Hint: They’re all below the belt and above the knees.
It’s not easy for men to discuss what goes on below their belts and above their knees. Urologists are able to answer any questions men have about their private parts; they’re the best ones to contact, because they specialize in that particular area of men’s health. At Advanced Urology Associates, all the urologists and physician’s assistants are Board Certified, which ensures they are very knowledgeable about such matters.
Here’s why you should check and select one who is
Anyone needing a specialized surgical procedure or cutting-edge medical care will want to be treated by a physician that has the highest level of training possible, which Board Certification provides. A general practitioner, for example, won’t be as knowledgeable in urology-related patient care as a Board Certified urologist who has received additional training and stayed current with the latest medical advances, including the most up-to-date medications, surgical equipment, and surgical techniques available.
The funds raised from the event are invested around the country to provide research for new treatments, free prostate cancer testing, and educate men and families about prostate cancer. A portion of the proceeds will also benefit the local chapter of Us TOO International Prostate Cancer Education & Support Network – meetings that Advanced Urology proudly hosts.
