These two reports/studies clearly indicate that high volume penile implant surgeons have a significantly lower incidence which seems to be largely driven by what is possibly the most feared outcome which is an infection.

The first study is a NY state only study so the rates are probably lower since some men would go out of state for a salvage operation.  I just add here that Dr. Eid has significantly less than a 1% infection rate and uses the "No-Touch" system that he developed for IPP surgery.  Always insist on a surgeon giving their own documented infection rates and do not let them just quote averages or industry-wide probability.
