Men's health is a catastrophe. Here's how we can help.
“A hundred years ago, women lived one year longer than men, but now they live five years longer than men. And things are getting worse. Currently, the lifespan of men in the U.S. is declining due to alcohol, opioids, and suicide. These trends need to change.
I take care of men. I’ve been a urologist for almost 25 years and have seen thousands of men as patients, many of whom have shared their most personal thoughts and feelings with me. I’ve followed many men in my practice for 15 to 20 years and have witnessed the slow physical decline that is inevitable with age. Over that time, I have also aged, yet many of my patients have had it far worse than I have.
As a urologic surgeon, clinical researcher, physician educator, and practicing clinician, I have embarked on a journey to help myself, my patients, and other physicians meet these challenges, to maximize our health and maintain the glow and vitality of youth.”
Judson Brandeis is a urologist.
He shares his story and discusses his KevinMD article, “The catastrophe of men’s health and how we can help.”
