Good results with low-volume doc

Postby smphead » Mon Dec 03, 2018 5:14 am

So it's over here like you're only chance to get a good procedure is going to a high-volume doc.
No-offense to those who say that, it' a well-meant advise.

But.... Not everybody has the luxury the insurance pay for a high volume docc. and have to pay it by there own (with help from family). Also not living in an erea with high-volume doc's there would also extra costs for traveling.
I'm not searching for comment's like 'then you have to save for extra money', cause i can not save another 10k + over the price.

So i want to hear from brothers who had good results with low-volume doc's and how many implants their doc's do in a year.

Does your insurance cover the procedure in germany ?

If so, go for Osmonov in Kiel, I think he does about 50 to 60 a year.

My doctor does 3 or 4 a day. He does lots of other stuff as well. He does not want advertising. He told me that he has more patients than he can handle now but there just simply not enough of them so they continue to accept patients from referrals. The only difference now is that he only accepts patients that have a referral from another urologist (who doesn't do implants). I sent him a few patients that he agreed to see, as a favour to me, from out of country. :)

The urologist over here does like 40 a year, so not that much difference.
My insurance won't cover at all.

Thanx, but i was looking for patients of low-volume doc's, with good results to get some confidence while on this board it's like low volume = bad, like 2+2=4

my surgeon does about 1 a month or 12 per year. He used a AMS 700 LGX implant. I have good results, I am 6 weeks post op and all is fine. I am willing to disscuss what I have learned. Have you contacted Jamie at boston scientific?

I would also really like to hear about others experience with low volume doctors.

I am in the UK and I think traveling outside the UK would be excessive, but from the posts on here you would think it's my only option to secure a good result.

You see, I'm extremely worried about being sized incorrectly, so I get swept away in all the "you NEED to get a world class surgeon" talk.

You need to ask point blank, what size do you expect my result to be. If they don’t satisfy your expectations, find another.
Mine said don’t get unreasonable expectations. I should have run out of his office. I didn’t and I’m not pleased.

I’m curious from Kramer, Eid patients, what did they use? The stretch test, Trimix or saline injection to determine size? My surgeon first saw my dick on the operating table, only measured after cutting me open.

No stretch test, Trimix or injections. Size was determined on the operating table with accurate measurements. No estimates. I was assured I would get maximum length and girth with the implant of MY choice. That’s one advantage of a high volume surgeon, they have all sizes available during surgery. That’s not saying there’s anything wrong with using anyone you want but ask if he has the full range of sizes available or does he have to order based on an external examination.
