Urologist

Physicians can be categorized according to the age group of the patient and organ systems they treat. And if the problem manifests as problem in urination then a person can seek consult from a medical doctor who specializes in both the male and female urinary tract known as urologist.

Definition

Medical doctors whose area of expertise directs towards diagnosing and treating conditions influencing the male and female urinary system are called urologists. Of course, this medical specialty may also be categorized by the gender of the patients being treated since urology, as a counterpart of gynecology, is a discipline that deals with the problems concerning the male reproductive system.

We now know that urologists care for the urinary system of both sexes. Then, we should also discuss the organs that are dealt with by these physicians. These are the adrenal gland, kidney, ureter, urinary bladder, and the urethra. Aside from these, urologists also treat conditions that affect the reproductive organs of the male such as the testes, vas deferens, epididymis, prostate gland, seminal vesicle, and the penis.

Types of Patients

Urologists are devoted to the conditions that target the urinary tract and they treat these using either noninvasive or surgical interventions. Some of the urological problems are benign prostatic hyperplasia (conditions affecting the men) and urinary tract infections. There are other diseases that can be treated primarily through surgery and one of these is cancer. Urologists also fix congenital abnormalities and they also manage stress incontinence.

Evidently, there are other more serious conditions that affect the urinary tract and many people are actually suffering from these. Some of the most debilitating urological diseases are: kidney stones, interstitial cystitis, polycystic kidney disease, and end-stage renal disease or ESRD.
