The field of genitourinary prosthetics has evolved rapidly to become the standard of care for conditions such as incontinence and refractory erectile dysfunction. Its scope has expanded to encompass newer indications such as Peyronie's disease and gender-affirming surgeries. This review, based on the Urological Society of India's Best Essay Award 2022, aims to elaborate on the advances in the field of urological prosthetics in the past 20 years as well as to provide an insight into ongoing research and what one can expect to see in the next decade, particularly in the area of penile and testicular prosthetics as well as treatment of incontinence. A PubMed and patent search was performed to achieve these objectives. Future considerations include improving acceptance, reliability, making them more accessible for developing countries and improving training and education to improve outcomes.
