Ken Berger, JD, MD: President of the Washington State Urology Society,  Practicing Urologist, Tri-State Health, Clarkson, WA, Chair of American Urological Association’s Leadership and Business Education Committee.

During This Episode, We Discuss:

The Evaluation and Management of Chronic Pelvic, Prostatic, Testicular, and Penile Pain.

 Management of the abnormal voiding ( the non-relaxing voider ), improving post-operative stress urinary incontinence, and appropriate technique for strain-free bowel evacuation.

Chronic Prostatitis is now called Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome (CPPS): This is an effort to change the thinking that all chronic prostatitis is infection oriented. Many times CPPS patients respond very nicely to pelvic floor PT

Quotes (Tweetables):

Referring to the steps in evaluating testis pain….” If I do all of that and I don’t find anything, that becomes a much more difficult problem for me as a Urologist to treat. That is when I start thinking about sending ( the patient ) to Physical Therapy.
