Understand­ing Penile Implants for Diabetes Patients


Men who have diabetes are three times more likely to have erectile dysfunctio­n (ED) than men who don’t, according to Dr. J. Francois Eid, director and founder of Advanced Urological Care in New York City. As one of the most common causes of ED, diabetes is to blame in sufferers as much as 10 to 15 years earlier than in men without diabetes.

The main risk of penile implant surgery when performed by an experience­d surgeon is infection, which has historical­ly been very low, one percent, and is the same for men with or without diabetes. However, Dr. Eid’s innovative “No-touch” surgical technique, which was developed over years of testing, combined with the use of antibiotic­s and antibiotic coated implants has caused penile implant infection rates to plummet to near zero.

Dr. Eid is a world-renowned surgeon and a foremost specialist in urological prosthetic reconstruc­tion. Dr. Eid performs over 300 penile implants per year, the highest number of anyone in the world.

With the risk of infection near zero, Dr. Eid’s “No Touch” technique should allay any fears. “There is absolutely no reason a diabetic patient should fear infection and deny themselves a healthy sex life with this technique,” states Eid.
