What Is the O-Shot®?
The O-Shot® procedure uses growth factors to rejuvenate the vagina for help with urinary stress incontinence and sexual dysfunction. By utilizing platelet-rich plasma, the O-Shot® can improve urinary stress incontinence and sexual dysfunction with the use of the body’s very own cellular repair mechanism. As a result, the procedure is safe, minimally invasive and requires little to no downtime.
How Is Platelet-Rich Plasma Used?
During the O-Shot® procedure, growth factors derived from platelets in the patient’s own plasma are safely harvested and re-injected into various anatomic sites. This allows for the growth of new tissue. This practice is already frequently used in the orthopedic field to improve joint, ligament and tendon function, and now, it is being utilized to improve the lives of patients with urinary stress incontinence or sexual dysfunction.
