Urology Q & A

What is urology?

Urology is a branch of medicine that encompasses the preventive care, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases that affect male and female urinary tract — — and male reproductive system.

 

What are some of the most common urological health problems?

Urologic diseases can affect men, women, and children of all ages. Some of the most common urological health problems include:

  • Bladder cancer
  • Bladder prolapse
  • Interstitial cystitis
  • Overactive bladder
  • Pelvic floor dysfunction
  • Prostatitis, or swelling of the prostate gland
  • Enlarged prostate or benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH)
  • Male infertility
  • Blood in urine

 

Urinary incontinence

Urinary incontinence is a loss of bladder control that results in leakage of urine. Dr. Hakimian and Etwaru Dhanan recommend effective treatments for urinary incontinence, including lifestyle changes and surgery if necessary. All treatment options will depend on the severity of the condition.

Urinary tract infections

Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are caused by bacteria or viruses that invade the urinary tract. The primary symptoms are a burning sensation during urination and a frequent urge to urinate. Antibiotics can usually treat UTIs within a week.

Kidney and ureteral stones

Stones can develop in the kidneys and move to the ureter. These painful stones can block urine flow and while some resolve on their own, others call for medical or surgical procedures and treatments.

Erectile dysfunction

Erectile dysfunction (ED) is the inability to get or sustain an erection. It can be caused by many factors, including chronic illness, certain medications, and an enlarged prostate. Dr. Hakimian and Etwaru Dhanan will help you to determine the cause of this condition and to find the most effective treatment for it.
