What exactly is Erectile Dysfunction?
Erectile Dysfunction (ED) is the inability to attain or maintain penile erection sufficient for satisfactory sexual performance. As you age, your risk of ED increases which may be caused by blood flow issues. This is common in men to due to the natural aging process. Also, patients that have experienced surgery, prostate problems, and other male health issues can experience increased ED. Other causes of ED include psychosocial issues such as performance anxiety, relationship problems, depression, stress, and other underlying factors including neurological factors.
Male Health Q & A at Dr. Rogers Centers
What are the causes of ED?
Endocrine issues such as Low Testosterone, Thyroid problems, Diabetes, Chronic liver or renal failure, Atherosclerosis, and others can cause the erectile dysfunction. Most of the time, there is a vascular, blood flow issue that is evident in ED and it due to the natural loss of aging. In that case, you may be a candidate for platelet rich therapy as a treatment for improving your sexual performance.
Why it’s important to diagnose ED first before any treatments?
It’s important to have a physical exam to make sure there are not any other causes for ED. By contacting Dr. Askew first, you may be able to identify other factors that might be underlying health issues. When you show symptoms of erectile dysfunction such as difficulty achieving erections and loss of rigidity it may be due to common and natural aging issues, but we help you identify these issues in a secure and confidential environment.
What are the top non-surgical treatments for Erectile Dysfunction?
Dr. Wendy Askew is fully trained in the administration of the top non-surgical treatments for erectile dysfunction known as the The Priapus Shot® or “PShot.®”
She is highly regarded in her community for her sexual health expertise and has been applying the P Shot to qualified patients for over 3 years. The PShot® was originally developed by Dr.Charles Runels, MD., and helps to improve ED, especially in men who have lost function due to an enlarged prostate, prostate cancer, the after-effects of surgery, drug side effects and other conditions.
How does the P-Shot work?
The P-Shot is a non-surgical, short procedure that is quick with minimal pain. It begins with numbing the penis and then a simple blood draw. Then, using a proprietary technique platelet rich plasma (PRP) is extracted from the blood and then injected into the shaft and into the head of the penis. There is no downtime, you may resume your normal daily activities and the results are almost immediate in some men.
What Can I Expect with the PShot®?
Most men see improvements immediately. It is common to see desired results within 6-8 weeks after the treatment. In addition to improved sensation, and sexual satisfaction, the P-Shot has shown some success in treating a painful condition called Peyronie’s Disease that results in scarring and abnormal bending and curvature of the penis. Possible results and benefits of the P-Shot® include:
- Increased circulation and function
- Increased sensation and pleasure
- Makes other therapies work better (Viagra or Cialis)
Dr. Rogers Centers are licensed, trained, and use board-certified doctors to administer the P-Shot for penile rejuvenation.
