What We Treat

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), there are approximately 19 million visits to office-based urologists each year in the United States. The major reason for most visits is to receive care for chronic and routine conditions, but because the rate of visits by men and women increases with age, it’s important to regularly see a specialist to monitor your urologic health and decrease your risk of experiencing serious conditions.

Some of the conditions we treat include:

  • Kidney stones
  • Urinary tract infections - more common among women
  • Overactive bladder - more common in women and the elderly
  • Incontinence
  • Sexual dysfunction
  • Infertility
  • Hematuria (blood in the urine)
  • Non-cancer prostate conditions, including benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH or enlarged prostate) and all types of prostatitis (inflammation of the prostate)
  • Interstitial cystitis - frequent urination, chronic bladder pain, more common among women
  • Pelvic organ prolapse - occurs when muscles and tissue that support a woman’s pelvic organs become weak, allowing organs to drop from their normal position
  • Bladder cancer
  • Prostate cancer
  • Kidney cancer
  • Testicular cancer
  • Men’s health issues (including enlarged prostate, erectile dysfunction, low testosterone)
