Regenerative Medicine Treating Male Sexual Health? Yes, It’s Possible!

Some people might think that regenerative medicine is only good for healing knees, but medical advancements have been rapid and we are only scratching the surface of what’s possible. One of the most exciting uses for regenerative medicine is to help men overcome their erectile dysfunction with the Erectus Shot. We are proud to announce that Progressive Rehabilitation Medicine has been trained in the technique by the Dr Carlos Mercado’s clinic in Florida, the clinic that pioneered it. But what is it exactly? To start, we need to understand erectile dysfunction.

Erectile dysfunction, or ED, is when a man is unable to achieve or maintain an erection during sexual intercourse. This is typically caused by the inability for blood to flow into the penis. This is due to the failure of the muscles in the penis to contract and relax as a result of damage to the supporting tissue in the penis known as the trabeculae. Causes can include diabetes, heart disease, hypertension, and many others. One of the newest procedures scientifically proven to be effective is performed with regenerative medicine.

The Erectus Shot is an outpatient procedure performed at our clinic. Firstly, we extract a small amount of fat (adipose) cells from the patient’s body. Adipose is a rich source of stem cells that we can take straight from the body, avoiding any risk of rejection or other concerns. Following a successful harvesting procedure of your regenerative adipose cells, we can apply local anaesthesia on the patient’s penis before performing a careful injection of the regenerative cells. The effects have been well-documented in scientific research: they can regenerate into various needed cells such as tissue in the penis, restoring penile tissue quality.

Scientists have reported a restoration and an improvement in blood flow velocity following regenerative cell injections into the penis from 22 cm/seconds to 70 cm/seconds, which is the number needed to achieve an erection.

If you have failed and tried typical treatments for ED then you may be a candidate for this procedure. We would need to do a consultation to find out if this would be right for your specific situation.
