Anyone know if there are any female prostate surgeons? All the surgeons I have heard of (from reading HW, mostly) are men.
A related thought: I wonder if male patients are more comfortable with a male surgeon. Something like... "If I am going to put my erectile future in someone's hands, I want it to be a guy who sorta has some skin in the game".
I'm sure there are some around somewhere.
No doubt some males are more comfortable with a male surgeon or URO. Just as women very often choose female OBs when they are available, which is very common in recent years. But then there are probably an equal number who either don't care or who might actually prefer a female for whatever reason.
Except for the recent large increase in female OB surgeons, I have worked with very few female surgeons of any type. Even though that has changed rapidly in recent ears, still, I have not seen very many of them other than OB. I have never worked with a female URO surgeon. But I am sure thy are out there somewhere.
But, whatever you do, don't use that female anesthesiologist who was in the news recently.www.washingtonpost.com/local/anesthesiologist-trashes-sedated-patient-jury-orders-her-to-pay-500000/2015/06/23/cae05c00-18f3-11e5-ab92-c75ae6ab94b5_story.html
