The Manila Genitourinary Clinic treats men with chronic prostatitis with repetitive prostatic massage and antimicrobial therapy.
In a study of 30 men with chronic prostatitis, statistically significant improvements occurred in symptom scores and in prostatic fluid white blood cell counts.
The authors recommend a minimum of 10 prostatic massages in order to obtain the most pus-filled specimens for microbial testing, and recommend testing for prostatitis in patients with BPH (benign prostatic hyperplasia).
The study also describes a non-invasive method of obtaining urethral smears.
The full study called: "Symptom Remission And Improved WBC And RBC Counts In Men With Chronic Genitourinary Complaints Treated With Repetitive Prostatic Massage, Antimicrobials, And Medical Therapy," is posted at the peer-reviewed "Internet Journal of Urology" website, http://www.ispub.com, in issue volume 4 number 1. The exact URL is:
The same authors also published "Repetitive Prostatic Massage and Drug Therapy as an Alternative to Transurethral Resection of the Prostate" which was a featured article at "Medscape General Medicine" (http://www.MedGenMed.com), a peer-reviewed, Medline-indexed medical journal. The URL for this article is: http://medgenmed.medscape.com/viewarticle/545733.
The senior author of both studies, Antonio Espinosa Feliciano, Jr., M.D. (http://www.Prostate.com.ph), has published several medical articles on repetitive prostatic massage and antibiotic therapy for chronic prostatitis, and also for benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). He is the Medical Director of the Manila Genitourinary Clinic and the Cebu Genitourinary Clinic.
The first author of both studies, Bradley Hennenfent, M.D., wrote the book "Surviving Prostate Cancer Without Surgery," which is a bestseller for Biblio Distribution. The book can be found at Barnes & Noble, Borders, Waldenbooks, Copperfield's Books, Amazon.com, BarnesAndNoble.com, and other fine bookstores.
