Erection Problems (Erectile Dysfunction)
In a few cases, surgery may be an option to treat erection problems. Surgery will rarely be recommended before nonsurgical treatment and counseling have been tried.
What to think about
Think carefully about nonsurgical options and about the possible risks of surgery. Include your partner in your decision.
Doctors who specialize in conditions of the urinary tract (urologists) do most penile implants. Specially trained urologic surgeons usually do blood vessel repair surgery.
