Urology is Important to Both Men and Women

At some point in their lives, most men and women require the opinion of a urologist. These medical and surgical specialists are devoted to the diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the genito-urinary (GU) system. The GU system includes:

  • Kidneys

  • Ureters: The tubes that conduct urine from the kidneys to the bladder

  • Urinary bladder

  • Urethra: The canal leading from the bladder which serves to discharge urine

  • Prostate and genitalia (in men)

The common disease processes that urologists take care of include:

  • Kidneys

    • kidney stones

    • kidney cysts

    • kidney tumors

    • kidney cancer

  • Female urology

    • bladder infections
