This Penile Rehabilitation Program can take up to a year, with therapy being initiated prior to your surgery. In order to better understand your pre-operative erectile function, we will be using objective and subjective measurements. Objective measurements will include an ultrasound of the penis, which is a test to assess anatomy (length, curvature), blood flow and record baseline function. Subjectively, you and your female partner (if applicable) will be asked to complete several questionnaires assessing sexual function. Understanding, and possibly treating, your female partner’s current sexual function can have a significant impact on your recovery of erectile function. A few blood tests, including testosterone levels, will also be taken. After surgery, these same tests and procedures will be performed in order to assess your progress and overall erectile function.
