Penile Implant Surgery
The penile prosthesis or penile implant is one of the oldest and still effective treatments for treating erectile dysfunction. The implant device is surgically planted within the penile corpora cavernosa of the ED patient, which is known to show highly satisfactory results post- surgery.
Dr Shawket Alkhayal is providing the penile implant surgery in Duba in collaboration with Men's Health International Surgical Centre in Switzerland surgeons.
There are two types of implants currently in use. These are:
- The inflatable penile prosthesis - The prosthesis can re-create a natural erection
- Malleable penile prosthesis - The prosthesis can produce a permanently firm penis
Both of these implants are custom made for your body, which allows you to retain a successful and satisfactory erection during sexual intercourse.
Malleable penile prosthesis
The implant mechanism inflates the prosthesis, making the penis turn rigid, similar to a natural erection. The prosthesis doesn't increase or decrease the sensation of the penis or the patient’s ability to reach orgasm. Ejaculation is also unaffected. 80% to 90% of the men who underwent a penile implant surgery have reported highly satisfactory results.
