Erectile dysfunction, a taboo topic among many African men, has finally gotten a permanent solution as Kenyan doctors successful performed a penile surgery on a man battling impotence.
The man in his 40s was battling impotence for years and had opted for other treatments without success.
In this case, Dr Ahmed Yousef, a consultant urologist and the lead surgeon, told the Nation that the procedure involved implanting a prosthesis device in the penis and took about an hour to finish.
“The advantage of this surgery is that the man can have intercourse anytime they like without using medication.
“The man can now have sex with a woman whenever he wants as long as he wants in any style he wants wherever he wants, and the success rate is 95-97 per cent,” said Dr. Yousef.
He also added that the procedure would help treat any issues of premature ejaculation, adding that the costs are between Sh16 to Sh20 million.
About 15 -20% of Kenyan men are said to suffer from erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation, and many suffer in silence, fearing to be judged.
The Aga Khan University Hospital is the first in the East African region to perform a penile surgery successfully.
