AMS Ambicor™ Penile Implant

The AMS Ambicor™ Inflatable Penile Implant is contained entirely in the body and was designed for ease of use.
This implant puts you back in control of your erectile function.

How it works

The AMS Ambicor Inflatable Penile Implant is a fluid-filled device that includes a pair of cylinders implanted in the penis and a single pump located in the scrotum. Squeezing and releasing the pump moves fluid to the cylinders, creating a rigid erection. Deflate by bending the cylinders at the base of the penis.

About the procedure

The implant procedure is usually done on an outpatient basis. A small incision is made in the scrotum or above the pubic bone and a surgeon inserts all components through this opening. The surgery is performed under anesthesia.

You may experience pain and soreness at the surgical site. Typically, it takes a few days to return to your regular routine of light activity. The full healing time before using your implant is usually about 6 weeks.


As with any medical procedure, complications can occur. Side effects include, but are not limited to:2 natural or spontaneous erections as well as other interventional treatment for ED options will no longer be possible; infection, in which case the implant may have to be removed; pain (typically associated with the healing process); mechanical failure of the implant.
