First things first, understanding what penile implant surgery entails can help ease any nerves. This surgery is designed to help folks who are dealing with erectile dysfunction (ED) that hasn't responded to other treatments. It's all about restoring sexual function and confidence - and we're proud to support you every step of the way.

During the procedure, a medical device is placed inside the penis, which allows you to achieve an erection. It sounds complex, but our skilled surgeons have performed countless of these surgeries, which means you're in the most capable of hands.

As your surgery date approaches, our team will provide you with a comprehensive to-do list. It'll have all those tiny details you won't want to miss: from managing your medications and what to pack for the hospital, to arranging for your ride home after the procedure. Think of it as your personal roadmap to surgery day.

Communication is key! Make sure to have a heart-to-heart with your doctor before the big day. Come with a list of questions about the surgery, recovery, and anything else that's on your mind. No detail is too small if it matters to you, and our docs at Erlanger East Hospital are ready to chat.

Alright, team, there are a few no-nos before surgery that we need to chat about. Our priority is your safety, so follow these guidelines closely:

  • Avoid certain medications and supplements that can increase bleeding risk.
