About urology

Urology has two functions: the urinary tract function, which addresses the organs that help you process waste and eliminate urine:

  • Kidneys
  • Ureter
  • Urethra
  • Bladder

And the male sexual function, which addresses the organs closely interrelated with the urinary tract:

  • Prostate
  • Penis
  • Testicles

Our experienced team of urologists bring extensive knowledge and leading care to the personal and sensitive conditions we treat.

Symptoms and conditions

  • Kidney stones, cancer and disorders
  • Congenital anomalies of the kidney
  • Prostate cancer
  • Benign enlargement of the prostate
  • Bladder cancer
  • Male infertility
  • Sexual dysfunction
  • Adrenal disorders
  • Male and female incontinence
  • Testicular cancer
  • Prosthetics
  • Urethral stricture disease
  • Sexually-transmitted diseases
  • Urinary infections/obstructions
  • Blockage of ureter
  • Ureteropelvic junction obstruction (UPJ): blockage at the junction of the ureter and kidney
  • Vesicoureteral reflux: abnormal flow of urine from the bladder back up to the ureter/kidneys
