|Aims and Objectives|
A more deliberate approach to the evaluation and treatment of patients suffering with Urological Pelvic Pain Syndromes (UCPPS) is proposed. Reference and comparison is made to the manner in which an oncological specialist evaluates, strategizes therapies and re-evaluates patients. In contrast to other specialists, the oncologist confirms and stages the disease, reassures patient, conjures confidence and hope, establishes time lines and objectives, in pursuit of complete remission. The presenters will describe this algorithm, demonstrating its application and utility in the realm of UCPPS in both male and female patients.
