Our board-certified surgeon, Dr. Andrew Mercurio, will discuss Artificial Urethral Sphincter placement as a solution to chronic urinary incontinence. Artificial Urethral Sphincter consists of a silicone hydraulic occluder which is placed around the urethra and connected to a titanium subcutaneous injection port. The Artificial Urethral Sphincter Port System (AUS™) is designed for veterinary patients, dogs and cats, for the long-term relief of sphincter mechanism incontinence that is unresponsive to medical management.
Dr. graduated as class salutatorian from Assumption College in Worcester, MA. He attended Tufts University Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine, then headed south where he completed a small animal medicine and surgery rotating internship at the University of Georgia. Dr. Mercurio completed a combined master of science and small animal surgery residency at The Ohio State University in Columbus, OH, and earned his board certification in small animal surgery. Dr. Mercurio enjoys all aspects of soft tissue and orthopedic surgery, with special interests in surgical diseases of the upper airway, fracture repair, and advanced oncological surgery.
