Urology is the field of medicine that focuses on the urinary tracts of males and females and on the reproductive system of males. In men, the urinary system overlaps with the reproductive system, and in women the urinary tract opens into the vulva.
Urologists specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of genitourinary conditions for male and female patients of all ages, such as kidney stones, disorders of the bladder, and incontinence. In addition, they specialize in conditions of the male reproductive system, including prostate cancer, vasectomies, microsurgical vasectomy reversal, and pediatric urology. When it comes to your urological needs, Memorial-affiliated specialists can care for you.
