There are 12 million males in Australia, making up 49% of the population. For this group often health is a passing thought or something to be worried about at a future time that never seems to actually arrive. With an average age of 36.5 years, males suffer from varying health condition but often experience poorer health outcomes when compared to females. This can be attributed to a variety of factors including ethnicity, remoteness, socioeconomic status and age.
Recently male health has been a major focus of the government and health organisations as they try to reverse the traditional trend of males not seeking medical advice or assistance. Mental health in particular, with a strong focus on depression, has been key figure in the fight for better male health.
The emphasis at Urology Now is on quality, accessibility and affordability.Dr David JG Brown, Urology Now
Australian males stereotypically are traditionally shy and self-conscious about talking about their health issues. This becomes even more apparent when it comes to discussing issues with genitalia and seeking professional health advice.
Dr David Brown is a consultant urological surgeon and throughout his many years of experience has seen it all. He initially underwent training in 1994 in the UK’s Royal Air Force before moving to New Zealand in 2011 to begin practising in Invercargill. After training and teaching specialist trainees as an intern supervisor for the New Zealand Medical Council, Dr Brown moved to Orange to take up a position with the Orange Base Hospital, and has since delivered a much needed comprehensive urology service to men in the Central West.

Dr Brown said there are many health issues that can occur throughout the male genitalia area including the penis, urethra, scrotum, prostate and general pelvic region. Depending on the type of issue you have some are curable or treatable, while others simply have to be managed, however all should be assessed by a professional. The most common urology problems that affect men are:
- Urinary Tract Infection
- Erectile Dysfunction
- Enlarged Prostate
- Urinary Incontinence
Urology Now can investigate all these issues and many more. They can also assist with elective surgery such as scalpelless vasectomies which are a quick and simple procedure that results in a simple yet reliable reliable method of contraception.
