What is the Single Best Treatment for ED?

The first four treatment options are all long term medical therapies that can help manage the problem, but none of them actually provide a cure for Erectile Dysfunction.  Although I have patients that utilize all of these medical treatments successfully, approximately 70% of patients discontinue their therapy within one year of follow-up due to the lack of spontaneity and reliability, and the presence of ongoing side effects and cost.

Fortunately, when these four medical treatments fail, there is hope! The single best treatment for Erectile Dysfunction is the Penile Implant. It has the highest patient satisfaction rate compared to any other treatments available. As opposed to the medical therapies listed above, the Penile Implant is the only treatment that definitively cures your ED. Simply, it’s a 30-minute minimally invasive outpatient procedure that fixes the problem.

While the Penile Implant is often the best solution for men who have failed other conservative therapies, it still remains a relative secret to the community at-large due to a lack of education and marketing. For many years, penile implants have been misunderstood, and both primary care physicians and urologists have failed to educate their patients about this highly successful solution. Despite the potentially scary image, the Penile Implant is quick and easy to perform. It has a modest recovery, with patients being completely healed in only three weeks. And most importantly, only a small percentage of urologists perform penile implants in high volume. Therefore, it is very important to find a urologist who specializes in Men’s Health and Penile Implants, a Prosthetic Urologist, in order to obtain the most comprehensive evaluation and effective treatment for your ED.
