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

In this episode, Dr. Mikhail Regelman and I continue a conversation about how we manage issues of incontinence and impotence after man has had his prostate removed for prostate cancer.

In our last episode we focused on postoperative incontinence. In this episode we discuss the protocol called the SIMS (Surgical Impotence Management Strategy) protocol for helping men restore sexual function after their operation.

In this episode we cover a broad range of topics including: what is a nerve sparing approach to a prostatectomy and why it matters for sexual function after the operation, what specifically is our SIMS protocol, how to use vacuum erection devices or injection treatments for sexual activity after an operation, what to expect as far as recovery of sexual function after the operation and Dr. Regelman tells us why we should think of our penis as a sports car.

 Here’s my conversation with Dr. Regelman.
