Who is a good candidate for the procedure?

This procedure is for anyone who has experienced a decline in sexual functions as a natural consequence of aging.

Prostate Cancer Patient

The nerves and blood vessels that control the physical aspect of an erection are incredibly delicate, and any trauma to the area will result in changes. Though prostate cancer is not a cause of erectile dysfunction, treatments for the disease can cause the problem.

Accident Trauma

Following multiple trauma, spinal injury, or TBI, it is not unusual for some men to go through a period of reduced sexual drive (reduced libido). Car accident or motorcycle accident trauma can cause vascular damage in the penis and result in erectile dysfunction.

Diabetes Patient

ED is common in men with diabetes, especially those with type 2 diabetes. It can stem from damage to nerves and blood vessels caused by poor long-term blood sugar control. Average of 6 moths after procedure patients gain blood supply to the penis and full control of erection.
