Urology is a surgical specialty which deals with diseases of the male and female urniary tract and the male reproductive organs.
A urologist is a physician who is trained to evaluate the genitourinary tract, which includes the kidneys, urinary bladder and genital structures in men and women, and the prostate and testicles in men.
The urologist has the knowledge of and technological skills to evaluate the function of these structures, the disease that can effect them and both the medical and surgical skills to treat them. The urologist may use medical therapies, surgical procedures or a combination of both in order to treat the diseases of these organs to enhance the quality of life for that individual patient. Since these conditions of the genitourinary tract can effect men and women of all ages, as well as children, the urologist has the opportunity to take care of the entire population.
