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 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.
