Depending on the circumstances the prostatic drainage is done by either using the finger or by special equipment they have which fully empties the contents of the prostate. The entire treatment is highly individualized. On starting treatment you are given a battery of tests lasting about 5 hours.
During my meeting the urologist kept bringing up something called "Amniocen". This is a drug unique to the ex-USSR and manufactured near Odessa, Ukraine. The urologist refers to this as an extraordinary weapon that revs up the immune system and makes all the other drugs and antibiotics given more effective. This drug is given thruout treatment either by injection in the arm or in some cases by injection in other parts of the body or intravenous depending on your particular case.
The treatment consists of 2 one month periods spaced about 6 months apart. In other words you're treated at the clinic for 1 month and than you return 5 to 6 months later for one more month of treatment. Some cases require only 1 month of treatment with no return. Treatment can take 5 to 6 hours a day and consists of drugs, massage, therapy, consultation, lab tests, ultrasound and others. Cost of treatment is about $3000. The majority of patients are cured and rid of bacteria and pain.
The urologist mentioned to me that despite all pathogens being removed some don't respond or still have their symptoms and in those cases they use a procedure they perfected where they transplant cells of the prostate. I was told the procedure is expensive but in just about every case the pain is eliminated.
The clinic treats about 25 prostatitis patients a week in a hospital type setting. They have 14 urologists on staff and just about all of them will handle your case on a rotating basis and give you individual attention. They have hospital facilities if your case requires it otherwise there is a modern hi-rise hotel located just across the street where you can stay.
Patients thruout the Ukraine and Russia travel to this clinic for treatment. The clinic is unknown outside the ex-USSR so has never treated an American. The head urologist says he looks forward to treating American patients. He is aware of the complete lack of concern and uncaring attitude of American doctors concerning prostatitis and has assured me you will not find anything like that here. My impression of the clinic was favorable and I would feel very comfortable having treatment there.
