Penile Prosthesis Rehabilitation post Prostatectomy
For men who have erectile dysfunction resistant to medical therapies who have had Prostatectomy surgery, a Penile Prosthesis allows a permanent solution to this debilitating and often psychologically distressing condition. Studies indicate 93.8% of men were moderately or completely satisfied with their penile prosthesis choice. Dr Elmes implants both major types of penile prosthesis. The choice of implant is primarily dependant on each patient’s anatomy.
Dr Elmes only uses state of the art prostheses, which produce a more natural erection, maximised girth and rigidity, confident operation, easy one-handed deflation and minimal recovery time.
