• Massive response by the public for the sexual wellness camp
• First of a kind camp in Chennai by a single specialty hospital
Chennai, December 01st, 2023: Asian Institute of Nephrology and Urology (AINU, Chennai), a leading kidney care specialist in India & Chennai’s largest nephrology and urology healthcare specialty centre, proudly announces the successful conclusion of its Men’s Sexual Wellness Screening Camp. This noteworthy health initiative and a first of its kind camp on sexual wellness in Chennai, designed to prioritize men’s well-being, at the AINU’s hospital premises in Nungambakkam, Chennai. The free medical camp witnessed a strong response and a significant turnout of more than 40 patients, ranging from their early 20s to late 80s, benefiting from the comprehensive quality screenings and consultations offered.
Following International Men’s Day (19th November), Dr. Sanjay Prakash, Consultant Urologist, and Microsurgical Andrologist, AINU Chennai emphasized the critical need for prioritizing men’s sexual health. “We conducted a series of tests that contribute to a thorough diagnosis and expert-based examination, including lab assessments monitoring total testosterone, random blood sugar, lipid profile, endothelial scan and an andrology consultation – all provided completely free to the public. I would like to emphasize that we need to focus on shedding our inhibitions on sexual practices.
Breaking the taboo associated with this topic and adopting right sexual practices is crucial. Men’s health and sexual wellness are often much neglected and the negligence could severely impact both their personal and professional life. This camp not only focussed on sexual wellness, but also served as a screening for cardiovascular health” commented Dr. Sanjay Prakash.
While there is a growing emphasis on andrology and men’s reproductive health in India, awareness remains a challenge due to the sensitivity surrounding the subject. AINU Chennai has emerged as a beacon in addressing this gap by providing high-quality care, consultations, and tests, particularly in corrective surgeries and Cosmetic Andrology. This includes resolving complaints related to sexual wellness and male fertility aspects.
AINU Chennai aims to foster open discussions on men’s sexual health, dismantling taboos, helps in clarifying sensitive points centred around sexual health and creating platforms for education and awareness. The institution’s commitment to proactive healthcare practices is evident through initiatives like the Men’s Sexual Wellness Screening Camp, which not only provides valuable medical services but also contributes to the broader mission of community well-being and impactful social awareness on men’s sexual health.
