HCM CITY — Chợ Rẫy Hospital in HCM City, the largest healthcare facility in the south, has opened an andrology unit under the Urology Department to handle all problems related to male genital emergencies, and male reproductive and sexual health.
The examination room began receiving patients on Tuesday (December 14), handling all male problems related to sexual and erectile dysfunction and offering treatment for sexually transmitted diseases, genital tumors, and genital reconstruction surgeries.
Asso. Prof. Thái Minh Sâm, head of the Urology Department, said the unit’s specialist team had been sent to leading hospitals in countries such as Australia, Germany, Italy, South Korea and Singapore to study and exchange expertise.
With highly skilled surgeons and medical experts, the hospital has long provided examination and treatment for male reproductive health care, sexual healthcare and genital-related conditions in males.
The unit plans to adopt state-of-the-art techniques in treatment of male infertility, urinary incontinence, and testicular implants.
The unit will perform gender-reassignment surgery when the surgical procedures are approved in Việt Nam, he said. —VNS
