    • Penile implants is a device that is surgically implanted inside the penis that allows a man that suffers from an erectile dysfunction disorder to have an erection. (Mayo Clinic 2011)
  • 4. How Does it Work?
    • The penile implant is placed surgerically either through one incision under the scrotum or through an incision under the lower abdomen.
    • Usually the device is filled with saline and the patient has a pump which is hidden under the scrotum. By pressing on the pump the saline travels through a reservoir and travels into the device. (University 2011)
  • 5. How Does it Work?
    • The device has two chambers and when the chambers are inflated by the pump, the patient then has an erection.
    • When the patient is finished, they can deflate the device. (University 2011)
  • 6. Penile Implants
