Diagnosis & Treatment

Diagnosis of Urological Conditions

During an initial appointment, our doctors ask patients to provide a medical history and discuss the full history of their symptoms. This is followed by diagnostic testing to obtain a detailed diagnosis. Diagnostic testing may include:

  • Measurement of the flow of urine (urine flow rate)
  • Urodynamic testing to examine the emptying of the bladder
  • Examination of the bladder and prostate with a telescopic camera
  • Male fertility testing
  • Once the condition is correctly identified, physicians discuss medical and surgical treatment options with the patient.

Treatment of Urological Conditions

Medical or surgical treatment options are available for urologic conditions. Our team is experienced in performing a number of advanced procedures to treat urologic disease, including:

  • Adrenalectomy: Surgery to remove an adrenal gland due to a tumor.
  • Cryotherapy: Also known as cryoablation, involves freezing diseased tissue to destroy it.
  • Cystoscopy: : A procedure in which a small tube with a camera is inserted through the urethra to view the bladder. In some cases, cystoscopy can be used to remove a bladder tumor.
  • Cytoreductive nephrectomy: Removal of a full kidney or part of a kidney in patients with metastatic kidney cancer (kidney cancer that has spread).
  • Cystectomy: Using a minimally invasive, robotic surgical approach to remove the bladder. This procedure can be used in some cases of bladder cancer.
  • Prostatectomy: Using a minimally invasive, robotic surgical approach to remove the prostate. This procedure is offered in some cases of prostate cancer.
  • Orthotopic neobladder reconstruction: A procedure to divert urine after the bladder has been removed due to bladder cancer.
  • Urethral reconstruction: Surgery to treat urethral stricture, or narrowing of the urethra (the tube that carries urine, as well as semen in men).
  • Bladder neck suspension: Surgery used to reposition a woman’s bladder, offered in some cases of urinary incontinence.
  • Sphincter prosthesis: Placement of an artificial sphincter, offered in some cases of urinary incontinence.
  • Penile implant: Placement of a device that fits in the penis and testes to treat erectile dysfunction.
  • Water vaporization for enlarged prostate: Also known as Rezum, a non-invasive way to treat benign prostate hypertrophy.
  • Urolift: A non-invasive surgical procedure that utilizes tiny implants to lift and hold the enlarged prostate tissue out of the way so that it no longer blocks the urethra.
  • Minimally invasive, laparoscopic surgery and robotic assisted surgeries for indicated patients for adrenalectomy, nephrectomy, prostatectomy, and radical cystectomy.
