Non routine penile implant op?

User

After prostate removal by robotic section, nerve saving did not help me maintain good erections.


All treatments including injections have failed.


After research I approached the Urology team regardingan implant only to be told they were not routinely supplied and would have to ‘make a case’!


This after researching and the conclusion that even the NHS suggested that Centres of Excellence were required because higher rates of operations resulted in higher success and less complication rates. 
So not a lightly taken decision.


So my question is how many people have come across this matter and how did they get their approval?


Absolutely any assistance would be appreciated.


Michael.
