When should I get a penile prosthesis for erectile dysfunction (ED)?

An extreme option for treating erectile dysfunction is to undergo penile implant surgery. There are a variety of prostheses, but you should talk to your doctor about possible complications. For example, there are prostheses that have you walking around semi-erect 24/7, which can obviously be uncomfortable. And inflatable prostheses can easily malfunction.
