Male sexual arousal is a complex process that involves the brain, hormones, emotions, nerves, muscles and blood vessels. Erectile dysfunction can result from imbalance with any of these body processes. Additionally, stress and anxiety can worsen erectile dysfunction.
A man is considered to have erectile dysfunction if he regularly finds it difficult getting or keeping a firm enough erection to be able to have sex, or if it interferes with other sexual activity.
Sometimes a combination of physical and psychological issues causes erectile dysfunction. So, it is important to use a comprehensive medical approach to address and rule out all potential causes. At Foothills, we consult with our patients and recommend testing based on medical history to provide the best course of treatment.
Resolve For Men, PRP Therapy, is a new procedure that can treat erectile dysfunction using platelet rich plasma. PRP Therapy is non-invasiveand doesn't carry the same risks of many traditional erectile dysfunction treatments. Platelets are naturalregenerative cells that are drawn from your blood. Treatment involves the use of the patient's own plasma, which is injected into the penile area to help heal tissues, arteries and nerves.
QUESTION: DOES IT HURT?
We use lidocaine cream topically to numb the area and the PRP stings slightly for approximately15 seconds after being injected.
