    Sexopatgologists are normally in charge of operating on patients to
    correct sexual disorders. Doctors in this field most often treat men
    who are having erectile dysfunctions.
    Penile implant, otherwise known as penile prosthesis, is one of the
    most recommended treatments for persons suffering from erectile
    dysfunction.
    A surgery to correct this sexual disorder requires that a medical
    device is implanted within the corpora cavernosa of the penis.

    Speaking after becoming the first ever Ghanaian to successfully
    perform a penile implant surgery, an elated Dr Amanamah described the
    achievement as"a dream come true, that Ghanaians can now access this
    treatment in Ghana."
    He added that the public must start to take erectile dysfunction more
    seriously, while also urging patients to seek for professional help if
    such a disorder is noticed, rather than just trying out counter drugs.
    Experts say erectile dysfunction normally affects men between the ages
    of 40 – 70 years.

    Dr Amanamah who led the four-member team of doctors performed the
    penile implant surgery in collaboration with the Peace and Love
    Hospital and the Derry Court Medical Practice.
