What procedures does Dr. Paul Perito offer?
Perito Urology was the first urology office to offer Dr. Paul Perito’s unrivaled approach to the surgery. His technique utilizes a small incision the size of a quarter above the penis to insert the implant. The procedure is safe and efficacious and offers most patients a return to normal sexual behavior between four and six weeks. Dr. Paul Perito also offers testicular implants, urinary incontinence surgery, and Peyronie’s Disease treatment.
Many physicians employ a Foley catheter during the procedure. Why has Dr. Paul Perito chosen not to do so?
In a study ending in 2010, six surgeons independently determined that a Foley catheter was not necessary during an IPP (inflatable penile prosthesis) procedure. Including in the study were Dr. Paul Perito’s results on 529 patients, along with 291 patients from a different physician using a different incision method. Dr. Paul Perito’s belief has always been that the fewer foreign bodies introduced to the body, the easier the surgery is on the patient. The study concluded that surgeons experienced in IPP procedures who did not use a Foley catheter have a low incidence of infection. There were no bladder or urethral injuries encountered in the study, regardless of incision method.
What forms of anesthesia does Dr. Perito favor?
Local anesthesia, specifically an injectable Marcaine and lidocaine solution, is Dr. Paul Perito’s preferred method analgesia during the procedure. His belief is that spinal anesthesia and general anesthesia have potential dangers that could be catastrophic to the patient. Local anesthesia avoids these hazards completely.
