The gold standard for incontinence
Dr Jarvis has specialist international fellowship training in placing, replacing and modifying artificial urinary sphincters. He has worked and trained at the prestigous Memorial Sloane Kettering Cancer Centre (MSKCC) in New York City with world leaders in artificial urinary sphincter placement, such as Dr Jaspreet Sandhu. Dr Jarvis has also published papers in international journals on the most common reason for artificial urinary sphincter placement, post-prostatectomy incontinence.
An artificial urinary sphincter is a device that is placed around the outlet of the bladder to replace a weak or absent urinary sphincter. This sphincter is most often damaged after surgery on the prostate, such as a radical prostatectomy.
Dr Jarvis also offers the full range of treatments for incontinence after a radical prostatectomy including behavioural treatments, male slings, and complex diversion operations.
