Consequences of Erectile Dysfunction

Maintaining your sexual health is important for the maintenance of your relationship as well as your mental and physical health. Sexual intimacy is the physical bond that maintains a relationship. It’s also an expression of loving and caring. Couples who have regular sexual relations often live healthier, happier and even longer lives. ED causes serious distress by its negative effects on the man’s self-esteem and relationships.  One in five men believe that their relationship ended because of erectile dysfunction.  This distress is only worsened when there is no response to the oral medications usually prescribed for erectile dysfunction.  At Pittsburgh Stem Cell we work to help you attain your goal. Helping you regain your sexual health and wellness will help you keep at the top of your game physically and mentally.

Testosterone therapy may be the key to restoring sexual drive and function. Many men in their 40s and 50s suffer from low testosterone. Unfortunately, many insurance plans do not cover testosterone replacement therapy in most cases of low T.   Doctor Wharton is an expert at testosterone replacement therapy. He is skilled in the use of testosterone pellets which provide three months of continuous therapy. Pittsburgh Stem Cell has staff that are able to train patients to properly administer injections.


Comprehensive Therapies

Oral medications:

Cialis is now available in a generic medication, Tadalafil. It can also be compounded with another medication and may provide an enhanced feeling of well-being and the physical results for which Tadalafil is known.

Compounded gels:

Compounded urethral gel solutions can be placed into the opening of penis where they are rapidly absorbed and work to reverse erectile dysfunction. This may provide great support for soft erections and work much quicker than an oral tablet.

Injectable medications:

TriMix is a compounded medication that is injected directly into the side of the penis and is specifically compounded to provide the best concentration for the patient. This medication may have its beneficial effects within a matter of minutes.

PRP Injection of the Penis:

Doctor Wharton has been providing PRP injection of the penis to relieve ED for over 6 years. He is also able to provide a nerve block which makes for a painless procedure.

Gainswave therapy:

Pittsburgh Stem Cell is a certified provider for Gainswave therapy. Published articles show that this therapy has been proven to be beneficial for the entire spectrum from soft erections to erectile dysfunction. In fact, many men in their 20s and 30s embrace the Gainswave therapy to optimize their sexual performance and enjoyment.

Peptide Therapy:

These short-chain proteins offer fantastic results that may restore energy, vigor, muscle mass and sexual function. We are now treating our patients with a breakthrough peptide that has been developed to assist both men and women with their sexual response.

Stem Cell Therapies:

At Pittsburgh Stem Cell we are a member of the Cell Surgical Network which has over 50 centers worldwide. The stem cell treatments that we offer are part of an investigational study, so we are closely tracking our results to provide information on the outcomes of treatments. The Department of Health and Human Services has appointed an Institutional Review Board (IRB) which monitors these studies for patient safety. Since these studies are investigational, insurance coverage for payment is not an option.

The Cell Surgical Network has published 8 articles on stem cell therapy and expects another publication later in 2019.
