Urology

Our urologists manage both complex and routine urologic conditions. Our urologic surgeons perform complex oncology surgeries as well as reconstructive urologic procedures.

Urologic Conditions We Treat

  • Urinary tract infections
  • Sexual dysfunction
  • Kidney stone disease
  • Male and female urinary incontinence
  • Infertility
  • Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia—an enlarged prostate, which happens to most men as they grow older and makes urinating difficult
  • Peyronie's disease—a lump, or plaque, which forms on the penis. It can become painful, causing curvature with erections.

Urologic Cancers We Treat

  • Bladder cancer
  • Kidney cancer
  • Prostate cancer
  • Testicular cancer

Diagnostic Urologic Procedures

  • Cystoscopy—a minimally invasive procedure, using a scope, to investigate the bladder and urinary tract
  • Hematuria evaluation—diagnostic workup for blood in the urine

Urologic Treatments and Procedures

  • Percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCL) procedures to remove kidney stones using a minimally invasive approach
  • Percutaneous Lithotripsy, a procedure that uses ultrasound waves to break up kidney stones in order to remove them
  • TURP/ "Button" Procedure, a surgical procedure used to treat BPH (Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia)
  • TURPs—transurethral resection of the prostate, for prostate cancer
  • Vasectomy and vas reversal
  • Holmium Laser Ablation of the Prostate for BPH—a minimally invasive laser treatment for BPH
  • Interstim Neuromodulation for Overactive Bladder—using a small wire, your doctor can stimulate the nerves in the lower spine which may help an irritated or overactive bladder. Our doctors have a special interest in using this treatment for male and urinary incontinence and other related conditions.
  • Male penile implants and sexual dysfunction treatments
