Delaware Urologic Associates Launches Website to Offer New Treatment Info Online

NEWARK, DE -- (MARKET WIRE) -- October 24, 2006 -- There's a new website offering treatment information and professional advice to those of us faced with the need to look into treatment options for a variety of urological conditions... from Erectile Dysfunction, Urinary Incontinence and No-Scalpel Vasectomies to Benign Prostate Hyperplasia, Urinary infections, Kidney Stones and even Prostate Cancer. Located online at: http://www.delawareurologic.com and featuring an impressive array of Urologic Treatment Resources and Professional Urological Advice, the new DUA site has quickly become a regular stop for prospect patients and anyone else searching for newer and better treatments for common kidney and Urologic Disorders. Thousands of guests have taken advantage of delawareurologic.com's online treatment center to learn about da Vinci Robotic Radical Prostatectomy, Laser Lithotripsy, Incisionless Vasectomy, Greenlight Laser Photovaporization and more.

From centrally located offices and state-of-the art surgical and diagnostic facilities to a brand new hub on the world-wide web offering advice and information on the latest advances in urologic technology and treatment... Delaware Urologic Associates does it all. Led by Temple University School of Medicine graduate, Thomas Jefferson University Hospital resident and former Wilmington Veterans Hospital instructor Dr. Peter J. Muench, DUA has announced plans today to expand their already substantial slate of web-based urologic treatment resources.

The Delaware Urologic Associates website will now include information on Urodynamics, Extracorporeal Shock Wave Lithotripsy, Incisionless Vasectomies, Penile Implants, Female Incontinence, Bladder Slings, da Vinci Robotic Radical Prostatectomy, Greenlight Laser Photovaporization, Percutaneous Nephrostolithotomy and a wide variety of most up-to-date urologic treatments available anywhere. The expansion is the latest in a line of site upgrades designed to keep Delaware Urologic Associates both accessible and responsive to the public's urologic health needs.

"The response to our latest round of urologic health and treatment offerings has been amazing," said Dr. Muench of Delaware Urologic Associates. "We knew there was a demand out there for easily accessible information on a range of kidney and urological disorders. After all, over 180,000 men are diagnosed with prostate cancer every year -- and that's just here in the United States. Most of their urologists will recommend a radical prostatectomy but we're as close as the nearest computer with info about a minimally invasive procedure known as da Vinci Robotic Radical Prostatectomy. Even so, the number of extra visitors to our site since the upgrade was quite a surprise."

DUA's Website Upgrade Offers Info on a Variety of kidney and Urologic Disorders, Including:

-- da Vinci Robotic Radical Prostatectomy: Unlike an open prostatectomy, during which your surgeon uses a comparatively large abdominal incision to access your prostate, a da Vinci Robotic Radical Prostatectomy involves the insertion of robotic instruments into small key-hole ports. Clear benefits of robotic surgery are the reduction in postoperative pain and length of hospitalization because of the minimally invasive nature of the procedure. Most patients go home the next day. Blood loss during surgery is much less thanks to the high degree of visibility provided by the superb optics of the da Vinci System. Transfusion rates are negligible. Patient and recovery time are greatly improved, thanks to the minimally invasive benefits of the da Vinci Robotic Radical Prostatectomy. Patient scaring is negligible due to the small incisions used.

-- Greenlight Laser Photovaporization: The Photoselective Vaporization of the Prostate Procedure uses a Greenlight laser system to remove enlarged prostate tissue. It offers a relatively pain-free solution to Benign Prostate Hyperplasia by combining the effectiveness of the surgical "gold standard" (TURP) with the comfort, safety and ease of a minimally invasive procedure. Most patients are discharged within fourteen hours after the procedure.

-- Urodynamics : Urodynamics tests the function of your lower urinary tract (how much your bladder and your urethra can hold and let out) by making use of physical measurements such as urine pressure and flow rate to provide an accurate clinical assessment.

-- No-Scalpel (Incisionless) Vasectomy: New, "no-scalpel" vasectomies make male sterilization possible without bleeding or scrotal pain.

-- Extracorporeal Shock Wave Lithotripsy: The ESWL procedure pulverizes renal and urethral calculi into smaller fragments by means of directed shockwaves so that their dust can be "passed" more easily. Extracorporeal Shock Wave Lithotripsy is noninvasive and therefore requires less in the way of anesthesia than comparable renal stone treatments, rendering patients stone free without the need for an endoscopic procedure or surgical intervention.
