Many men have erectile dysfunction that requires treatment. Many men will progress through medication, vacuum devices, and penile injections as their erectile dysfunction becomes more severe. When these options fail men are then faced with the decision of when and if to choose the surgical option of a penile implant.
A penile implant is a permanent solution for a man suffering with erectile dysfunction and offers an erection whenever and wherever desired. It is a great solution for men who have exhausted other options who still want to be sexually active. Penile implants are safe, reliable and have a very high satisfaction among those men who choose the procedure.
A semi-rigid penile prosthesis works well for men who want an easy solution for the implant. As seen in this video the device simply moves into position when ready for use. This device works well for men with limited hand dexterity as well. Some men find this device difficult to hide when not sexually active because it is always semi-firm. simplest penile implant is the semi-rigid rods. A semi-rigid prosthesis consists of a pair of bendable rods placed in the penis that can be manipulated into postion when sex is desired.
A 3 piece penile prosthesis is considered the "gold standard" when discussing penile prostheses. The device will get firm when inflated from a reservoir of fluid using a pump hidden in the scrotum. The device can be "deflated" using the deflate button on the pump that allows for the fluid to be transferred back into the reservoir. tburology, our team of skilled urologists provides comprehensive care for a range of urological conditions.

Men who have tried and failed other treatment options should be considering a penile implant. Please do not consider an implant a replacement for a normal erection, and certainly do not consider an implant if other options are currently working and are satisfactory for you and your partner.
Men should be healthy enough to consider a surgery and should have partners who are also motivated to continue or resume sexual activity once the implant is placed. The happiest patients are those who have discussed it fully with their partners.
Most men will need to make the decision of a semirigid rod vs an inflatable device. both types of implants work very well and one is not better than another. The three piece device is the type used most often and men choosing this device are able to have a rigid erection when fully inflated and a flaccid penis when the device is deflated. The semi-rigid device is most often used when men have limited manual dexterity, but even men with good hands elect the semi-rigid device for its simplicity and longevity.
