My name is Steve and I had my Urethroplasty done by a doctor that is a member of http://www.turnsresearch.org. This is a organization that specializes in this type of surgery. There are about 11 surgeons in the organization. A doctor Thomas G. Smith III, MD, FACS who practices in Kerrville, Texas at Urology Associates of Kerrville is a member. Dr. Nejd F. Alsikafi, MD, FACS of Gurnee, Illinois with Uropartners is the surgeon that operated on me. They are excellent doctors and confer with each other. Sorry that I have not got back to you sooner, but I am doing so well that I am back in life and busy as can be.
My surgery was very difficult as the blockage was due to prostate cancer. My stricture was in the lower prostate. It has been 6 months since surgery. I am still a little sore but healing well. After surgery the pain was much less then I was ready for. I would do it again. Prior to surgery I was totally blocked for two years I had a super public tube.
Best of Luck
