Millions of Americans suffer from urology health-related issues every year. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, incontinence alone affects up to 25 million Americans, including 11 percent of those aged 65-74 and 16 percent of those over 75. Such prevalence makes urology health concerns a common part of coordinated treatment plans across a wide range of healthcare professionals.

Today, UroMed in partnership with Dorland Health [one of the nation’s leading providers of clinician CEU programs] has launched one of the largest CEU programs on Urologic Health available to medical professionals. Hollister Incorporated has also provided an educational grant to Dorland Health to assist in funding this series.

With this launch, you’ll see a few changes to our website on the home page, clinician education page and our blog. We’ve added links to help clinicians access the program with one click!  See the Clinician Continuing Education RSS feed to the right side of this post for details.

Study: Major benefits for spina bifida surgery in the womb

A new study in the New England Journal of Medicine says that if a baby is operated on while still in the uterus, the most serious complications of the worst form of spina bifada, myelomeningocele, can be lessened.

“The reduced risk of hydrocephalus is by the far the biggest benefit of this surgery,” said Dr. Noel Tulipan, director of Pediatric Neurosurgery at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. “I see these patients all the time and the thing that brings these patients back to the hospital over and over again are the shunts.”
