Urology Needs by Gender

Men’s Urologic Health

Men are staying healthier and living longer now than in decades past. This gain in life expectancy can be credited to men making better lifestyle choices- eating healthier and not smoking. Men have also become more informed in their medical health getting regular check-ups and preventative screenings. Your urological health is as important as your overall health. Fortunately, many of the health conditions and diseases that men face can be prevented or treated – if found early. Prostate cancer, BPH, and testicular cancer are all treatable when found early. Preventative screenings play a major role in increasing the survival rates of these conditions.

Women’s Urologic Health

The subspecialty of female urology is concerned with the diagnosis and treatment of those urinary tract disorders most prevalent in females. These include urinary incontinence and pelvic floor prolapse, voiding dysfunction, recurrent urinary tract infection, urethral syndrome and interstitial cystitis. Expert evaluation of these conditions includes a complete history and physical exam. Urodynamics (bladder function test) and imaging studies may be required to fully evaluate the urinary tracts. Additional bladder studies such as cystoscopy may be necessary. Our doctors can offer comprehensive evaluation and treatment plans for these female urologic disorders.
