Urology Department

Urology is a surgical specialty that treats diseases involving the male and female urinary tracts, as well as the male reproductive systems.
Urologists are healthcare specialists that specialize in urology and are educated to diagnose, detect, and treat this group of illnesses and diseases.
Urologists can treat problems involving the kidneys, ureters (tubes linking the kidneys to the bladder), adrenal glands, the bladder, and the urethra (the tube that passes urine out of the body from the bladder). A urologist may also treat problems with the testes, epididymis, vas deferens, seminal vesicles, prostate, and penis in men. Urology include the medical treatment of problems such as urinary tract infection and prostate enlargement, as well as the surgical treatment of bladder cancer, prostate cancer, kidney stones, and stress incontinence.
Urologists may need to collaborate with oncologists or radiotherapists in the treatment of specific illnesses, such as urinary tract cancer. They may also need to work with nephrologists, who treat kidney ailments, gynecologists, who treat female reproductive issues, and endocrinologists, who treat endocrine system and hormone abnormalities. Urologists may also cooperate with pediatric surgeons and colorectal surgeons.
