Men want something beyond a pill to help them increase their libido. The P-shot is it.By Jon Black
Dr. Roberto Miranda could practice medicine anywhere. The family practitioner, and former surgeon and ER doctor, is a native of Brazil who studied medicine in Germany and conducted his surgical training the United States. A polyglot, Dr. Miranda speaks English, Spanish, Portuguese, French, German, and Italian. Austin’s vibrant community and opportunities for medical practitioners inspired him to make this city his home.
His practice, Miranda MedCenter, provides a full range of family medicine services. It also offers a variety of aesthetic and therapeutic treatments that reveal one of his passions: tapping and enhancing the body’s natural powers to heal and rejuvenate.
Dr. Miranda’s practice puts him at the forefront of one of the hottest topics in men’s health. Recent years have seen a growing awareness that the decline or loss of libido as a result of aging or other conditions is not a trivial issue but, rather, something with a genuine impact on health and wellness.
“Many men lose their sexual performance due to age or medical conditions such as enlarged prostate, prostate cancer, diabetes or the aftereffects of drugs or surgery,” Dr. Miranda explains.
Fortunately, there is a quick, effective, and enduring treatment for the phenomenon: the Priapus Shot, or P-Shot. “This is one of the procedures I’m most excited about in men’s health,” he says. “Men want something beyond a pill to help them increase their libido. The P-shot is it.”
The P-Shot works by drawing blood from a patient, from which growth factors are extracted and concentrated into Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP). The PRP is then injected into the patient. “Because the P-Shot uses the patient’s own blood,” Dr. Miranda explains, “there are no issues with allergies or other harmful side effects.”
There is an equivalent procedure for women. The Orgasm Short, or O-Shot, uses a similar procedure refining the patient’s blood into PRP to rejuvenate the vagina. Dr. Miranda says that, in addition to helping women experience better and healthier sex, it can also relieve the symptoms of urinary incontinence.
His practice also provides PRP treatment for injuries to the knees, shoulders, and other joints. They also administer the HCG weight loss program. HCG, which stands for Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, is a hormone made by the body during pregnancy. In conjunction with controlled caloric intake, Dr. Miranda has seen mutli-week HCG treatments produce impressive weight loss results in patients – he points out that appropriate lifestyle choices are essential for maintaining such results.
The Vampire Facelift is another procedure Dr. Miranda offers which utilizes the body’s natural healing powers. It combines traditional hyaluronic acid techniques to shape the face as a filler with PRP. They can be injected under the skin, separately or together, creating a younger appearance by reducing wrinkles. According to Dr. Miranda, the Vampire Facelift differs from traditional procedures in two ways. First, in addition to restoring shape it improves tone and texture. Second, because it utilizes naturally produced growth factors, it actually rejuvenates: creating tissue that not only looks younger but also behaves younger.
The Vampire technique is also available as a facial treatment in which the PRP mixture is applied topically to the skin. Dr. Miranda also utilizes the Vampire technique to combat hair loss. Injecting PRP into the scalp stimulates and rejuvenates follicles which can lead to hair regrowth. All Vampire treatments are available for men and women.
Dr. Miranda’s office also administers Kybella injections, offering a non-surgical treatment for double chins. Kybella uses a chemical called deoxycholic acid which absorbs fat cells locally around the injection site.
Upon arrival in Austin, Dr. Miranda established a surgical practice, which he maintained until 1997. He then worked as an emergency room physician until establishing his current practice in 2001.
Beyond his practice, Dr. Miranda is actively involved in the community. Two decades ago, he and a group of friends spearheaded the establishment of the Sembradores de Amistad Club. This group raised money for endowments at higher education institutions in Austin to provide scholarships for minorities who would be the first in their family to attend college. Because of the growing demands of his practice, Dr. Miranda eventually had to fold the Sembradores de Amistad, but he is proud to note their good work continues, “Our endowments will grow forever.”
Dr. Miranda is certified by the American Board of Surgery and is a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons. He started medical school in Frankfurt, Germany and completed his MD at the University of Sao Paulo in Brazil. He received his surgical training at the University of Florida in Gainesville.
Miranda thrives on positive feedback from his patents, “I enjoy when a patient comes back so happy with their results.” He is especially grateful that many of his patients are so pleased with their experience that refer him to friends and coworkers. “When a new patient comes in and tells me another patient has referred them because I am such a good doctor, that really makes my day,” he says.
