The Priapus, or P-shot, is a safe and effective non-surgical solution to erectile dysfunction. The P-shot uses the power of platelet-rich plasma to rejuvenate and repair penile tissue.
Getting a P-shot is a quick, outpatient procedure. There’s minimal downtime, and you can return to work or other routine activities following your appointment.
At Center for Urology, Dr. Woods uses the P-shot to treat various men’s sexual health problems, including:
You might also benefit from the P-shot if you’re unhappy with your sexual function or performance.
A P-shot appointment begins with a comprehensive physical exam, a discussion of your lifestyle and goals for treatment, and a review of your medical history. Dr. Woods then draws a sample of your blood and puts it into a machine called a centrifuge. The centrifuge spins at a rapid pace, separating the platelets from the rest of your blood.
Mr. Woods applies a topical numbing cream to your penis, transfers your platelets into a syringe, and administers several quick injections. Many patients report little to no pain with P-shot treatment.
The high concentration of platelets increases blood flow to your penis, repairs damaged nerves and tissue cells, and creates new neural pathways to increase sensitivity and pleasure.
The P-shot is safe and usually well-tolerated. Following your injections, it’s normal to experience mild side effects for a day or two, including swelling, redness, and bruises. As your body heals, avoid having sexual intercourse for at least a couple of days. You should also avoid strenuous exercise or physically demanding activities like bending and lifting.
The results of the P-shot vary depending on your health history and the cause of your erectile dysfunction. Many men experience a significant improvement in their symptoms after just one shot. Other men require several P-shot injections over several months.
Be patient and follow Dr. Woods’ instructions carefully. It can take up to three or four months* to achieve your desired outcomes, but the wait is well worth it.
