Can a urologic nurse contribute to management of secondary impotence in an office setting?


Journal Article

A practicing urologist with a properly trained nurse can form a dual (male, female) sex therapy team. We have found that such a team will improve sexual history-taking from both partners, provide a more holistic approach to patient management, help avoid certain misdiagnoses, and improve case selection for penile surgery. A nurse can assist with the workup, preoperative and postoperative care, counseling, and if so trained, the actual surgery.
