OPTIMIZATION

FOR MEN

SCSO for men is a non-surgical proprietary technology that uses the regenerative properties of PRP with or without fat-derived stem cells and exosomes to deliver lasting improvements in male sexual performance. Like SCSO for women, a topical numbing cream is applied before the procedure so discomfort is minimal.

All SCSO for men procedures also includes a treatment of low-intensity extracorporeal shockwave therapy (GAINSWave) prior to injections to maximize the benefits of the stem cells and PRP.

Experiences vary but men commonly report the following benefits:

  • Improved blood flow and firmness of erections

  • Increased sensation and pleasure

  • Enhanced appearance

  • Improved sexual stamina and capabilities

  • Improvement in symptoms of Peyronie’s Disease

  • More reliable erections

These therapies are based on the premise that: 1) sexual dysfunction is largely a circulatory issue, and 2) a major mechanism of action of site-specific injection of stem cells is the growth of new, healthy vasculature and thereby a return to adequate circulation.

WHY MEDICATE WHEN YOU CAN REJUVENATE? Return to sexual peak performance without pills, needles or surgery!

As men get older, it’s common to note certain changes in erections. Maybe you have erectile dysfunction (ED) or maybe you just have a little less function than you used to.

What if you could regain the firm, forceful, long-lasting erections of your youth? What if you could “be ready” any time of the day or night? What if you could improve not just your next erection, but every erection?

WHO IS A CANDIDATE
FOR GAINSWAVE?

  • Men with erectile dysfunction or erectile “less function”.

  • Men with Peyronie’s Disease

  • Any man desiring sexual optimization and peak performance

BENEFITS OF GAINSWAVE:

  • Spontaneous, natural erections in as little as 3 weeks.

  • No pills, needles or surgery required.

  • Non-invasive, painless, safe

  • No downtime

  • 20 min per session

  • Over 80% Patient Satisfaction

WHAT IS                        ?

GAINSWave is a protocol that uses acoustic waves (also called low-intensity extracorporeal shockwave therapy: LI-ESWT) to stimulate the tissues of the penis, resulting in increased blood flow and stronger, longer-lasting erections. Unlike other therapies currently available for ED, GAINSWave gets to the root of the damage.

Acoustic wave therapy has been used safely and effectively in Europe for erectile dysfunction for more than a decade and has dozens of medical studies to back it up.

GAINSWave uses high-intensity sound waves (aka “shockwaves”) to increase blood flow, recruit stem cells and increase nitric oxide, resulting in firmer, longer-lasting, more reliable erections.

As men age, several changes occur in the penis that can be problematic over time. The arteries that supply the penis with blood can become compromised, resulting in problems getting an erection. The smooth muscle cells that line parts of the penis can also become damaged, resulting in the inability to maintain an erection.

Current treatments for erectile dysfunction focus on trying to temporarily increase blood flow in the penis, but they don’t correct the underlying problems. That’s where GAINSWave comes in!

By applying acoustic wave therapy to the penis, several physiologic changes occur, including:

  • Growth factors signal new blood vessel formation in the penis.

  • Nitric oxide production increases, providing stronger erections.

  • Recruitment of stem cells to the area offers natural repair of damaged cells and tissue.

  • Stimulation of the growth of nerve tissue results in enhanced sensitivity of the penis.

Questions

Is stem cell therapy a "miracle cure"?


No. While stem cell therapy shows promise in the rapidly growing body of scientific data, it has not been scientifically proven to be effective. Based on full-time stem cell therapy experience since 2014, we are very careful to only treat patients that we think we have a chance of helping. Namely; patients who are in overall good health who wish to improve the health of their skin, hair and sexual organs using the healing power of their own bodies. We do not treat any systemic disease at all. While we have helped many people, there are people we have treated that we have not helped at all. Our experience is that overall, we help more people than we don't help, but there is nothing about stem cell therapy that is either a "miracle" or a "cure".To add a new question go to app settings and press "Manage Questions" button.




What are the risks of the procedures?


There are very few risks involved. You are certain to be sore for a few days after the procedure, but that is a side effect, not a risk. Temporary bruising, redness and swelling are common after Dr Killen's procedures but generally improve within a week. Infection is a serious risk, but is extremely rare. The biggest risk of these therapies is that they won't help your condition, however, performed properly, they will not make your condition worse.




Does insurance cover these procedures?


Short answer: no. Long answer: stem cell therapy and PRP are considered experimental procedures. While some insurance companies will pay for platelet rich plasma or bone marrow aspirate concentrate when used by a surgeon in conjunction with certain orthopedic surgeries, they generally do not pay when used as an injection. For this reason, Docere Medical has a 'payment at the time of service' policy.




Do the Stem Cells come from my bone marrow, from my fat, or from both?


Upon establishing that you are indeed a candidate for treatment, we will decide whether to harvest stem cells from your bone marrow (BMAC), from your fat (ADSC), or from both. Most of our patients at Docere Medical opt to use stem cells from fat for their procedures. PLEASE NOTE - due to changes in the regulatory environment, we plan to totally discontinue the use of ADSC by November, 2020. Clearly, if you have too little subcutaneous fat to consider lipoaspiration, then ADSC is not an option and we will opt instead for BMAC alone or for not using any of your own stem cells. If you have a history of bone or blood cancer, we opt for ADSC suspended in platelet rich plasma. In addition to stem cells, Docere Medicine uses Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) in most of our procedures. We are also able to use Exosomes and Polycyte (growth factors from umbilical cords), often in combination with PRP and stem cells, although Exosomes, Polycyte, and PRP can also be used alone in patient's not wishing to have their own stem cells harvested.




Do you have an Anesthesiologist so I can sleep through the whole thing?


Yes. We contract with board certified anesthesiologists to offer our patients 'deep sedation'. Deep sedation uses much gentler medications than general anesthesia, but you are very much asleep, you don't feel anything, and you don't remember anything afterward. It is the same type of sedation used for colonoscopies or dental procedures. It is our experience that we get better outcomes when people sleep through it. As such, our prices are structured so that sedation is included in the cost of treatment; you are not required to be sedated, but you are paying for it, so why not do it?




How many treatments will I want to do and how often will I receive them?


Results vary, and unfortunately we don't help everyone. Based on our overall experience, at the one-year mark after an ADSC/BMAC treatment, some of our patients are still going strong with major improvement and do not request a second treatment at that time. Others have had mild improvement and may request a second treatment. Once we get people where they want to be, most people require tune-up treatments every two to six years. Some of our patients are "non-responders" and have no improvement at all. Factors include patient health/habits, adherence to post-treatment guidelines, and severity of the condition. Additionally, many patients have seen benefit from following up their stem cell procedure with PRP injections. If patients choose to use PRP injections afterwards to further activate stem cells, we recommend waiting 4-6 weeks in between treatments.




How soon might I notice improvement?


These therapies are intended to stimulate the growth and repair tissues. Typically, patients notice improvement after four to eight weeks and continue to notice continual improvement months after the treatment. Hair procedures often take longer to see results, as much as 6 months in some people.




How will I feel immediately after the treatment?


After the procedure, you will have localized soreness and discomfort, especially after lipoaspiration. Injections in the hair, face and sexual organs may cause mild discomfort for a few days but symptoms are generally mild. Most patients find over-the-counter medications and rest sufficient to help with the pain. Facial rejuvenation procedures leave skin red and moderately swollen. Bruising is also possible, especially around the eyes and mouth. Post-procedure ointments and recommendations on skincare will be provided. Arnica and Bromelian creams may also help with bruising. Patients are allowed to wear make-up the day after the procedure and must wear sunblock daily for 3 months to avoid hyperpigmentation. Sexual optimization patients may feel swelling and mild discomfort in the genitalia for a few days. Patients will be provided with devices for home use to encourage blood flow and further improve healing. These devices are generally used in the three months following the procedure.




Are the results permanent?


Unless you are a vampire, nothing in this life is permanent. The treatments we offer are intended to reverse tissue damage and degenerative changes and turn back the hands of time, but they do not stop the hands of time. Whether you need follow up therapies will largely be determined by your general health and rate of aging, as well as your response to the initial treatment. Most people require tune-up treatments every two to four years. (New question): Can I do stem cell facial rejuvenation if I also do Botox, fillers or other facial treatments? Yes! If you are using neurotoxins like, such as Botox, or fillers (such as Juvederm or Restylane), you will just want to make sure there is a 2-week period of time between when you receive those injections and when you have your stem cell facial procedure. Dr Killen is also able to do Botox and fillers in certain patients on the day of the stem cell procedure, but this would need to be discussed with her ahead of time. When it comes to other medical facial treatments, such as lasers and radiofrequency therapies, you'll want to discuss the timing with us, but in general you'll be fine to do any procedures within a month of your stem cell facial rejuvenation. (new question): If I have had a hair transplant, can I still do stem cell hair injections? Yes. Absolutely. In fact, many hair transplant physicians are using regenerative products during the hair transplant to help the grafts take better.




What Guarantee do I have that will be satisfied with the results?


None. We are happy to report that our overall patient satisfaction rate is very high. We grow almost entirely by word-of-mouth referrals from satisfied patients. We help more people than we don't help, but we don't help everyone. We have found that the severity of the condition is much less of a predictor of the clinical outcome than is the overall health of the person being treated. If you're unhealthy, it is entirely possible that your stem cells don't function properly. We have observed that we tend to have inferior outcomes in people who are smokers, heavy drinkers, heavy narcotic users, diabetics, have uncontrolled hypertension, sleep apnea, lousy diets, and who have a negative outlook on life.








What recommendations do you make to optimize the outcome of Stem Cell Therapy?


Mostly common sense: wholesome diet, regular exercise, quality sleep, fulfilling interpersonal relationships, avoidance of smoking and heavy alcohol consumption. Dr. Killen also recommends beginning Neo40 nitric oxide supplement at least 2 weeks before the procedure. Other therapies that are known to increase the health and activity of stem cells and production of nitric oxide, such as hyperbaric oxygen therapy and pulsed electrical magnetic field therapy (PEMF) may also be useful. Low level light therapy (red light therapy) can also be useful as an after-treatment therapy to help with bruising and swelling. We also ask our patients to avoid the use of NSAIDS (such as Ibuprofen, Naproxen, or Aspirin) and steroids in the two weeks before the procedure. Limiting use of blood thinning supplements, such as fish oil/omega 3 fatty acids and Gingko Biloba, is also encouraged.
