The Center for Advanced Urological Care (the "Center") has provided this website and the information on it (collectively, the "Service") for educational purposes only. All materials presented within the Service are the opinion of the Center, and are intended to be instructional and not for medical diagnosis or treatment. The Center disclaims any expressed or implied guarantee about the accuracy, completeness, timeliness, or relevance of the Service.
The Service should not be relied on to suggest a course of treatment for a particular individual, and it should not be used in place of a visit, call, consultation or the advice of a physician or other qualified health care provider. You should call or see your physician or other qualified health care provider promptly if you have any health care related questions or before embarking on a new treatment, diet, or fitness program. You should never disregard or delay in seeking medical advice from your physician or other qualified health care provider because of something you have read, heard, or seen on the Service.
The Center also disclaims any expressed or implied guarantee about the results or experience any patient may have with any described or demonstrated treatment. The pictures and information presented within the Service are based on the Center's doctor's over twenty years of personal experience, with over 4,000 cases. With the Internal Penile Pump procedure, only a handful of physicians in the world currently have the level of experience the Center has; you may not achieve the same results or outcome as the Center's patients if you choose to have surgery performed by less experienced individuals. The Internal Penile Pump procedure works best when it is done well the first time. All subsequent revisions give a less than desirable outcome because of the formation of scar tissue, shortening of the penis, and areas of numbness.
The Center understands that you have the full right to choose the surgeon you want to perform these procedures. However the Center wishes to remind you that the penis is a sensitive organ of which the owner gets only one, and surgery does not come with a return policy. We at the Center could not recommend more strongly that you have any surgery performed by the most experienced doctor; this may not be the urologist recommended through your medical plan. Ask yourself if the structure, function, and appearance of your penis are worth one of the best surgeons in the world, or a surgeon recommended by a medical plan looking to cut costs.
The use of a penile prosthesis to obtain an erection to permit sexual activity offers no protection against sexually transmitted diseases. Patients need to take the same protective measures necessary to guard against sexually transmitted diseases, including Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) as a patient without an implant.
