Conditions & Treatments
Urologic Trauma, Reconstruction and Prosthetics
Einstein Healthcare Network’s urology specialists offer the most advanced treatments for urologic trauma - conditions that can cause the inability to urinate, pain during urination or sex and a variety of other conditions. Under the leadership of Jay Simhan, MD, Einstein has become a national destination for patients seeking the best care for urologic trauma, reconstruction and prosthetics. Working closely with patients and their families, Dr. Simhan and his team provide personalized care for patients with delicate and sensitive urologic conditions.
Inflammation, scar tissue, infection and prostate cancer treatment can cause a narrowing of the urethra, called urethral strictures. This condition is more common in men, and can cause difficulty or inability to urinate. Our reconstruction specialists at Einstein have performed hundreds of procedures, including robotic-assisted surgeries, to repair or reconstruct the urethra and restore function.

The passage between the kidneys and the bladder may become narrowed due to inflammation, scar tissue or infection. Einstein is one of a select number of healthcare providers that offer open, laparoscopic and robotic-assisted surgery options for ureter repair and reconstruction.
Male Urinary Incontinence
Male incontinence is a common condition caused by age, prostate cancer treatment, neurological disease or trauma.
While there is no medication that consistently treats male incontinence, Dr. Simhan is one of the top doctors in the country treating this condition with artificial urinary sphincter surgery. By implanting an artificial sphincter and pump around a patient’s urethra, Dr. Simhan provides an effective, long-lasting solution to male urinary incontinence.
Aggressive penile curvature, or Peyronie’s disease, can lead to painful intercourse and erectile dysfunction. Using a surgical technique called penial plication that shortens the long side of the penis to eliminate curvature, the urology team at Einstein can provide relief and restore proper penile function.
