Typically, a testicular implant procedure is relatively routine and can last from 20 to 40 minutes. Because there are several different accepted surgical approaches to insert implants, your surgeon will discuss with you the method that he or she will use, and why it is the most appropriate choice for your individual case. It is important to know that implantation of a testicular prosthesis may not be a one-time procedure. Any complications from your surgery may require further procedures. The Patient Information section of the website contains a complete list of potential risks and complications. The rate of complication for this type of procedure is quite low, which is described in a summary of a clinical study of these implants. This study is described in more detail on the “Additional Information” page of this website.
While we have attempted to provide you with a comprehensive source of information regarding this type of implant and its usage, it is very important that you understand the procedure and potential risks, and discuss them with your doctor.
