Urology is the surgical specialty that focuses on the urinary tracts of males and females, and on the reproductive system of males. Urologists are trained to diagnose, treat, and manage patients with disorders of the kidney, ureter, bladder, urethra, prostate and testis. Urology combines non-surgical management of problems such as urinary tract infections and benign prostatic hyperplasia, as well as surgery for conditions such as cancer, stones, congenital abnormalities and stress incontinence.

Q: What should I expect from my consultation with my urologist? At your first visit, you will probably explain your urological problem with your urologist. He or she may recommend further tests or treatments. There are a number of common tests that are used and most can be done in the rooms in 802 Mair Street or one of the hospitals. Treatment may be with medication, surgery or both. Sometimes, a few may be required before a diagnosis is made or the problem is treated. Sometimes, long-term treatment is needed and you may see your urologist again and again for many years. Occasionally, you may be referred to another specialist within the practice or in another practice.
