Dr. Rechtschaffen grew up and still lives in lower Westchester. He has been in practice for more than twenty years. He specializes in urinary difficulties, pelvic pain/Interstitial cystitis/recurrent UTIs, enlarged prostate, prostate cancer diagnosis and the treatment of advanced prostate cancer. He also enjoys being the preferred male infertility choice of several of the local fertility treatment offices in lower Westchester.
His mission is to be current with leading edge diagnostic and treatment options as they emerge including Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) in UTI management, MRI-fusion prostate biopsies, genomic and germline testing in prostate cancer and innovative nerve stimulation procedures for urinary frequency.
He is amongst the most experienced in the UroLift procedure in the NYC metro area. This procedure is the first of its kind for the treatment of the symptoms of enlarged prostate which preserves sexual functioning, fixes the obstructive prostate gland and has on average the shortest recovery time.
Dr. Rechtschaffen’s other full time job is raising his three teenaged children. Personal interests include coaching youth lacrosse, playing blues guitar and cheering on the New York Yankees.
He has also been involved in physician leadership for many years including holding many national leadership positions in the American Urological Association. He has enjoyed regular trips to Capitol Hill in DC to advocate for physicians and our patients.
