Male urology, addresses conditions such as

Kidney stones
Bladder and urethral obstructions
Sexually transmitted diseases
Prostate gland disorders
Infertility and impotence
Erectile Dysfunction
Vasectomy and it's reversal

Kidney stones and bladder or ureteral obstructions pose serious problems and great pain for patients. Using fiberoptic techniques, urologists can diagnose and treat these blockages without making surgical incisions. Specialists are also highly skilled in the use of lithotripsy (shock waves which fragment hard-to-reach stones) and advanced techniques to access and eliminate difficult obstructions.

Urology now offers the most advanced treatment available for Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia, commonly called BPH or enlarged prostate. This condition usually occurs in men age 50 and over, and can cause painful bladder infections, frequent urination, and other problems. Treatment involves a wide range of therapies, including the latest surgical techniques.

Medical interventions to correct male erectile dysfunction have become highly sophisticated. Urologists provide a full range of testing and therapies, including hormonal treatment, penile injection therapy, penile prostheses and microvascular surgery to enhance blood flow.

Vasectomy reversal and other treatment for male infertility is available. Urologists and reproductive endocrinologists often work in conjunction to assess a couple’s needs, and take an aggressive approach to fertility problems.
