SUPS has been hosting cadaver labs on annual SMSNA meetings to train urology residents and fellows who are interested in prosthetic urology. In this session, Dr. Park talked about inflatable penile prosthesis, especially newly introduced Rigicon penile implants.
After the meeting, Dr. Park commented, “For the last 10 years, Korea has had the world’s second largest number of inflatable penile implant surgeries after the United States yet we didn’t pay our attention to training nor education of the younger generations. I believe it’s time to do something about it. I will continue academic activities, including training, in hopes of South Korea becoming a penile implant training location someday.”
