Erectile dysfunction (ED), or impotence, is a common type of male sexual dysfunction that can develop for a number of reasons. Once considered merely a psychological problem, evidence points to ED being caused by an underlying systemic disease such as vascular occlusion or nerve injury, in a few cases. At Gulf Coast Stem Cell & Regenerative Medicine Center in Ocean Springs, MS, we offer erectile dysfunction diagnosis and stem cell therapy for males looking to restore their erectile function.
Who Develops Erectile Dysfunction?
Many men have difficulty with erections occasionally, which may be psychological. However, when the problem becomes more frequent, it can lead to depression, low self-esteem, performance anxiety, and stress. Research indicates that nearly one-half of all American men over age 40 have experienced some degree of ED. Chronic erectile dysfunction can be an early warning sign of a more serious condition, such as diabetes, heart disease, or hypertension; hence our thorough approach.
How Can Stem Cells Treat ED?
Stem cells are a type of mother cell that has the potential to become any type of cell in the body when it grows up. They are capable of self-renewal and have the ability to repair or replace cells in the bone marrow, skeleton, heart, muscles, and brain. Treating Erectile dysfunction in Mississippi uses adipose derived stem cells to stimulate endothelial growth, repair and rejuvenate damaged and effete cells, and boost penile blood flow by restoring normal physiology.
If you are suffering from erectile problems, stem cell therapy may be the right procedure for you. In addition, we use shock wave therapy of Storz for better results.
