Urologists are physicians who specialize in diagnosing and treating problems of the urinary tract—in both men and women—as well as the male reproductive system. They address health issues affecting the bladder, urethra and ureters, adrenal glands and kidneys, as well as the penis, testes, prostate, seminal vesicles and epididymis. Because urologists provide care for people of all ages, and for conditions that may be quite complex, they work closely with many other medical specialists, including gynecologists, internists, pediatricians, geriatricians and oncologists.
Some of the more common conditions treated by urologists include:
- Bladder Conditions
- Female Incontinence
- Pelvic Prolapse
- Prostate Disease
- Kidney Stones
- Male Infertility
