Urology

noname_1614106285663

Most people take for granted the ability to urinate, process the foods we eat and drink and to reproduce, which is why it can be concerning when suddenly something isn’t quite right. As we age, problems with urinary and reproductive systems can become more prevalent. While most of the problems are easily treated, sometimes the symptoms will require further analysis and testing from a urologist.  

Urologists treat conditions involving the urinary tract and the male reproductive system. This includes any part of the urinary system (kidneys, ureters, bladder, urethra, adrenal glands) and all parts of the male and female reproductive systems.
