Erectile dysfunction (ED) also called as Impotence is defined as the repeated inability to achieve and maintain an erection sufficient to permit satisfactory sexual intercourse. The cause of Erectile Dysfunction is always associated with the penile arteries, smooth muscles, and fibrous tissues. ED may also result from Psychological, Neurological & Hormonal causes as well.
The following conditions account for around 75% for ED Causes….
- Chronic Alcoholism, Smoking
- Chronic Renal Disease
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Age related ED
Penile erection is a neurovascular event innervated by autonomic and somatic nerves modulated by psychological and hormonal status. The pudendal nerve is responsible for penile sensation and the contraction and relaxation of the bulbocavernosus and ischiocavernosus striated muscles.

After assessing the therapeutic needs and goals of the patient and his partner, further diagnostic and treatment options should be contemplated. Consideration should be given to the patient’s physical and mental health as well as his motivation and sexual needs. The patient’s performance status and cardiovascular health need to be evaluated, if necessary in consultation with a cardiologist, in order to assess the patient’s ability to tolerate sexual activity. Occasionally, a change in life-style or medications may be all that is needed to restore potency.
After the basic clinical examination, proper history analysis as well as diagnostic parameters, we at Stem Rx Bio-science Solutions confirm the final diagnosis of the patient. Then depending on the cause of ED, the final treatment protocol is prepared.
We treat ED with Autologous Stem Cells, which are potential for multiple cell types transformation as well as are capable of regenerating the damaged cells. Stem cells are implanted through Intra-cavernous injections or Intra-Penile artery injections.
