Urology Specialties - Male Urinary Disorders
About Our Center
The Center for Prostate Health and Male Voiding Dysfunction at Columbia University Department of Urology at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital specializes in the evaluation and treatment of disorders of the bladder, prostate, urethra, and male pelvis. Under the leadership of Kimberly L. Cooper and Matthew P. Rutman, the Center offers expertise in treating benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), urinary incontinence, neurogenic and overactive bladder, urinary tract infections, prostatitis, and painful bladder syndrome/interstitial cystitis. Using the latest diagnostic testing and technology available, Drs. Cooper and Rutman specialize in a wide variety of non-operative and minimally invasive procedures. Many patients can be managed successfully with behavioral and dietary changes as well as medical therapy. For those who do require surgery, we offer minimally invasive techniques that often result in quick recovery times and often are done on an outpatient basis.
Diagnosis and Treatment for Male Urinary Disorders
Each year, at The Center for Prostate Health and Male Voiding Dysfunction, Drs. Cooper and Rutman diagnose and treat more than 6,000 patients with male and female voiding dysfunction. They offer state of the art testing as well as medical, behavioral, and surgical treatment options for a wide variety of urinary problems.
Treatment at the Center is individually tailored to each patient's specific complaints and the severity of his or her disease, and our goal is to improve the quality of life of all patients we see. Drs. Cooper and Rutman offer a wide range of treatment options from periodic follow-up to pharmacotherapy to office based procedures to minimally invasive surgery.
