My surgery was done at the Vattikuti Institute at Henry Ford in Detroit. It was Nov 1 06. I was very satisfied with the care I recieved during the whole process. After surgery I did not need any pain meds stronger than Tylenol3 which they wanted me to take for the perenium pain. They have a technique that they call the "veil of aphrodite" which really concentrates on nerve sparing. I am now only using 1 pad a day mostly for coughing or sneezing. ED is coming along pretty good with levitra and a pump. Dr. Peabody did my surgery along with 6 others that day.
Best of luck on any descision you make. Please feel free to ask any questions.
