I do general urology with a special interest in impotence, incontinence — treat them both medically and surgically. I do also kidney surgery, stone surgery, cancer of the prostate.
Urinary incontinence, there are surgical treatments now which are state of the art, which make somebody — they’re unable to move around socially, and once you’ve made them continent using the devices, make their life much more comfortable.
The important thing is to relieve the patient of their problem and their anxiety. And once you achieve that — and the gratification you see when the patients come and tell you where they were and where they are now after the treatment — that’s one of the most gratifying for a doctor.
