Prostate Health

Prostate cancer is the most common form of cancer among Canadian men. Mount Sinai's internationally recognized program in early detection focuses on the health management of men who are at a high risk for developing prostate cancer. Our goal is to detect and treat prostate problems in their early stages to avoid the development of cancer. Not only do we diagnose and treat benign prostate disorders in the Toronto area, but we are also a referral centre for Southern Ontario.

In addition, we have close links with Princess Margaret Hospital's Prostate Centre, located across the street from the Centre, where patients go for prostate surgery and the advanced treatment of prostate cancer.

Prostatitis is the inflammation of the prostate. For more information, please read the Prostatitis patient's guide.

Male Fertility and Sexual Health

As many as 20 per cent of couples find it difficult to conceive a child. Often, the problem is due to reduced fertility in the man. In addition, up to 30 per cent of men have problems with sexual functioning. The Murray Koffler Urologic Wellness Centre acts as a referral centre for Canada for complex male infertility problems and works closely with a clinical research team known world-wide for its expertise in problems of infertility and men's sexual health.

Male Menopause and Andropause

As men age, they go through changes of life, commonly called male menopause or andropause. The transition is generally gradual, often extending over decades. Beyond the question of quality of life and libido, andropause has become associated with osteoporosis and possibly cardiovascular disease. Mount Sinai has special expertise in treating this condition that often goes undiagnosed and untreated because the symptoms are so subtle.

Urology Care

General urology clinics include examinations and consultations for infections, kidney stones, incontinence and lower urinary tract symptoms in men and women.
