A urologist is a physician who is trained to evaluate the genitourinary tract, which includes the kidneys, urinary bladder and genital structures in men and women, and the prostate and testicles in men.
Our urology specialists have the knowledge and technology to evaluate the function of these structures, the conditions and diseases that can affect them and their normal operation and the medical and surgical tools to optimize their function, treat the conditions and diseases of these organs and enhance an individual’s quality of life.
Since the conditions that effect the genitourinary tract can affect men and women of all ages as well as children, the urologist has the opportunity to take care of the entire population.
Our urology program offers a wide range of expertise and advanced diagnostic tools, treating urinary tract conditions from routine to complex. Our diagnostic and pathology services provide accurate and thorough results, allowing us to pinpoint problems and develop patient centric care plans.
Should surgery become necessary, we offer the most current surgical methods, including minimally invasive and robot-assisted procedures. These treatment options feature smaller incisions, reduced blood loss, decreased risk of infection, and significant reductions in recovery time.
