May 24, 2010 19:23 ET Dr. J. Francois Eid: Why the Penile Implant Is the Only Erectile Dysfunction Option That Restores Spontaneity and Offers a Permanent Solution

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - May 24, 2010) -  When all other erectile dysfunction (ED) treatment options, such as medications or injections have failed, many patients rely on the penile implant for a more spontaneous and permanent solution. "Simply put, only the penile implant enables a man to obtain an erection when he wants for however long he wants it," says Dr. J. Francois Eid, director of Advanced Urological Care, and Clinical Associate Professor of Urology at Weill/Cornell Medical College in New York City. Unlike medications or injections that must be administered in advance of a sexual encounter, a penile implant, also known as penile pumps or Inflatable Penile Prostheses (IPP), is the only option that requires no planning.

"Penile implants help men restore an active sex life with the only permanent solution on the market," continued Dr. Eid, who has performed more internal penile prosthesis surgeries than anyone in the world, over 300 per year. "Additionally, the IPP has a natural design that can give men the ability to maintain an erection for as long as it is desired." The IPP eliminates the need for drugs or injections, that need forethought and oftentimes, prescriptions.

Penile implants are the best option for sufferers of erectile dysfunction due to nerve or blood vessel damage as a result of diabetes, atherosclerosis, previous surgery, alcohol or medication. Many ED sufferers will no longer respond to medication after prolonged use. Injections can be painful and require the patient to administer their own injection. Additionally, injections lack spontaneity and delay or interrupt sex considerably since it must be administered before sexual activity begins. The resulting anxiety understandably prompts men to seek a more permanent solution, like the IPP. 

The IPP is a soft device, filled with water and salt, which expands and contracts without compromising elasticity. It consists of three components: thin tubes, the pump, and reservoir. The reservoir contains the fluid, which is transferred by the pump into the tube. This fluid causes the penis to expand and become rigid. The penile implant is so natural that, if not informed, the partner would not know of its existence. This ambulatory procedure typically takes one to two hours; the patient can go home the same day.

The risk of infection with the IPP is reduced, thanks to Dr. Eid's own "No-Touch" Technique. This technique prevents direct contact with bacteria to effectively eliminate infections. Normal sensation is preserved. Patients feel the same as they had before the procedure, with normal orgasms. The IPP does not interfere with ejaculation. Most importantly, the permanence and spontaneity of the IPP reduce performance anxiety and provides equal satisfaction to partners.
