Dr. Uzoma Anele Recognized as Center of Excellence for the AMS 700™ Inflatable Penile Prosthesis for Erectile Dysfunction

LOUISVILLE, Ky. —  UofL Physicians – Urology has announced that Uzoma Anele, M.D., has been designated as a Center of Excellence for the AMS 700™ Inflatable Penile Prosthesis (IPP)—a long-term treatment option for patients with erectile dysfunction (ED).

ED is a common condition that is estimated to affect more than half of men between 40 and 70 years old to some degree. ED can be brought on by a number of physical or psychological causes, which result in the inability to get and keep an erection firm enough for sex. This can limit intimacy, affect self-esteem and impact relationships. The AMS 700, manufactured by Boston Scientific, is designed to deliver a natural look and feel and can help patients resume sexual intimacy with their partners.

The Center of Excellence designation recognizes achievement of program requirements, including experience with implanting the AMS 700 and commitment to continuously educating patients and the community about ED and available treatment options.​

“Being designated as an AMS 700 Center of Excellence is an important recognition for us and further supports our efforts to deliver treatment options for ED patients in the Kentuckiana region,” said Dr. Anele. “Patients often wonder how the implant will affect their sex life. The AMS 700 is a unique solution that allows patients to be spontaneous again and is reliable with no medication side effects or ongoing costs. In one study evaluating the AMS 700, 95% of patients and 90% of partners reported satisfaction with sexual intercourse.”

The AMS 700 is designed for ease of use and a natural look and feel. It is currently used in urology practices throughout the U.S. and around the world. To date, more than 500,000 AMS 700 IPPs have been implanted worldwide.
