Gender of Patient Can Honor Modesty For: Male

How This Doctor Accommodated Patient Modesty Requests: He honored a male patient's wishes for an all male team for hip surgery


I had a total joint replacement of my left hip. As the days approached for my surgery, I reminded my doctor of the past abuse history I encountered as an adolescent. This surgery went even better than the last one. I asked for as much of a male team as was possible. My doctor, Dr. Joseph Locker and his staff stepped up and scored a homerun for me. The hospital responded to my request for an all male team which is exactly what I got. As I was in the prep bay the OR charge nurse came in and reported to me that all members of my team were male, and that there were to be no students or observers. There were something like 7 people involved, and the manufacturers rep was male and also a licensed RN. As I was being prepped for the spinal epidural, I told everyone in earshot of my appreciation of their efforts. Their response was heartwarming to say the least. Everyone understood my situation completely. About that time the anesthesia took effect and I was out. I had 2 male nurses in PACU, and now on the floor both nurses are male. I had trouble peeing at first and the nurse helped me to a standing position which was successful. That couldn't have happened with a female nurse or tech. I might have had to take a catheter.
