Abstract

Purpose: The American Urological Association first commissioned the Gallup Organization to conduct a study to assess urologist practice patterns in 1992. We present the results of the 1997 survey, the sixth consecutive Gallup survey performed for the Association. Materials and Methods: A random sample of 502 American urologists who had completed urological residency and practiced at least 20 hours weekly in 1996 was interviewed by telephone in February and March 1997. Results: Emerging trends showed significant changes since 1994 in how urologists diagnosed and treated prostate cancer. The survey revealed a significant change in the tests routinely ordered to stage newly diagnosed prostate cancer and for diagnostic evaluation of patients with benign prostatic hyperplasia. Conclusions: Urologists are becoming more cost conscious and effective in ordering pretreatment testing. Urologists are becoming more oriented toward medical treatment for the management of benign prostatic hyperplasia, and less laser surgery is being performed.
