Penile Implant Benefits

If you're reading this, you’ve likely been struggling with erectile dysfunction for some time now, and you’re researching your options. Or, perhaps you’ve tried a few solutions and found that they’re just not for you.

Here at our practice, Dr. Robert Cornell is one of the nation’s foremost prosthetic urologists, and he’s helped scores of men regain their sex lives with penile implants.

In the following, we explore the many benefits of penile implants and why they may be just the solution you’re looking for to resolve your erectile dysfunction, once and for all.

Penile implants at a glance

Before we get into the many benefits of penile implants, let’s quickly take a look at the different types of implants. 

In brief, there are two types of penile implants: bendable and inflatable.


With these implants, Dr. Cornell places two flexible silicone rods into the erection chambers of your penis. When you want an erection, you manually adjust the rods to produce the desired effect.


With inflatable implants, Dr. Cornell places silicone tubes into your erection chambers which you can inflate using a pump, which we discreetly place in your scrotum.

A more permanent solution

One of the biggest advantages of penile implants is that they offer a more permanent and sustainable solution to your erection problems. Rather than relying on oral medications or injections, your implant is ready to go when you are.

A discreet solution

Since your implant is always on call, you don’t need to excuse yourself in the heat of the moment or plan ahead with oral medications. Instead, you can let events unfold naturally. When you’re ready, you discreetly “create” an erection when the time is right.

Additionally, you can just as discreetly undo your erection when it's time.

An effective solution

If you want an approach that’s effective and enjoys a high satisfaction rate, penile implants certainly fit these bills. To wit, 90-95% of inflatable prosthesis surgeries are successful in producing erections that suit your sexual needs. Furthermore, 80-90% of recipients are satisfied enough with the results that they would opt to do it again.

Products matter

While penile implants are typically successful, we believe in going the extra distance by only offering products that are top quality. 

At our practice, we turn to industry leaders in the field and offer the:

While we outlined some numbers above about how well men like their penile implants, the AMS systems report an even higher satisfaction rate of more than 90%.
