Common Conditions Treated by Urologists:
- BPH- Benign prostatic hyperplasia.
- Kidney/ Uretery stones.
- Urinary incontinence.
- Overeactive bladder.
- Urinary tract infections.
- Urinary tract cancers like kidney/ prostrate/ testes/ bladder cancers.
- Infetility in men/ to some extent also in women .
- Interstitial cystitis.
- Sexual dysfunction like erectile dysfunction.
If the above conditions and some more, occur frequently with severe related symptoms, then it is better to approach an urologist, instead of common medical practitioners, who are well versed with general conditions and your family history. Often they recommend such recurring/ severe problems, to the urologist, because, an urologist is a highly specialized practitioner. If not diagnosed at initial stages, then it may lead to increased complications. A urologist usually works through a hospital.
Immediately after the physical examination during your first visit, the urologist recommends certain diagnostic tests. Then he analyses the test result without delay, and an expert, experienced urologist will accurately diagnose your condition. He will also plan any additional examinations if required, and then finalize on the best possible treatment.
It is often recommended to visit an urologist for urinary system related problems, as only the expert advice is the best advice.
