Welcome to the Why Urology podcast with Dr. Todd Brandt.

This podcast is my personal attempt to teach you about your genito-urinary tract, what can go wrong, and how your urologist may just become your superhero.

The name of the podcast comes from my ongoing need to answer the question that I get so often from patients, friends, and family, “Why Urology? Why did you choose to become a urologist?”

In this episode I welcome back Dr Spencer Hart

Dr Hart and I go through my "Ten Questions" that I think can be applied to almost any procedure or surgery to cover the main questions a patient needs to know. We apply the ten questions to talk about an in-office treatment for BPH or the enlarged prostate called the ReZUM treatment.

The ReZum procedure utilizes small blasts of steam into the enlarged prostate to destroy the tissue to create a better channel through the enlarged prostate for improved urinary flow.

Here are the ten questions. 1. What is diagnosis? 2. Describe the procedure. 3. What are the benefits? 4. What are the risks? 5. Is this a common procedure? 6. What are the alternatives to the procedure? 7. What happens if I wait to do this procedure? 8 How do I prepare? 9. How do I recover? 10. Does insurance help cover this procedure?

This is another great conversation with Dr. Spencer Hart. I hope you enjoy it. Thank you for listening.
