Urology is a surgical subspecialty that concentrates on the medical and surgical aspects of the male and female urinary tracts. Urologists are highly trained physicians that can evaluate, diagnose, and treat patients with urologic disorders.
For those patients with prostate cancer, the Urologist is often the first point of contact and the physician that will diagnose the disease.
Urology addresses everything from reproductive problems in male patients to urinary issues in either sex; surgeons may operate on the bladder, kidneys, ureter or genitals. At one extreme, full reconstruction of urinary or reproductive systems is an option. At the other, urology boasts a number of less invasive, technologically sophisticated methods to deal with delicate structures.
