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.

What's on the immediate horizon for this site....

To all:

I have "several irons in the fire" at the moment. Our "Urethral Stricture Resources" site is well underway (on my desktop). That will list specialists whose focus is urethral reconstruction, at last count, there were 23 in the United States.  "Dr. Joe", the prolific Wikipedia-Urology editor is working on a listing of  "general urological surgeons" in other locations who perform urethroplastic procedures with some regularity but are not considered as being specialists in this particular discipline.

Our statistics are on a constantly upward trend, and most of our email responses have been positive. This tells me that we're probably doing something correctly!

Best regards,

Moderator Tim
