New Men’s Clinic Cures Reproductive Health Issues Linked To Cancer and Cardiovascular Disease
The Turek Clinic designed to meet unique men’s health needs in the Bay Area
San Francisco, CA – September 16, 2008: Despite the success of the women’s health care movement in the U.S. over the past decade, there has not been equally significant improvement in the care of reproductive age men ages 21-55. Only a fraction of the men with reproductive health issues are actually treated, even though there is evidence to suggest erectile dysfunction, hormone deficiency and ejaculation conditions are a “window” into future health conditions. A contributing factor to the overall lack of care for reproductive age men is that very few specialized health practices exist that focus specifically on the needs of this population.
…The Turek Clinic was created not only to treat the unique issues in men’s health, but to actually cure them.”
– Dr. Paul Turek
The Turek Clinic founded in July 2008 by Dr. Paul Turek, a leading surgeon and former endowed chair professor at the University of California San Francisco, is leading the charge to make men aware of the importance of paying attention to their reproductive health. The research of Dr. Turek and others indicate that reproductive dysfunctions may be early indicators of severe and potentially life-threatening health issues such as cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis and cancer. Dr. Turek’s mission is to combine innovative medical techniques, many of which he has pioneered, and proven treatments with good old fashioned, patient-centered medical care to treat erectile dysfunction, infertility, fertility, ejaculation issues, and low testosterone states.
“Seemingly benign problems like infertility and erectile dysfunction that may occur in younger men have now been shown to have more serious implications for overall health later in life,” says Dr. Turek. “The Turek Clinic was created not only to treat the unique issues in men’s health, but to actually cure them.”
The medical experience that The Turek Clinic offers is intended to instantly put the patient at ease and is designed to meet the specific needs of active, productive men. The clinic itself, the brain-child of local celebrated architect Cass Calder-Smith, is located in the downtown business district and feels like mid-century living room with a flat screen TV, wireless internet, business and sports magazines and national newspapers within easy reach.
Services offered by the Clinic include a comprehensive array reproductive health services such as vasectomy reversal, vasectomy, male hormone testing, surgical sperm retrieval, testis prosthesis placement, infertility and erectile dysfunction treatment. All services are delivered at The Turek Clinic, 55 Francisco St., Suite 300 in San Francisco, California. The clinic is open Monday-Friday 8am- 5pm.
