Welcome to the Why Urology Podcast.
This is episode number 101, an interview with Dr. Alex Tatem about shock wave therapy (SWT) for treating men with erectile dysfunction.
Shock wave therapy is a developing technology within the field of urology, a technology not universally endorsed, encouraged, or employed in urologic practices today.
Dr Tatem is a urologist in Indianapolis Indiana specializing in men’s health with a special knowledge about using shock wave treatment who uses it within his own practice.
Dr Tatem is also content creator, posting videos on YouTube and Vidscrip for patient education.
Whenever I want to see what I should be doing on YouTube, I take a peek at Dr. Tatem’s videos. I was doing this recently and I came across his video on using shock wave therapy for erectile dysfunction. I was immediately interested because this is a controversial technology within the field of urology and I was interested to see what Dr. Tatem had to say.
I was impressed, not only with the quality of video, but with the depth and honesty of his presentation.
If you are a man with erectile dysfunction considering shock wave treatment, I would encourage you to listen to this podcast or watch his video. You will not only learn about shock wave treatments for erectile dysfunction but you will hear or see how a young, innovative physician employs a new, maybe unproven technology in his practice with the highest possible standards of care.
This was a long conversation between Dr. Tatem and I and, even edited, it's a long interview. I chose to keep it long because there is such good content I did not want to cut out too much of it simply for the sake of time.
Here are the takeaway points from this interview:
