PRP For Incontinence

During the procedure for getting the PRP, Blood will be drawn from the arm, much like a normal blood draw with the use of a centrifuge and patented extraction method, Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is then isolated so the regrowth and stimulating cells and nutrients are gathered in a concentrated form.

Using a very thin needle, these growth and healing factors are then injected into very specific areas of the penis. This sounds a bit terrifying at first but there really is nothing to it. Because this area has been numbed with the anesthetic cream.

Medications:

Anticholinergics: These medications can
calm an overactive bladder and may be
helpful for urge incontinence. Examples,
oxybutynin (Ditropan XL), tolterodine
(Detrol).

Alpha blockers: In men with urge or overflow
incontinence, these medications relax bladder
neck muscles and muscle fibers in the
prostate and make it easier to empty the
bladder. Examples include tamsulosin
(Flomax),

Topical estrogen: For women, vaginal cream,
ring or patch may help tone and rejuvenate
tissues in the urethra and vaginal areas.
Systemic estrogen — taking pill — isn’t and
may even make it worse.
