Urology is the medical specialty concerned with the function and disorders of the male and female urinary tract system and the male reproductive organs. Physicians who specialize in urology are called urologists and are concerned with the normal functioning of the urinary tract system and male reproductive organs and any changes that affect these systems.
The diseases and disorders of the urinary tract and reproductive organs can affect multiple places in the body including the kidneys, adrenal glands, ureters, urinary bladder and the urethra. Some of the more common conditions urologists treat are:
Enlarged Prostate or BPH
Cancers of the Urinary Tract
Infertility in Men
Urinary Incontinence and Overactive Bladder
Sexual Dysfunction in Men
Urinary Tract Infections
