Treatment Options for Erectile dysfunction (ED)

At our centers we have a multi-dimensional approach to your ED. We will identify risk factors that may be the cause of your erectile difficulties. Depending on your individual problem, we will recommend a treatment plan that may contain lifestyle modifications, medication alterations, erectile function medications and possible hormonal manipulation.

Regen E.D. (Stem Cells, COREWAVE, P-Shot)

By using the state of the art treatments using regenerative therapy for the penis can lead to natural erections again.  Many men after treatments such as the P-Shot®.  (platelet rich plasma), COREWAVE therapy and/or stem cells, can  regain their erections without the help of cialis, viagra or other aids.   Learn more about Regen E.D.


COREWAVE Therapy uses acoustic waves to stimulate the growth of new blood vessels and improve nitric oxide formation leading to a more natural and improved erection.   Learn more about COREWAVE Therapy.

Oral Therapy for Erectile dysfunction (ED)

There are four oral medications that are FDA approved for the treatment of erectile dysfunction. These classes of medications are called phosphodiesterase inhibitors (PDE5).

Intraurethral Medication for ED

Another alternative for erectile dysfunction are medicated urethral suppositories, also known as MUSE. This is administered directly into the penile urethra through a specialized applicator system and is then absorbed directly into the penis. After using MUSE, erection can occur within ten minutes.

Vacuum Erection Device for ED

The vacuum erection device works by placing a cylinder over the penis and applying negative (vacuum) pressure. After the penis becomes engorged with blood, an erection is formed. A band is then placed at the base of the penis and the cylinder is removed to have intercourse.

Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy

PRP stimulates a man’s own growth factors in his blood to recruit his body’s stem cells to the penis causing regeneration of tissue and blood vessels. Learn more about PRP.

Intracavernosal Injections

Penile injections are an effective solution for treating erectile dysfunction. By using a combination of medications directly placed into the penis, a sustainable erection can be achieved. The medications Dr. Gittens uses are tailored to the individual patient’s erectile needs.
