PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma, which is part of your blood that’s rich in growth factors. PRP stimulates your body’s natural ability to regenerate new cells. Urology experts at Comprehensive Urology also offer stem cell therapy to enhance your results. They might use noninvasive GAINSWave treatment in conjunction with PRP or stem cell therapy.
Specialists at Comprehensive Urology might recommend PRP, stem cell therapy, or other forms of regenerative medicine to improve:
Regenerative medicine stimulates your body’s ability to heal and regenerate new cells. It’s a natural treatment that might help you avoid invasive procedures or the need for harsh medications.
To find out if you’re a candidate for PRP, stem cell therapy, GAINSWave therapy, or multiple treatments to improve urinary and sexual health, your doctor reviews your medical history and asks about symptoms you may have.
They also complete a physical examination and might recommend blood tests, urine tests, imaging procedures, or other diagnostic tests.
If PRP is the right treatment for you, your Comprehensive Urology provider takes a blood sample from your arm. They isolate PRP from the rest of your blood by spinning it in a centrifuge.
While you rest in a comfortable chair, they numb the treatment area, so you don’t feel any pain. They inject PRP or stem cells into vaginal tissues in women and the penis in men.
RPP treatment doesn’t require any downtime so that you can go about your normal daily routine right away. You might experience tenderness or soreness at the injection site that soon subsides.
Your urologist may recommend you undergo a series of multiple PRP or stem cell injections to ensure the best outcome. They might combine low-intensity shockwave therapy (LISWT) with PRP. Over time you can expect tissue regeneration, improvements in sexual function and sensation, and decreased urinary incontinence.
Don’t live with urinary or sexual problems when simple, noninvasive treatments are within reach. Schedule an appointment today with urology specialists at Comprehensive Urology by phone or online to find out if PRP is right for you.
