October 6, 2014

Take a tour of Iris Cantor Men’s Health Center at NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell with this slideshow.

Men's Health clinics, the subject of a recent article in Urology Times, differ in design and layout but are the same in their focus on providing comprehensive health care for men.

The goal of men's health clinics is to bring needed care under one roof. These clinics, the subject of a recent article in Urology Times, differ in design and layout but are the same in their focus on providing comphrensive health care for men.

NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center in New York opened its Iris Cantor Men’s Health Center in July 2012, according to Steven A. Kaplan, MD, the center’s director.

“Traditionally, men’s health models were run, at least in the academic world, by internal medicine people,” said Dr. Kaplan, who is professor of urology at Weill Cornell Medical College. “I think it was the first time at Cornell that we were able to coalesce different departments-urology and medicine-under one banner. It demonstrated that you could actually bring in multiple different stakeholders under one roof. One entry system; one exit system.”

Dr. Kaplan says his vision for a men’s health center is a one-stop center for dealing with the most common things that men who access the health care system want. He says this includes urologic health, sexual health, urinary issues, cancer screenings, cardiac health, issues related to obesity and diabetes, sports medicine, psychological health, diet, and exercise.

“We don’t do all of that. But if I had my wish list, it would include these areas to handle it all in one center,” Dr. Kaplan said.

The Iris Cantor Men’s Health Center features two state-of-the-art video urodynamic rooms, a suite of physician treatment rooms, pelvic floor therapy room, advanced digital endoscopic and imaging equipment, and an area devoted to clinical technologies and investigations that allow state-of-the-art voiding dysfunction evaluation, treatment, and research, according to the center's website.
