Definition - What does Penile Prosthesis mean?

A penile prosthesis is an implant that is used as a solution to erection dysfunction. In general, penile implants are used only when there is a clear medical reason for ED, and it is unlikely to be resolved using any other method.

Kinkly explains Penile Prosthesis

There are a few different kinds of penile prosthesis available depending on what suits the individual best. The most simple type of prosthesis involves implanting malleable rods within the penis chamber. With this type of implant the penis remains in a state of semi-rigidity. The most popular choices for prosthesis include hydraulic or inflatable options, as these are much more natural, and allow an individual to have an erection when chosen. A penile prosthesis might also be used in cases of female to male gender reassignment surgery.
