An Overview of Penis Implants for Erectile Dysfunction
Erectile dysfunction (ED) is characterized as the repeated inability to get or keep an erection firm enough for sexual intercourse. The health condition can cause men to lose intimacy and closeness with their partner, as well as cause a lack of self-confidence. Men in the Plano, Frisco and Dallas, Texas area now have a variety of ED treatment options available to them, including penis implants for erectile dysfunction. Dr. Mark Allen offers three primary types of penis implants – the AMS Non-Inflatable Penile Implant, the AMS Ambicor 2-Piece Inflatable Penile Implant and the AMS 700 Series 3-Piece Inflatable Penile Implant.
What to Know About Erectile Dysfunction
Erectile dysfunction, sometimes referred to as impotence, is the repeated inability to get or keep an erection firm enough for sexual intercourse. Other problems that interfere with sexual intercourse and reproduction are also often called impotence, so the term erectile dysfunction is used to clarify the issue.
Erectile dysfunction can cause the total inability to achieve erection, an unpredictable ability to achieve an erection or a tendency to sustain erections only briefly. Due to these varieties of erectile dysfunction, it is sometimes difficult to define in patients.
Penis Implants for Erectile Dysfunction as an ED Treatment
Erectile dysfunction treatment has come a long way in recent years. Also known as “erectile restoration”, penile (penis) implant options are changing the way men live with erectile dysfunction. Every penis implant produced is engineered to provide men with a satisfying solution for their ED.
