Murph 2022

Perito Urology is proud to sponsor the 2022 Murph event.

The classic CrossFit workout named “Murph” honors fallen Navy Seal Lt. Michael P. Murphy. Lt. Murphy developed and originally named the workout “Body Armor” while on deployment in Afghanistan. In 2005, Lt. Murphy and his team were killed while in combat with the Taliban as he radioed for reinforcement. His call saved the life of Marcus Luttrell, a story that got depicted by Mark Wahlberg in the movie Lone Survivor.

The workout Murph starts with a 1-mile run followed by 100 pull-ups, 200 push-ups, 300 squats, and finishes with a 1-mile run all while wearing a 20# vest for men and 14# vest for women.

Proceeds will go to the  LT. Michael P. Murphy Memorial Scholarship Fund.

2021 Society of Urologic Prosthetic Surgeons’ Cadaver Resident Training Lab

This year’s Society of Urologic Prosthetic Surgeons’ (SUPS) surgical skills lab took place in Scottsdale, Arizona.

Established as an independent organization of urological health care professionals concerned with the surgical practice of prosthetic surgery in the areas of erectile dysfunction and urinary incontinence, the Society of Urologic Prosthetic Surgeons strives to educate patients, primary care physicians, and non-implanting urologists about the benefits of prosthetic solutions for both erectile dysfunction and urinary incontinence.

Dr. Perito was joined by Dr. Suarez-Sarmiento, Dr. Aram Loeb, and several others helping teach residents the nuances of his renowned Perito Minimally Invasive Infrapubic technique for Inflatable Penile Prosthesis. We would like to send a thank you to our SUPS/SMSNA Surgical Lab faculty members for making this year’s lab another great success!

Dr. Perito Attends the 2021 Sexual Medicine Society of North America Conference

SMSNA

Dr. Perito and the team from Perito Urology traveled to Scottsdale, AZ to partake in the first live Urology Conference since 2019.

This year’s Sexual Medicine Society of North America (SMSNA) Conference was a great opportunity to see old colleagues and the new talent of Urology residents that have joined the society and had their first opportunity to present their research.

This year Dr. Suarez-Sarmiento, Jr. gave three of his presentations in front of several of the top implanters in the field. His first presentation was Ethnic Disparities in Penile Prosthesis Surgery: An Analysis of Hispanic Patients. This abstract tackles the differences in impotence disease progression in Hispanic men, as well as treatment options and satisfaction rates following Implant surgery.

Hispanics represent the fastest growing minority population in the United States and understanding how this population of patients respond to current treatment modalities can help us better serve them as physicians. The second presentation, Expedited Algorithm for IPP following Radical Prostatectomy, is a presentation that was preempted by Dr. Perito’s own presentation, Updates on Penile Prosthesis Surgery Session: Prostatectomy to IPP Placement, A Novel Algorithm.

Drs. Suarez-Sarmiento and Perito really hit their point home that patients who undergo radical prostatectomy due to prostate cancer should be screened sooner for erectile dysfunction than the 2-year waiting period most urologists recommend. Our studies concluded that the longer patients wait to address their ED can have negative effects on penile length and patient psyche.

The final presentation given by Dr. Suarez-Sarmiento, Proper Circumferential Sizing of Penile Implants, was a study of over 1,300 patients, and described what measures can be taken to properly size a patient’s implant to minimize pain and improve satisfaction rates.

Scientific presentations allow for fellow physicians and those who work in the healthcare industry to further educate them of emerging trends and technologies that improve patient safety. Perito Urology would like to thank the SMSNA committee for putting on such a fun and informative event this year, Scottsdale was a hit!
