Dr. Reed, Suffer from progressive ED the past 3 years and tried other options such as Viagra and a vacuum erection device, and have concluded I will need a penile implant or prosthesis. Can you do a circumcision at the same time.
Yes it is possible but would be a little easier and less risky recovery if your adult circumcision was done first. Please visit our web-site penisdoctior.com//before-after-penile-implantation for photos.l We have done about 2500 penile implants and several revisions. A penile prosthesis should be considered a last resort in the management of erectile impairment, but once that decision is made in a medically qualified patient the acceptance
rate (“I’m glad I did”) runs quite high.
Some of the most enduring friendships I have had with patients and their wives centered around the installation of an inflatable penile prosthesis which simply turned their marriage around and placed it on a mutually fulfilling course.
I would suggest you consider an inflatable penile prosthesis which will provide you with a controllable erection. That is a good flaccid mode (desirable for concealment) and a rigid erection, that lasts as long as you desire.
We hope that when you consider penile prosthesis installation you will remember our 27 years of urological experience and installation of over 1000 implants.
A more innovative version of the standard operation which we started to pioneer back in 1986, is to provide additional length other than what might be expected with standard implant surgery.
If you are over 40 and are on medications other than hormones, please call the office before scheduling surgery, as a letter of medical clearance will most likely be needed.
No aspirin or aspirin products, blood thinners such as Plavix, Coumadin, no anti-inflammatory drugs such as Motrin, Advil, Alleve, or Cox 2 inhibitors such as Celebrex or Vioxx for a week before surgery. No Vitamin E or excessive alcohol or spices for a week before surgery as this may promote bruising. Bruising can be reduced (many believe) withBromelain 500 mg 1 twice a day, Arnica montana dose 30C (take 4 small tablets sublingually, 4 times a day), vitamin C 500 mg (3 times a day) starting 1 week before
If you have any additional questions or concerns, please feel free to write or call. Our office can be very creative regarding financing or pricing, and you’ll
be happy to know most insurance companies including medicare do fund for penile prosthesis surgery.
Either Anne, our amiable office manager, or I would be pleased to help.
