What is a penile implant?

A penile implant, also called a penile prosthesis, is a medical device which is surgically implanted into the erection chambers of the penis in case of severe ED.

 

What does it treat?


A penile prosthesis is used to treat men with erectile dysfunction (inability to get an erection).  Most of these men have tried oral medication prior to placement of a penile prosthesis.  In addition, penile prosthesis can be a part of the treatment of Peyronie’s disease.  These products do not add length to the penis.  Most patients are very happy with the penis prosthesis after learning how to use it.

Inflatable penile prosthesis:

 

An inflatable penile prosthesis allows fluid to be taken from a storage site and to fill cylinders within the penis.  A pump is placed in the scrotum next to the testicle so that the patient can inflate this when desired. This prosthesis most closely mimics the normal erection.

Reasons to Consider a Penile Implant
Patient Satisfaction Rates: Patients report a 98% satisfaction rate for inflatable penile implants.
Additional Patient Satisfaction Rates: Patients treated with a penile implant appear to be significantly more satisfied with their treatment option than those treated with ED medication or other treatment options.
A Discrete Treatment for ED: A penile prosthesis is not noticeable when your penis is flaccid. Your partner won’t be able to tell you’ve had an implant to treat your ED unless you tell them.
Minimal Recovery Time: Every man is different, but a typical recovery time after a prosthesis implant procedure is four to six weeks. After you’ve fully recovered, you can begin enjoying sex once more.
Cost-effective: Penile implants have been shown to be the most cost-effective ED treatment over a 10-year period.
Insurance Coverage: Penile implants are prescribed by a physician and are generally covered by most insurance plans, including Medicare.

Types of penile implants
There are two main types

of penile implants:

Inflatable implants

 

Inflatable devices, the most common type of penile implant used, can be inflated to create an erection and deflated at other times. Three-piece inflatable implants use a fluid-filled reservoir implanted under the abdominal wall, a pump and a release valve placed inside the scrotum, and two inflatable cylinders inside the penis.

To achieve an erection, you pump the fluid from the reservoir into the cylinders. Afterward, you release the valve inside the scrotum to drain the fluid back into the reservoir. The two-piece model works in a similar way, but the fluid reservoir is part of the pump implanted in the scrotum.

Semirigid rods

 

Semirigid devices are always firm. The penis can be bent away from the body for sexual activity and toward the body for concealment.

A positionable penile implant is a semirigid device with a central series of segments held together with a spring on each end. It can maintain upward and downward positions better than other semirigid rods can.
