Dr. HarrisThe past decade has made a remarkable difference in our ability to treat and evaluate treatment success of common urologic conditions. While early detection and improved surgical techniques have lead to improved treatment results, the ability of physicians to evaluate, objectively, the results of surgery have also improved. This site shares the work of Dr. Michael J. Harris, who has devoted his career to improving results of the treatment of prostate diseases and incontinence.
