UROLOGY

Urology is the branch of medicine that focuses on the urinary tracts of males and females, and on the reproductive system of males. Urology is closely related to, and in some cases overlaps with, the medical fields of oncology, nephrology, gynecology, andrology, pediatric surgery, gastroenterology, and endocrinology.

Female Urinary Tract  Male Urinary Tract

Urology combines management of medical problems such as urinary tract infections and benign prostatic hyperplasia, as well as surgical problems such as the surgical management of cancers, the correction of congenital abnormalities, and correcting stress incontinence.

Urologists are medical professionals in the field of urology who diagnose, treat, and manage patients with urological disorders.

UROLOGICAL DISORDERS

Urological disorders can happen in the following organs:

  • kidneys
  • ureters
  • urinary bladder
  • urethra
  • male reproductive organs (testes, epididymis, vas deferens, seminal vesicles, prostate and penis)
  • adrenal glands


SUB-SPECIALTIES OF UROLOGY

  • Endourology: Endourology deals with minimally invasive surgical procedures. As opposed to open surgery, endourology is performed using small cameras and instruments inserted into the urinary tract via the urethra enabling prostate surgery, surgery of tumors of the urothelium, stone surgery, and simple urethral and ureteral procedures.
  • Laparoscopy: Laparoscopic urology has replaced some open surgical procedures. Examples include robotic assisted surgery of the prostate, kidney, and ureter.
  • Urologic oncology: Urologic oncology concerns the surgical treatment of malignant genitourinary diseases such as cancer of the prostate, adrenal glands, bladder, kidneys, ureters, testicles and penis, and can be managed by either a urologist, an oncologist or both.
  • Neurourology: Neurourology concerns nervous system control of the genitourinary system, and of conditions causing abnormal urination.
  • Pediatric urology: Pediatric urology concerns urologic disorders in children.
  • Andrology: Andrology focuses on the male reproductive system and mainly concerns with male infertility, erectile dysfunction and ejaculatory disorders.
  • Reconstructive urology: Reconstructive urology reestablishes functionality of the genito-urinary tract.
  • Female urology: Female urology is a branch dealing with overactive bladder, pelvic organ prolapse, and urinary incontinence.
