The older a man is, the higher their chance of having Peyronie’s Disease. The condition may develop over time, and the result is possibly-painful curved erection that may negatively affect a man’s sex life.
Dr. Truong provides the P-Shot for Peyronie’s Disease. These PRP injections utilize your blood to change the shape of your erection to reduce symptoms. An appointment that lasts less than an hour may start your path to better sexual function.
The P-Shot (Priapus Shot) is a platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injection into the penis. PRP’s platelets release growth factors, which work on tissues to treat conditions.
To prepare the PRP, a sample of your blood is spun in a centrifuge to separate the PRP from the red and white blood cells.
Peyronie’s Disease is the significant curving of an erect penis.
A type of erectile dysfunction (ED), Peyronie’s Disease can affect a man’s ability to have sexual intercourse and cause symptoms like:
Scar tissue (plaque) in the penis causes the bending of Peyronie’s Disease. While the exact cause of this scar tissue is unknown, it is thought to result from physical injury to the penis.
