Dr Andy McCullough joined the Urologic Institute of Northeaster New York in January of 2011. After 17 years in the Big Apple Dr McCullough has settled into a more pastoral life in Albany. He attended The Johns Hopkins University as a Biophysics undergraduate major. His medical career began in Baltimore at the University of Maryland School Of Medicine where he attended medical school, followed by a urologic residency at the Johns Hopkins University Hospital. After residency he went on to practice general urology on the clinical urology faculty of the Yale University School of Medicine for 10 years. In 1993 he joined the full time faculty at New York University School of Medicine where he specialized in Andrology, the field of urology that deals with male sexual health, fertility, and hormonal imbalance. He was one of the original clinical investigators of Viagra and has conducted nearly a hundred clinical trials ranging from gene therapy for erectile dysfunction to the treatment of premature ejaculation. He has published widely and lectured nationally and internationally on the treatment of sexual dysfunction after prostate cancer surgery. “The successful treatment of prostate cancer frequently leaves a lifetime of sexual dysfunction that is frequently left untreated. Many men don’t realize the options that they have. They and their partners console themselves in the fact that the cancer is cured, but for many, the loss of their sexual function and intimacy is devastating”, he says. Dr McCullough has frequently donated his time as speaker at prostate cancer support groups throughout the New York Metropolitan area. In 2009 he became a talk show host on the “Men’s Health Show” on the NYU-Sirius Doctor’s Radio Channel, Sirius Channel 114. This weekly, 2 hour, radio show featured nationally renowned guests and fielded questions from callers throughout the US and Canada. “Every week I was amazed how quickly the time passed. Many patients are afraid to ask their physicians questions; afraid to challenge them and afraid to be embarrassed that there question might be perceived as silly. The anonymity of radio empowered patients to ask any questions without being embarrassed. It was so gratifying to educate so many people. The radio show was always the highlight of my day”
Currently he is a Professor of Urology at Albany Medical College.
