At our South Florida urology center, our urologist Dr. Edward Gheiler performs a variety of penile implant services to treat varying issues and concerns. Our scarless, minimally invasive penile implant restores erectile function for patients.
As a treatment option for erectile dysfunction, this procedure is quick with minimal complications or morbidity. Our urologist in Miami has a 99% patient and partner satisfaction rate. This procedure is performed in an outpatient surgery setting. It is a quick procedure, taking anywhere from 20 to 30 minutes.
After the minimally invasive penile implant surgery is performed, a postoperative visit is required three days later, in addition to a second and last visit six weeks after the initial procedure.
What Is the Recovery Timeline
Recovery for this procedure is fairly quick, with patients feeling slight soreness for up to a week after the procedure. After about six weeks, patients will return for their follow-up visit in which we will assess their readiness to resume normal sexual activity, as well as instruct patients on proper inflation and deflation of the penile implant penile prosthesis.
Advantages of Our Minimally Invasive Penile Implant Procedure
Unlike pills and injections, which may be an effective erectile dysfunction treatment for some, our implant patients can perform sexual activity for as long as they choose, without restrictions. Our implant always functions, unlike medications, which have lesser rates of success.
Additionally, injections and medications require some preparation beforehand. Our minimally invasive penile implant can be used spontaneously, requiring no prior preparation.
