Treatment of erectile dysfunction planned for individuals with erectile dysfunction begins with drug therapy. Surgical penile prosthesis treatment, known as Penile Prosthesis, can be applied to individuals who cannot get results from other treatment methods, such as drug applications and external vacuum devices. Erectile dysfunction is the inability to maintain the rigidity required to initiate or continue sexual activity. The incidence of this problem, especially in individuals over 40, may increase if age progresses and various health problems are present.
Which doctor should I go to for the treatment of erectile dysfunction?
For the treatment of erectile dysfunction, urology specialists should be consulted. It is usual for people who have problems with sexual performance to experience various reservations in explaining this issue to their physicians after applying to health institutions. However, it should not be forgotten that the problem of hardening is a problem that is well-understood and has many solutions. Penile Prosthesis treatment, which is applied surgically within the scope of the treatment of erection-related issues, is a very successful application with high patient satisfaction, mainly used for people with persistent erection problems and who have tried other treatment methods but have not been successful. Another essential feature of this surgical treatment method is that penile implants (Penile Prostheses) do not cause any change in the sensations that occur during sexual intercourse.
Non-Erectile Dysfunction Treatment with One-Piece Malleable Penile Prosthesis
One-piece malleable Penile Prosthesis treatment is performed by surgically placing two malleable cylinders into the penis. Although these penile implants create a constant state of stiffness in the person, they are straightforward to use because their positions can be adjusted easily. At the same time, one-piece malleable Penile Prosthesis surgery is shorter than the operations performed with an inflatable Penile Prosthesis. Despite all these positive features, some individuals may find the constant stiffness created by one-piece malleable Penile Implants disturbing.
Non-Erectile Dysfunction Treatment with 3-Piece Inflatable Penile Prosthesis
3-piece inflatable Penile Implants are the most commonly applied penile implants for the treatment of erectile dysfunction. Apart from the two cylinder rods placed in the penis, the reservoir placed in the abdomen and the pump in the testis is connected by a particular tube system. Penile prosthesis surgery is a procedure performed under general or local anaesthesia. In this procedure, the intervention area can be preferred as the lower abdomen, the base of the penis in the groin area, or just below the glans. Through small incisions made in these areas, the penis is reached, and the inner tissue of the penis is expanded to allow the placement of the Penile Prosthesis. After the stick, fluid reservoir, and pump are placed inside the body, the intervention areas are closed by suturing, and the procedure is completed.
After the procedure, physicians inform their patients about the care of the surgical area and how to use the implants. During the recovery period, people can return to their daily lives in a short time as a few days. In general, it is expected that full recovery, which varies between 4-6 weeks, is scheduled for returning to sexual activity by using the devices. The 3-piece inflatable Penile Prosthesis is activated by squeezing the pump in the testis. After this activation, the liquid in the reservoir located in the abdomen moves towards the Penile Prosthesis in the penis, allowing the erection to take place. Then, by squeezing the relaxer button at the desired time, the liquid in the Penile Prosthesis returns to the chamber, and thus the penis can be relaxed. 3-piece inflatable Penile Implants are penile prostheses that feel natural for both stiffness and relaxation.
