Urology is a surgical specialty not only focusing on the disease of the male and female urinary tracts and male reproductive system but requiring a broad knowledge of how other system conditions such as diabetes and hypertension can impact urologic health. It’s a field that encompasses both comprehensive care of patients in the clinic setting and expert surgical intervention for a variety of urologic conditions. Utilizing advances in technology, our specialists are provided with the opportunity to deliver state-of-the-art care to our patients. The specialists in our Urology Department provide the full scope of services that this vast and varied field of medicine offers. Urologists treat a variety of sensitive issues ranging from family planning to cancer treatment. We are here for all needs associated with female urology, laparoscopy, erectile dysfunction, endoscopic stone cases, all urologic associated cancers and incontinence surgery.
Urinary incontinence is the involuntary leakage of urine and it can occur in both men and women. Our urology providers can offer treatment options that can correct or minimize the effects of urinary incontinence. Options include physical therapy, medications, minimally-invasive procedures, and surgery depending on the type and cause.
Kidney stones are small, mineral and acidic salt deposits that form inside your kidney. There are many causes of kidney stones, most often time happening when urine becomes concentrated allowing the mineral deposits to grow. Because there are many causes of kidney stones, there are also many kidney stone treatments. Our urology providers can determine the severity with a simple x-ray and can suggest a remedy, such as pain relievers or non-invasive procedures to blast away the kidney stones.
At Green Clinic our urologists use the latest in robotic surgery technology to offer a minimally invasive approach to surgery.
