General Urology

General urology covers a wide range of urologic conditions commonly experienced by both male and female patients.

Kidneys

The kidneys are paired organs located within the abdominal cavity on either side of the spine. They are responsible for the filtering of blood and function by removing waste, which is then carried to the bladder through tubes known as the ureters.

Conditions

  • Kidney Stones
  • Kidney Cancer
  • Kidney Infection
  • Kidney Obstruction
  • Hydronephrosis
  • Ureter Obstruction and Stricture
  • Ureter Cancer
  • Ureteropelvic Junction Obstruction

Chronic kidney disease causes more deaths than breast cancer or prostate cancer and affects more than 37 million people in the U.S.

Bladder

The bladder is a hollow organ that rests on the pelvic floor. Urine that is excreted by the kidneys is deposited in the bladder through the ureters. The bladder then dispels urine via the urethra. Conditions of the bladder can be the source of pain and discomfort as well as urinary incontinence, or the inability to control the flow of urine. Such conditions include bladder infections, interstitial cystitis, stress incontinence, urge incontinence, as well as bladder stones and tumors.

Conditions

  • Incontinence
  • Overactive Bladder
  • Urinary Tract Infection
  • Bladder Infection
  • Voiding Dysfunction
  • Interstitial Cystitis
  • Bladder Cancer
