Let's dive into the details, exploring how Erlanger East Hospital can help illuminate the path towards a comfortable and confident experience with your penile implant.

Penile implants are medical devices placed inside the penis to allow men with erectile dysfunction (ED) to get an erection. These devices are especially helpful for those who haven't found success with other ED treatments. With Erlanger East Hospital 's expert guidance, you can learn to manage your implant with ease, making sure you regain not only function but also the joy and intimacy of your personal life.

Understanding the different types of penile implants is the first step in your journey. There is the inflatable implant, which you can pump up when an erection is desired, and the malleable implant, which remains firm but bendable. Our team at Erlanger East Hospital will explain the specifics of each type and help you determine the best way to operate your particular implant.

Whether you have an inflatable or malleable implant, knowing how to use it properly is crucial. We provide clear, step-by-step instructions tailored to your needs. For those with inflatable implants, we'll teach you how to inflate and deflate the device with confidence. For malleable implant users, we'll show you how to position the penis both for sexual intercourse and daily activities.

These demonstrations are not just verbal; our care team provides hands-on training so that you can practice these operations in a safe and comfortable environment. This practical approach ensures that you leave our office feeling prepared and secure in your ability to manage the implant on your own.
