Dr. Brian Christine
Dr. Brian Christine earned his MD degree from Emory University in Atlanta, GA. He then completed his Residency in Urology at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. Following Residency, he joined a large private practice Urology group, Urology Centers of Alabama, located in the green, rolling hills of Birmingham, AL. Dr. Christine has lived and practiced in Alabama for over 30 years; he serves the people of Alabama and is proud to do so. Initially Dr. Christine practiced general urology treating urologic cancers, kidney stones, and female urology in addition to men’s health.
However, he became especially interested in prostate cancer survivorship,men’s sexual health, and prosthetic urology after his first five years in practice. Dr. Christine made the commitment to pursue excellence in these fields and sought out specialized training, spending time with recognized leaders in the field operating, observing, and learning. Today, his practice is exclusively centered on erectile dysfunction, Peyronie’s disease (curvature of the penis with an erection), premature ejaculation, low testosterone, and the treatment of sexual dysfunction and urinary incontinence following radical prostatectomy. Dr. Christine’s practice is recognized here in the United States and internationally as a true Center of Excellence. He has treated patients from throughout the U.S. and from beyond his country’s boarders. Dr. Christine’s surgical volume is among the highest in the world; the number of surgeries he performs annually for erectile dysfunction, to correct penile curvature, and to treat male stress urinary incontinence place his skill at the highest level. He is a sought after expert and routinely is asked by medical device companies to give his opinions and insights to help improve existing prosthetic implants and develop future devices.
A passionate educator, Dr. Christine hosts urologists from the United States and the world over who travel to Birmingham to observe him in the operating room. With the onset of the Covid pandemic, because surgeon travel to Birmingham was severely limited, Dr. Christine pioneered online and “virtual” training of surgeons quickly becoming recognized as a leading expert in these educational efforts. He has authored or coauthored articles on surgical treatment, he lectures as an invited specialist, and he travels extensively to demonstrate surgical techniques. As a member of the American Urological Association, Sexual Medicine Society of North America, the International Sexual Medicine Society, the European Association of Urology, and the International Continence Society, Dr. Christine works to contribute to the knowledge of others.
Dr. Christine’s office staff is compassionate, highly motivated, and determined to provide the very best patient care. His surgical team is outstanding. Consistency in a surgical team is critical to successful outcomes but rarely happens. Dr. Christine’s surgical team is consistent, meaning they are the same nurses and surgical assistants on every case; this translates to shorter operative times and most importantly, to low infection rates.
