Fear of Urethroplasty Unfounded
Mr. C. M. suffered a straddle injury and was managed for 30 years with painful dilations and self dilation. When, after years of suffering, he was advised to consider surgery at the Center for Reconstructive Urology, he believed that surgery was drastic and continued with dilations until he simply could not be managed this way further. He then came to our Center where he underwent a successful surgery. Many patients falsely believe open urethroplasty is a drastic painful procedure, but as Mr. C. M. explains, having the surgery is the best decision he ever made and he now urinates normally.
