The P-SHOT (the Priapus shot) For Sexual Health: 5 Key Benefits You Should Know

(Scheduling Consultations December 2023)

The newest breakthrough in men’s sexual health is here. The Burick Center is excited to tell you about the amazing benefits of the Priapus shot for erectile dysfunction. We would like to share the benefits and advantages of this non-surgical, quick, and virtually pain free procedure.  Many people have heard about this groundbreaking treatment and demand is on the rise.

Dr. Adam Burick, D.O., F.A.C.S. is a certified, licensed provider of the Priapus shot procedure.  Trained by world-renowned Dr. Charles Runels, the inventor of the patented and trademarked P-shot protocol.

What Is the Priapus Shot for Erectile Dysfunction?

The Priapus shot is an FDA-approved treatment for erectile dysfunction (ED). Erectile dysfunction affects millions of men in the United States. The percentage of men who have experienced ED tends to be directly correlated with their age. Around 30% of men in their 30s have it, 40% in their 40s, and so on.

The Priapus shot utilizes a miraculous substance known as platelet-rich plasma (PRP). When PRP is injected into any part of your body, it causes your body to construct new, fresh cells, increase blood flow while generating new blood vessels.

How Does the Priapus Shot work?

The PRP treatment used specifically for men’s erectile dysfunction – or the P-Shot – involves separating out the growth factors in your own blood, and then re-injecting your super-charged plasma back into your body.  The PRP mobilizes local stem cells and growth factors, which accelerate collagen formation, tissue regeneration, and the formation of new vascular networks.  This results in increased blood flow to the penis and stronger, more reliable, and more frequent erections.

What Is PRP?

Platelet-rich plasma is a concentration of two of the main components found in blood: platelets and plasma. Red blood cells and white blood cells are filtered out when PRP is produced.

One of the major advantages of PRP treatment is that it uses material derived from your own body. You do not need to find a donor or worry about possible compatibility issues. The PRP that we use comes directly from you immediately before the treatment.

How Is PRP Made?

If you have ever donated plasma or platelets, then you have seen most of this process. To make PRP, we will connect a tube to a vein in your arm. Step one, we draw your blood. Step 2, your blood is placed in an FDA-approved centrifuge and spun. When spun, this separates the blood components and we now have new PRP. The centrifuge then siphons off only the material that we want.

PRP and Erectile Dysfunction

PRP can help rebuild the corpora cavernosa and corpus spongiosum, which are the penile tissues that fill with blood to achieve erection. Aging reduces their ability to hold blood. PRP can undo that damage and make them work like new.

The 5 Amazing Benefits of the Priapus Shot for Erectile Dysfunction

The benefits mentioned here come from reports from actual patients. Although most patients respond well to this treatment, it’s important to remember that your experience may vary.

You may experience all of these benefits to varying degrees. Some people have a stronger response than others.

  1. Longer Lasting Erections

One of the greatest benefits for men with is a longer lasting erection. PRP injections may reduce the chances of premature ejaculation. The refractory period time is also reduced.

  1. Harder Erections

If your erection is not strong enough to achieve penetration, you have a clear case of ED. Even when able to penetrate, many ED patients find that their erection does not satisfy their partner.

PRP can help that. The hardness of an erection is determined by the volume of blood the penis is able to contain. With the corpora cavernosa and corpus spongiosum restored to full strength, you will be able to hold more blood than before. That increases the hardness of your erection significantly. You might even notice this the very next day, and the benefits do not stop there.

  1. Your Penis May Gain Size

The number of scams and spam emails sent on this subject is no secret to any man. From pills to creams to strange machines, many promises have been made. Few of them have been kept.

That changes with the Priapus shot. It is common to combine PRP treatment with a penis pump to produce the best results. Using the pump forces the injected PRP to reach other areas, and it helps to stretch out the cells to let the PRP in.

When used properly in conjunction with PRP, the pump delivers long-term gains to penis size. Some men report up to an inch increase in both length and girth. A patient can see results as soon as three weeks. They tend to only be visible when the penis is erect.

  1. Zero Risk of Damage

One of the biggest benefits of PRP treatment is that it involves no risk of damage to your body. As we mentioned, the PRP comes from your own body, which makes it perfectly safe. The shot is non-invasive, making it safe for anyone to try. Surgical solutions to ED can be quite risky. For example, vascular reconstructive surgery is similar to a heart bypass. New arteries are routed to the penis to improve blood flow.

Other techniques exist that use implants that can contribute to your erection. While these techniques work, they are far more complicated and much more expensive. Surgical techniques require additional anesthesia, which has its own set of risks. Recovery time is much longer. PRP, in comparison, is an outpatient treatment that takes less than an hour.

  1. No Loss of Sensation

The P-Shot, unlike other modalities and treatments, does not alter sensation.


  • Is the procedure painful?

Because we use a numbing cream containing an anesthetic, we have never had patients complain of any pain during or following the procedure.

  • Will there be any scarring?

Scarring is very rare and unlikely to occur.

  • How often does the P-Shot work?

75% of men report satisfactory benefits.

  • When can I expect to see results?

Some men experience results immediately. Most patients will see results within the first 3 weeks that are cumulative over the next 12 weeks and can last for up to one year.

  • Am I a good candidate?

Anyone looking for increased sexual performance can benefit from this procedure. It is especially advantageous for men who struggle with erectile dysfunction resulting from prostate issues, Peyronie’s Disease, the side effects of prescription drugs or other medical conditions including diabetes, or if Cialis, Viagra, are no longer as efficacious as before.
