Problem solver- doesn't give up even in tough cases!

My previous doctor felt my condition could not be improved; I'd have to live with it. Dr. Blaivis did not hesitate to find a solution.

He saved me from long term kidney damage

I was very fortunate to have Dr Blaivas as my urologist. It was in the late 80's and the standard procedure for people with spinal injuries was to test your bladder using static methods. Dr Blaivas pioneered a dynamic method, which he coined Urodynamics (now used by all competent urologist today), which almost certainly saved me from long term kidney damage. His method was the only one that saw there was a problem. Today, I have a healthy urological system because of Dr. Blaivas and I am grateful. Years later I did bladder enlargement surgery with Dr. Blaivas. It is a procedure I would do again in a heartbeat because of the resulting quality of life improvements. Some doctors today are preferring to treat neurogenic bladders with medication rather than surgery. As someone who was initially treated with medication and later had the surgery, it was like getting your life back. The side effects from the meds come on slowly and you don't realize how bad things are. The surgery took about three weeks to fully recover from (prolonged due to the meds that had now stopped). Later, I was able to do wheelchair marathons and get my masters degree, something I know with certainty would not have happened without the surgery. Dr. Blaivas was always available to talk and I never felt rushed, he is a very nice man.
