Our physicians are experts in male urology, reconstruction and sexual health; they are also leaders in treating urethral and prostatic disease, male urinary incontinence and erectile dysfunction. They place emphasis on personalized, compassionate care and patient education.

Erectile Dysfunction

Our urologists treat erectile dysfunction comprehensively by exploring medical options that can have positive results for patients. Though, some patients may ultimately choose surgery. At Keck Medicine of USC, our physicians have performed more penile prosthesis placements than any other institution in the western United States. Many patients who have not had successful treatment at other institutions are referred to our specialists. Our team has expertise in treating Peyronie’s Disease both medically and surgically.

Male Urinary Incontinence

Patients are referred to us after suffering for years with bothersome urinary incontinence that has significantly impaired their quality of life. We offer patients a variety of treatment options that can restore a patient’s continence. Our institution has performed more artificial urinary sphincter placements than any other institution. We have expertise in primary placement, revision surgery, and we are a major referral center for patients who have failed treatment at other institutions.

Urethral Reconstruction

Our surgeons specialize in urethral reconstruction to address urethral strictures and recurrent bladder neck contractures, often with unique repairs developed or refined by our surgeons. We are able to offer patients a variety of techniques including endoscopic repair, primary anastomosis, two-stage repair, and the urethral pull through urethroplasty.

Total Urinary Tract Reconstruction and Urinary Diversion

For patients that require urinary diversion either due to genitourinary cancer, radiation-cystitis, or pelvic trauma, we have extensive experience in all forms of urinary tract reconstruction and patients are offered all forms of urinary diversion. Keck Medicine of USC was one of the first institutions in the world to offer orthotopic neobladder reconstruction in men, and the first to offer such reconstruction in women.

Keck Medicine of USC is the University of Southern California’s medical enterprise, one of only two university-owned academic medical centers in the Los Angeles area.
