KMeister, you don't seem to get psyched123's point.

He says stay away from professors and teaching hospitals because the risk of having a trainee doing the implant.
And you disagree because you say new technology is developed at teaching hospitals, and because all great surgeons once were in training themselves.
So what? None of that makes any difference to his point.
It doesn't change the fact that there is a risk getting implanted by a trainee at a teaching hospital. If you would say that a trainee is just as good as a senior, you would have at least made a counter argument. Not a good one, but a logical one. But to say all good surgeons once were trainees doesn't say shit. Would you rather be operated by Kramer of today or be his first patient as a trainee ten years ago?
And even if they develop the newest technology there, once it is commercially available it'll be available anywhere. Just that you don't have to be the trial object, neither for the the new technology nor for the trainee.

Then of course, looking at the bigger picture, if nobody have their surgery at these hospitals, no new star surgeons will rise since they never get their training. So your thought may be glorious.
On the other hand, would I give a shit about the future supply and development of implant surgeons if I was a patient? No. I would only make sure I got the best possible two hands to cut my dick up and insert those Bioflex cylinders.

You guys that have had a Titan installed how long did your surgery take? My recovery will be a week tomorrow and now that I've let some pressure out its comfortable.

My surgery lasted one hour and forty-five minutes. But the result is perfect and I have never had any problems outside of figuring out how to work the darn thing. (I got that down by now, though.)

It seems odd to me that most all of the highly rated, high volume drs are only found on either a coast line, or Texas. Anybody know a top level in the midwest?

There's the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota.
http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-cond ... n-20034244

Also, there are two companies that manufacturer the implant: Coloplast and Boston Scientific (formerly American Medical Systems or AMS). You can check out each's website to find out which doctors are in your area.

Be sure to check the box for "Erectile dysfunction."

Now click "Find a Physician," type in your city and state and you should get a list of physicians near your area. (Typing in a zip code did not work as well.) Of course, from there please proceed with extreme caution. Some may or may not take your insurance, some may or may not have a great deal of experience in performing the surgery, etc.

My assumption is that a large state like Ohio probably has several doctors who would do a great job.
