Penile implant surgery is used to treat men with erectile dysfunction caused by severe scarring inside the penis. Usually caused by Peyronie’s Disease, the scarring causes the penis to bend or curve painfully while erect. If several treatments have been exhausted, your urologist may suggest a penile implant. The surgery is an effective permanent solution to ED allowing men the ability to enjoy sexual activity without pills or pumps.
There are several factors considered if the surgery is needed, but most doctors reserve the procedure for the most severe cases of ED. If you’re eligible, the operation is relatively quick and recovery is easy. The surgery takes around an hour and a half and can be done in outpatient. Most men spend the night in the hospital in case of infection or other complications.
