Our urologists provide expertise and surgical treatment for urinary disorders of the male and female urinary tracts, as well as conditions of the male genital tract or reproductive system. Our urology specialists work closely with patients to develop individualized treatment plans that include both medical and surgical approaches to a wide range of urological problems. Specialists also give our patients the complete care available which allows for the best possible outcomes.
Some of our most common urological procedures include:
- Urolift procedure: Urolift System – A new, permanent treatment approach for prostate-related incontinence that lifts and holds the enlarged prostate so it no longer blocks the ability to urinate. This procedure does not require any cutting or removal of the prostate and requires no incisions. Find out today if you’re a candidate for surgery by making an appointment with a qualified program physician.
- Ureteroscopy and Lithotripsy for Kidney Stones: The ureter is the tube that connects the kidney to the bladder. A ureteroscope is a very thin-lit scope that enters the ureter to access the stone. This procedure does not involve any incision. In this procedure, the surgeon applies a laser beam on the stone to pulverize the stone into tiny pieces. This allows them to easily pass out of the body.
