I think penile implant surgery might be a good choice for me. What should I do?
Step one is getting a referral to a reputable urologist. If you haven’t tried the first line treatments like Viagra or injectable erectile dysfunction therapy, your urologist will likely recommend trying those first, unless they’re contraindicated for you. If you and your doctor conclude that implant surgery is a good choice for you, the next step is to get a recommendation for a highly experienced, board certified surgeon. Many surgeons today work at outpatient surgical centers, which expose patients to lower risk of hospital-borne infection than if the surgery were performed on an inpatient basis. Ensure the surgeon, facility, and nursing staff are all top notch, and you’re likely to have the most satisfactory outcome.
Penile implant surgery may sound like an extreme solution to erectile dysfunction, and it is. But it has also given many men their sex lives back and vastly improved quality of life when other solutions for erectile dysfunction haven’t worked. However long you have experienced erection problems, the first step to solving them is a medical consultation so you can thoroughly understand your options and make the most informed decision. Ask questions, and be completely honest with your physician, and you have the best prognosis for treating your erection problems and enjoying better life quality.
