Private GP and aesthetician Dr Kannan Athreya is reporting increasing numbers of male patients attending his clinic for the Platelet Rich Plasma sexual rejuvenation treatment known as the P Shot, and even more enquiring about the procedure.
The treatment involves harvesting the patient’s own PRP for strategic injection into the penis and glans penis. The growth factors that are activated within the PRP serve to improve local circulation and sensation, and promote neo-collagenesis.
“Most men that contact the clinic direct seem well informed and are seeking to improve erectile strength and stamina, and improve performance” Dr Athreya, who showcased this treatment along with the O-Shot in The Sun newspaper, states ” However much interest is also generated by the possibility of enhancing length and girth, with the additional use of a penile vacuum pump post procedure.”
Dr Athreya stresses the importance of patient selection and managing expectation “All patients have a thorough history and examination, and where necessary appropriate investigation such as blood sugar and testosterone levels, to explore the root causes of ED. Only after this, and with a detailed explanation and consenting procedure, is the P shot approached.”
Whilst accepting that interest will always be generated with talk of sexual stamina and size, Dr Athreya is keen to stress the therapeutic benefits ” As a GP my primary interest will be in trying to find solutions to the medical problems that my patients present with. Utiilising the P Shot, I have been able to help with conditions previously considered difficult to treat, such as Peyronies disease and Lichen Sclerosus. One patient who had an MI at an early age was debilitated with poor erections with anti hypertensive treatment. Following P Shot treatment, he expressed delight at an “unsolicited ” comment made by his wife of a firmer erection, indicating his enthusiasm to complete the suggested 3-course treatment. Another with mild peyronies reported an improvement to the curvature with the additional use of a vacuum pump within three days of his first P Shot”.
Dr Athreya believes that he is fast approaching a tipping point where there will be enough men who have sought advice or have actually had treatment to promote widespread discussion amongst the local and occasionally distant population. Indeed word has spread to get enquiries from as far away Scotland.
“With the results that I and my P Shot Colleagues are getting, coupled with the safety profile of the treatments thus demonstrated, I feel that we are on the way to the P Shot achieving as widespread an acceptance as Viagra.
Women are not excluded as they have their own rejuvenation treatment with PRP known as the O Shot, improving not only sexual arousal but also help improve stress incontinence and treat chronic dermatological conditions as Lichen Sclerosis. ” I am also combining the O Shot with The Mona Lisa Touch for vaginal atrophy and laxity, as well as scar management post procedures such as episiotomy, known to cause painful intercourse. The synergy of these treatments seems to be very promising, and I feel fortunate to be at the forefront of Sexual Rejuvenation treatments for both men and women”.
Dr Athreya said “Cultural and social taboos often prevent men and women from seeking help for problems of sexual health problems which can have a devastating impact on relationships and self-esteem. Treatments such as The O Shot and P Shot are revolutionizing the approach to sexual healthcare offering hope to men and women who would normally have quietly suffered with these problems. I am very pleased as a physician to be able to offer these treatments finally in the UK and Europe”
