Stem Cells, a Revolutionary New Treatment Option for ED

Posted on 11/20/2018 by Balanced Medical Solutions

Stem cell therapy for erectile dysfunction (ED) is one of the newest and most cutting-edge treatments available today for men suffering from this troublesome condition. Numerous studies have shown that stem cell therapy for ED can help improve this condition and can help erectile tissue regenerate and become healthier.  It is especially effective for men who suffer from ED due to penile cell tissue damage, diabetes and low testosterone (Low-T).

The reason why it is so effective is because stem cells (mesenchymal stem cells or MSCs) naturally regenerate and repair cells of the body, replacing damaged ones and restoring tissue that has been harmed.  The procedure involves injecting stem cells into the corpus cavernosum with a microneedle.  The entire procedure requires only local anesthesia and light sedation.

Men who choose this breakthrough therapy for erectile dysfunction report little postprocedural pain or discomfort. Common side effects include slight swelling, redness or bruising for 12 to 24 hours.  Positive results are usually noticeable in as little as 2-4 weeks, and improvement can continue for up to a year.

Balanced Medical Solutions is one of the only sexual medicine clinics in the Bay Area currently offering this cutting-edge therapy.  Book a initial consultation (over the phone or in person) today to find out if you are a good candidate for this procedure!
