Gareth J.W. Warren, M.D., M.Sc., UR Medicine Urology


My name is Gareth Warren,
I’m a urologist at UR Medicine. focusing in reconstructive urology,
voiding dysfunction sexual dysfunction, and urologic prosthetics
for incontinence and erectile dysfunction. My passion is urethral stricture disease,
it’s a very rare condition impacting predominantly men
dealing with the inability to void due to a narrowing or stricture
in the urethra. And that can be caused for many
reasons that we don’t know, to following a trauma of some sort or impaction of the urethra of some fashion. Often times you never think about
going to the bathroom. Many people take it for granted
until when you realize, “Hey I’m still here at the baseball game,
still at the urinal, whether it had been three or four people have gone right past me.” Or I’m twenty-two years old and
I can’t pee and I have abdominal discomfort what is wrong with me or I’m passing
blood in my urine. I often tell them, “Keep in mind what
you’re telling me there are three other guys down
the hall who are telling me the same
thing and have the same story. There’s another woman whose right
next door who has the same situation,
you’re not alone. That’s why you had to wait another
half an hour to get into my clinic. That’s why we’re running behind, and I think that is key in recognizing
that they’re not alone in this situation.
