Erectile dysfunction is a common condition that affects more than 30 million men in the US. It is a medical condition that should be taken seriously! Your penis is an organ that provides vital functions for your body. Suffering from erectile dysfunction does not mean that your sex life is over. There are a number of treatment options that can help eradicate this condition. One of these treatment options is surgery.
Surgery Options for Erectile Dysfunction
Surgery is an option used by men who have suffered from erectile dysfunction. There are different options based upon age, health conditions and how the erectile dysfunction was obtained.
- Vascular Reconstruction: Generally recommended for men who are younger suffering from erectile dysfunction and those who have had their penis injured resulting in erectile dysfunction.
- Penile implants: These can come as malleable or inflatable pieces to go within the penis. These are recommended if medically there are issues with the erectile dysfunction that disallow treatment of it through medication and other treatment options.
- Semirigid or Malleable Rod Implants: Two matching cylinders are implanted into the penis. This is the least expensive option in terms of penile implants for erectile dysfunction.
- Inflatable Implants: Two cylinders are placed within the penis along with a pump being placed in the scrotum. For this type of implant you squeeze the pump to inflate the cylinders. This type of erectile dysfunction implant will last from 7 to 10 years.
