Abraham Morgentaler, MD, FACS

Dr. Abraham Morgentaler is one of the great pioneers in men’s health over the last 30 years. His research on testosterone – first in lizards, and then in humans – has revolutionized biological concepts and changed medical practice. He is the leading global expert in the area of testosterone and prostate cancer. 

Dr. Morgentaler is an Associate Professor of Surgery (Urology) at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and Harvard Medical School in Boston. In 1999, Dr Morgentaler opened the first comprehensive men’s health center in the US, Men’s Health Boston. He is an author of four books for the public, has published more than 200 scientific articles, and appeared on numerous national television and radio shows and podcasts.


Dr. Morgentaler has published four best-selling books for the public. His first, The Male Body, is a primer on how the male anatomy works.

The Viagra Myth was published five years after the introduction of the revolutionary pill, and through patient stories examined the intricacies of male sexuality, and how ideas about a man’s own sexuality influenced a man’s hopes and dreams.

Testosterone For Life is the best-selling book of all time on testosterone.  It explains what testosterone is, what happens when testosterone levels decline, and the risks and benefits of treatment.  The book was written for the public, but has been a primer for many physicians!

Finally, The Truth About Men and Sex (first published in hardcover as Why Men Fake It), is an intimate look behind the closed door of Dr. Morgentaler’s exam room.  Dr. Morgentaler applies his keen insight to bear on the remarkable world of human sexuality, sharing one remarkable story after another, and their psychological implications.  


Dr. Morgentaler has been a highly sought-after speaker for both medical and lay audiences. His keynote address titled “Testosterone, Science, and Human Dignity” has earned standing ovations at numerous medical conferences, but is also well suited for the public.

Dr. Morgentaler’s most recent book, The Truth About Men and Sex, provides a fun and interesting starting point to discuss the intersection of sexuality, relationships, and the nature of being.

Dr. Morgentaler has a large library of videotaped talks on various aspects of male sexuality, particularly the use of testosterone therapy in men.
