PRP Injection for Sexual Wellness and Urinary Incontinence in Men and Women is at The Michigan Center for Regenerative Medicine
Natural and innovative procedure is fast, effective and lifechanging for patients
Rochester, MI — As a leading regenerative medicine practice in Michigan, The Michigan Center for Regenerative Medicine is pleased to offer platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections for pelvic floor strengthening, urinary incontinence and erectile dysfunction.
This innovative procedure is just one of many the practice specializes in. And though most of the other procedures focus on pain management, the similarity is that the PRP injections for intimate parts are also in line with the concept that patients’ own stem cells can regenerate precious tissues and muscle.
This minimally invasive procedure addresses various issues for both men and women. In women, it treats urinary incontinence along with a host of sexual wellness concerns, like improving elasticity of the vaginal canal, smoother vaginal skin, stronger orgasms, increased lubrication and more.
For men, PRP injections can also be used to treat urinary incontinence as well as to provide the ability for stronger erections, increased blood flow and sensitivity, and improved resolution of penile curvature among other issues.
The procedure takes about an hour and has little to no downtime. It begins with the patient’s blood draw, which is then spun in a centrifuge, separating the plasma from platelets. The platelets are injected back into the treatment site. Numbing cream is used prior to treatment to keep patients comfortable.
Dr. Thomas Nabity, one of the doctors who leads the practice, says this procedure is effective because of the body’s natural ability to heal itself.
“The regeneration of new tissue is not and should not be limited to the back, neck and knees. It is highly efficient in treating sexual wellness, and many of our patients have seen these benefits firsthand,” he said.
Heading up this state-of-the-art procedure is Registered Nurse Tina Pawlich, who has been with the practice for over three years and brings with her a wealth of skill, education and experience. Having worked as a Registered Nurse in obstetrics and gynecology as well as in labor and delivery and as a health educator, Tina is excited to be spearheading the PRP injection procedure at The Michigan Center for Regenerative Medicine.
“As a woman and a nurse who has worked in labor and delivery for years, I have seen the struggles women go through after delivering a baby vaginally. And I am pleased to help them with these issues that once went untreated,” she said. “Further, it is equally important to note that men can also benefit tremendously from this procedure, as many experience unique sexual dysfunction issues of their own that can be both frustrating and embarrassing. I believe in this procedure wholeheartedly because it works and it can change a patient’s life,” she said.
As with any procedure of this nature, a certain level of empathetic bedside manner is necessary, noted Dr. John Santa Ana, who leads the practice alongside Dr. Nabity.
“With any of our procedures, but particularly with one as intimate as this, a certain level of compassion is necessary to help patients feel at ease,” he said. “And Tina’s demeanor and genuine care for patients is the perfect fit.”
For women, the PRP injections can be coupled with the EMSELLA treatment, a noninvasive device that uses an electromagnetic field to stimulate pelvic muscles and strengthen the pelvic floor.
