Urology Q & A

What is urology?

Urology is a specialized branch of medicine that diagnoses and treats conditions that affect the urinary system ― the kidneys, bladder, ureters, and urethra. Urologists also manage health conditions that affect male sex organs, including the penis, testes, scrotum, and prostate.

Touro University Medical Group has a team of physicians who work together to ensure patients get all the medical services they need to manage their health. That includes specialists in urology.

What conditions does urology treat?

Urology treats any condition that affects the structure or function of the urinary system, as well as conditions that affect the health of the male reproductive organs. 

Some of the common conditions the urologists at Touro University Medical Group treat include:

  • Chronic and recurrent urinary tract infections (UTIs)
  • Bladder and kidney infections
  • Urinary incontinence and other voiding dysfunctions
  • Blood in the urine (hematuria)
  • Kidney, ureteral, and bladder stones
  • Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) or enlarged prostate
  • Interstitial cystitis
  • Erectile dysfunction (ED) and vasectomy
  • Pelvic organ prolapse
  • Cancer of the kidneys, bladder, prostate, penis, and testes

If you have symptoms of a urological condition, do not hesitate to visit Touro University Medical Group.

When do I need urology?

You need urology services at Touro University Medical Group if you have symptoms that suggest you have problems with your urinary tract, such as pain during urination, a change in urination (frequency, control), or pelvic pain. You also need to see a urologist if you have blood in your urine.

Men benefit from urology services when they’re struggling with impotence or infertility, or an enlarged prostate.

Our team at Touro University Medical Group conducts a thorough evaluation when you come in with concerns about a urological condition. We review your symptoms and medical history and perform a physical exam.

Our team may also request diagnostic tests to confirm or rule out a diagnosis, such as a urinalysis, blood work, or imaging like an ultrasound or a CT scan.

What types of urology treatments can I expect to receive?

Urology treatments depend on your diagnosis. Your treatment plan may include medical or surgical interventions. The team at Touro University Medical Group talks to you about your diagnosis and treatment options, and together, you develop a plan of action. 

Lifestyle changes are also recommended for some conditions, like drinking more water if you’re prone to chronic UTIs and regular physical activity for ED.
