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.

The group consists of the top specialists of the major medical schools of the city of Odessa, Ukraine. The following specialties are represented in the Group: Immunologists, microbiologists, virologists, mycologists, experts in ultrasonic diagnostics, experts in clinical and biochemical laboratory diagnostics, urologists, and endocrinologists.

Dr. Pavels Ivdra , at the Department of Urology at City Clinical Hospital No.7, in Riga, LATVIA, has a website describing his expertise in the treatment of prostatitis. "Diagnostics and treatment of prostatitis is a multidisciplinary problem that cannot be included into area of urology knowledge only," Dr. Ivdra writes. "We have 94 publications about prostatitis differential for diagnostics and treatment problems, including 34 inventions and copyright certificates on discoveries. We have worked out an alternative competeable antibiotic resistant enzyme therapy of chlamydial prostatitis with streptase, urokinase, tissue plasminogen activator (t-PA) while 20 years of work for Riga City Clinical Hospital No.7.".

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:
