The course will take place October 31 - November 2, 2019.
Attendees will gain important surgical prosthetic skills for standard procedures in erectile restoration, Peyronie’s disease, and stress urinary incontinence. They will also learn about patient selection and care during all phases of surgery.

Research Summary: IPP Fungal Infections
Couples rate penile implants highly, with satisfaction rates of at least 90% for 2-piece inflatable, 3-piece inflatable, and malleable types. However, inflatable devices are generally preferred over malleable ones.
In a recent Journal of Sexual Medicine study, researchers polled almost 900 couples. Two-piece and 3-piece implants had satisfaction rates of 96.1% and 99.2% respectively. The satisfaction rate for malleable implants was 90.3%.
