Organ Implants are devices placed inserted inside the organ to allow men with Erectile Dysfunction (ED) to sustain an adequate erection that allows for a satisfactory intercourse.
Organ Implants are devices placed inserted inside the organ to allow men with Erectile Dysfunction (ED) to sustain an adequate erection that allows for satisfactory intercourse.
It is usually used when there is a clear medical cause for ED and when the problem is unlikely to resolve despite the introduction of other medical treatments. Sometimes an organ prosthesis is implanted during surgery to reconstruct the penis when scarring has caused erections to curve (Peyronie’s Disease).
Organ Implants are either malleable (bendable) or inflatable.
The simplest type of prosthesis consists of a pair of malleable rods surgically implanted within the erection chambers of the penis.
With this type of implant, the penis is always in a semi-rigid state and merely needs to be lifted or adjusted into the erect position to initiate intercourse. Nowadays, many men choose hydraulic, inflatable prosthesis, which allows them to have an erection when they choose, and it’s easier to conceal. It also looks more natural.
Organ implant surgeries take about an hour and are typically done in the hospital. The patient typically stays only one day in the hospital before being discharged home.
Your treating Urologist will provide you with specific instructions about when you can resume normal activities.
Most men can resume strenuous physical activity and intercourse activity about six weeks after surgery
