Board-certified urologist, Dr. Jonathan Clavell, recently published an article with Science Direct presenting the effectiveness of the Proximal Extracapsular Tunneling technique. Through his research, Dr. Clavell discodoctor working on computervered that this approach is a viable technique that may help treat distal cylinder impending erosion and floppy glans syndrome, among other corporal dilation-related complications, with minimal operative time or complexity.

This technique is simple and can be safely performed by both high and low-volume surgeons. It avoids the need for additional counter incisions on the penis and, therefore, theoretically decreases the risk of infection.

Take a deeper look into his research, and learn more about proximal extracapsular tunneling, by checking out his article on Science Direct.

Why is my penis getting shorter?

A very common concern for men of all ages is: SIZE.   I often see men who come in to my office concerned about the size of their penis.  Sometimes they are originally being seen for a completely unrelated complaint, such as urinary problems secondary to an enlarged prostate (BPH) or interested in a vasectomy.  Then, all of a sudden, the question comes up:  “Hey doc, now that I am here, I wanted to ask you about one more thing.

Five Most Common Complications Associated to BPH

How an Enlarged Prostate can affect your overall health

Benign prostatic hyperplasia, also known as BPH, is a prevalent condition that affects approximately 50% of men over 50 years old and up to 90% of men after the age of 85.  Many men with BPH have bothersome symptoms. Others, simply do not have bothersome symptoms, either because of lack of awareness or simply they just get used to them.  Every week I meet men in my office to whom I ask “How is your urination?”  and their response is “Normal for my age, I guess”.  Then, when I keep inquiring they have a wide array of issues and that is why I will focus today on BPH complications.
