Why I Love Urology! Treating and Curing Urological Conditions


 

Urology is a medical field that deals in the diagnosis, treatment, curing and management of conditions that affect the male and female urinary system and the male reproductive organs. It is a dedicated branch of medicine and the physicians who are specialists in this field are called urologists.

The medical disorders treated by urologists include those that affect the kidneys, ureters, bladder, urethra, prostate, epididymis, testis, seminal vesicle, scrotum and penis. Common conditions include urinary incontinence, ejaculation problems, erectile dysfunction, vasectomy, cryptorchidism (undescended testes), vesicoureteral reflux and genitourinary cancers such as prostate cancer, cancer of the kidneys, bladder, penis and testicles.

Urologists love their jobs because it gives them opportunities to provide patients with life saving treatments as well as quality of life medical care. Conditions such as cancer of the testes, if diagnosed early, can be treated to give the patient a longer life span and one free of discomfort or pain during intimacy.

It is important to note that the work of a urologist also involves educating the general public on effective prevention practices. A good example is prostate cancer, an illness which has been on the rise recently. Research has identified potential causes, prevention and treatment. This knowledge has been shared widely by urologists. Men are now encouraged to use testing for early diagnosis. If caught in the primary stages, prostate cancer can be cured before it progresses to stage IV cancer or metastasizes to other parts of the body. The same applies to other conditions such as erectile dysfunction, a topic most men prefer to avoid. Despite the reluctance to acknowledge this medical problem, in recent years the public has been receiving education from the experts on the many causes and treatments of erectile dysfunction.

Urology is a field that specializes in treating urological physical ailments and the emotional concerns that accompany them. Each patient presents with different needs and urologists who love the work they do understand that. They take into account the presenting factors of each patient, their needs and concerns, and then tailor the consultations, medical treatment and follow up to suit the unique needs of each patient. Any person with concerns about a potential urological problem should pay a visit to a qualified specialist for a check-up. The experienced and caring professionals of the Advanced Urology Institute would like to remind us that the earlier a problem is diagnosed, the more successful the treatment will be.
