What is the current state -of-the-art for ED. My local

Customer Question
What is the current state...
What is the current state -of-the-art for ED. My local Urologist has recently retired. He had treated me 3 years ago with steroids Viagra and Cialis; penile injections of extra strength triple mix hd titrate. I did not get much results from his protocol. He said I might have a circulatory problem, and an implant was the only alternative 2 years ago. I'm 72 old and otherwise in good health.

Penile implants are the current state of the art for patients who do not respond to oral medications or injections. These devices have come along way since the 1980s. They were highly resistant to infection and 90 to 95% of patients are extremely satisfied with the devices. If you are healthy enough to have surgery, you should strongly consider having surgery to have one of these implants placed to restore your sex life. Hope this helps and let me know if you have questions

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
