Erectile Dysfunction Treatment
If you’re a man who’s experiencing erectile dysfunction, it can affect more than just your physical or sexual lifestyle. It can also impact your emotional well-being and self-esteem.
Erectile dysfunction (impotence) is the inability to get and keep an erection.
Occasional erection trouble isn’t necessarily a cause for concern. However, if erectile dysfunction is an ongoing issue, it can cause stress, affect your self-confidence, and cause relationship problems. Problems getting or keeping an erection can also be a sign of an underlying health condition that needs treatment, and it is a risk factor for heart disease.
Medical Causes of Erectile Dysfunction
The best approach to erectile dysfunction starts with your primary care physician. There are many medical conditions that may cause erectile dysfunction, and your doctor would be the best one to identify and treat them.
- Hypogonadism (low testosterone production)
- Vascular disease
- Neurological diseases
- Certain medications
Treatment for Erectile Dysfunction
Even when the underlying causes of erectile dysfunction are identified and treated, the problem can persist. The penis just doesn’t fill with blood and does not attain or maintain the rigidity needed for sex. Performance anxiety can contribute to, and perpetuate the problem.
Penile Shockwave Therapy for ED
If Viagra and Cialis pills are not working or they are too expensive and you wish not to give yourself shots in the penis, then this may be a great alternative. One solution to erectile dysfunction is to improve blood flow to the penis. We use BTL Cellutone to do just that. BTL Cellutone produces pulsed acoustical waves which in turn stimulate blood flow. It works by using acoustic shock waves to create new blood vessels in your penis which allow your penis to become firm for intercourse.
1. How does it work?
Penis-Booster therapy works by using high-frequency acoustic waves to open existing blood vessels in the penis, stimulate the growth of new blood vessels, and eliminate micro-plaque. The result is increased blood flow to the penis resulting in stronger, harder, and more sustainable erections.
2. What are the benefits?
- Get off Viagra and Cialis
- Enhances Erections
- Improves Sexual Performance
- Increases Sensation in the penis
- Spontaneous erections
3. How soon does it work?
Our first patient started having spontaneous morning erections following his second treatment session, which is something he has not had for several years.
4. What are the side effects?
There are little or no known side effects from clinical studies.
5. How many treatments are required?
Depending on your goals, as few as 6 treatments may be required. After the initial treatment course, maintenance treatments may be used to maintain results.
6. What are the treatment sessions like?
Each treatment session takes 20 – 30 minutes. They are performed in the office with no downtime. The treatments are non-invasive. You are numbed up with topical anesthetic.

How does it work?
The Priapus Shot® procedure is a quick, usually painless, 20 minutes, nonsurgical procedure. The Priapus Shot® procedure begins with numbing the penis and then a simple blood draw. Then, using a proprietary technique, platelet rich plasma is extracted from the blood and then injected into the shaft and into the head of the penis. There is no recovery time and the results are almost immediate in some men. Full results appear in 2-3 months

Your doctor or nurse will help determine if this procedure could work for you and your family. Men both on and off testosterone replacement, those with diabetes, young and old can often benefit from the Priapus Shot® procedure.
