Penile Prosthesis   arrow

If phosphodiesterase-5 inhibitors (PDE5i) and injection therapy (prostaglandin-based mixtures) are not successful in improving erectile function, then penile prosthesis may be the appropriate option for some men.  The two major manufacturers of penile prostheses (either inflatable or semi-rigid) include American Medical Systems (Endo Pharmaceuticals) and Coloplast and decisions to use one company versus the other are largely based on physician or patient presence since both devices are associated with excellent outcomes.

The American Medical Systems patient resource site and the Coloplast patient resource and Straight Talk sites are useful to review before considering such a procedure.

For additional information about the initial evaluation of erectile dysfunction, please visit the Center for Male Health and Reproduction site.  You may also contact us with any additional questions and our physician team will respond.
