Ok so I got the pirapus shot on 2/11/14. Dr Varano and staff were very professional about performing this procedure. Basically it takes about an hour for the procedure. The Dr. takes 60

*cc*’s of your blood and inserts it into the Magellan centrifuge. In about 20 min 10 cc’s of

*PRP* is ready to be injected in 5-6 locations. Your using a numbing cream and there was only minor discomfort and just a little bruising. You must then use a vacuum pump that you bring with you for 10 minuets at 10 in HG, in order to more evenly distribute the PRP. It is claimed that you will see maximum results with in six weeks, all the while using the vacuum pump twice a day for 10 min and at 10 in HG. Dr Varano feels that this procedure works better for those who have right or left curvature because he can only inject on the sides and the glans. My curvature is upwards and between 30-40 degrees, and I feel optimistic that this will reduce my curvature. There is a significant increase in

*girth* after 24 hours, and after pumping this morning a significant reduction in curvature. Pumping is one thing; the morning wood will really be the test to see if there is a reduction in peyronies. The science of PRP and its ability to help heal injuries is gaining recognition in the medical world, so the theory that it can help those with peryronies is a sound one. One other thing, Dr Runels the inventor of the pirapus shot, is asking the Dr’s who perform this procedure to have patients fill out an

*erectile dysfunction* questionnaire before the shot and 6 weeks later. I’m guessing, and it is only a guess, that if Dr. Runels can show clinical data that it improves

*ED*, there may be some insurance reimbursement of the $2000 cost. He is expected to present the data later this year. Also this is a new procedure and the cost of the centrifuge is high. As time goes by and more Dr’s start doing this procedure the cost will come down. Already there are Dr’s in 23 states and in just the three months that I started looking into this, there are now two in NJ. where there were none.
