Penile implants are medical devices placed inside the penis to allow men with erectile dysfunction (ED) to get an erection. They are typically considered when other treatments for ED are not effective. Our clinic offers both the utmost technical proficiency and a thoughtful patient care philosophy to ensure the best outcomes for our patients.

There are primarily two types of penile implants that we offer at our clinic, each catering to various patient needs:

  • Inflatable implants - This most common type of implant consists of a pump placed in the scrotum and cylinders in the penis. When pumped, the cylinders fill with fluid kept in a reservoir in the abdomen, leading to an erection.
  • Semi-rigid rods - These implants involve bendable rods that are manually adjusted for an erection and are simpler than their inflatable counterparts.

We ensure that every surgical process adheres to the highest standards of safety and excellence. The procedure involves the implantation of the device through an incision in the penis or abdomen.

Discretion and privacy are of the utmost importance to us, and we are dedicated to providing a comfortable environment for all our patients.

Recovery is an essential part of the penile implant process. Generally, it involves a short hospital stay followed by four to six weeks of healing at home. We provide comprehensive aftercare instructions and follow-up appointments to monitor your progress.

During this period, it's crucial to follow our instructions and avoid straining the area to prevent complications.
