About this book


Urological Men’s Health: A Guide for Urologists and Primary Care Physicians covers the major urologic conditions that have an impact on the health and well being of the adult male. It opens with an overview of general men's preventative health, as practiced by a world leading Executive Health center. The volume covers the major genitourinary malignancies and addresses the latest controversies in screening and treatment selection. This is followed by coverage of the conditions that don't shorten life but have major impact on quality of life and health care expenditure: BPH, urinary incontinence, infertility, urethral strictures, erectile dysfunction, urinary tract infections and chronic pelvic pain. Also included are chapters on herbal and complementary therapy, psychological and spousal support in urologic illness and the links between genitourinary disease and general vascular endothelial dysfunction. Urological Men’s Health: A Guide for Urologists and Primary Care Physicians will be of great value to Urologists, Internists, General Practitioners and the residents and fellows who train within these specialties.

From the reviews:

“Men’s health is a relatively recent topic strongly related to urology. … Editor Shoskes and more than 30 co-authors aimed to write a textbook covering the bothersome aspects of urological conditions and their consequences on men’s health. … This textbook provides the reader with an original and useful approach to men’s health and will be of interest to many physicians, whether they are urologists or general practitioners.” (European Urology Today, March/May, 2013)

“This book touches on the most common conditions for which men seek urological care, providing an overview and in-depth review of timely topics. … It is written for primary care practitioners as well as urologists, in recognition of the fact that men often seek medical care from their urologist as well as their primary care provider. … an excellent overview for all readers interested in men’s health. As there are few contemporary books in this rapidly expanding field, it will become a valuable reference.” (Perry R. Weiner, Doody’s Review Service, September, 2012)
