Life doesn’t end with erectile dysfunction (ED).

Consider the life-changing possibilities of a penile implant.

More than 300,000 men have returned to an active sex life with
penile implants.1

In a study of 200 patients and 120 partners, 92% of patients and 96% of their partners reported sexual activity with the AMS 700™ Inflatable Penile Implant to be excellent or satisfactory.2

The patient and partner testimonials throughout this website recount the experiences of people who are using American Medical Systems, Inc. (AMS) therapies related to ED. AMS invited these people to share their stories candidly. As you review them, please bear in mind that the experiences are specific to those particular people. As with all medical treatment, not every response is the same. We recommend that you talk to your doctor about what treatment is right for you.
