Private Penile Implant Surgery

Penile implant surgery can be used to treat erectile dysfunction. It involves placing a prosthetic device inside the penis and scrotum. Such a device helps achieve an erection and regain sexual function. The surgery is usually recommended for those who tried other treatments such as medication or a penis pump, but they didn’t work.

In Canada, different provinces have different coverage for penile implants. Check with your urologist or family doctor what is covered and if you qualify. Because implants permanently change the tissue in the penis, they are not used for men whose erection problems are psychological. When considering private surgery for erection problems, it is important to include your partner in your decision.

If you were put on a lengthy provincial waitlist and are unwilling to wait, we can help. We have established relationships with accredited outpatient surgical facilities in the US that can do the surgery without the wait. Contact us toll-free 877 344 3544 to find out more information.

Private Treatment for Uterine Fibroids

Uterine fibroids are muscular benign tumors that grow in the wall of the uterus. They can be very small or large. The cause of fibroids is unknown.

In many cases, fibroids have no symptoms and are only discovered during a pelvic exam or a prenatal ultrasound. In other cases, the symptoms can include the following:

  • Heavy menstrual bleeding
  • Prolonged menstrual periods
  • Pelvic pressure or pain
  • Frequent urination
  • Difficulty emptying the bladder
  • Constipation
  • Bloating
  • Increased abdominal distention
  • Backache or leg pains

If you are experiencing the above symptoms an ultrasound can confirm whether or not you have fibroids. Sometimes an MRI is also ordered to get more details on the size and location of fibroids as well as the type of fibroids.

Many treatment options exist. Medication can be recommended to either shrink the fibroids or prevent the heavy bleeding caused by fibroids. Progestin releasing IUD (intrauterine device) can also relieve heavy bleeding due to fibroids. It, however, does not shrink or makes the fibroids disappear.

Non-invasive treatment such as MRI-guided focused ultrasound surgery can be performed. It is a procedure that requires no cutting but instead uses MRI to locate the fibroid and then uses the ultrasound to destroy fibroid tissue.

Minimally invasive procedures can be performed to destroy fibroids. Each individual situation should be considered as some of those are not recommended to women who want to have children. Talk to you GYN about the below procedures to find out if they are right for you

  • Uterine artery embolization
  • Radiofrequency ablation
  • Laparoscopic or robotic myomectomy
  • Hysteroscopy
  • Endometrial ablation

More invasive options are abdominal myomectomy and hysterectomy. In abdominal myomectomy, fibroids are removed through an open abdominal procedure. Hysterectomy is the removal of the uterus. Hysterectomy remains the only proven permanent solution for uterine fibroids.

If you would like to find out if any of the above procedures are available in a private manner, without any delays due to medical wait list give us a call at toll-free 877 344 3544.

Private Cystoscopy

Cystoscopy is a urologic test that checks the health of your bladder and urethra. It is done by examining the lining of the bladder and urethra with a cystoscope, a thin tube with a camera, and light on the end. The cystoscope is inserted through the urethra.

This diagnostic procedure is a short one – in most cases, it lasts less than 5 minutes and is usually done under local anesthesia (gel or liquid) and you will be awake and able to see the procedure on the screen. In most cases, the results can be discussed right after the procedure.

Cystoscopy is recommended when blood is detected in your urine, you experience frequent or/and painful urinary tract infections, or use the bathroom very often. It can detect bladder or urethra tumors or cancer, bladder stones, enlarged prostate, and scarring or damage caused by UTIs.

The waitlists in the public system can differ depending on the province you are in and the priority of your indicated condition. If you are unwilling to wait and would like to arrange a private cystoscopy, we can assist. Please note that there are no private cystoscopies in the Maritime provinces and you will have to travel outside your local area.

Exercise After Private Joint Replacement

Are you going for a hip or knee replacement or just had one? Are you wondering how the recovery will go? Well, it depends not only on the outcomes of your surgery but also on you and how committed you are to your recovery process. In other words, you will have to work hard consistently to make sure that your recovery is progressing.

After a joint replacement surgery, your exercises program should start on the same day, after you recover from the anesthesia. It needs to be done under close supervision and the assistance of a physiotherapist. An experienced professional will guide you through a number of exercises to build up your muscles around your new knee or hip. Strengthening these muscles will help support your new joint. Balance and flexibility exercises are also important and your physiotherapist will introduce those to you and observe you doing them, advising on corrections if necessary.

You will also need to do cardio exercises to get your heart rate up. Walking with poles is an option if you are experiencing challenges with balance and stability. The elliptical machine and stationary bicycle are good options as well. They are low impact and will get you started until you get into the swing of peddling with your new joint.

When going for your private hip replacement, make sure you have a plan for post-op recovery exercise. If you already have a physiotherapist, keep working with them after your surgery. If you need to find someone, ask your medical facilitator to connect you to one. If you have any questions about private hip or knee replacement and what it may involve, please reach out to us tool free 877 344 3544 or email
