Overactive Bladder Dysfunction or OAB refers to the lady who has frequency, urgency, perhaps urge incontinence and getting up at night.

Now, we talk about OAB wet and OAB dry. Some ladies have frequency urgency but don’t wet themselves. We help those ladies with bladder retraining schedules and with certain new drugs that are highly effective.

Women with OAB wet, meaning urge incontinence, can also be made continent with medication but particularly with BOTOX injection therapy. These are problems we can treat.

These are ladies we can help. And it’s great to see the restoration of confidence in these women who go back to tennis, who go back to Pilates in the gym because they no longer have to wear nappies.

A man with erectile dysfunction has lost confidence in his ability to penetrate his partner and to maintain that ability until orgasm.

Some men have a psychological cause for their erectile dysfunction. The loss of a wife, the lack of sexual confidence, depression, anxiety.

But the majority of men we see, especially in the 45-plus age group, have organic erectile dysfunction. They’ve been smoking, they’ve been diabetic, they’ve had cancer surgery.

These men have a physical problem and they need definitive help. Now, a lot of men respond to Viagra or Cialis, very effective tablets, but not all do.

These men we counsel with respect to the use of penile injection therapy or the highly-effective penile prosthetic surgery. Penile prosthetic surgery is the gold standard means of restoring confident sexual ability.

Men can have sex when they want and for as long as they want and, of course, from the ladies’ point of view, there’s no frustration, there’s no failure. So it meets with a very high level of patient and partner satisfaction.

In short, it fixes the problem and lets the couple get on with their life together.

Not all men are suited to keyhole robotic surgery. Some men, for example, who have had major intra-abdominal surgery, for example, colon surgery, have a lot of abdominal adhesions. And it may not be safe to do this surgery with keyhole or robotic surgery.

In those men, I offer open radical prostatectomy, which is a highly effective operation that can also preserve bladder and sexual function.

With experience, the surgeon knows who is best suited to which surgical approach. I’ve been doing radical prostatectomies of one form or another for over 30 years. That gives me good judgment and the confidence to properly advise patients as individuals.

When prostate cancer is detected early these days we cure it with a very modern, minimally evasive form of surgery known as robot-assisted radical prostatectomy.

We make seven little one-centimeter incisions into the abdomen. We inflate the abdomen with gas, we put a very powerful, miniaturized television camera inside, we hook up the instruments to a robotic arm and I as the surgeon sit at a very sophisticated console, operate that robotic equipment, remove the prostate and put the patient back together again.

That’s highly effective at curing prostate cancer. It gives us a very good chance to preserve bladder and sexual function and the patients generally go home 48 hours later.

Recovery is quick and it is minimally painful. In fact, the patient’s up and walking around the next day. It is a major cancer operation and a very careful discussion is always had with respect to the appropriateness of the operation and the risks and benefits involved.

What are the Long Term Effects of a Vasectomy?

[Video] What are the Long Term Effects of a Vasectomy?

According to numerous international studies and research, there are no long-term negative side effects of having a vasectomy.

Often Dr Katelaris comes across this concern from his patients. There has been decades of international studies on this concern, and to date there is no association of a vasectomy increasing a mans risk of prostate cancer.

In this short video the doctor addresses this concern and explains how that is not an issue and that is why at Katelaris Urology they are performing more vasectomies than ever before.
