Penile Implant Surgical Techniques
Chesapeake Urology’s team of penile implant surgeons perform what is called peno-scrotal and infra-pubic surgical techniques with a “no-touch” approach to the penile implant surgery.
What exactly does this mean?
- In the peno-scrotal approach, your surgeon makes an incision underneath the penis to place the three-pieces of the prosthesis. The Placement of the pump in this technique is typically more direct.
- The infra-pubic approach involves a small incision in the pelvic area directly above the penis. Because there is no scrotal incision in this method, pump manipulation of the implant may begin sooner than with a scrotal approach and the surgery usually takes less time than a peno-scrotal approach
- “No Touch” refers to the way the implant procedure is performed to minimize the occurrence of infection. The surgeon inserts the penile implant without touching the skin to reduce the incidence of post-surgical infection. This can be done by changing the surgical gloves and avoiding skin contact with the penile prosthetic device.
It’s important to know that there is no one-size-fits-all solution. Every man is unique. Your surgeon will choose the optimal method based on your anatomy, surgical history, and individual needs for the very best outcomes.
