What Is a Urological Doctor or Surgeon?

Urologists are physicians who specialize in diagnosing and treating conditions of the urinary tract. They work with both men and women and patients of all ages.

While they can also recommend other treatments to help patients cure or manage their conditions, urologists are surgeons. They are trained and qualified to perform surgical procedures involving the bladder, kidneys, ureters, urethra, adrenal glands, and male reproductive organs.

When Do Patients Need to See a Urology Specialist?

Many patients see their primary care physicians for symptoms involving the urinary tract. Often, these physicians refer their patients to a urological surgeon for a tricky diagnosis or a condition that might require surgical treatment.

Some of the more common conditions urologists evaluate and treat include:

  • Overactive bladder
  • Hematuria
  • Kidney stones
  • Bladder cancer
  • Prostate cancer
  • Testicular cancer
  • Reproductive issues
  • Erectile dysfunction

If you have any of the following symptoms, you could benefit from seeing a urology specialist:

  • Cloudy urine
  • Blood in urine
  • Painful urination
  • Difficulty urinating
  • Overactive bladder
  • Lower back, side, and groin area pain
  • Difficulty controlling the bladder
  • Recurring urinary tract infections
  • Male sexual dysfunction
  • Infertility

What Sets NCSH-Privileged Urologic Surgeons Apart from the Rest?

Undergoing any kind of surgery is a big decision but often necessary to get relief. If you are facing surgery for a urologic condition, your next choice is where to have the procedure performed. Options include general hospitals, general surgery centers, and physicians’ offices. A specialty hospital and urology surgery center offers a unique opportunity for savvy health care consumers to get the best surgical care.

Specially-Trained Urology Experts

While primary care physicians can treat a wide variety of conditions and symptoms, they do not have the depth of knowledge and experience of specialists.

The urologists with privileges at NCSH are a diverse group of experts in one discipline. They come from different training backgrounds, including urology and surgery fellowships and residencies. Our surgeons are among the best in the industry.

Work with Physicians Who Have Control Over Patient Care

Who knows better than a physician what’s better for their patients? NCSH is physician-owned, which means doctors and surgeons have decision-making power when it comes to how patients receive care. They have the ability to empower patients to make informed choices. When physicians are in control of medical facilities, patient safety is a top priority.

NCSH surgeons have access to surgical technologies that provide patients with the best outcomes. Staying up to date on innovations allows our surgeons to perform procedures better, with fewer complications and quicker recovery times.

Specialty Hospitals Offer Cost-Effective, Efficient Care

  • Oncology procedures to treat cancers of the urinary system
  • Vasectomy, a simple surgical procedure for male birth control
