Dr. Evans AMS 700.

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.​
