PLATELET RICH PLASMA
FOR THE TREATMENT OF ED

PRP

One of the newest and most novel approaches to the treatment of Erectile Dysfunction is a form of regenerative medicine in which a patient's own platelet rich plasma or PRP is injected into his penis.  PRP, which was first used to promote wound healing and to treat various sports injuries, is now being used to treat erectile dysfunction and Peyronies disease.

The procedure usually takes about 45 minutes.  First blood is drawn from the patient's arm in much the same way as it is drawn for routine blood tests.  This blood is then spun down in a centrifuge which separates the platelets and plasma from the rest of the blood.  After numbing the penis with a local anesthetic, the platelet rich plasma is then injected back into the man's penis.  The procedure is generally well tolerated and relatively painless.

The goal of the PRP is to stimulate new tissue growth through cellular regeneration, which should lead to firmer and more frequent erections.  Many men find that after a PRP procedure on the penis, that they have increased sensitivity, increased size and improved erections.  While some men see results from the PRP immediately after the procedure, some of the benefits may take 2-3 months.  Some men see results after one PRP treatment and others need one or more additional PRP treatments before they achieve the benefits of PRP.

As with any regenerative medicine treatment, the results of PRP vary from patient to patient.  While many men are extremely happy with the results, others see no benefit from  the procedure.

While the injection of a patient's own PRP into his penis is relatively safe, as with any injection, possible side effects include discomfort, bruising, bleeding, inflammation and infection.

While several studies have shown that PRP appears to assist in the body's healing process, no study has conclusively determined the effectiveness of PRP for the treatment of erectile dysfunction. That said, there are studies suggesting that PRP injected into the penis makes other methods of treatment of ED more effective and often increases both the sensation and girth of the penis.  There are also some early findings that PRP may help treat Peyronies disease.

The use of PRP to treat erectile dysfunction and Peyronies disease is not yet FDA approved.

There are many clinics that offer PRP for a variety of medical conditions and some of them use specific words or names in their marketing and advertising to describe their PRP procedure for injection into the penis. Not all PRP is the same.  We only use PRP kits, equipment and supplies that ensure both sterility and a high yield of platelets in the PRP.


Because PRP treatment for ED and/or Peyronies disease is time consuming and requires specialized equipment and supplies, it is fairly expensive.

Our current charge for PRP is $800.
