Dr. Jones treats patients with erectile dysfunction

How the 3-Piece Penile Prosthesis Implant Inflates and Deflates

This animation sequence shows how a penile prosthesis device works. A penile prosthesis or penile implant is a surgical treatment option for men with erectile dysfunction. It is appropriate for men whose impotence is not treatable by less invasive solutions such as medication or men who opt not to use more conservative therapies such as pills (Viagra, Levitra, Cilias), MUSE tablets or tri-mix penile injections. A penile implant is placed surgically by a urologist. Dr. LeRoy Jones at Urology San Antonio performs this procedure and is one of the most experienced penile implant surgeons in the world based on the number of surgical cases performed.

AMS 700™ Inflatable Penile Prosthesis

ED treatment can be surgical or non-surgical. For patients who need surgical treatment, the AMS 700™ inflatable penile prosthesis may be right choice. The inflatable penile prosthesis works on demand by allowing men to have a natural erection. The implant is completely private and sexual partners are unaware of the implant. Over 90% of patients are satisfied with the AMS 700™ inflatable penile prosthesis. Dr. Jones is an expert at performing penile implants. He trained at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston where the implant was invented. He worked directly with Brantley Scott, the man who invented the procedure. Scott helped Dr. Jones develop his surgical skill for the more complex cases. In his career so far, Dr. Jones has performed over 2,000 prosthetic procedures.

Placement of the Inflatable Penile Prosthesis

For men facing erectile dysfunction that has not been cured with more conservative treatments, the surgical placement of an inflatable penile prosthesis (IPP) is an effective, permanent solution. Similarly, severe urine leakage can be corrected with an artificial urinary sphincter (AUS). These medical problems often coexist in men who have undergone treatment for prostate cancer.

Testosterone Pellet Insertion Demonstration

Urologist LeRoy A. Jones, MD demonstrates how a testosterone pellet is inserted under the skin in a male patient's hip area. The procedure is performed in the doctor's office while the patient is alert. A numbing injection keeps the patient from feeling pain. The incision is so small stitches are sutures are not required.
