Urology focuses on the urinary tracts of males and females, and on the reproductive system of males. Since the urinary and reproductive tracts are close together, disorders of one often affect the other. The organs covered by urology include the kidneys, ureters, urinary bladder, urethra, and the male reproductive organs (testes, epididymis, vas deferens, seminal vesicles, prostate and penis).
The urologists on the medical staff at Women & Children’s Hospital perform a variety of urologic surgeries, including minor cystoscopic procedures, as well as prostate and kidney procedures. They also offer advanced laparoscopic procedures, which are minimally invasive and often reduce recovery times.
Some of the urologic conditions we treat are:
- Benign prostatic hyperplasia
- Male Infertility
- Prostate Cancer
- Testicular Cancer
- Urinary Tract Infection (UTI)
- Kidney Stones
- Voiding (Urinating)
