Charles Runels, MD

Dr. Runels worked for three years as a physical chemist at Southern Research Institute before completing medical school at the University of Alabama in Birmingham, after which he completed residency and became board-certified in Internal Medicine.

During twelve years as an ER physician, he founded the largest group of ER physicians in his state.

He then began a private medical practice and conducted research in the areas of endocrinology, wellness, cosmetic medicine, & sexual medicine.

He contributed to multiple peer-reviewed scientific publications in the areas of hypertension, hormone replacement, sexual medicine, and immunology.

Based on his research, he authored a number of popular books about sex and chapters in medical texts.

In cosmetic medicine, he designed a specific way of using blood-derived growth factors to rejuvenate the face, commonly called the Vampire Facelift®, and founded the Cellular Medicine Association to help promote further investigation in that area.

His recent work includes research on urinary incontinence and sexual function in both men and women--resulting in his development of the O-Shot® and the P-Shot® (Priapus Shot®) procedures.

His innovative approach to sexual health and cosmetic medicine and his matching intellectual properties made him a sought-after practitioner and lecturer. Over the past 11 years, he trained over 5,000 physicians in over 50 countries in his methods.

He is the father of three sons, grandfather of two grandsons, and lives in Fairhope, AL, with his wife.
