Sexual medicine involves medical, surgical and psychological assessment. Fellows in this sexual medicine will be trained in the medical and surgical management of men and women with sexual dysfunction.  Psychologic evaluations are performed by our staff sex therapist and physical therapy evaluations by San Diego Pelvic Rehab, but the trainee will have an opportunity to interface with these experts as well as all staff at San Diego Sexual Medicine.

The most common surgical procedure performed at SDSM is microsurgical revascularization (approximately 30/year). Dr. Goldstein has more experience performing revascularization surgery than any other surgeon, and has trained those fellows interested in this procedure. This fellowship includes assisting in the OR for all revascularization procedures and learning to perform the surgery. The next most common surgery is penile implantation (approximately 20/year). As a tertiary care center SDSM provides an opportunity for the young urologist to learn not only how to insert a prosthesis, but how to do it in 15 minutes thereby minimizing infection rates, and how to perform the difficult implant placement. Other procedures include the Nesbitt procedure, correction of penile curvature, vulvectomy and vestibulectomy excisions.
