Regenerative Medicine for ED
Erectile dysfunction, or impotence, is one of the most challenging complications for men to deal with. Difficulty maintaining an erection is a physical condition with a far stronger psychological impact. It can lead to a breakdown in confidence and even result in relationship problems. Sometimes medications don’t go far enough to treat the condition and an alternative remedy is preferred.
Regenerative therapy for erectile dysfunction (ED) may be an effective approach for treating the symptoms of impotence for qualified candidates. Regenerative medicine has been used for treating ED in our Beverly Hills facial plastic and cosmetic surgery practice. Many patients treated for erectile dysfunction with regenerative medicine report restoration of function and results that last.

About Regenerative Therapy & ED
Regenerative therapy for ED in the past has primarily involved the use of adipose (or fat) derived cells injected in the erectile tissue of the penis. This article in Medical News Today discusses this approach and the incredible results patients in trials experienced.
Today, umbilical cord allograft derived cells may be used with or without platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatments for comparable or improved results. This form of human cellular and tissue-based products (HCT/P) may be preferred for its regenerative benefits, such as those potentially offered by the presence of MSCs. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) may also be recommended for its growth factors. You can learn more about regenerative medicine in our Beverly Hills office, including umbilical cord allograft and PRP, with this handy FAQ.
Similar to the approach detailed in Medical News Today, the regenerative medicine is administered through injection in the erectile tissue of the penis. Follow up platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatments may be recommended for some cases, or even additional umbilical cord allograft cell injections in other, more severe situations.
The potential benefits of regenerative therapies, like those involving umbilical cord allograft, are believed to be the reason behind the results reported in Medical News Today and other trials. What makes these therapies particularly exciting is the possibility of tissue regeneration. This goes beyond medication in simply masking the symptoms of erectile dysfunction. While treating the symptoms of ED is the goal, regenerative medicine may also result in vascular recovery and the regeneration of nerves and other tissues. Many of these tissues are involved in maintaining an erection.
Many patients report an improvement from the treatment. In one regenerative medicine trial for ED, as described in Medical News Today, all 21 out of 21 men experienced improvement in erectile function 6 months following treatment.
