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.

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.

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.   

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.

Has anyone on the forum had any experience with Dr. Suh in Indianapolis, Indiana? Prononunced like 'duh'. I was originally sent to him by my first urologist to confirm my lump was benign, since I have a metastatic history. I was told that 'all he does is penises'. He jfelt the lump, said it was peyronies, said my only option was implant surgery. That's about all I know about him. Anybody have any experience with him?
 
Thanks.

I don't think so.  I have not seen his name here.  I assume this is him https://www.urologyin.com/providers/ronald-s-suh-md-facs

I notice he is listed as prostate cancer and general urology as well.  That does not eliminate him but there are doctors who are more specialized.  I would want one who does over 100 per year.

Yes, that is him. He was pretty 'high speed' with the one appointment that I saw him. No test other than palpating the scarring. This was early in the scarring process, as the bend and narrowing hadn't even happened. This was actually at the point when the plaque had actually straightened my congenital curve. He said implants would be my only option. After seeing pentox on the forum, I recalled that he did prescribe it. However, I distinctly remember him telling me it was only to help with the pain and inflammation, as it was quite painful at the time. I had a drug interaction or contraindication that made pentox kind of iffy, so I just let it go, since he told me it WAS JUST FOR THE PAIN. Now, I know better, and holy crap. This guy is off the table, as he dropped the ball for me.
 
Thanks for looking him up and your opinion.
