Erectile Dysfunction (ED)
Many patients with erectile dysfunction chalk the disorder up to simply a consequence of getting older. While erectile dysfunction is more common in men over the age of seventy-five, it can actually happen at any age. Over three million men in the United States are diagnosed with erectile dysfunction each year, making it one of the most common health complaints reported by men. Erectile dysfunction can be frustrating, embarrassing, stressful, and cause strain on intimate relationships. Dr. Johnson treats men for erectile dysfunction with stem cell therapy to bring back function – and self-confidence. See our web page Stem Cell Therapy for Erectile Dysfunction (ED)
While aging may be a cause of erectile dysfunction, many other factors contribute to the disorder, as well. Physical causes of erectile dysfunction include injuries, the use of certain medications, hormonal issues, such as low testosterone, and some health conditions, like diabetes, high blood pressure, and Peyronie’s Disease. Other factors may be psychological or emotional, like stress or low-self confidential.
Whatever the cause of a patient’s erectile dysfunction, they do not have to simply just accept it as a part of life. The condition is treatable in most men, and traditional treatment options include oral medications like Viagra and Cialis, other medications that are delivered by injection or suppositories, penis pumps, and penile implants.
These therapies can be painful or may have very serious side effects. Most traditional erectile dysfunction treatments provide the patient with only short term results.
Dr. Johnson uses adipose fat stem cell therapy to give erectile dysfunction patients another option beyond just living with it, or trying to treat it to see temporary results. Fat cells are collected from the patient, separated from other tissue, and reintroduced intravenously to the patient through a very small needle inserted into the shaft of the penis. Stem cells work for erectile dysfunction treatment because they quickly go to work repairing damaged tissues in the penis that cause the condition. Stem cells found in fat are dynamic in the fact that they can fix a myriad of tissue injuries or diseases. Treatment with adipose fat stem cells provides patients with improvements in their erectile dysfunction, and in the case of patients who suffer from erectile dysfunction as a result of Peyronie’s disease, less curvature of the penis.
