What conditions does a urologist treat?

December 11, 2013

A urologist is a medical doctor that treats disorders of the urinary system for men and women, as well as the male reproductive system. This includes surgical and medical treatment. There is a wide variety of conditions ranging from low testosterone to urinary infections to cancer.  Men’s health conditions include low testosterone, erectile dysfunction, prostate enlargement leading to problems urinating, prostate infections, blood in the urine, testicular pain, circumcision, vasectomy, male infertility, and kidney stones.

A urologist also sees female patients for problems with frequent urinary tract infections, kidney stones, urinary leakage, pelvic organ prolapse, overactive bladder, and blood in the urine.

Cancers of the prostate, bladder, and kidneys are also treated by a urologist.
