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.
USW is comprised of Dr. Engel, Andrew Tobon, MD and Ndidi Okanu, NP. Dr. Engel feels 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.
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.
Erectile dysfunction is a ubiquitous part of aging and is closely related, in most patients, to the efficiency of the blood flow to the penis. Just as with other parts of the body, the penis has arteries that supply it with oxygenated blood. Differently from most other structures in the body, the penis retains some of that blood to create an erection. If this blood does not or cannot reach the penis, an erection may be soft or not last long enough for proper sexual contact. While blood flow issues are the most common cause of erectile dysfunction, there are other considerations, including the fact that some patients have psychogenic causes of their ED. This means that they have essentially psyched themselves out of sex either due to prior poor performance or other psychological concerns.
Urologic Surgeons of Washington is a proud member of Privia Medical Group. The best doctors in our community have joined together to form Privia Medical Group (PMG), a multi-specialty, high-performance medical group that puts patients first. Our physicians are united by the mission of providing better, more coordinated care for their patients.
