Urologic Surgeons of Washington (USW) has been providing the highest quality urologic care for patients from Washington, DC, Maryland, and Northern Virginia for over 20 years. Dr. Engel spent the earlier portion of his career introducing advanced minimally invasive surgery to the DC area. He founded the robotic surgery program at George Washington University Hospital, the first of its kind in the entire Mid-Atlantic region. Dr. Engel served as Vice Chairman and Clinical Director of Urologic Robotic Surgery at GW, and has authored over 20 papers and book chapters relating to his experience. To date he has performed nearly 3000 robotic procedures.
Drs. Losee and Klos, Dr. Engel's previous partners, both moved their practices away. USW is now comprised of Dr. Engel, Andrew Tobon, MD and Ndidi Okanu, NP. In recreating USW, Dr. Engel felt that the best way to serve as many patients as possible, to the highest standard, was to create an availability that is rare now in the DMV. Dr. Engel still prides himself on cutting edge surgical techniques including not only robotic cancer surgery but also robotic vasectomy reversal. We are even more excited to be providing badly needed services to the community such as Urology Urgent Care and full service online and in person ED care. Office procedures are also a priority now such as no scalpel vasectomy and minimally invasive enlarged prostate procedures such as Rezum.
We have expanded our hallmark care to include online and in-person medication therapy for ED, urine PCR testing for UTIs that allows for next day definitive results, in-house urologic ultrasound, and comprehensive diagnosis of male and female urologic issues including simple and complex UTIs, testis pain, overactive bladder, blood in the urine, and prostatitis. Our patients receive the best urologic care for common and complex urologic conditions throughout the DMV. USW prides itself on focusing urologic care on what our patients truly need and providing a complete range of treatment options while still remaining readily accessible.
As we age, there is an inevitable decline in the ability to achieve an erection. This is simply because erectile function depends on blood flow to the penis, and as a man ages, the circulatory system becomes less efficient. This is also why we can’t perform in sports or endurance in our later years the same way we did in our teens, 20s, or 30s. With that said, some men begin to lose their erectile function earlier, and we see patients as young as 30 or 40 who have concerns about their ability to achieve and maintain an erection during sex. At this point, there is a continuum of care that almost every ED patient will follow. This begins with an evaluation of the root cause of the problem, and the answer may include any combination of psychological therapy (for a small number of patients), lifestyle change, and ED medications like Sildenafil and Tadalafil. If these options fail, we move on to injection therapy or a penile implant for severe cases of ED.
