Urology is the surgical specialty that deals with medical conditions of the male and female urinary tract and male reproductive organs. Among the disorders that are treated by urologistsare those of the kidneys, ureters, the bladder, urethra and the adrenal glands. In men, conditions of the prostate, testes, penis and other organs are treated. Many of the conditions treated are hereditary, genetic or age-related. Because of the number of organs involved and the interrelation between them, diagnosis can often be difficult and a clear understanding of the nature of the problem requires a high degree of specialization and experience.
The decision to go in for medication or surgery to treat a condition will depend on the nature and severity of the problem. Urology is a fast evolving field of medicine and knowledge of the latest developments in treatment and surgery are critical factors in a patient’s recovery.
