The One Question ThatWill Line People Up for the Priapus Shot®
Hunter Hansen: Yes, it does. Charles Runels: Okay. Because this is the thing: I may be the guy that's talked about P-Shot® for a long time, but you're doing a lot of them. And, because of that, you've learned some things that we don't know, and so that's why we're very grateful for you sharing. So, the first thing was the internal. The other thing ... you said a few things, and then you said, "In conclusion, this is how we get so many people." And so, what I think you said is you had some questionnaire of some kind? Hunter Hansen: Yeah. It's really just the one question about what you just said: Are you — well, I'll back up. That question is on the bottom of a page full of questions about symptoms that may suggest low testosterone, and so, at the very bottom, after they've said, "Well, yes, my libido is off," or "I'm tired all the time," or all these other symptoms that they could check on, then at the bottom I say, "Are you interested in getting a bigger penis?" And then everybody laughs at that, sure. Charles Runels: Got you. Okay. Beautiful. Hunter Hansen: You asked about criteria. A couple of things that I could think of … One is that I don't want to do the procedure on someone who takes Hunter Hansen: — we need the inflammatory response of the P-Shot®, and if you're already taking Motrin every day, then it's just not going to work well. Other than that, I don't have a lot of restrictions. They're kind of relative. If someone has an open sore on the penis, I'm not gonna treat it, but I'll wait till it heals. And then I'll treat it. People who are diabetic or smokers have much [poorer] circulation, but I'll still treat those people. But I'll give them a warning saying that they may not respond as well as others. The big thing is, that question on my entry form then allows me to discuss what the P-Shot® is and what it's for. Now, of course, a lot of our patients don't believe that there was anything that they could do for their penis, and so I explain that this is used a lot in orthopedics and it helps regrow tendons and ligaments, and so I have the ability to use the same type of product in the penis to help the penis grow new blood vessels, more nerves, more skin. Then I explain that most of our patients get a half-inch to an inch longer two months after the procedure, but some people do not get longer, they get a bigger diameter of the penis, and I stress that I have no control over which way that occurs, but people do get a change. chronic NSAIDs because — Charles Runels: Got it. Yeah.
We have very few failures on this, and I think the failures are more attributable to people who are not pumping correctly rather than the procedure itself. One thing I would say is that if you're going to do this procedure, you don't want to be expecting to do any other major surgery soon, because then you're not going to pump. Recently, I had a man that was going to be evaluated in a week for a cardiac cath, and I'm going, "Well, let's get that settled first," because if he's laid up or if he's taking medicines that are going to be in the way of our procedure, then he won't be as satisfied. One of the first patients that I treated four years ago was a businessman [who] had our procedure done and then went to Europe for two weeks. Well, he didn't bring his pump with, so he didn't do well. If you're not going to be able to use a pump, then I want to wait until that becomes more convenient, because I think that's extremely important. You and I differ on how much we pump. I'm telling ... Again, I've had people who have injured their penis with trying to pump too much or try[ing] to get too firm an erection. People have torn the foreskin, and they've caused trauma to the testicles, and there's all kinds of crazy stuff. So, what I tell patients now is [that] I want them to pump enough so the penis gets bigger, not so it causes any pain, and I explain that the idea is not to get a full erection; the idea is to exercise the penis by putting blood into the penis twice a day. I'm trying to [emphasize] that, as this is something like a normal exercise program, where you've got to do a little bit all the time to make it work. I try to stress that they should pump for the next two months after the procedure and then after that, I say that they can pump as needed, but I don't mind that they do it for the rest of their lives. Charles Runels: Yeah, so can I jump in before you get further? I want to make sure that I've showed some people some research that's demonstrating what you're talking about. Let's see if I can make this show up, here. Yeah. Okay, so here's a study that looked at oxygen saturation before and after penile vacuum therapy. They use a transcutaneous oxygen device, exactly like we used to use in the wound care center in the hospital where we did hyperbaric, and it would help the surgeon decide where to cut when he had to do an amputation on someone with Type 2 diabetes. Many of you are familiar with that device, so they just had people pump and then they … and it was a very short application, like you said. It wasn't vigorous, but then they just measured, and they just showed that it caused better oxygen saturation.
*** The following is taken from an interview with Dr. Hunter Hansen. For a complete transcript, log in to the membership site for the Priapus Shot® procedure and find the Journal Club dated September 5, 2018. Hunter Hansen: All the patients that I treat with a P-Shot® are internal. They're all patients that have come to me for other reasons, and we simply ask them on their input questionnaire if they're satisfied with their penis or its function or its size or whatever. And, of course, men would laugh at me and say, "Well, of course, I want it more. Of course, why wouldn't I?" So, that's how we acquire so many patients for the procedure. Charles Runels: Before you get too far ahead of me, I'm trying to remember questions, but you've already laid down so much good stuff. I wanted to catch up before you get too far ahead. So, first of all, this idea that most of your patients come from inside your practice — I want to make sure that everyone understands that it's true for all of us. Even though our clinic ... our websites get lots of traffic, and we all get patients from outside our practice, just like with the Botox practice, no one ever built their practice from people clicking on Botox.com and then finding them. We all get patients that way, but what really happens is people that already know us or that we bring in through other marketing means ... when they find out about Botox, they go to look to see if we're on the website to see if we're really using Botox or are we not really doing that, we're buying it from China, and we're not even on the website. So, the word "Botox" gives us credibility for something that, I mean, could be used in war if it was stronger, right, because it's a neurotoxin. So, that trademark gives credibility and safety and respectability to using a neurotoxin. So, in the same way, with the P-Shot®, we can advertise PRP and get no one, practically, from outside of our clinic. We advertise with our trademark. We get a few from the regular ... from our membership site, but, mostly it gives credibility, to those that come into our office, that we know what we're doing, and the main website helps convince them that this is a real thing that lots of doctors are doing around the world. Would you add anything to what I just said? Because I'm trying to fill in what you said, but you keep me straight because I'm not in your office. Hunter Hansen: Yeah, yeah. Yeah, sure. Charles Runels: Does that sound right, what I just said?
