The Urology Specialists of Maryland at Mercy Medical Center in Baltimore, Maryland, diagnoses and treats a variety of conditions and diseases of the male reproductive organs. Our doctors offer penile prosthesis as a treatment for erectile dysfunction.
A penile prosthesis is a treatment option for men who are not able to either achieve an erection or keep one (erectile dysfunction). Erectile dysfunction can be a side effect of medication, chronic illness, or lifestyle issues like overindulgent drinking, exhaustion or smoking.
Penile implants are either bendable or inflatable devices.
The doctors of The Urology Specialists of Maryland will help patients determine what type of penile prosthesis is best suited for your conditions.
When erectile dysfunction has a clear medical reason and it will not likely resolve itself and medications aren’t effective, a penile implant to achieve an erection is an option. Men who have Peyronie’s disease (curved penis) are also candidates for penile prosthesis.
