Are you missing out on the "game of life" due to ED?

Erectile dysfunction (ED) is a condition that affects over 30 million U.S. men.* Though ED may not be life-threatening, it's an important health problem that is associated with several other health threats, such as cardiovascular disease, prostate cancer, depression and diabetes.

Any man can get ED. It's not a natural part of aging, and you don’t have to live with its results.

It's time to talk about ED...

Only one in five men with ED discusses this condition with his physician, and it takes these men an average of two years to broach the topic. In order to treat more men, health care providers and hospital systems must do more to inform the community of treatment options and encourage men to seek treatment.

Our ED treatments can restore physical and emotional intimacy and allow men to feel confident, masculine and in control once again.

Proven procedures for ED

Most men are unaware of the treatment options beyond oral medications. Our knowledgeable and experienced physicians are experts in treating ED, even in men who haven’t been previously helped by medication.

We offer a wide range of treatment options, including penile implant surgery.

How does a penile implant work?

An inflatable prosthesis includes two inner-tube-like cylinders that are placed within the two corporal bodies of the penis. Just like with a tire, as the implant inflates, the penis gets rigid. A small pump placed between the testes in the scrotum is used to inflate and deflate the penis. 

What is the penile implant surgery like?

Penile implant surgery is a short (less than one hour), elective operation in which the implant is placed in the penis through a one-and-a-half-inch incision. The surgery requires an overnight hospital stay. Two months after the surgery, the implant should not be visible, even upon close visual inspection.

Are you a candidate for a penile implant? 

If oral medication has not been effective in treating your ED, a penile implant may be the right solution for you. The procedure is routinely covered by insurance, and co-pays are usually under $200.
