    I guess it would depend on why he was being seen. If it's just a follow up you might try the v67.59 codes, or if just a status maybe the v45.89. I don't think there is one specifically for penile prosthesis. If it's a complication code, then you would go to the 996xx codes. Does this help at all?

    As its a other organ replaced by prosthesis it would code out to V43.89...
    Hope this helps... please let me know If I am wrong...
