An Evolution of USW

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.

Treating Large Prostates (>80g) for BPH

Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) or enlarged prostate is a concern that most men will experience as they age. On average, about 50% of men over 50 and 80% of men over 80 will experience the lower urinary tract symptoms associated with prostatic enlargement. Because of the nature of this condition, many novel procedures have tried to address the limitations of their predecessors. Some have succeeded, while others have fallen out of favor. In the absence of more serious medical complications, Dr. Engel always focuses on medical therapy as a first line of treatment for most cases of an enlarged prostate. However, if initial medical therapy does not offer the relief the patient expects, if there are side effects, or if the patient simply does not want to be on chronic medication, we often move on to offering minimally invasive BPH therapies that can be quick, effective, and have minimal side effects. However, some patients will need surgical intervention such as robotic simple prostatectomy or HoLEP (Holmium laser enucleation of the prostate) as the procedure of choice when the prostatic enlargement is extreme. The prostate is measured in grams; we consider a large prostate to be anything over 80g, and Dr. Engel has treated prostates of up to 400g.
