Urology of St. Louis Educates Men to Take Control of Their Urologic Care During Men’s Health Month

St. Louis, MO (June 12, 2023) June is Men’s Health Month and Urology of St. Louis (USL), the largest private urologic practice in St. Louis and the Metro East, is encouraging men to stay on top of their urologic health. Studies from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) show that women are 40% more likely to go on routine doctor visits compared to men. USL is aiming to change this statistic by encouraging men to see a urologist and be more proactive about their health.

“At USL, we go beyond what a typical men’s health clinic can offer because our goal is to provide patients with the most comprehensive care options,” said Dr. Etai Goldenberg.  “We also want to help them feel comfortable talking about uncomfortable topics. For instance, erectile dysfunction is a common condition half of men over 40 face and we take pride in being a resource to discuss affordable treatments, procedures and medications.”

Dr. Goldenberg, who is fellowship trained in Men’s Health, said in the past year he has seen an increase in male patients getting a vasectomy. He said in the past 6 months alone, he has performed more vasectomies than he typically does within a year.

“We’ve seen a massive increase in men aiming to take accountability for their urologic health and being curious about their own options,” said Dr. Goldenberg. “Men’s Health can also impact a family’s goals and plans for having children. At USL, we can provide at-home mail-in fertility testing kits to ensure the success of their vasectomies. It is an easy, convenient way for men to do this in the privacy of their own home instead of at one of our offices.”

USL also offers male-factor fertility services for families trying to conceive. They offer step-by-step testing alongside a urologist as well as at-home mail-in semen testing.

USL offers treatment for a wide range of urological conditions including prostate cancer, penile curvature, pelvic organ prolapse, incontinence, sexual health, benign prostatic hyperplasia, kidney stones, kidney cancer, vasectomies and erectile dysfunction.
