    • Peyronie's Disease

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.

Thank you, Hawk.  I just want to make sure I'm looking at the right Dr. Eid, is it Dr. J. Francois Eid at https://www.urologicalcare.com/ that you're referring to in your posts?

Dr. Kramer in Baltimore is now with Chesapeake Urology. He is pretty well known for his penile implants and surgeries.

I went to Raleigh NC, see my thread for details of the doctor. He did a great job.
