The ReFirm™ procedure may provide a better quality of life for patients suffering from erectile dysfunction who do not respond to standard treatment, want to reduce their dependency on medication, or are looking for natural or alternative options.
Erectile Dysfunction (ED), or the inability to achieve or sustain an erection for sexual intercourse, eventually affects almost all men at some point in their life.
THE BENEFITS OF REFIRM TREATMENT
Adult stem cells from a patient’s own bone marrow harness the ability of the body to repair itself.
Clinical research involving adult stem cell therapy for erectile dysfunction has shown encouraging results.
At New You Medical Health & Surgery Center, our regenerative medicine experts have observed improvement in many patients’ quality of life following therapy at our clinic for regenerative erectile dysfunction treatment.
Adult stem cell therapy and platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy is a suitable option for the treatment of erectile dysfunction because of the cells’ ability to repair and regenerate nerve cells and endothelial cells (cells lining blood vessels) by differentiating into these specialized types of cells.
Additionally, stem cells from bone marrow contain substances that have potent anti-inflammatory properties, which provide a more favorable environment for healing and repair.
Platelet rich plasma, or PRP is used in conjunction with adult stem cells to improve the treatment result. PRP uses the healing growth factors found in your own blood to initiate connective tissue regeneration and improved function.
Patients have reported the following benefits for ReFirm treatment:
- Increased blood flow and circulation
- Increased sensitivity
- Improved ability to achieve and sustain an erection
- Reduction in urinary incontinence
- Improved girth or penis length
- Improved sexual satisfaction and performance
Our goal is to provide our patients customized care and individualized treatment strategies based on their overall health. Out stem cell treatments have the potential to improve the quality of life for our patients suffering from erectile dysfunction. Stem cell therapy is a same-day outpatient procedure which takes place at our accredited surgery center.
The treatment consists of a bone marrow extraction from the patient’s hip by board certified physicians.
Also, a small blood sample is drawn from a vein in your arm. This sample will be processed along with your stem cells.
Using well established protocols and processing methods, the stem cells are concentrated from bone marrow by experienced lab technicians in our onsite laboratory. The blood sample is processed to concentrate the healing growth factors.
The stem cells and PRP combination are then injected into the areas of the penis that are responsible for erectile function and sexual arousal under local anesthesia using ultrasound guidance. The procedure takes approximately 2-3 hours from start to finish.
Follow-up visits to monitor progress occur one month, three months, and six months following treatment.
