"You have turned my life around"
 

I am 87 years old, with a problem of the prostate gland. Before I met Dr. Baum, I went to the bathroom every 30-60 minutes. After Dr. Baum's treatment on my prostate, I go only 5 times per day and only 1 time at night! You turned my life around. I am so very grateful!

-Sidney Daigle


I want to thank you for your due diligence. You saved my life. I highly recommend you!

-Dwight Bastian


Thank you Dr. Baum! Because of you I'm back in the "rodeo"!

-Gerald Wallace

It doesn't matter if you're male or female, between the ages of 20-90, the
chances are if you're electronically connected, you will have received a message asking you if you want to last longer in bed or if you would like to have a longer more powerful erection.

It is estimated that one in ten men over the age of 35 has bought prescription medicines online. This certainly has an appeal to many men. It allows them to make the purchase cheaply sometimes at 1\3 of the cost of the drug from a pharmacy. The man can obtain the medication discreetly and with only the most rudimentary of health checks. But purchasing Viagra over the Internet doesn't come without risks. A recent report by Pfizer suggested 90 per cent of the drug bought this way is fake and may contain toxic ingredients such as rat poison and paint and paracetamol - which if unwittingly combined with paracetamol-based cold or headache remedies could cause liver failure. Also, drugs like Viagra are contraindicated with certain medications like nitroglycerin and can result in a fatal heart attack if a man takes Viagra, develops chest pain and then takes a nitroglycerin tablet. Remember the movie, "XXXX", when Jack Nicholson took both medications and ended up in the emergency room?

Bottom Line: You get what you pay for. Better and safer to get your medications from a reputable source and at the advice from your physician. There's no erection worth a heart attack!


Loss of Urine After Vaginal Surgery-You Don't Need To Depend On Depends

There are many women who will develop urinary incontinence after vaginal surgery. For example if a woman has a protrusion of her bladder, uterus, or rectum into the vagina and needs a surgical correction, the surgery may result in the involuntary loss of urine with coughing and sneezing after the surgery. The reason is that the protrusion or prolapse kinks or bends the urethra or the tube from the bladder that transports urine to the outside of the body before the surgical correction thus preventing incontinence. Once the normal anatomy has been restored and the urethra is no longer kinked, urinary incontinence may occur. It is estimated that more than 30% of women who are continent before surgery will develop incontinence or loss of urine after the procedure.

What to do? Be sure that your doctor checks for incontinence in the office BEFORE you have the surgery. This may require some testing or maneuvers in the office to reduce the prolapse or protrusion and check for incontinence. If incontinence is unmasked, then the doctor can perform a small procedure during the surgery to repair the prolapse that will prevent incontinence afterwards.

Bottom Line: Urinary incontinence is a significant problem that results in loss of self-esteem, confidence, and may lead to a reclusive life-style. In most instances this can be cured and prevented in women who are undergoing vaginal surgery if the doctor is aware of this possibility before the surgery takes place.
