WORKSHOPS

COURSES:

Our one day hands-on (with Florida license) courses will give you the knowledge and techniques you need to perform the procedures you want to offer to your patients. The training includes live demonstration and hands-on participation. After completion of the training, you will be Casanova Clinic certified to perform what you learned and you will have all forms, consents, pre and post care sheets as well as marketing help to start marketing to your patients your new state of the art procedure.

Our one day hands-on workshops will involve no more than 5 practitioners per course in order to maximize the educational teaching and understanding of the procedures.

Your clinic information will appear on our website under our “Find A Clinic” map for potential patients interested in the procedures in your area.

TARGET AUDIENCE:

Our workshops are designed to meet the educational needs of clinicians: Physicians, Nurse Practitioners and Physician Assistants.

*Limited amount of clinicians per workshop

COURSE OBJECTIVES:

At the completion of the program, the participant will be able to understand clinical indications and protocols of PRP injections and successfully administrate it.

COURSE OVERVIEW:

CASANOVA PROCEDURE

Casanova Procedure is the name given to an in-office male sexual enhancement procedure using primarily PRP. The aging male suffers from diminished sexual frequency, difficulty with attaining and sustaining erections and either inadequate orgasms or no orgasms at all. The underlying cause of all of this is atherosclerosis combined with inadequate growth factors and hormones. The Casanova procedure addresses the growth factors only. The three areas focused on are the suprapubic fat pad, the girth of the shaft of the penis and the corona. Live demonstrations will cover all of the above and if you have a Florida license and your own model you can have your own hands on experience.

CLEOPATRA PROCEDURE

As many as 30% of all women suffer from either Hypoactive Sexual Desire, Hypoactive Sexual Arousal and Anorgasmia. In addition, many women suffer from urethral incontinence secondary to either child birth, surgery, advancing age or just plain coughing or sneezing. Cystoceles and or Rectoceles can be treated with either surgery or pessaries, but for the lesser cases the non-invasive Cleopatra may have some dramatic results on all of the above.

The Cleopatra procedure involves injections into the Peri-urethral glands which ameliorates many incontinences, the Clitoris, the “G” spot and the elusive “C” spot. More and more women are presenting themselves to my office and frankly asking me what can be done for them to enhance their sexual response. While we do examine their hormones the Casanova procedure, using PRP and lipid dissolving solutions can greatly enhance their Female Sexual Response

FACE

Facial aging can simplistically be divided into two categories. That witch is caused by the sun and that witch is caused by bone loss.  The latter is caused by diet, age, lifestyle and genetics. The former is caused by the sun, usually before the age of 18. From that point on it takes about 20-30 years for that damage to mature. During this interval time the skin loses its elasticity, the collagen breaks down, the tonofilaments and elastin fibers begin to deteriorate. With rare exceptions (Retin-A) creams affect the epidermis but not the sub-dermis where all of the damage is occurring. PRP with is variety of Growth Factors (Epidermal Growth Factor, Platelet derived Growth Factor, Mesenchymal Growth Factor, Endodermal Growth Factor, Nerve Growth Factor etc.) is ideal to correct much of the damage brought on by the sun and aging. This particular use and application of PRP requires a thorough understanding of the various techniques used in order to get the desired results.

HAIR

Hair loss can be devastating for both men and women. There are many types of hair loss and PRP is effective in the Male pattern hair loss and the Global hair loss seen so frequently in elderly women. The procedure is a two- part process. Firstly, the PRP is injected into the appropriate hair loss pattern and then the patient is given a prescription for maintenance. Our experience has shown us that it takes about three sessions, 3 consecutive months to get a full and long term response. In the recovery process the patient should not necessarily be taking Testosterone but that is not always possible and the effect is still quite dramatic. While there are many new and exciting new surgical procedures, none come close the cost effectiveness of PRP. 

JOINTS

Every Doctor loves to do a procedure where the patient goes “WOW”! Such has been my experience injecting joints with PRP. The most common joints that I tend to inject are the knees, shoulders, First Meta-Carpal Phalangeal joint and hips.

Once again I have found that two injections spaced about a month apart gives a great long term result. The injection into a joint is the same technique we have all been using most of our careers except for the volumes. This technique is so powerful that I now have a small series of patients who have put off their scheduled knee surgeries until the PRP stops working. There are some controversies regarding additives to the PRP solution and I will cover these at the workshop.

FAT DISSOLVING – MESOTHERAPY

Lipodissolve is the trade name given to Phosphatidyl Choline. It is a phospholipid that makes up part of the cell membrane. In many parts of Europe where it has been used routinely for the past 40 years it comes under the general term Mesotherapy. I personally have been using it for over 20 years. Its mechanism of action is that it causes a “Zwitter-ionic” defect in the adipocyte cell membrane. We inject into both the male and female suprapubic fat pads. These fat pads grow after forty years of age and in the male may occlude about an inch to an inch and a half of the shaft of the penis. So while we do not make the penis any longer we do expose its full potential. In the female the supra pubic fat pad enlarges after forty and descends inferiorly. This changes the angle of intromission and by dissolving it re-approximates a more superior and younger angle.
