Welcome to the Urethral Stricture Support blog. These pages are intended to assist those with questions regarding the disease, expected outcomes, resources, and emotional and informational support. AT NO TIME WILL MEDICAL ADVICE OF ANY KIND BE RENDERED. With your permission, your commentary may be included within the topics discussed within this forum. Moderators Cesar and Tim have a combined 50 years (celebrating a half-century of difficult urination) of experience in living with, dealing with, and overcoming what is broadly considered a disease with a high rate of morbidity. We have experienced every common surgical and instrumental "fix"/"repair" offered including the implantation of the Urolume Endoprosthesis. Both moderators have experience with the Urolume Endoprosthesis. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first and only such support group anywhere. Please, do not be afraid or embarrassed to ask any question with regards to your diagnosis. We encourage you to discuss any and all information offered within this blog with your Urologist. A proactive and informed patient usually receives the best care.

With your help, and well-considered posts, the information gleaned from this site should help the countless scores of males aged 18 and over who are encountering the diagnosis of "Urethral Stricture".

Frontiers in Reconstructive Urology, Europe - COMING SOON!

Hello to all!!

Most of our information on this site has been centered on North America, Central and South America, and the United Kingdom (we wish you a successful, and most importantly,  SAFE Olympics). Many of our readers hail from Mainland Europe (especially Spain) and eastern Africa. We do have some information about urologists in central and southern Europe, and eastern Africa which we will endeavor to publish as soon as it can be verified as accurate.  We really appreciate your stopping by, and in the meantime, should you have any questions, please feel free to contact us via the email address listed at the top of the page.

UPDATE; 02 August 2012:

I am putting the finishing touches on an article about Dr. Enzo Palminteri, M.D., who has offices in Arezzo, Milan, Verona, Rome, Naples, Palermo, Repubblica Italiana (Italy for those of us who reside west of the Prime Meridian). In the opinion of most reconstructive urologists, he would be considered to be among the world's top three urethral surgeons, having pioneered many unique procedures.

I had the pleasure of corresponding with him in 1998, after encountering problems with the Urolume Endoprosthesis implanted a few years prior. I won't elaborate further, except to say that his predictions were more than accurate. 

BTW: Moderator César is going to resume his task of translating this site for our Español mirror site.
