Low-Intensity Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (LI-ESWT) is a novel modality recently used for treating erectile dysfunction (ED). Unlike other treatment options available for ED, all of which are termed palliative in nature, LI-ESWT is quite unique in that it aims to restore the erectile mechanism to help enable natural or spontaneous erections.
Studies have shown that Extracorporeal Shockwave therapy (ESWT) has been clinically investigated and applied in several medical fields with various degrees of success. The results of our studies, which also included a double-blind, randomized control trial, confirm that LI-ESWT generates a significant clinical improvement in erectile function and a significant improvement in penile hemodynamics without any adverse effects. The management of ED has remarkably evolved during the last decade, and achieving high-quality erections has become reasonably simple for some men with ED since the introduction of Shockwave Therapy. Our Shockwave Therapy Denver team is available to determine if you are a good candidate for this treatment.
Most men will tell you that their penis is the most critical organ in their body. Of course, while this is not precisely true for everyday physiologic survival, the proper and reliable function of the penis plays a significant role in intimate relationships. Difficulty achieving or maintaining an erection and concerns about the penile size, shape, and curvature, with or without pain, can affect one’s self-esteem and create significant stress between partners.
Our bodies have a remarkable capacity to heal themselves. The natural production of stem cells accomplishes the regeneration of new tissue. Exosomes involve Billions of growth factors, proteins, and cytokines to stimulate cellular regeneration and accelerate tissue repair. The benefits of Exosomes were initially used in wound healing, dentistry, and the treatment of sports injuries but now have evolved to address aesthetic concerns and sexual dysfunction (erectile dysfunction and Peyronie’s Disease for men). Exosomes are one of the most advanced, effective natural treatments for cellular repair and rejuvenation throughout the body.
The name P-Shot® is a shortened version of the Priapus Shot®. Dr. Charles Runels coined it after he first injected his own penis. He felt that Priapus, the Greek god of male regenerative power, perfectly represented his goal.
The growth factors, cytokines & proteins released by the high concentration of Exosomes activate stem cells and stimulate cellular repair and regeneration wherever they are applied in the body. In addition, collagen production and the formation of new blood vessels occur and further aid in tissue repair.
The Exosome injection is performed in our office. It should take about 30 – 45 minutes from start to finish, but we usually allow a little extra time. You may drive yourself home after the procedure.
Yes. Using a VED, or Vacuum Erection Device, can be essential for achieving optimal success from the procedure. This is usually done twice daily for one week. It requires only a few minutes of your time.
You may resume sexual activity about five days after the procedure.
Q: How much downtime is there?
A: Most men return to normal activities the same day, including (some) exercise.
Q: Is it painful?
A: We use a topical anesthetic that almost eliminates the pain of the injections. Most men do not experience pain following the procedure, but those who generally do mild and can quickly treat it with Tylenol.
Q: What can I expect for results?
A: It is essential to know that not everyone will have the same results. However, the average increase in size has been 1/2 – 3/4 of an inch in length and proportionate increases in girth. Additionally, for many men, there is an increase in sensitivity and quality of ejaculation.
Q: When will I see the results?
A: It will take 2-6 weeks to achieve maximum results.
Q: How often can the treatment be done?
A: While no specific repeat treatment protocol exists, some men who have experienced positive results have returned for additional treatments in 12 – 24 months.
