Urology is a health topic that covers some delicate, perhaps difficult-to-discuss, yet critical parts and functions of both the male and female bodies — namely the urinary tract in both sexes and reproductive organs in males. Northeast Medical Group urologists are medically and surgically trained to diagnose and treat a wide range of routine and complex urological disorders. They also educate their adult and pediatric patients about preventive care of these vital systems.
Generally, urology deals with the bladder, urethra, ureters, kidneys, adrenal glands, epididymis, penis, seminal vesicle, prostate and testes. Conditions commonly treated by urologists include infection, inflammation, obstruction, dysfunction, injury or hormonal imbalance involving any of these structures.
Conditions specific to men include erectile dysfunction, male infertility, enlarged prostate and testicular cancer.
Female urology involves the diagnosis and treatment of urinary tract disorders most prevalent in women. These include pelvic floor prolapse, voiding dysfunction and interstitial cystitis.
Pediatric urology deals with disorders among infants, children and adolescents. Common problems in this age group involve disorders of the urinary tract and reproductive organs, such as urinary tract infection, bladder dysfunction, bed wetting and congenital anomalies.
The breath of education and experience required of urologists grants them knowledge of internal medicine, pediatrics, gynecology and other specialties needed to address various clinical problems. Certain urological illnesses and diseases may involve surgery. Our board certified urologists have expertise in traditional, minimally invasive and state-of-the-art robotic surgical procedures and innovations.
