Gender of Patient Can Honor Modesty For: Male

How This Doctor Accommodated Patient Modesty Requests: Dr. Gange shared on 10/9/2017 that he would be happy to accommodate requests honoring male modesty for other male patients in the future


Like millions of men, I suffer from BPH. The prescription drugs have unwanted side effects, as does most surgery. A new technique called UroLift installs permanent implants within the prostate that open the urethra. I decided I wanted this procedure. Many practitioners offering this procedure insist on general anesthesia which entails an operating room full of people and there is zero modesty associated with the lithotomy position. I found the doctor, Dr. Steve Gange, a urologist in Utah, served as the lead investigator during the trials leading to FDA approval. He’s done almost 400 procedures since 3/2011 and is now the primary instructor for the manufacturer and travels all over North America lecturing and teaching other urologists how to perform the procedure. As a result, he has participated another several hundred UroLift procedures. He was the first urologist in the world to perform the procedure under strictly local anesthesia, and he continues to offer UroLift under strict local in his Salt Lake City office. It only takes 20 minutes for the local anesthesia to take effect and ten minutes for the procedure itself. I reported to his office at 8:30 am and was back in my hotel at 9:30 AM.

I elected to fly to Salt Lake City from Maine for this procedure because of my desire to maintain my modesty and Dr Gange’s expressed willingness to accommodate my concerns. Although we had emailed about this prior to my travels, to my surprise on the day before my scheduled treatment I got a message from the office manager that Dr. Gange would be assisted by a female nurse. I contacted Dr. Gange regarding this and reminded him of my concerns his response was immediate: he arranged to have a male PA assist in the administration of anesthetic and the procedure itself. And that is what happened. In the end, Dr. Gange shared that he would be happy to accommodate requests honoring male modesty for other male patients. I was very pleased with my experience and particularly how Dr. Gange accommodated my wishes for modesty. I strongly recommend him for any male patients who are modest. It was certainly worth going all way to Utah.
