What’s Happening in the World of Prosthetic Urology?
It was a busy week this week at Sewum Urology, as it prepared for another honor bestowed by the godfather of prosthetic urology, Dr. Steven K. Wilson, MD, FACS, FRCS, the world’s highest volume prosthetic urologist.
The last time Dr. Wilson came to Sewum with honors, it was to bestow the coveted Center of Excellence designation, recognizing the center as one of the world’s highest volume penile implant centers.
This time, though, the honors were mutual, as the two centers reached a memorandum of understanding as Sister Institutions in recognition of years of shared research and collaboration in the name of better surgical results for patients.
As both centers specialize in the surgical correction of erectile dysfunction, the shared goal has been to raise awareness of the surgery as well as lowering the risks and complications for patients to make the surgical treatment of ED a standard of care.
Dr. Park and Dr. Wilson were joined by American physician Cesar A. Mora-Esteves, MD, as well a local Korean urologist, who came to observe Dr. Park’s surgical technique, especially his subcoronal approach for penile implant surgery.
