Erectile Dysfunction, known as ED, affects almost 20% of adult men in the US. It is defined as the inability to get and/or maintain an erection. Overall ED affects about thirty million men in the US.
The problem may start as soon as the age of 40 and increases each decade thereafter. It also increases with smoking, obesity, cardiovascular disease, diabetes or high blood pressure. There are a variety of reasons men experience chronic erectile dysfunction which can either be physical, psychological or both:
According to the National Institute of Health, between fifteen and twenty five percent of 65 year old men suffer from ED. That number continues to increase with age!
Before letting the problem turn into the proverbial elephant in the bedroom, you should consider what the latest in modern medicine has to offer for a long term solution.
Traditional treatments for ED have been effective, but are not typically long term. These may include weight loss, stopping smoking/drinking, prescription medications, vacuum pumps and penile implants. Recent advancements with regenerative medicine have been groundbreaking for ED and have been providing results that have been much longer lasting.
The benefits of regenerative therapies for ED include the development of new blood vessels while helping to repair and regenerate damaged tissues. Several studies looking at regenerative procedures for ED have shown exceptional outcomes (references below). This includes platelet rich plasma therapy (PRP) along with stem cell procedures. Research studies to date have shown exceptional long term sustained results on erectile function with increased blood flow after the stem cell treatment.
The protocols used in the studies, which are similar to that at R3’s Centers of Excellence, offer PRP and stem cells along with either shock wave therapy and/or a vacuum pump. Just as in the studies, patients are often able to eliminate the need for prescription medications or possibly improve to a point where prescription medications start to work again where they were ineffective before. Most patients are able to achieve spontaneous erection shortly after treatment begins. While the treatments do not provide a cure, the results are typically long lasting.
R3 Stem Cell’s Centers of Excellence are now offering effective, safe and innovative stem cell therapy for erectile dysfunction. The erectile dysfunction treatment works for patients of all ages, and often eliminates the need for ED medications.
