Penile Implants

Most problems of erectile dysfunction and impotence are treated non-surgically. However, some patients need a penile prosthesis or implant to regain a normal sexual life. Various types of implants are available including an inflatable hydraulic implant, a semi-rigid rod implant, or variations of the two. The patient makes the choice of implant, depending on his desires or social situation. The success rate for penile implants is over 90%. I have been performing penile implants for over 30 years with excellent results.

Patients occasionally need a revision of their penile prostheses due to poor positioning or malfunction. Owing to my vast experience with these implants, I also specialize in complicated revisions and re-insertions of failed prostheses. It is very rare that the prosthesis cannot be repaired or replaced, even if the patient had previous malposition and infections.

As a best in class plastic surgeon, Dr. Gary Alter provides highly personalized and comprehensive care. His philosophy regarding the physician / patient relationship is based on trust and has earned him one of the most respected reputations in the world.
