A penile implant is a prosthesis that your urologist places during an in-office procedure. Penile implants are an effective solution for men who struggle with erectile dysfunction. For many men, a penile implant can offer a new lease on life after prostate cancer, Peyronie’s disease, or other conditions that cause erectile dysfunction.

There are two types of implants: semi-rigid penile implants and inflatable penile implants.

  • A semi-rigid penile implant includes two flexible rods. To have intercourse, you bend the rods and bring the penis to an erect position. When you are done, you return the rods to their downward position
  • An inflatable penile implant, like the AMS 700 Penile Implant, may be the best treatment option for men with ED. A penile implant is a device that is implanted into the penis, usually on an outpatient basis. The implant is entirely concealed within the body, so no one can see it and is controlled by the user to achieve an erection. This treatment is designed to allow for spontaneity and the erection is maintained for as long as desired

You and your physician will discuss your options and determine what is best for you.
