With the peyronies added to your troubles it looks like the implant is needed. I am no one to tell you how they work and tout them as I just was implanted a little over a week ago, so I am in the healing phase. There a group of men here on this site that have had theirs for a while and the all seemed to say the same thiing, don't wait. At the advice of some of these people, I found my way to the Frank Talk site and message board which is devoted to mens sexual and ED issues. FrankTalk.org. You might want to visit that site and ask the members about locating a doctor in your area. Also there is a Yahoo.com group that deals just with Penile Implants. That site was a little hard for me to find and then joining requires a yahoo user name but probaly worth the effort, especially with the doctor information you are looking for. There are doctors that seem to do nothing but implants like the often discussed Dr. Milam at Vanderbuilt. These big time implant doctors certainly have a lot of experience and there is some confidence from that, I guess. I had my IPP done as part of the operation where I got an AUS, so I had to choose a doctor that worked with my lead surgeon, the AUS doctor. I am very happy with that choice so far and my surgery was done at Methodist in the Texas Medical Complex, Houston. Traveling for this operation is what many do. Anyway, I hope you have some sucess in finding a doctor that fits your needs.

ps, I just looked on the Yahoo site and a member mentioned Dr. Grossman in denver and he said he was very happy with his work. Perhaps you could join that site and contact that member or post here asking about Dr. Grossman? Hmmm.,grossman that might be the ticket.

S Mark,
 
I can't really recommend them (or not), as I have not had an implant.  But, I have sat through presenations given by the Urology Clinic of Colorado.  They did "seem" to have experienced implant surgeons.  If nothing else, they may be a good first contact for getting information.  Sorry I could not be of more help.

Can you tell me whether or not your Peyronies is caused by using a pump or injections- or do you even know the cause?

mjluke, not sure of the cause.  I immediately notice curvature with the first injection but it did seem to get worse with subsequent injections.

Hey Mark:
 
Thanks for your response. I also have experienced this penis curvature which I assume is this Peyronies although I have not as yet seen my doctor about it. I have discontinued the pump and injections- I do ok with the cialis but the subsequent back pain is a nuisance.
 
In any event it may be the least of my worries as I have recently had a significant rise in PSA- hopefully it is what is referred to as A PSA "bounce" which I understand happens with many brachytherapy patients. I will start another post to get some feedback on that issue.
 
63 years old-tumor discovered on digital exam- biopsy December 2008-
4 of 12 samples positive-all on right side
Gleason 3+3=6
PSA-3
Otherwise excellent health.
Brachytherapy- May 19, 2009 -so far, so good.
