What is Urology?
Urology is a branch of medicine that focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions related to the urinary tract system and male reproductive system. This includes the kidneys, ureters, bladder, urethra, prostate, and testicles.
Urologists are medical specialists who are trained to diagnose and treat a wide range of urological conditions, such as urinary tract infections, kidney stones, prostate cancer, bladder cancer, erectile dysfunction, and infertility.
Urology procedures may include surgical and non-surgical interventions such as cystoscopy, ureteroscopy, nephrectomy, prostatectomy, and vasectomy. Additionally, urologists may work in conjunction with other medical professionals, such as oncologists, to provide comprehensive care for patients with complex medical needs.
