Areas of Expertise
As one of the only urologists in Wisconsin with fellowship training in Male Infertility, Dr. Dewire offers experience in all areas of male factor intertility, including medical therapy and advanced microsurgical reconstructive surgery. In addition, much of his practice is devoted to the evaluation and management of sexual dysfunction in men, an area of growing need.
"I try to emphasize a patient goal-directed approach, keeping treatments simple as possible, while striving for the greatest possible patient satisfaction and benefit. For instance, in couples with male factor infertility it is my job to work with the husband to maximize his fertility potential. This might include anything from quitting smoking, to trying a new medication, to surgical treatment for varicocele or ductal obstruction. We keep going until we agree that we've gone far enough. The same is true for my patients with sexual dysfunction -- we keep working on the problem, progressing from simple therapies such as oral medications to more complex treatments, until the patient says, 'No, that treatment is not for me'."
