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, 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

Consider this a top ten list of things to ask your doctor about your upcoming surgery or procedure.

1. What is my diagnosis?

2. What is the name of the procedure you are recommending?

3. What are the goals and benefits and what can I expect to gain from this procedure?

4. What are the risks?

5. Are there alternative procedures that I should be considering?

6. Is this a common procedure? It is a procedure you commonly perform?

7. Why now? What happens if I wait?

8. How do I prepare for the procedure?

9. How do I recover from the procedure?

10. How do I pay for this procedure? Is the procedure covered by insurance?
