MTP #55: Post-Operative Care Following a Penile Implant

Dr. Paul PeritoMeet the Penis, penile implant

In this episode, Dr. Paul Perito discusses the concerns and symptoms of someone who was experiencing complications following a penile implant performed by another surgeon. The patient in question now has floppy glans syndrome and an implant pump placed higher than they preferred. Dr. Perito addresses these concerns, and advises that while penile implant surgery typically has at least a 98% patient satisfaction rate, it’s important to undergo the procedure at a dedicated center, follow post-operative instructions to the letter, and to follow up with any concerns or complications that may be addressed with physical rehabilitation or coaching.
