Christopher Love, MD
Dr Christopher Love graduated from Monash University, Australia, in 1978. He completed his Urology training in Melbourne in 1986, and then did post-fellowship training in San Francisco., USA.
He became involved in Men’s Health in 1987 and has been a major penile implant surgeon in Australia since that time and is now the highest volume implant surgeon in Australia. He is regarded as a leading national expert in the field of prosthetic urology.
He has developed his own technique for penile implant surgery, the Minimally-Invasive No-Touch (MINT) procedure, which has resulted in some of the lowest published infection rates for primary penile implant surgery in the world.
He is also the most experienced Australian surgeon in Peyronie’s disease, and one of only a very small number of surgeons in the country doing length restoration surgery, with penile implantation, for Peyronie’s disease.
He also performs male sling surgery, in particular the ATOMS device, and artificial sphincter surgery for male incontinence. Dr. Love also continues to treat all aspects of general urology, with a particular interest in Minimally Invasive Surgical Therapies for BPH.
He has multiple publications on urology topics and has given numerous lectures and presentations to patient groups, urologists and primary care physicians, as well as demonstrating and teaching aspects of urologic prosthetic surgery, both nationally and internationally.
In conjunction with Dr. Darren Katz and Dr. Gideon Blecher, Dr. Love runs an International Fellowship programme in male infertility, prosthetic urology and Peyronie’s disease in Melbourne, Australia.
He is on the international prosthetic surgical training panel for Coloplast.
He is a member of Urological Society of Australia and New Zealand, and an international member of both the American Urologic Association and the Sexual Medicine Society of North America, as well as being a member of both the International Society for Sexual Medicine and the Asian Pacific Society for Sexual medicine, and is a member of the SIU and the EAU.
