Urology

Urology is a surgical sub-specialty that encompasses a wide range of both surgical and medical issues. Urologists specialize in diseases of the urinary tract and associated organs. Thus, they tackle an array of challenging problems including all forms of genitourinary oncology (renal cell CA, prostate CA, transitional cell CA, testicular tumors, etc.), benign prostatic hypertrophy, male sexual dysfunction, male infertility, pelvic and renal trauma, chronic bladder conditions, incontinence, voiding dysfunction, congenital GU defects, vesicourethral reflux, and perineal reconstruction. Urologists perform a wide range of surgical procedures including endoscopic, open, laparoscopic and robotic operations. Urology does participate in the early match process.
