MTP 75: Life After Prostatectomy

Dr. Paul Peritoerectile dysfunction, Meet the Penis, penile implant

In this episode of MTP, Dr. Perito answers a viewer question about patients who experience ED following a prostatectomy. While many surgeons recommend waiting one year before considering penile implant surgery following the removal of the prostate, in certain cases, veno occlusive disease manifests in the penis within three months.

Case studies have officially found that once veno occlusive disease manifests after prostatectomy, it is typically permanent, meaning a consistent loss of penile length AND girth.

In short, if you’ve had a prostatectomy and have ED, it’s important to act as quickly as possible.
