Erectile Dysfunction (ED)

Erectile Dysfunction, or ED, is the persistent inability to achieve and maintain an erection that is firm enough or lasts long enough to complete sexual intercourse. It is estimated that ED affects about 1 in 10 men at some point in their life. And, while ED is a common condition, it is not a normal part of aging.

The occasional failure to achieve or maintain an erection due to factors such as excessive alcohol consumption, extreme fatigue or severe stress is common for most men at some point in their lives. Persistent ED, however, is often a sign of an underlying health condition that should be addressed with your physician. The good news is that almost every case of ED is treatable and our specialists tailor therapies to each individual.

Treatment Options for Erectile Dysfunction (ED)

The AMS 700™ Penile Implant is the number-one physician preferred implant designed to look and feel natural. Its design closely mimics a natural erection, providing rigidity when inflated and a natural, flaccid appearance when deflated.

The AMS 700 Penile Implant includes a pair of cylinders implanted in the penis, a pump placed inside the scrotum, and a reservoir of saline placed in the lower abdomen. Squeezing and releasing the pump moves fluid into the cylinders, creating an erection. Deflate the device by pressing the deflation button on the pump. The penis then returns to a soft, flaccid and natural-looking state.
