If erectile dysfunction is having a severe impact on your quality of life, there are effective ways to restore your sexual health. Call or book an appointment online to learn more.
Erectile dysfunction (ED) is the inability to get, and sustain, an erection long enough to have sexual intercourse.
ED is a tricky condition that can have roots in both your physical and mental health. That said, an overwhelming majority of men with ED have blood flow problems in the penis.
An erection is caused by a flood of blood to your penis during arousal, but if your circulatory system is compromised, your penis can't get enough blood to achieve or maintain an erection.
Dr. Meisenberg offers a unique, multipronged approach to erectile dysfunction, which includes:
With shockwave therapy, Dr. Meisenberg can deliver low-intensity extracorporeal shockwaves to break up plaque formation in your blood vessels and stimulate the growth of new blood vessels in the penis. This therapy increases the blood flow to the penis and improves sexual function.
Additionally, the procedure activates the growth of new nerve tissue in the penis.
With a PRP injection, Dr. Meisenberg taps the power of your platelets to:
Your platelets contain growth factors that stimulate healthy cell growth. Dr. Meisenberg harvests the platelets from your blood and creates a concentrate that he injects directly into your penis.
A dip in hormone levels, primarily testosterone, can lead to lower libido and ED. Bringing your hormone levels up with bioidentical hormone replacement therapy can restore your libido and sexual function.
Each of these therapies taps your body’s natural resources to restore health and function to your penis. Because of this, you need to allow time for your body to repair and rebuild.
Typically, that process takes several days to several months, depending on how quickly your body responds.
If erectile dysfunction is preventing you from enjoying life to its fullest, call Columbus Anti-Aging Medicine and Aesthetic Surgery, or schedule an appointment using the convenient online booking tool.
Yes! Dr. Meisenberg believes that you should focus on your sexual health before it becomes symptomatic. Shockwave therapy and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy go a long way toward encouraging good circulatory and nerve health and preventing progressive damage from building up and leading to male sexual dysfunction.
