||The Prostatitis Center will be Celebrating Ten years existence in August 2007
Prostatitis Center in Tucson Arizona states that it is the
only clinic in North America devoted exclusively to treating
prostatitis. It was started by a grateful patient, retired airline
pilot, Captain Arthur Brown, who had been successfully treated
in the Philippines by Dr.
Antonio E. Feliciano. Brown recruited his friend as medical
director: Dr. John W. Polacheck, an internal medicine physician
experienced in treating infectious diseases. Since opening in
1997, they have adjusted the Manila protocols in order to treat
patients in the USA. The Tucson Prostatitis Center is also committed
to research and has archived a large amount of original information
on its website. Website Internet address: http://www.prostate-usa.com

Chronic Bacterial Prostatitis - Message from Doctor Polacheck
For the past 12 years, I have been studying the cause of Chronic Prostatitis. Symptomatic patients have come to our Center from all 50 States of the United States, as well as from the Americas, Europe, Asia, Africa, the Pacific and Australia seeking a diagnosis (and then treatment). In order to make a specific etiologic diagnosis, a vigorous prostate massage was done daily for one week. The expressed prostatic secretions (EPS) were collected and cultured for bacteria and bacteria-like organisms. I would like to report the results from 600 consecutive patients: over 99 percent were found to have a bacteria or a bacteria-like organism, and many patients had multiple organisms. Therefore, this disorder should be properly called: Chronic Bacterial Prostatitis.
||To inform you of 2 clinics in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, who specialize in Prostatitis.
I have a solo practice or urology in which I treat a high volume of men with
chronic prostatitis.. . I have a practice Web site at www.davidcornellmd.com.
I believe in individualizing care for prostatitis and utilize massage, oral or
parenteral antibiotics, anti-inflammatory agents, and topical agents in selected
patients. I do not believe one formula works for everyone.

At the Sanos Clinic in Moscow, the
Russian Federation, they explain that "As the main reason
of development of severe prostatitis are small microabscesses
(closed foci of pyoinflammation 1-2 mm in size), they should
be removed. The original method of SANOS consists in solving
this surgical problem without operation." They state that
"finger massage" can accomplish drainage, but frequently
abcesses are plugged, so "Negative effects of finger massage
can be corrected with our technique of prostatic drain using
an original rectal pneumovibromassager."

Dr. Song is the Clinical Director, urology specialist, expert in sexually transmitted diseases, and creator of the 3D Treatment for the treatment of chronic prostatitis, pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), and sexually transmitted diseases. Over the last ten years Dr. Song has successfully treated thousands of complicated prostatitis cases. He has been treating foreign patients since 2003 including patients from: the United States, Britain, Germany, Canada, Australia, and more than 20 other countries. The effectiveness of the 3D Treatment is a result of three critical factors: (1) proper testing to accurately identify pathogens, (2) direct injection of the most effective antibiotics into the infected areas to kill pathogens, and (3) direct injection of the unblocking formula to decalcify and clear blocked passageways. Injections are non-rectal injections (no new pathogens are introduced into the prostate), and the proprietary unblocking formula exposes pathogens that direct injection alone cannot. Dr. Song Currently has two 3D Treatment clinics, one located in Changsha and the other in Xiangtan, Hunan Province, China. His website can be found at:
