Urologic disorders and conditions we treat

Our urinary doctors treat a wide range of urologic disorders and diseases, including:

Benign prostatic hyperplasia
Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is a condition where the prostate gland becomes enlarged. BPH can block the flow of urine from the bladder, causing infections of the urinary tract and discomfort during urination. If you do have BPH, our specialists will work with you to resolve your symptoms and restore your prostate health.

Erectile dysfunction (ED)
More than 30 million men in the U.S. experience ED, which is the inability to get or maintain an erection. ED can usually be treated with medication. However, it can sometimes be a symptom of an underlying condition, such as a testosterone deficiency. That means it's important to have a conversation with your doctor if you have symptoms of ED. We understand that the conversation may not be easy. ED is a condition that can affect your confidence and be uncomfortable to discuss. That's why our urologists are sensitive to your feelings and take the time to listen to you to determine the root cause of your ED. By understanding the cause of ED, we can suggest the most appropriate treatment to restore your health and confidence.

Kidney stones
A kidney stone is made of materials, such as protein and minerals, that are found in urine. These stones pass through the urinary tract and can become lodged, causing extreme pain and discomfort. Kidney stones vary in size. The size of your kidney stone will help us determine which treatment will resolve your symptoms and help you pass the stone(s).

Pelvic organ prolapse
Pelvic organ prolapse refers to a condition in which the muscles and tissues in the pelvic area become weak, no longer fully supporting the pelvic organs. This can be caused by a variety of health issues, such as pregnancy and childbirth, obesity and chronic cough. We offer a wide range of treatments for pelvic organ prolapse, depending on the organ(s) affected. Often, our specialists are able to correct prolapse with minimally invasive techniques. Prolapse can occur in men and women, but it is more common in women. For this reason, we also offer female pelvic organ prolapse treatment through our gynecology program.

Prostate cancer
Prostate cancer occurs in men when cancer cells are present in the prostate gland, which is located between the bladder and penis. This gland is responsible for producing fluids that support the nourishment and transportation of sperm, and the urethra runs through the middle of it. If prostate cancer is detected, our hospitals provide comprehensive cancer care. This includes advanced treatments and support resources to help you throughout your journey — from diagnosis and treatment through survivorship.

Prostate cancer screening
In its early stages, prostate cancer often presents no symptoms. This is why prostate cancer screening is an important step to maintaining your prostate health. With prostate cancer screening, we can detect the disease when the cancer is in its early stages and more easily treated. Prostate cancer screening options we offer include a digital rectal exam (DRE) and prostate-specific antigen (PSA) test. The prostate cancer screening guidelines of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) suggest men of average risk begin discussing annual screenings with their provider at 55 years old. However, we recommend men talk with their doctor about their individual risk factors for prostate cancer and when they should begin screenings.

Testosterone deficiency
Testosterone deficiency occurs when your body does not produce enough testosterone. Although more common in men, a testosterone deficiency can occur in both men and women. Common symptoms of this condition include:
