Case description

Jess Mandel, MD, Chief of Division of Pulmonary, Critical Care, and Sleep Medicine at the University of California, San Diego, and E. David Crawford, MD, Editor-in-Chief of Grand Rounds in Urology, discuss the current state of the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on urologists and urology patients. Dr. Mandel outlines the current state of testing and treatment, emphasizing that the treatment for COVID-19 is similar to patients with respiratory infections regardless of testing availability. Dr. Mandel recommends urologists keep up-to-date on news and recommendations from the CDC website in order to be able to give their patients the most up-to-date information available, as well as practicing common-sense preventative measures such as delayed elective surgeries and increasing the practice of telemedicine.
