World-Renowned Urologist, J. Francois Eid, M.D., Launches Comprehensive Website for the Center for Advanced Urological Care

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - October 21, 2008) - Dr. J. Francois Eid, M.D., is a respected specialist who has performed more penile implant surgeries than anyone to date worldwide. He averages 300 per year and has performed more than 3,000 over the last 20 years. The Center for Advanced Urological Care in New York City is the only practice entirely dedicated to urinary incontinence, erectile dysfunction, and Benign Prostate Hyperplasia (BPH) treatments.

Dr. Eid's new website, www.urologicalcare.com, is replete with extensive patient education material on erectile dysfunction, urinary incontinence and penile implant procedures. The site is chock-full of articles and educational videos that demonstrate penile implant surgery and use, along with explaining the causes of erectile dysfunction and treatment options. Dr. Eid says that the site is "designed to be patient-friendly and educational for urologists as well." The website is innovative in the healthcare profession in that it skillfully combines unbiased scientific and clinical information.

It is Dr. Eid's intention that the plethora of educational features will serve to educate the patient community and their families about the benefits of his proven surgical expertise and techniques, many of which have been awarded international patents.

For example, one of the greatest concerns and patient fears about penile implant or prosthetic surgery is post-operative infection of the prosthesis. Should infection occur, the prosthesis has to be completely removed and replaced. Dr. Eid developed a sterile procedure, now patented, to prevent infection called the "No-Touch Technique." Since studies show that most infections of implanted devices derive from organisms on the patient's skin, Dr. Eid created a system that eliminates any contact between the device to be implanted and patient skin flora. The novel procedure is thoroughly explained with text and photographs on urologicalcare.com.
