Optimizing Health Drives Rapid Growth of The Men's Clinic at UCLA

The exponential growth of The Men’s Clinic at UCLA (TMC@UCLA), established in 2016, attests to both the increasing interest among men in optimizing their urologic, sexual, and reproductive health, and TMC@UCLA’s reputation as the world’s premier clinic for patient care, research, education, and community engagement. Beyond its core expertise in areas of hormone management, fertility treatment, penile rehabilitation, sexual health, and prostate health, TMC@UCLA's comprehensive range of services is designed to optimize the health of a population that has traditionally been less engaged in their care.

It Begins With U: UCLA Urology Patients Persevere and Inspire

Countless UCLA Urology patients have thrived through adversity, thanks in part to the care they have received. In 2010, when she was 17, Chelsie Hill survived a drunk-driving accident in which she sustained a spinal cord injury that left her paralyzed from the waist down. Told by her doctor that she wouldn't be able to walk, Hill had other ideas. “Forget walking,” she said. “I just want to dance.” Today, Hill and her husband are raising a healthy girl, Jaelyn, born in January 2023. Additionally, Hill's business, the Rollettes, an all-women's wheelchair dance team, has performed all over the U.S. as well as overseas. Hill credits the treatment she has received at UCLA Urology with making her current life as a wife, mother, and businessperson possible. “If I didn't have the right care, I couldn't be as independent and successful as I am with my disability,” she says. “I'm so thankful that I found UCLA and Dr. Kim.”

UCLA Urologist Brings Integrative Medicine Treatments to Patients

Lynn Stothers, MD, MHSc, was well into her third decade as an accomplished surgeon-scientist and professor of urology at the University of British Columbia (UBC) in Vancouver when she decided to go back to school. Dr. Stothers joined the UCLA Urology faculty earlier this year as a professor-in-residence, returning to the department where, in 1995, she completed fellowship training in female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery. After learning under the tutelage of Dr. Shlomo Raz, a world leader in the field and currently a UCLA Urology distinguished professor emeritus, Dr. Stothers went back to UBC, where she had completed residency training, and became a leader in her own right. In 2020, she won the American Urological Association's prestigious Politano Award for her career-long excellence in clinical care and research in urinary incontinence and global health.

Raising the Bar for Urologic Care Throughout Los Angeles County

At its core, the health care safety net is made up of hospitals and outpatient facilities that serve the more vulnerable members of society, regardless of their insurance status or ability to pay. Safety net patients often face health challenges from factors that include economic and housing instability, reduced access to services, and barriers to regular health care visits. A unique collaboration built by the L.A. County Department of Health Services, along with UCLA Urology's strong commitment to serving these communities, have resulted in top-quality urology care at three UCLA-affiliated county facilities where the department provides services.

Department's Educational Mission Reaches Wide-Ranging Audiences

The audiences vary considerably — from some of the nation's most noted academic urologists and most prominent prostate cancer research groups to urologists in private practice spanning rural communities and urban centers across the country, as well as health care providers outside of urology seeking to improve their interactions and treatments of marginalized and underserved populations. But regardless of the setting, the topic, or the attendees, UCLA Urology continues to be proactive in its efforts to advance research and clinical care in ways that will improve outcomes for patients at UCLA and well beyond.

Team of Specialists Improves Care of Disorders of Sex Development 

For expecting and new parents, it's high on the list of questions: “Boy or girl?” But for approximately 1 in 5,000 live births, the answer is uncertain. Disorders of sex development (DSD) refers to any of dozens of conditions — usually apparent at birth, but in some cases not until as late as adolescence — involving a mismatch between the child's chromosomes and the appearance of their genitals, making their sex unclear.

Innovations Transform Diagnosis and Treatment of Prostate Cancer

Prostate cancer remains a leading threat to the health of older men — in the U.S., it is the second-commonest cause of cancer death in men and the most common malignancy diagnosed among males other than skin cancer. But in a little more than a decade, a remarkable transformation has occurred in how the disease is diagnosed and treated.

Ensuring Women With Incontinence No Longer Have to Suffer in Silence 

Urinary incontinence — the accidental leakage of urine — is extremely common, particularly among older women. It's also highly treatable. And yet, says UCLA Urology's A. Lenore Ackerman, MD, PhD, assistant professor and director of research for the Division of Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery, many people are either embarrassed to bring up the topic with their physician or assume it's an inevitable consequence of aging that they must live with.

When brought to the attention of experts such as those at UCLA, women with pelvic floor disorders can be treated successfully. But, whether out of embarrassment, a lack of awareness that their problem is common and can be addressed, or because their primary care physician doesn't bring it up, many women suffer in silence.

Sir Alexander Fleming, a Scottish bacteriologist, changed the course of medicine with his 1928 discovery of penicillin, which paved the way for the use of antibiotics to treat patients with bacterial infections. But nearly a century later, antibiotic resistance has become one of the world's biggest public heath crises. Through the evolutionary process, bacteria learn to adapt to antibiotics over time, necessitating the development of new drugs.
