Services we offer
While many urological conditions will exist in both men and women—such as bladder and kidney stones, urinary tract infections, and cancer—many conditions will vary between men and women. We offer services that treat conditions specific to such differences.
Our Urology department offers treatments specific to female conditions as well as male conditions, such as:
- Female urological treatments – For conditions where more thorough examination is required, we offer cystoscopy and ureteroscopy where a thin camera device is inserted into the urinary tract and used to find out more about any conditions that may exist there. We also perform surgeries for urinary incontinence, such as the urethral sling surgery which tightens the muscles that stop urine from leaking out
- Male urological treatments – For men suffering from benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), our surgeons are able to perform various procedures to reduce the size of the prostate through laser vaporization, microwave therapy, or CyberKnife® Therapy. We also offer the UroLift surgery to relieve pressure without tissue removal
