MTP #69: Penile Implants Under Local Anesthesia

Dr. Paul PeritoMeet the Penis, penile implant

For our 69th (!) episode, Dr. Paul Perito discusses the usage of local anesthesia for patients undergoing penile implant surgery. Patients and their loved ones are often apprehensive about undergoing general anesthetic, the associated risks and the discomfort of having a tube down the patient’s throat. This is why Dr. Perito uses local anesthetic with IV sedation, which has better results, is safer and results in less post-operative pain.
