Advanced Urology Associates Explains the Importance of Board Certification
If you have a medical issue or need a surgical procedure, you want to find a doctor with the highest level of training and specialization possible. To practice medicine in the U.S., doctors are required to have a medical license; however, that license doesn’t indicate a doctor’s qualifications for practicing within an area of specialty, such as Dermatology or Urology. If a doctor is Board Certified, it means that he or she has received additional training, and participates in activities that ensure they are current with the latest advances in medical and patient care.
Maintaining Board Certification requires a doctor to demonstrate to their specialty Board that they’ve kept up with the latest medical advances in their field of specialization. These focused assessments and improvement activities allow doctors to continue to improve the safety and efficiency of their practices. This program allows the public to trust that their Board Certified physician is an expert in their field.
At Advanced Urology Associates, all nine urologists are Board Certified. Not all vasectomy clinics require Board Certification. At AUA, Board Certified urologists specialize in male genital anatomy and fertility; patients receive the highest quality care and benefit from up-to-date advancements in procedures like the no-scalpel vasectomy.
The no-scalpel vasectomy is an innovative procedure that involves special numbing techniques and one small opening (created without a scalpel). This advanced procedure is very gentle and doesn’t require stitches. It takes only 20-30 minutes, and is performed in the urologist’s private office. Both the procedure and the recovery time are faster than with the conventional method. With over 125 years of combined experience, AUA’s Board Certified urologists have performed upwards of 10,000 successful vasectomies.
