Issues with Dr. Elist Implant or Dr Elist Negative Reviews

With well over 1000+ successful procedures completed, Dr. James Elist has fine-tuned the Penuva subcutaneous soft silicone penile implant procedure to the point of a near 2% infection rate. This rivals most other cosmetic surgical procedures such as breast implant augmentation surgery. However, throughout his 30+ year illustrious career as an esteemed urologist and physician, on occasion he has encountered one of, if not the most, the largest obstacle to patient wellness. That obstacle is the patients themselves.

Following the Dr Elist's Post Op Directions

While it is imperative to choose an appropriate and qualified physician to consult regarding your health, equally is it as important for the patient to follow through recommendations and prescriptions made by the physician. While following the doctor’s orders may seem like the obvious course of action after your doctor’s visit, in a recent poll only about half of all patients follow their doctor’s directions which includes medication prescriptions. The effects of this, also known as “non-compliance,” means that it may alter and prohibit a successful treatment, and in some cases can even prove to be deadly. Certain medications or treatments prescribed depend on strict directions and orders and if not followed may not be as effective. However, it is not just medications which patient’s may have difficulty following. Lifestyle modifications and/or recommendations are also often overlooked by patients and can have equally as detrimental of an effect as not adhering to medication orders.

Necessity of Pre-Op and Post-Op Directions

Many surgical procedures have strict pre- as well as post-operative restrictions and orders which are necessary both for the safety of the patient as well as for achieving the best possible outcome. Such orders can anywhere from smoking cessation (which can compromise blood flow and healing), to activity restrictions like exercise limitations, or even certain food restrictions.

Following Dr. Elist’s 510(K) cleared by FDA Penuva subcutaneous soft silicone penile implant procedure, each patient is carefully educated and instructed on post operative protocol and the reasoning behind it. Questions are encouraged to help create an open dialogue between the patient and doctor so that if any concerns arise in the future, the patient will feel comfortable enough to discuss them. However, it is when patients do not follow or modify Dr. Elist’s instructions, do they go against medical advise, which in itself brings forth the risk of complications which is associated with the 2% complication rate. Amongst patients that are able to adhere to Dr. Elist’s pre- as well as post-surgical protocol, prescription and recommendations, the success rate has been found to be approximately 98%. If you or someone you know is considering the Elist Penuva subcutaneous soft silicone penile implant procedure and have questions about pre- and post-surgical protocol and recommendations, please feel free to contact Dr. Elist’s office to schedule a no-cost consultation.
