Surgery for ED - a Medical View

While surgery should never be the first choice when it comes to issues like Erectile Dysfunction, many sufferers, frustrated by the lack of options, end up turning to surgery to remedy the condition. However, surgery for Erectile Dysfunction isn’t quite as effective as some believe, and there may be more effective options available for you.

There are several major forms of surgery for Erectile Dysfunction, with each option having its own advantages and drawbacks:

Vascular Reconstructive Surgery: With blood flow to the penis being one of the major physical issues resulting in Erectile Dysfunction, this surgery is designed to bypass certain arteries, restoring the flow of blood to the penis. With a relatively low success rate for this kind of surgery, it’s very much a last option for most ED sufferers.

Penile Prosthesis Options: While there’s various kinds of penile prosthesis available, from rod-based treatments to inflatable options, penile prosthesis surgery involves a prosthesis being surgically inserted into the penis to restore sexual function. This option works for most, but may put some off, with some prostheses significantly altering how the penis looks and feels (particularly with the permanent semi-rigidity of the rod prosthetic). 

Surgery for Peyronie’s Disease: While Peyronie’s Disease isn’t a form of ED, those affected by the condition often experience Erectile Dysfunction, and have traditionally seen surgery as the only real option. Recently, though, new research has indicated that the use of vacuum pumps can have a positive impact on Peyronie’s sufferers - our treating Peyronie’s Disease page explains more.


Non-Surgical Treatment for Erectile Dysfunction

Considering the costs and potential risks of surgery for Erectile Dysfunction, the majority of specialists will only recommend it as a last choice. However, that doesn’t necessarily mean that you’re being given the full list of potential ways to improve the symptoms of ED.

Helping approximately 9 out of 10 ED sufferers recover full sexual capacity, vacuum pumps are a frequently overlooked way to improve the effects of Erectile Dysfunction. When used, ED pumps create a vacuum around the penis, quickly drawing in blood, resulting in an erection.

Any vacuum pump can make a real difference for ED: we just make the very best option available. Built to remove the issues people report with standard ED pumps, VaxAid can be used in air (like other pumps), or in water for a more convenient, discreet and comfortable experience. For added convenience, VaxAid delivers more vacuum power than other pumps, which can result in quicker (and longer lasting) erections.

Depending on your condition, our different VaxAid models can provide differing levels of support. Our VaxAid Guide page explains the differences - get in touch if you'd like more in-depth advice on which pump will benefit you the most. We guarantee that VaxAid will make a difference for you, with our 60-day satisfaction promise including a full refund if you’re not impressed.
