Welcome at the Ageing Male Clinic

home001 The increasingly ageing population has resulted in the reversal of the population pyramid. Our affluent society is characterised by an increasing number of active older people, which causes very complex economic, technological, organisational and social challenges.

The growing population group of over-50s is also looking for more quality of life. However, from the age of 40 to 50 it is possible that men are experience several conditions at the same time. It is therefore very important to create a comprehensive profile with risk factors based on the prognosis and wellbeing of the ageing man. This can be achieved through an interdisciplinary approach: the interaction between first-line medicine and the urologist and the cooperation of a number of consultants (cardiovascular revalidation, sexology, endocrinology, etc.).

The Ageing Male Clinic is organised according to a concept of healthy ageing in line with a European project* that prioritises ageing research in the European Union and promotes a balanced, comprehensive, multidisciplinary approach to the problems of an ageing population.
