4th Annual Men’s Health Update
August 24-25, 2018
The climate of American healthcare is constantly changing. However, some things are certain: Americans are aging, and there are ever increased demands for healthcare access. As a result, primary care providers are increasingly caring for urologic disease. Men are disproportionately afflicted by urologic disease, and “Men’s Health” is a growing medical arena where specialized knowledge is required. The diagnosis and management of many Men’s Health diseases have been greatly influenced by recent pharmacological, surgical and technological advances. One of the greatest challenges care providers face is staying abreast with the many dynamic changes in this field. An internationally acclaimed faculty has been assembled to provide this update, with presentations on topics such as Prostate screening and treatment, Male Voiding Dysfunction, Kidney Stones, Sexual Dysfunction, Hypogonadism diagnosis and treatment and risks and benefits of Testosterone Replacement Therapy, and Chronic Genital Pain. Additional topics include the Primary Care and the Transgender Patient, evalution of common benign scrotal lesions, and stress urinary incontinence in women. During the plenary sessions, the registrants will have the opportunity to participate in case discussions and question/answer sessions.
