increase of 7mm length and girth after 1 treatment). The procedure involves producing Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) from a sample of your blood and injecting this PRP serum into the penis at several specific areas. The PRP contains many growth factors which activate stem cells in the penis, which then repair old and damaged blood vessels and nerves, thus improving erections and improving penis sensitivity during sex.
P-Shot Vs. Oral Medication
Frequently, a man will be treated with oral medications such as Viagra or Cialis, but these are not always effective, have side effects such as acid reflux, nasal congestion, headaches, interact with other drugs and alcohol, have to be taken in advance of sexual activity, and they don’t always work.
If these drugs are ineffective, a man may be prescribed drugs to be injected into the penis (Tri-mix). These injections are uncomfortable, inconvenient, and can lead to scar tissue buildup in the penis. Eventually, they may stop working as well. We offer the P-Shot as an alternative to these treatments.
Who Is A Candidate For The P-Shot?
The P-Shot is ideal for men with any stage of ED (Erectile Dysfunction), and can be combined with oral medications and the sound-wave treatment commonly called Gainswave.
The P-Shot is quite effective for treating Peyronie’s Disease-a scarring of the penis that causes the penis to deform; We recommend Gainswave be combined with the P-Shot for Peyronie’s.
Does The P-Shot Hurt?
The procedure is virtually painless as we use a skin numbing gel before the procedure and use targeted anesthetic injections to numb the penis.
When Can I Expect to See Results From The P-Shot?
Maximal results are seen 6-8 weeks after the procedure.

Erectile Dysfunction Implant
Finally, a man may be advised to have a penile implant inserted. In this surgery, the penis is cut open and the internal parts are removed and replaced with silicone balloons that must be inflated with a pump to have sex.
