Cornell Brady Urology Video Library

Cornell Brady Urology Studio was established in 1995. During these years, this studio has produced over 30 educational and instructive videos and DVD for male infertility related microsurgeries. Many of these multimedia tapes, DVD and videos were awarded The Best Urology Video Prize at the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) and The First Prize at the American Urologic Association (AUA) national meetings.

"This is the ideal way to illustrate how this operation is performed. Any experienced urologists or urologists-in-training can benefit greatly from this teaching series."
  - E. Darracott Vaughan, M.D.

"The video presentation is extremely well done with excellent visual presentation of the procedure. Congratulations on production of this material. It is a first rate presentation!"
  - Arnold M. Belker, M.D.

"These beautifully produced films are as close as you can get to being there without actually sitting next to an experienced microsurgeon in the operating room."
  - Zev Rosenwaks, M.D.
