Penile Implant

Penile implants, also known as penile prostheses, are medical devices that are surgically implanted into the penis to treat erectile dysfunction (ED). They are typically recommended for men who have not had success with other ED treatments, such as medication or vacuum erection devices.

There are two main types of penile implants: inflatable and non-inflatable. Inflatable implants consist of two inflatable cylinders that are implanted into the penis, as well as a pump and a reservoir that are implanted into the scrotum. When the man wants to have an erection, he pumps the pump to inflate the cylinders with fluid from the reservoir. Non-inflatable implants, also known as semi-rigid implants, consist of two flexible rods that are implanted into the penis. The rods allow the penis to be bent into a semi-rigid state for sexual activity.

Penile implants have a high success rate and are considered a safe and effective treatment for ED. However, like any surgical procedure, there are risks involved, such as infection, bleeding, and device malfunction. It is important to discuss the potential risks and benefits of penile implants with a qualified healthcare provider before deciding if this treatment is right for you.

If you are experiencing ED and have not had success with other treatments, penile implants may be a viable option for restoring sexual function and improving your quality of life. Talk to us and we will bring you to our healthcare provider to learn more about this treatment option.
