About Me

Dr. Seftel and colleagues provided an update in the August 2015 issue of Mayo Clinic Proceedings for clinicians treating hypogonadal men, where they looked at the most recent Endocrine Society guidelines from 2010 and note where changes could be made or where evidence neither supports or denies efficacy and safety of testosterone therapy. Notably, patients with frailty and metabolic syndrome are two instances where changes are recommended. No Level 1 evidence was found to suggest that TRT is associated with CV disease. 

View Dr. Seftel's presentation of the update.

Dr. Seftel is distinguished as the only urologist and sexual health expert included on the American Heart Associations writing panel that recently released the groundbreaking scientific statement Sexual Activity and Cardiovascular Disease. The 2012 statement provides recommendations for when sexual activity is safe for heart patients and encourages physicians to take the time to discuss the matter. Decreased sexual activity and function are common in patients with cardiovascular disease and often leads to depression and anxiety. The statement was approved by the American Heart Associations Science Advisory Committee and endorsed by the American Urological Association, the Society for Thoracic Surgeons, the International Society for Sexual Medicine and many other professional societies.
