Surgical intervention (Penile Implant surgery) is considered the definitive treatment when all forms of treatment fail. The procedure which is about two hours long surgery with a hospital stay of between two to seven days comes with a small incision which is virtually invisible after healing. The advantage of this surgery is that patients who successfully undergo this resume a normal sexual life with their partners. They can also have as many children as they want; if prior to surgery they were fertile, the Sexopathologist said.
