Urology is the medical and surgical specialty that focuses on the urinary tracts of men and women and on the reproductive system of men. Physicians who specialize in the field of urology are called urologists and are trained to diagnose, treat, and manage patients with urological disorders. The organs included in the field of urology are the kidneys, adrenal glands, ureters, urinary bladder, urethra, and the male reproductive organs (testes, epididymis, vas deferens, seminal vesicles, prostate and penis).
The urinary and reproductive tracts are closely linked, and disorders of one often affect the other; therefore, many of the conditions managed in urology fall in the area of genitourinary disorders.
Urodynamic tests study the storage of urine within the bladder and the flow of urine through the lower urinary tract to the outside of the body. The tests are ordered by your physician if he or she suspects a problem in these areas. The test will show if the muscles and the nerves needed to urinate are working properly. Learn more.
