Urology deals with diseases of the male and female urinary tract and the male genitoreproductive system. The more common conditions that a urologist treats include:
- Bladder—tumors and incontinence
- Impotence—surgical and non-surgical therapies
- Kidney—stones, tumors and bleeding
- Prostate—cancer, non-cancerous enlargement and infections
- Testes—cancer and infertility
Like other surgical subspecialties, Urology has undergone tremendous evolutionary changes in the way these conditions are treated. At Boulder Medical Center we stay current with the latest technology that has madelUrology surgery less invasive and less hospital-oriented. The outpatient treatment of kidney stones (uteroscopy & shock wave lithotripsy) has virtually eliminated incisions to remove kidney stones. Innovations in the treatment of prostate enlargement (medications to relax or shrink the prostate, herbal treatments, laser and microwave) have reduced the number of surgeries performed in the United States by half. Expansion of surgical laparoscopy has allowed us to perform many procedures in the outpatient setting with minimal recovery compared with standard approaches. The field continues to evolve and the future looks promising for better treatments for impotence, infertility, and prostate cancer, and better diagnostic tests for all forms of genitourinary cancers.
