I am trying to make a short list from Doctors across the country who have a depth of experience and skill to implant the AMS 700 or Colorplast Titan. I live in the south and will not use the firm that did the robotic prostate removal. So, who is the most successful surgeon for implant surgery?

My surgeon was M. Manoharan with the Univ. of Miami Miller school of health at 305-243-1973. He did a very successful Di Vinci robotic prostate removal for me, successfully sparing the nerves and I had a minimal PSA of >0.1 after three months. I am not sure whether that disqualifies him in terms of your question, as I don't know whether they also do penile implants through robotic surgery or by standard surgery.
He has mentioned several times that he also does penile implants although I am not ready for that alternative yet, and has done hundreds of prostate operations.
There is also a Dr. Hakim at the Cleveland Clinic Hospital in Weston, Florida, who also has lots of experience with penile implants.

That list should include Dr. Douglas F. Milam in the Urologic Surgery Department at the Vanderbilt Medical Center in Nashville, TN. He did mine in May of 2005. Everything is fine. It still works. The AMS 700 is the same model I have. I would highly recommend him.

Hey Mark

I have heard from another guy that Dr Milam is a good implant doc.
Did you happen to lose any length with the implant?
If you could write me a email that would be great. I have been having impotence for 8 years ever since I was a teen and now i am 25. I have tried pills, shots, etc and nothing works. If you could send me a email at ptowncp84@yahoo.com
