At Keck Medicine, 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 also has expertise in treating Peyronie’s disease and offers all treatment options, including collagenase clostridium histolyticum and surgical reconstruction.
Male Urinary Incontinence
Male urinary incontinence is underdiagnosed. 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, and we continue to be at the forefront of developing new techniques to improve continence outcomes. We have unmatched expertise in primary placement and revision surgery, and we are a major referral center for patients who have failed treatment at other institutions.
Our surgeons specialize in urethral reconstruction to address urethral strictures and recurrent bladder neck contractures that arise after trauma, surgery for prostate cancer or pelvic radiation, 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, flap surgery and the urethral pull through urethroplasty.
Total Urinary Tract Reconstruction and Urinary Diversion
For patients that require urinary diversion, 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 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.
