Laguna Hills, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/07/2015 -- Dr. Aaron Spitz serves as the lead practitioner of Orange County Urology Associates and Vasectomy Reversal USA, a division of Orange County Urology Associates providing vasectomy reversals throughout San Diego and nationwide. Recently, Dr. Spitz visited the nation's capital to raise awareness of the looming doctor shortage in America, lobbying for greater funding for the education of new doctors. Dr. Spitz also lobbied in favor of improving different aspects of healthcare in the United States, including earlier, more effective detection of prostate cancer.
Dr. Spitz traveled with several other urological specialists to lobby at the California Congressional and Senatorial offices. This non-partisan group of specialists has tasked themselves with creating better federal healthcare policies in order to make high-quality healthcare available to more Americans. Furthermore, in "Urology Today," the newsletter for Orange County Urological Associates, Dr. Spitz explained that he and his associates are lobbying to not only improve patient access to Medicare and other healthcare, but also "increased funding for the training of future specialists because of a looming shortage."
According to Bruce Japsen of Forbes Magazine, "The nation's shortage of doctors will rise to between 46,000 to 90,000 by 2025." As the population of the United States rises, and many individuals are gaining access to affordable healthcare, there will be increased demand for doctors, and practicing doctors' schedules will have decreased availability. Japsen cites a study conducted by the Association of American Medical Colleges, explaining that "total physician demand [is] projected to grow by up to 17 percent, as a population of baby boomers ages and the Affordable Care Act is implemented."
Dr. Spitz also lobbied with his associates for better practices involving early prostate cancer detection and treatment. In "Urology Today," Dr. Spitz gives advice on symptoms of an enlarged prostate. If any of these symptoms are detected, individuals are advised to seek medical help. These symptoms include weak urinary streams, straining to urinate, getting up at night to urinate, extremely frequent urination, inability to postpone urination, intermittent urination and incomplete emptying of the bladder. Until further reforms are passed to improve prostate treatment and diagnosis, individuals should be more educated on prostate and bladder health, as well as symptoms that may indicate a health issue.
