Urology is a field of medicine that studies diseases of the urinary system, namely the kidneys, adrenal glands, bladder, urethra, and genitals.
It is a surgical discipline, that is, it is mainly engaged in surgical treatment.
Since urology combines related specialties, a urologist can specialize in receiving women (gynecologist-urologist) and men (andrologist urologist). Also separate specializations are pediatric urologist, urologist-gerontologist (accepts elderly people) and urologist-oncologist.
Very often we receive requests for treatment of prostate cancer with the help of the Da Vinci Robot. Diagnosis of prostate cancer is also very popular.
What treats a male urologist
Men should consult a urologist for the following problems:
- Urolithiasis disease
- Enuresis (urinary incontinence)
- erectile disfunction
At the reception, the urologist visually examines the condition of the penis, scrotum, and inguinal lymph nodes. Perhaps a rectal examination of the prostate gland. I recommend that the patient undergo blood and urine tests, in the future, if necessary, referral to ultrasound, MRI and other diagnostic methods is possible.
What treats a female urologist
- Bladder inflammation (cystitis)
- Urethritis (inflammation of the urethra)
- Urinary incontinence
- Renal failure
The appointment of a female urologist is almost no different from that of a gynecologist: the patient is examined on a gynecological chair for a rash, inflammation and neoplasm, an ultrasound scan and various tests are performed.
What a pediatric urologist treats
- Acute urethritis
- Acute and chronic cystitis
- Phimosis (narrowing of the foreskin)
- Cryptorchidism (undescended testicle in the scrotum)
- Hernia and genital malformations
