Internationally-known surgeon
Dr. Garber has developed special expertise in the medical and surgical treatment of male impotence. Dr. Garber's professional and personal dedication to the treatment of impotence led him to start The Philadelphia Impotence Foundation. He is internationally recognized for his work with penile implants, and has over 25 years of experience. His reputation as an expert surgeon has brought Urologists from throughout the United States to Philadelphia for training in penile implant techniques, and prompted Mentor Corporation to film Dr. Garber's techniques for worldwide distribution. Most recently, the distinguished journal Expert Review of Medical Devices asked Dr. Garber to write a review of inflatable penile implants, which was published in 2005, and updated in May of 2008. If you read these articles, you will become very knowledgable about penile implants.

In addition, after successfully completing more than 2000 inflatable penile implant procedures, Dr. Garber received an award from Coloplast Corporation. There are very few Urologists anywhere in the world that can offer this degree of experience to their patients. Dr. Garber is currently one of the top 5 penile implant surgeons in the United States.

Dr. Garber uses careful and meticulous surgical techniques, to obtain the best (and largest!) possible result for each of his patients. He analyzes each patient's medical and surgical history, and tries to pick the optimal approach, technique, and implant. One size or technique does not fit all! He is familiar with all implantation techniques, including transverse or vertical infrapubic (above the penis) approaches, and the transverse or vertical scrotal approaches, with or without a counter-incision. He has all of the currently manufactured implants (including malleable rods, positionable rods, 2-and 3-component inflatable implants) available in all sizes, and will select the optimal implant for your particular situation after reviewing the various implants with you. He also uses a rigorous and extensive protocol to prevent infection. This protocol includes intravenous and oral antibiotics, extensive skin preparation, and antibiotic soaked or coated implants. Dr. Garber's current rate of infection for first-time penile implant insertion is less than 1%. His goal is to customize each procedure for each patient, to achieve the optimal result. Correction of penile curvature can be carried out once the implant has been completely installed.
Dr. Garber is not a very fast surgeon; he is a careful, meticulous and safe surgeon, with an unparalleled safety record. In over 2000 implant procedures, none(0) of Dr. Garber's penile implant reservoir insertions have caused injury to the bowel, bladder, or major blood vessels. Few if any other penile implant surgeons can report this level of safety!
Dr. Garber also handles a large number of difficult cases referred to him by other Urologists, including patients with previous implant infection, malfunction, multiple prior implant surgeries, hernias, cylinder erosion, penile curvature or asymmetry, priapism, corporal fibrosis, unsatisfactory or difficult-to-operate implants, and morbid obesity. A large portion of his practice includes men who are diabetic, or have had a radical prostatectomy for prostate cancer. Dr. Garber's youngest patient was 20 years old; he developed impotence due to a penile injury. His oldest implant patient was 93!
Dr. Garber has pioneered the use of the new Coloplast Titan implant with One Touch Release (OTR)Pump. He has presented his initial data at the American Urological Association Meeting in 2009, and has published a larger series in 2011.

Click here to see Dr. Garber's article, published in January 2011, reviewing the first 100 patients who received an OTR pump.
Dr. Garber was also one of the first to use the new Coloplast cylinders with soft silicon tips and zero-degree tubing.
