Penile Implant

A penile implant is a device that is placed into a man’s body and is designed to help him get an erection. Get the facts on an alternative long-term treatment, that is covered by many insurance plans, which allows an erection as often as you like, for as long as you wish.

There are two basic types of penile implants:

  • The Titan Touch® and Titan® OTR inflatable penile implant.
  • The Genesis™ flexible rod penile implant

Both implants enable men with erectile dysfunction to have a satisfactory erection for sexual intercourse and to experience the joys of sex again. You should be able to have an orgasm with a penile implant if you were able to have one before your surgery, unless you have another medical problem that affects it. Consult your physician about this.

The primary difference between the two implant types is that flexible rod implants (the Genesis) produce a permanently firm penis, while the inflatable implants (the Titan) produce a controlled, more natural erection.

The Coloplast Titan Touch inflatable penile implant is a self-contained, fluid-filled system made from Bioflex and silicone. Bioflex is a supple, durable biopolymer material.

  • The only IPP with a true lockout valve located at the base of the reservoir.
  • Designed to emulate the look and performance of a natural erection.
  • Pump design has a non-bulky, low-profile size.

The Titan Touch inflatable penile implant offers a dependable method of restoring sexual function.

  • It is the result of advanced engineering and medical research designed with your needs in mind.
  • It offers hope to many men with ED.
  • It provides an option where other treatments are not appropriate or have failed.
