8 ways we can help you
1. Prostate Disorders/BPH – Prostatitis is an inflammation or infection of the prostate. It can affect men at any age and can cause urgency, frequency, and pain with urination as well as discomfort in the groin, prostate area, or back. With BPH, the prostate enlarges, causing pressure on the urethra, similar to clamping a garden hose. The most common symptoms of an enlarged prostate include weak urine stream, intermittency, difficulty beginning urination and occasionally, the feeling of incomplete emptying.
2. Prostate, Kidney & Bladder Cancer – Prostate cancer is the most common type of cancer in men over the age of 50, whereas kidney cancer is quite rare. We have several methods for treating these cancers, including radiation, surgery, hormone therapy, watchful waiting/active surveillance, and advanced drug therapies that slow or prevent the disease from progressing further. We offer surgical and medical options for the treatment of bladder, prostate, and kidney cancer.
3. Kidney Stones & UTIs – Kidney stones are calcifications that form in the kidneys. These stones can travel down the tubes that drain the kidneys, called the ureters. We offer many treatment options, including extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL), ureteroscopy, and percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL). UTIs (urinary tract infections) are bacterial infections that mostly affect the bladder and urethra but can also involve the kidneys or get into the bloodstream.
4. Incontinence & Urinary Retention – Urinary stress incontinence causes involuntary loss of urine during laughing, coughing, sneezing, or other types of physical stress. Overactive bladder is a condition in which the patient feels the frequent strong urge to urinate. Patients with urge incontinence get a strong desire to urinate but leak urine before they get to the bathroom.
5. Male Sexual Health
- Erectile dysfunction – Erectile dysfunction, also known as impotence, is the inability to achieve and maintain erections sufficient for intercourse. Approximately 15 million to 30 million men in the United States experience chronic erectile dysfunction.
- Testosterone therapy – Treatment for men with low testosterone, or low-T, to help them regain their sexual desire and function.
6. Vasectomy – Is an in-office procedure in which the urologist surgically interrupts the connection of the vas deferens for the purpose of sterilization. We are experts in this procedure.
7. Pediatric Urology – Bedwetting, also known as enuresis, is very common in children. It is estimated that about 5 million to 7 million children in the United States wet their beds at night. In addition to helping families overcome both daytime and nighttime urinary issues, we evaluate and treat children with urinary reflux, kidney stones, UTIs, undescended testicles, epispadias and hypospadias (a congenital condition in which the opening of the urethra is on the underside of the penis) and we perform male circumcision.
8. Laparoscopic & Robotic Surgery – We use minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery procedures with less scarring and faster recovery plus robotic surgery for greater precision with many procedures for urological conditions.
