About Stem Cell Shots
Stem cells have garnered a variety of uses in modern medicine. Originally developed to assist with post-surgical recovery, stem cells derived from one's own tissues work to regenerate and repair surrounding cells. At Atlanta Cosmetic Urology, board-certified urologist Dr. Tariq Hakky utilizes this innovative method to address the concerns and causes of erectile dysfunction. Taken from adipose tissue (ADSC) or bone marrow from the hip, these stem cells are separated in a centrifuge and injected into penile erectile tissue. Once injected, they encourage the repair and replacement of nearby cells over time. The use of adipose-derived stem cells in the treatment of erectile disorders has shown to be effective, which is why Dr. Hakky is proud to offer this service at his Atlanta, GA urology office for those struggling to combat their ED.

"Dr. Hakky is such a great doctor. We first found him at a Urology practice in Snellville and were SOOOO happy to hear he was opening his own practice. My husband had an abnormal semen analysis and has Low T, so treatments were typically go to fertility specialist for IVF or IUI. Dr. Hakky introduced us to a newer way to treat both and we are now pregnant with our 2nd child and my husband feels great hormone wise. I am a nurse at a OBGYN practice and we now send all of our abnormal semen analysis patients to him. He has a great personality and knows his stuff. Highly recommend!!"- L.J. / Google / Dec 04, 2019
ED can be caused by a variety of contributing factors, both physical and psychological. Some of the most notable are:
- Low self-esteem
- High blood pressure
- Heart disease
- Peyronie's disease
Most men who suffer from erectile dysfunction are candidates to receive this service. However, to fully assess your eligibility, Dr. Hakky will go over your medical history and any medications you are taking. In order to get the most out of your treatment, he will work to determine the underlying cause of your erectile dysfunction. This may lead him to pair your stem cell shots with other surgical or nonsurgical solutions, crafting a personalized treatment program designed to meet your unique needs and goals.
Your stem cell shot treatment will begin with an extraction of adipose tissue from which your injection will be created. First, Dr. Hakky will see you in a private consultation room and ensure that you are comfortable. When you are ready, he will apply a local anesthetic to the area where fat will be taken. These fat cells will be filtered in a centrifuge by a process that will isolate the stem cells. When your autograft injectable has been crafted, Dr. Hakky will carefully inject the substance into the erectile tissue with a fine microneedle. The injection process itself only takes fifteen minutes to complete, and this service is performed in office at our Atlanta, GA urology practice. Following your treatment, Dr. Hakky will talk with you, telling you what to expect. From there, you will schedule your follow-up appointment.
What to Expect
Following your stem cell injection treatment, you should be well enough to continue on with your daily activities. The estimated recovery time typically lasts around 2 – 4 weeks, and Dr. Hakky will want you to come in for a follow-up appointment in 2 weeks to ensure that you are healing well. He will also give you after-care instructions and let you know if you should avoid any activities for a set amount of time. Depending on the severity of your erectile dysfunction, you may require additional stem cell shot treatments over a period of time. You could also benefit from coming in every so often to maintain your results and performance. Because the stem cells will repair and regenerate damaged cells over a period of time, it will likely be several weeks before you are able to see the full extent of your results.
Your erectile dysfunction solution isn't only limited to stem cell shots – currently, there is a large pool of procedures available designed for the specific purpose of treating or correcting ED. If you are seeking a different solution to reach your end goals, Dr. Hakky also offers the ever-popular Priapus shot (also called the P-Shot). Named for the Greek god, Priapus, the P-Shot is a minimally invasive nonsurgical injection crafted from platelet-rich plasma derived from your own blood. This method, called PRP therapy, involves taking the patient's blood, which is then placed in a centrifuge, allowing the platelet-rich plasma to be isolated. From there, your injectable is crafted and injected into the selected areas of the penile tissue.
Because the substance is created using the patient's blood, there is often very little risk for any infection or adverse effect. This service has been shown to aid in increasing the size, girth, and function of the penis, as well as aiding in the treatment of ED. This PRP solution is only one of the many additional services Dr. Hakky offers at his urology practice. We invite you to contact Atlanta Cosmetic Urology to learn about other procedures, like the P-Shot.
