I am Dr. Todd Brandt. I am a urologist. 

These are words I couldn't have imagined myself saying as I was growing up thinking about medicine as a career. 

And I have been asked many, many times why I went into urology as a medical specialty. In this podcast I attempt to explain how I got here. Why did I choose urology as a specialty? Why do I like it? Why, if you are someone with a urinary tract, should you care? Get it? Why Urology.

This podcast is a personal experiment in medical audio content. I make the obvious disclaimer that this is not medical advice. You should be going to your own physician for that.

These episodes are meant to educate, entertain, inspire or inform you in some way with urology as the launching point for each episode. Each episode is varied in format and length as I have experimented with content. 

Listen, follow, share, rate, review, repeat...you know what to do.

If you have kidney stones, or prostate cancer, or another urologic health concern this podcast may help you.

If you have a loved one with any urologic health concern this podcast may help you. 

If you are someone who has asked, "How does my bladder do it's thing?", this podcast may help you.

If you make urine, or even if you don't, this podcast may help you.

Thank you for listening to this podcast. I do appreciated any feedback I get so please reach out to me at the link provided on this website. 

Be well,

Dr. Todd Brandt

I want to start this episode with a quote from Robert Hooke, a British natural philosopher, architect and polymath who lived and worked during the years 1635 to 1703. Hooke’s personal story as a hardworking and honest, but ultimately irascible and enigmatic character is one I will save for another time but as I was...

In this episode I sit down to a fun conversation with one of my partners, Dr. Dean Tortorelis. We discussed Dr. Tortorelis' path in to Urology, why he is passionate about Men's Health, and, of course, the Urolift procedure for treatment of BPH.

We had a lot of fun making this episode.  I hope you enjoy it.
