Restore Your Erectile Function with an Intracavernous PRP Shot

Erectile dysfunction is a frustrating, embarrassing, and all-too-common problem for men. While there are many contributing factors, including mental stress, medication side effects, and hormone imbalance, one of the main causes of erectile dysfunction is reduced blood flow to your penis.

The good news is that if you’re one of the 30 million men struggling with ineffective erections, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy can help restore your erectile function 一 and it’s a service we offer in our Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, office. 

Below, Dr. Stuart Kauffman and our team here at PRP in Philadelphia discuss how PRP injections 一specifically intracavernous PRP injections 一 can help you overcome the frustration of erection dysfunction.

Learn more about the intracavernous PRP shot

The intracavernous PRP shot 一 which may also be referred to as a priapus shot or an M-PRP shot 一 is a procedure that relies on PRP to treat erectile dysfunction. Unlike other treatments for erectile dysfunction, the M-PRP shot doesn’t rely on any medications or synthetic ingredients. PRP serums are created from your own blood products. 

The goal of the M-PRP shot is to help you achieve firmer, larger, more frequent, and longer-lasting erections. 

How PRP shots help treat erectile dysfunction

PRP serum is rich in platelets, a portion of your blood that contains healing and growth factors. Platelets, also known as thrombocytes, are well-documented for their healing abilities. Each shot helps increase circulation in your penis, which ultimately helps support the health of your organ.

Benefits of intracavernous PRP injections include the following:

PRP shots help restore erectile function by supporting increased blood circulation without the need for other medications.

Preparing for your appointment

While you may look forward to the benefits of a PRP shot, it’s normal to feel a little uncertain about the procedure itself. Here at PRP in Philadelphia, your safety and comfort are our top priority. Here’s what you can expect when you arrive at our office. 

After your injection is administered, we’ll monitor you and provide any post-injection instructions you may need. Recovery is easy, but you may need to avoid sexual intercourse right after the injection to ensure there’s no infection at your injection site.

Before we get started with a treatment plan, Dr. Kauffman first determines if the PRP shot is right for you. (We also offer hormonal therapy at our practice.) Our team reviews your medical history, your specific symptoms, and your goals.
