Dr. Alaa Meshref is a Professor of Urology in the Faculty
of Medicine, Cairo University (Egypt). Urology or urosurgery is a
branch of surgery specializing in genito-urinary diseases, mainly
the kidneys, ureters, bladder, prostate, urethra and testicles.
Dr. Meshref is especially interested in diseases of the prostate.
He is an expert in transrectal ultrasonography, in which an ultrasound
probe is inserted through the anal opening to view the prostate on
an ultrasound machine. Biopsies (samples) may be taken from the prostate
very accurately under transrectal ultrasound guidance. Coming soon
is my new web-site "el-prostata.com," which
will have a wealth of information about the prostate, its diseases,
and how to diagnose and treat them.
In the current website, contact information to
Dr. Meshref will be available, as well as the different places where
he can see his patients (clinics). A list
of hospitals where Dr. Meshref performs
his operations is also available in this website.
Centres where Dr. Meshref can perform transrectal ultrasound examination
of the prostate are mentioned under the link "Ultrasound." Different
aspects of the examination are mentioned briefly, mainly how to get
prepared to perform the test, and what to expect during and after
Besides his medical interests, Dr. Meshref was ex-champion of Egypt

club in Table Tennis, which is the number one club in Egypt and Arab
countries in the game for the last couple of years.
