About Dr. Jeannette Potts
After practicing at the Cleveland Clinic's Glickman Urological Institute for 15 years, Dr. Potts realized she needed to find a better way to provide more holistic care to men suffering from Urological Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndromes (UCPPS). During her tenure at the Cleveland Clinic she became more subspecialized, focusing her work in prostatitis, chronic pelvic pain, and psychosexual well-being. For years she also had an extremely busy no scalpel vasectomy practice, and will continue to provide sensitive and compassionate care for men contemplating this safe and popular form of permanent contraception.
Dr. Potts was named among the "best Urologists" in North East Ohio, by Cleveland Magazine.
She is the editor of two urological textbooks, published by Humana Press: Essential Urology and Genitourinary Pain and Inflammation.
She is the author of a third book, "Tango: Lesson for Life" published by Cleveland Clinic Press. (www.doctortango.net)
She has been a passionate collaborator with the NIH and the IPCN, to advance research and care of patients suffering from UCPPS. Her most recent collaboration, which involved 5 other investigators from across the country, led to the first favorable outcome of a NIH clinical trial addressing UCPPS. This trial showed that Physical Therapy brought significant relief to UCPPS patients.
She has published numerous articles in urology and family medicine and has given over 100 lectures on UCPPS and related topics, as an invited speaker at medical and urological conferences world-wide.
Dr. Potts is Assistant Clinical Instructor, on the faculty of Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine and University Hospitals of Cleveland.
