It is usually seen in men over the age of 40. Insufficient erection of the penis during sexual intercourse can also cause psychological problems such as anxiety and stress in men and their partners.
How Is Erectile Dysfunction Treated?
First of all, the patient should be well evaluated, examined and diagnosed. Afterwards, Lifestyle Change Suggestions, Oral Treatment Applications, Shock Wave Therapy, P-Shot, Stem Cell, Intracavernous Injections are used. Erectile dysfunction surgery can be applied to those who cannot be treated with conventional methods or who do not want these treatments.
The surgical treatment of erectile dysfunction is penile prosthesis application. This surgery is a very satisfying surgery as there is no decrease in sexual feelings and sensations afterward. Two types of prostheses are used.
Bending Penile Prosthesis Surgery
This flexible, one-piece prosthesis is placed inside the tissue that hardens the penis (Corpus Cavernosum). It is a stick-shaped prosthesis that can be bent and opened by hand. The penis is always in an erection and can be bent and bent to the desired side. Compared with inflatable prostheses, the surgery is simpler and less costly. However, since it is always in an erection, it has the disadvantage of being noticed compared to inflatable prostheses. Patients cannot wear tight clothing such as swimsuits.
Inflatable Penile Prosthesis Surgery
It is the most suitable prosthesis for the physiological structure of the penis. It can be two-piece or 3-piece. It is the most preferred prosthesis among patients. Inflatable prosthesis is a device that contains liquid and is placed in the penile tissue that provides the hardening of the penis, and can be inflated when necessary. It consists of two rod prostheses, a reservoir and a pump. Today, the inflatable prosthesis is the most commonly preferred type of prosthesis. There is no loss in the patient's sense of feeling and pleasure. Penile prosthesis does not prevent semen from coming out. The patient can make the penis into an erection at any time with a pump placed next to the ovaries.
Its advantage is that it is natural and it is not understood that it is a prosthesis from the outside. The downside is that it's expensive. Post-operative results are very natural and others do not understand that you have had surgery.
