Dr. Friedman's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Friedman "Advanced Vasectomy and Vasectomy Reversal Specialist. Expert male infertility micro-surgeon in the Metro West Boston, Ma. area with over 25 years experience in vasectomy reversals. Emanuel Friedman, MD received his MD degree from the Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons in New York in 1976. He then completed a general surgery residency under the mentorship of one of the world's preeminent cardiovascular surgeons, Dr. Frank Spencer, at Bellevue Hospital (1976-78). Dr. Friedman was recruited to the Harvard Program in Urology (Longwood Area) for his surgical sub-specialty training, where he worked with Dr. Ruben Gittes, a world renowned urologist (1978-82). During his urology residency, Dr. Friedman conducted research on the use of a new synthetic material, Gore-Tex®, to construct and repair ureters,the tube which transports urine from the kidney to the bladder. Dr. Friedman joined the staff of MetroWest Medical Center in 1982 when he began his practice at MetroWest Urology. Dr. Friedman attends to patients at both MetroWest campuses. Dr. Friedman has been interviewed numerous times by local television stations and newspapers about some of the innovations he has brought to the practice of urology in the MetroWest Boston area, including the 5-minute no-scalpel vasectomy, vasectomy reversals, and minimally invasive urologic procedures. Other advances utilize the most recent techniques in reconstruction of the urogenital system, as well as evaluation and treatment of impotence and both men and women who suffer with urinary incontinence. Our vasectomy and vasectomy reversal procedures are in performed in the office, for our patients comfort. Dr. Friedman is a microsurgeon who uses no scalpel and no needles with his reversals - resulting in far less pain and complications."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Friedman "There are many reasons that men with vasectomies choose to undergo no-scalpel no-needle vasectomy reversal — some of them include the following: divorce, remarriage, unexpected loss of a child, improved economic conditions, the family's decision to have another child, or the choice of a dual-career couple to begin a family.

Occasionally, the desire for a vasectomy reversal many be due to medical conditions, such as persistent testicular pain resulting from long-term congestion following a vasectomy.

Dr. Friedman offers free telephone consultations and works around your schedule and often will contact you after office hours so that he can give you his undivided attention. 

We are a patient centered office and you will find Dr. Friedman and his staff to be compassionate, caring and in-tuned to your needs. We encourage our patients to ask questions and seek advice. We aim to attend to each individuals needs in a timely manner, and will treat you with the dignity and respect at all times. "
