List of Implant Surgeons
« on: October 17, 2018, 10:21:53 AM »

This is a beginning list of high volume (well over 100 per year) implant specialists with very positive patient feedback.  Keep in mind that there can be and there are complications including infection with every surgeon.  The rate of these complications is, however, substantially reduced with a high volume surgeon as is size loss.  By the same token, there are low volume doctors that produce satisfactory results in many patients but the rate of complication is greatly increased.

Possible complications include but is not limited to: Infection (always requires removal of the implant), Size loss, instability of erection (points down, wobbles), Visible or palpable tubing, Over-sizing ( requires surgery)

This list is not an endorsement but is provided as a beginning point for patients to do their own research and choose their surgeon wisely.

California

Edward Karpman,  MD.
San Francisco Bay Area

Maryland

Andrew Kramer

A high volume implant surgeon. He posts videos on youtube very often so you can see the whole process.


New York

Dr. Francois Eid
Manhattan, NY
https://www.edcureonline.com/doctors/detail.php?ID=82
He has likely performed more inflatable implant surgeries than any surgeon in the world.  Dr. Eid is known for developing the no-touch technique to greatly reduce the risk of infection. Has famously low infection rates (under 1%) -----  Seldom can one find a world renown surgeon who is so kind, friendly, and accessible to his patients?  He is a doctor that is so interested in his patients.  He gives them his cell phone and personally returns calls on the weekend.  Also does verapamil injections and other treatments for Peyronies Disease, and erectile dysfunction. - Covered by Medicare and most insurance.

United Kingdom

Dr. David Ralph
London
https://www.uclh.nhs.uk/OurServices/Consultants/Pages/MrDavidRalph.aspx
Possibly the highest Volume implant surgeon in the U.K. - some have indicated a higher satisfaction rate among patients that see him privately rather than through the NHS

North Carolina

Dr Aaron Lentz
Last year, 145 implants
Raleigh NC, Duke Hospital

Hi...Do you have a name of a high implant surgeon in the Massachusetts area or New England area? Have you ever heard of Dr. Ricardo Munarriz in the Boston area?

Thanks

Thank you for the suggestion. We Don't have much info on him on the board, especially in terms of successful outcomes in the long term, from our members. I wonder what would the rest of the staff thinks about adding it to the list? No offense meant, but I would prefer to wait it out at least for your outcome.

I am definitely open to debate on the matter.

I’m wondering about another tier of reported high volume docs but currently without lots of recommendations from members yet.

I have no idea how many implants he does a year. I do know he is a straight shooter that tells it like he sees it and will spend whatever time is needed to discuss the issues. Doctor James Rybak in Belleville Illinois. Not only did he show my wife and I the AMS LGX and the Titan side by side and explain the differences and why I should have had a Titan to start with, he told us that so many things were wrong with my implant that I should see a doctor with more skill than he had. Doctor Eid was the top on his list he suggested. Very few doctors are that sincere with a patient. When local doctors refused to see me for follow-up, he said no problem. He didn't care who did my implant, he would still do follow-up care if I needed it. A truly nice guy.   St. Louis Missouri urologists have a very bad reputation of being complete assholes.  I know many who have and have seen many there. Most of us end up going out of state for implant surgery because of their petty bickering and quackerie.   St. Louis has 2 good medical schools but the urology departments are a train wreck.  Belleville Illinois is just across the river.   I would recommend Doctor Rybak to anyone and at the very least, he would be a fair, honest first assessment.   Cheers.

Rybak is one of Levine of Chicago's students but without the attitude of Levine. I have not doubt he learned some good skills but also knows his limitations experience wise or a least proceeds with caution. Cheers.
