Description:
Testosterone therapy is one of the most controversial topics in medicine, yet multiple medical societies endorse its use, supported by level 1 evidence showing a variety of health benefits. This innovative and comprehensive course will focus on men’s health issues, particularly testosterone deficiency and its treatment, and other male sexual dysfunctions. Studies indicate that nearly 40% of men over the age of 45 have overtly low testosterone levels, yet education in this area is extremely limited. The course is led by men’s health pioneer Abraham Morgentaler, MD, whose research in the field transformed our understanding of the science of testosterone in men. Dr. Morgentaler and the faculty will address the various controversies, demystify the topic with science and clinical experience and provide an evidence-based approach to treatment. The course will also address management of several common sexual problems for men, including erectile dysfunction and Peyronie’s disease.

Program Highlights:
• The importance of testosterone in male health
• The ABCs of testosterone
• Can testosterone be used in men with prostate cancer?
• Reducing risks, including cardiovascular disease
• Effective and safe interventions to preserve fertility
• Is it low T or natural aging?
• The who, when and why of testosterone replacement therapy
• Advising patients on testosterone myths and facts
• Addressing “hormonophobia”: What’s the truth?
• Evidence-based solutions for improving male sexual problems
• Diagnosis and treatment of Peyronie’s disease
• Real-world evidence - who’s a candidate for T therapy? Recent updates on society guidelines and recommendations
• Management of complex cases
• How to handle adverse effects from treatment (i.e., erythrocytosis, rise in PSA)
• Practical pearls from Dr. Morgentaler

Objectives:
At the end of the course, you will be able to:
• Recognize how to identify individuals with testosterone deficiency
• Identify the risks and benefits of testosterone therapy
• Recognize the advantages and disadvantage of each of the treatment options for management of male sexual dysfunctions.
