There are no lifestyle changes to make after the implantation of the penile device. As with any surgery, there is risk of infection, but Dr. Eid's procedure has an infection rate of 0.38%.
For the treatment of advanced erectile dysfunction, there are a variety of treatments including oral medications, vacuum devices, penile injections, and penile implant devices. Dr. Eid highlights oral medications, penile injections and penile implants as the most effective treat of ED.

Dr J. Francois Eid Narrates No-Touch Technique Penile Implant Procedure.
Dr. J. Francois Eid innovator of the No-Touch Technique discusses recent outcomes with his technique & it's important role within prosthetic urology.
Hypothesis of No-Touch Technique:
Irwin Goldstein hosts an open panel with surgeons Irwin Goldstein, MD, J. Francois Eid, MD, Paul Perito, MD, and Andrew Kramer, MD discussing penile implantation technique and patient outcomes.
Dr. Francois Eid, leading penile prosthesis surgeon, details his innovative No-Touch Technique for achieving a near-zero infection rate during penile implant surgery. Images of inflatable penile prosthesis surgery demonstrate Dr. Eid's cutting edge approach to the penile implant procedure.

This video illustrates one of the advantages of the No-Touch Technique, which is the ability to adjust the length of the cylinder and maximize penile length without contaminating the device with skin bacteria. One of the reasons why the penis' are shorter after a penile implant is the reluctance of physicians to remove the cylinders from the penis once they are placed, adjust the length, and reposition them because of the risk of contaminating the device with skin. This concern is avoided by the use of the No-Touch, which Dr. Eid invented in 2006.
Dr. Eid answers questions about penile implant surgery. Many penile prosthesis candidates ask about the size of the penis after implantation, as well as questions about ejaculation and urination with a penile implant.
Dr. Eid addresses patient concern questions related to urination, ejaculation and orgasm after penile implant surgery.

Dr. Eid advises patients on recovery after penile implantation procedure. For those that have undergone the procedure, there will be a timeline for you returning to normal activities as you recover.
Dr. Eid shows a patient inflating and deflating his penile implant.
Dr. Eid's patient inflates/deflates his Coloplast Titan penile implant one year after his penile implant procedure.
Dr. Eid shows one of his patients inflating his LGX prosthesis that was implanted over 7.5 years ago. The implant is still working perfectly.
Dr. J Francois Eid demonstrates the inflation and deflation of a two-piece penile implant. These devices are an excellent option for men with extensive pelvic surgery.
Dr. Eid discusses and illustrates the use of a Titan Penile Implant for the treatment of Erectile Dysfunction in a patient with Peyronie's disease. The post-op journey is documented from the 2nd to the 4th week following the procedure.
This video describes the effectiveness of penile implants to correct severe curvature caused by Peyronie's disease without losing penile length. Even though the patient was potent, his curvature was so severe that his best option was the use of a penile implant because otherwise he would have lost a significant amount of length. So much so that intercourse would no longer be possible. Indeed the most common complaint following correction of angulation caused by Peyronie's Disease is inadequate penile size.
Dr. Eid discusses a patient that has conquered prostate cancer and has now cured his ED and urinary incontinence with an inflatable penile prosthesis (IPP) and an artificial urinary sphincter (AUS).
Dr. J. Francois Eid goes through the placement and removal of a malleable implant following an infection. The malleable is then replaced with a three-piece penile implant with a great outcome and you can see the patient inflating and deflating the implant.
Dr. Eid demonstrates inflation and deflation of penis pump on patients.
Dr. Eid advises patients on what to expect before a penile implantation procedure. Before surgery, penile prosthesis candidates will visit the office for a consultation, doppler exam, measurements, and cardiac test. Dr. Eid also gives advice on what to bring to the surgery center the day of your penile implantation procedure.
Before a penile implanatation procedure, Dr. Eid will perform a duplex ultrasonography of the penis. An injection-induced erection will be measured and recorded to guarantee results to the patient.
