What is the No-Touch Technique (NTT)?
Dr. Eid believes that preventing direct contact with the source of bacteria is the most effective way of eliminating infections
. Therefore, a novel technique for prosthesis insertion entitled the No-Touch Technique (NTT)
was invented and pioneered by Dr. Eid in 2005 that allows the surgeon to completely insert a penile prosthesis in a patient without touching the skin to reduce the incidence of peri-prosthtetic infection. The technique was developed on the belief that eliminating any contact between the prosthesis and the skin, either directly or indirectly via surgical instruments or gloves, should reduce the incidence of contamination of the device with skin flora responsible for infection.
