Urology focuses on the health and function of the urinary system and the male reproductive system.
Your urinary system includes several organs that filter waste from your blood and excrete that waste out of your body. After your kidneys filter out the waste, called urine, it travels through the ureters and into the bladder for temporary storage. It exits the bladder through the urethra.
Urologists treat both the male and female urinary systems but only diagnose and treat the male reproductive system. The female reproductive system has its own medical specialty, called gynecology.
Vantage Medical Associates PC evaluates your urinary or reproductive system in great detail to make sure they have an accurate diagnosis before recommending and starting treatment. They ask for information about your symptoms and concerns and run tests to see how well your organs function.
The urology providers at Vantage Medical Associates PC can diagnose and treat:
Your risk of developing these conditions increases as you get older. But they can appear at any age. Keeping up with regular physical exams and screening tests, like prostate exams, can catch urinary and male reproductive problems as early as possible when they’re most treatable.
Urology services include diagnostic tests for urinary conditions and treatments that improve your urological and reproductive health. The team at Vantage Medical Associates PC offers the following services:
Diagnostic tests give your providers the information they need on your urinary function to make an informed diagnosis. Urodynamics tests, for example, show how well your bladder and sphincters within the system hold and release urine. Other tests include prostate biopsy, cystoscopy, and fertility tests.
Urology treatments improve the function of the organs and structures along your urinary tract. Options like UroLift® and Rezum™ water vapor therapy can move enlarged prostate tissue out of the way of your urethra.
Male reproductive issues like erectile dysfunction have a few different options for treatment. External shockwave treatment works well for erectile dysfunction, and quick, in-office procedures like vasectomy can help with family planning.
