Video Tuesday: Penile Pump Surgery

Posted Jun 16 2009 6:00pm

Erectile dysfunction is something that many men experience but few like to admit to. But, if you don’t admit to it, you can’t get help. For some men, this may mean taking medications like Viagra, for others, it may mean using mechanical help, like penile pumps.

“Also known as an “inflatable penile prosthesis”, the penile pump is a remarkable device which can restore the possibility of intercourse to men suffering from severe sexual dysfunction. Not to be confused with a penile enlargement, the penile pump is a completely internal mechanism which allows a man to have a full erection at any time — without planning ahead, as is necessary with other treatments.”
