A penile implant procedure on a man suffering from erectile dysfunction in Kenya has been carried out by a leading private hospital in the capital, Nairobi.
According to the Aga Khan University Hospital, this was the first time such an operation had been carried out in East and central Africa.
The procedure that involves implanting a prosthesis device in the penis was carried out on a 44-year-old man who had been suffering from erectile dysfunction for a number of years.
“The advantage of this surgery is that the man can have intercourse anytime they like without using a medication,” the lead surgeon, Dr. Ahmed Yousef, said.
The procedure was a short one done around an hour, Dr. Yousef said.
