But things have changed since 1998. People don’t use dial-up to access the internet, bucket hats aren’t cool, and pills are no longer the best option on the market if you suffer from ED.
If you’re considering treatment for erectile dysfunction, here’s three approaches that have kept up with the times and may be more effective than popping a pill.
WAVE therapy involves sending gentle, low-energy acoustic wave pulses in to the penis to increase blood flow. It’s an outpatient treatment that involves zero sedation, medication, or invasive surgery. The process is designed to “wake up” stem cells and other growth factors in the penis. It creates new blood vessels from existing ones and revitalizes tissue, increasing blood-flow and leading to strong and sustainable erections.
Since the waves used are a very low-frequency, the procedure is painless and carries no risks or side effects. We have patients who have seen improvement in erectile function with a single treatment!
Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy
Platelet-rich plasma therapy (PRP), or Priapus, is an all-natural, platelet-rich plasma treatment that stimulates natural growth of the penis (both girth and length), and heightens sensation. While the treatment can alleviate some symptoms of erectile dysfunction, it’s not just for those afflicted by ED. PRP can help men who have been afflicted by prostate cancer, diabetes, Peyronie’s Disease (curving of the penis), or even men who just want to increase size and amplify sexual sensation.
PRP has a simple application process, no negative side effects, and is administered by the trained physicians at the Memphis Men’s Clinic.
Testosterone replacement therapy
As time goes on, many men will naturally experience a decrease in their testosterone levels. Low testosterone, or low-T, can cause a loss of libido, decreased energy, and erectile dysfunction. Customized treatment plans can be created for specific individuals depending on their testosterone levels and symptoms.
In most cases, testosterone replacement therapy has been able to counteract the effects of decreased testosterone and improve sexual performance in men while also improving muscle tone and energy levels. Many patients also report an improved overall outlook on life.
You don’t have to plan your sex life around the time schedule that pills dictates. Any of these treatments can create a more permanent solution — not just a band-aid — for ED. Talk to our doctor if you’re serious about a finding a long-lasting resolution.
