Penile Implant Surgery is a procedure that helps men with erectile dysfunction by placing a prosthetic device inside the penis and scrotum. This procedure is considered when all the other available treatment options are ineffective and could not resolve the condition. This procedure helps the man achieve an erection and regain sexual function.
There are two types of penile implants, inflatable, and semi-rigid. The type that is used will depend on the needs and preferences of the man. Several factors like age, penis size, previous health history, and overall health are considered before deciding which type of implant is suitable. The simplest kind of prosthesis comprises a pair of bendable rods that are surgically inserted within the erection chambers of the penis. Penile implants can also be used to treat severe cases of a condition that causes scarring inside the penis, leading to curved, painful erections. In most cases, doctors try simpler and less invasive treatments first. If these treatments are not successful, men with ED may consider penile implant surgery.

Benefits of penile implant surgery:
Penile implants can help men to get an erection but can't increase sexual desire or sensation. The implants used must be smaller than the size of the actual penis. They even cannot help to increase the size of the penis.Authored By Dr. N. Anandan
