Penile Implant: Whom, When, How?
“I underwent all the processes I thought might help, but nothing helped me. So I said, well, I have to do this because it’s the only solution I have. And, the only thing I regret is not doing it sooner, because I’m a much happier man after getting a penile implant.”

A penile implant is a discrete device that is placed into a man’s penis and is designed to help him get an erection. Once implanted, it helps put the man back in control of his body. It can be used at any time, straight away, unlike other treatment options , where there may be a short waiting period for them to be effective.
