This is the only viable strategy for a comprehensive, long term solution to ED.

During your evaluation, Dr. Gittens will perform a thorough health history and a targeted exam. ED can sometimes be a harbinger of an underlying issue such as diabetes or heart disease. He may also perform non invasive sensory testing which allows him to determine if your problem stems from a nerve issue. He also performs vascular testing to evaluate the blood flow that is entering and leaving your penis. This allows him to inform you if the problem is a blood flow issue.
Dr. Gittens has extensive knowledge in all treatments of ED that range from regenerative therapies like COREWAVE ™, the P-Shot® and cellular therapy which can increase the blood flow to your penis leading to stronger erections. He also may combine different more traditional therapies to obtain more effective results.

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.
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 exosomes, P-Shot®. (platelet rich plasma), COREWAVE ™ therapy and/or cellular therapy, can regain their erections without the help of Cialis, Viagra or other aids.
COREWAVE ™ Therapy
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.
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.
