Platelet-Rich Plasma is prepared by taking a small sample of blood and subjecting it to centrifugation (spinning the blood sample at a high rate of speed), which separates red blood cells and white blood cells from the remaining plasma. The remaining plasma is “packed” with platelets that remain behind, hence the term Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP). PRP contains numerous Growth Factors which have the ability to promote the repair and healing of damaged or injured tissue throughout the body.
is Platelet-Rich Plasma that contains numerous Growth Factors (GFs) that are capable of promoting repair, self-healing and rejuvenation of damaged or injured tissues. PRP, when injected into the corpora cavernosa, results in the formation of new blood vessels, healthier penile tissue and stronger, harder, more sustaining erections.
There are many factors that can influence the number of PRP treatments required, including your goals, the severity of your ED, age, health status and other concurrent therapies being offered. While it can be used by itself, more often than not, it is used in combination with other therapies such as RejuvaPulse™ or Stem-Cell Therapy. An average of two to six PRP applications are often required before lasting improvement is observed. Generally speaking, the more severe the ED, the more treatment you will need.

The physicians at Boston Medical Group adhere to The Boston Method®. The method itself is based on the unique understanding that treating sexual dysfunction requires a personalized assessment and treatment program for each patient, rather than a one size fits all approach that is often overly simplistic and ineffective as a result. In order to create the most comfortable patient experience and optimal treatment outcome, The Boston Method® places a special emphasis on three important factors: a confidential experience in the medical center, the evaluation of each patient’s medical history and diagnostic testing, and the determination of the most appropriate treatment options specifically for each patient.
