Treating Erectile Dysfunction

P-Shot / Priapus Shot / Platelet Rich Plasma

P-Shot is a safe and effective procedure to improve erection quality. Blood is taken from your arm and spun in a centrifuge to isolate Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) containing growth factors. The PRP and growth factors are then injected into the penis to rejuvenate the penis, increasing the blood flow and improving the erection quality.

  • Long-lasting effect up to 18 months

  • 20-minute procedure with no recovery time

  • Safe and minimal pain

  • Significant clinical benefit is possible 2-3 weeks following treatment
  • Can be combined with Shockwave Therapy

Likely Benefits

  • Increased Erection Firmness

To date there have been more than 10 clinical studies into the effectiveness of PRP in Erectile Dysfunction, however a number of these studies had limitations.

There has only been one randomised, double blind, placebo-controlled study evaluating the effects of PRP in men with mild and moderate ED. This was conducted by Poulios et al. and published in 2021, and is the highest quality study to date.

“The primary outcome was the proportion of men who achieved the “minimal clinically important difference (MCID)” in the International Index of Erectile Function (IIEF5) from baseline to 6 months, as well as the safety of the injections. [At] 6 months, 69% of men in the PRP group vs. 27% of the men in the placebo group [emphasis added] achieved MCID (risk difference of 42%, P < 0.001).

Statistically significant results were also achieved at the 1- and 3-month follow-up period.” Anastasiadis E, Ahmed R, Khoja AK, Yap T. 2022.
