Urologists diagnose and treat diseases and conditions of the genitourinary system, which include the bladder, urinary tract, kidneys, genital structures in women and men, and the prostate and testicles in men.

You may be referred to a urologist if you experience pain or discomfort when urinating, have persistent urinary tract infections, blood in the urine, bladder problems including incontinence, prostate cancer, kidney stones, erectile dysfunction (impotence), kidney/renal cancer, an enlarged prostate (BPH), ureteropelvic junction (UPJ) obstruction, or pelvic floor disorders.

Urologists also perform surgery when necessary, including minimally invasive laser and laparascopic surgery, and endoscopic procedures.
