Dr. Unterberg treats patients suffering from all Urologic conditions, and has a particular interest in men and women with complex bladder and voiding dysfunction. While in his fellowship working at a large tertiary referral hospital, he was able to focus his training on treating patients with complex overactive bladders, stress urinary incontinence, vaginal and urethral mesh complications, as well as management of patients with neurologic conditions. Finally, his fellowship training has allowed him to become proficient in treating patients with various lower and upper urinary tract reconstructive needs. During his training, Dr. Unterberg has published and presented numerous peer reviewed articles on reconstruction as well as female urology, including the dilemma of mesh placement in the UK. Dr. Unterberg enjoys treating the population of San Diego County in providing his expertise in managing patients with both simple and complex urologic needs.

All surgical treatments have inherent and associated side effects. Individual’s outcomes may depend on a number of factors, including but not limited to patient characteristics, disease characteristics and/or surgeon experience. The most common side effects are mild and transient and may include mild pain or difficulty when urinating, discomfort in the pelvis, blood in the urine, inability to empty the bladder or a frequent and/or urgent need to urinate, and bladder or urinary tract infection. Other risks include ejaculatory dysfunction and a low risk of injury to the urethra or rectum where the devices gain access to the body for treatment. Further, there may be other risks as in other urological surgery, such as anesthesia risk or the risk of infection, including the potential transmission of blood borne pathogens.
