Urology is the practice of medicine that treats problems of the urinary tract and system that arise due to disease or dysfunction. Urologists treat males and females but often specialize in the male reproductive system.

Specialized treatment options

Aquablation therapy

Aquablation therapy is a minimally invasive, incision-free treatment option that uses water delivered by the precision of a robot to destroy targeted tissue and treat symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), or enlarged prostate.

Transurethral ultrasound ablation

Transurethral ultrasound ablation is an incision-free procedure used to destroy cancerous tissue within the prostate. Using high-frequency sound waves delivered through the urethra, the sound waves are delivered directly to the targeted tissue which is then heated until the point of destruction.

Urinary tract infection treatment

Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are the most common infections urologists treat. UTIs develop when bacteria enter the urinary tract through the urethra and multiply in the bladder. They involve the bladder, kidneys, ureters or urethra and typically occur in adults. Women are at greater risk for both of these types of infections due to their reproductive anatomy.

The most common UTIs include cystitis and urethritis. If urinary tract infections go untreated, they can cause serious medical complications, including permanent kidney damage or sepsis. If you have any of the symptoms below, schedule a consultation with a urologist today for a UTI test.

Symptoms of cystitis:

  • Blood in urine
  • Frequent urges to urinate
  • Painful urination
  • Abdominal Pain

Symptoms of urethritis:

  • Burning with urination
  • Cloudy urine
  • Discharge
  • Urine has an odd odor

Incontinence care

Urinary incontinence is characterized by a temporary loss of bladder control. The severity of symptoms can range from occasional leaking to uncontrollable urges to urinate. There are many potential causes for urinary incontinence, like diabetes, menopause or pregnancy. If you are experiencing symptoms of urinary incontinence, you are not alone.

Before visiting your doctor, be prepared to discuss your medical history and symptoms. A physical exam will also be performed to determine the severity of your condition. A doctor will usually recommend the following tests before coming up with a treatment plan:

  • Keeping a journal of symptoms and liquid intake
  • Pelvic ultrasound
  • Urinalysis
  • Urodynamic testing

Some possible treatment options include:

  • Lifestyle changes
  • Prescriptions
  • Surgery
  • Absorbent products
