At the New England AUA Conference (Sept. 29- Oct. 1 in Portland, ME), Rational Surgical Solutions® (RSS) is introducing the Rati-Fi®-PreOp® Urology Video Center, which features high-quality, engaging medical videos that educate patients about treatments for common urological procedures. To show the quality of the content, RSS is offering doctors the chance to educate their patients about the Laser Vaporization of the Prostate procedure by downloading the video for free. The Urology Center provides the educational content for the Rati-Fi® Informed Consent System introduced by RSS earlier this year.
Laser Vaporization of the Prostate is the most commonly performed procedure for relief of bladder outlet obstruction due to benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). The video reviews information about the prostate and the patient’s condition. It then shows patients how doctors can use the minimally invasive laser procedure to unblock the urethra. The video is an effective and efficient way to educate patients about the procedure and insure that they understand their choices.
“Video is the ideal platform for educating patients of all cultural backgrounds and education levels about medical issues, treatments, and surgery as well as post-operative care,” said Dr. Jonathan Fialkov, CEO & Founder of Rational Surgical Solutions. “For patients to make truly informed choices about their treatment, they must understand their options. PreOp videos combine detailed medical animations and clear explanations of complex procedures.” He added that the Urology Center already has more than 12 videos. Several are available in both English and Spanish.
