Urologist Dr. Diego Rubinowicz Provides Personalized, State-Of-The Art Care

BPH Treatment STORY BY M. DENNIS TAYLOR | PHOTO BY ABNER PEDRAZA

A Wellington resident for the past 20 years, Dr. Diego Rubinowicz leads the Urology Center of Palm Beach using state-of-the-art therapies, including a minimally invasive treatment for Benign Prostate Hyperplasia, or BPH. Rubinowicz moved here after finishing his urology training at the University of Miami/Jackson Memorial Hospital because he was attracted to Wellington’s terrific quality of life, family-oriented atmosphere, and great schools and healthcare. “My father was a doctor, and from an early age, I used to accompany him on his house calls. I saw first-hand the uniqueness of the physician-patient relationship,” recalled Rubinowicz, who founded the Urology Center of Palm Beach in 2001. Married to his wife Claudina with three children, Rubinowicz likes exercise, swimming and tennis and is proud of the work he does in the field of urology. “At the Urology Center of Palm Beach, we are committed to providing personalized, compassionate and stateof-the art urological care to men and women,” Rubinowicz said. “We believe in educating, guiding and empowering patients to allow them to make the best decision for their unique condition.” Rubinowicz has developed a stellar reputation in the local medical community. “I have had extensive exposure in

the areas of urological oncology and endourology. I was the first urologist in Palm Beach County to perform minimally invasive urological procedures, such as hand-assisted laparoscopic nephrectomy, endourological procedures for stone disease and robotic-assisted prostatectomies,” he said. The field of urology has changed dramatically in the past 20 years, Rubinowicz noted. “We are constantly introducing the latest technology for the benefit of our patients,” he said. The practice specializes in men’s and women’s urological conditions, including urologic oncology, prostate health, kidney stones, low testosterone and erectile dysfunction, and urinary incontinence. Women's issues include kidney stones, recurrent urinary tract infections, interstitial cystitis/painful bladder syndrome and urinary incontinence. “An area of special interest to me is Benign Prostate Hyperplasia, or BPH. This is a very common condition that affects more than 70 percent of patients over the age of 60,” Rubinowicz said. The symptoms of BPH include frequent urination, slow stream, urgency and getting up at night to urinate. “We are one of the few practices in South Florida offering a minimally invasive, office-based procedure that utilizes water vapor to shrink the obstructive prostate tissue that leads to BPH,” Rubinowicz explained.

Dr. Diego Rubinowicz is the founder of the Urology Center of Palm Beach.

“I tailor individual treatment plans for each patient and recommend more advanced treatment as needed. I strongly believe that lifestyle modification, including exercise, healthy dietary practices and nutrition, play a key role in the prevention of urologic conditions.” — Dr. Diego Rubinowicz wellington the magazine | march 2020
