Our Medical Founders invented a new approach to helping Patients with Urethral Strictures caused by radiation therapy for prostate cancer. The Chee-Chauhan flap has attracted worldwide attention and involves growing a urethra from tissue taken from inside a Patient's mouth, and then transplanting it using an innovative surgical method to replace the damaged urethra.
On the back of this medical breakthrough, we have designed MURAC Health to help men via a more holistic approach to Patient care and specialised surgical techniques.
MURAC Health is based in Australia, with multiple practices to cater to local and international Patients.
