What is urology and what are its sub specialties?
Urology is the medical-surgical specialty that deals with the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of morphological diseases of the kidneys, urinary tract and retro-peritoneum that affect both sexes, as well as diseases of the male genital tract, regardless of age.
In the anatomical field, it includes the kidney and its adjacent structures, the urinary tract and the male genital apparatus, also addressing the dysfunctions of the following organs and structures:
-Structures of the pelvic floor
Urology can take care, from a surgical, medical and comprehensive point of view, of all the ailments in its nosological (diseases, clinical signs, syndrome and symptoms) and anatomical (organs, systems and devices) area of influence.
What does a urologist do?
The urologist offers a surgical and medical vision of the diseases of the urinary system of men and women, paying special attention to the genital system of men.
He knows perfectly the nosology, clinical expression, etiology, anatomy, pathophysiology, physiology, diagnostic recognition methods, surgical procedures of the organs, systems and devices described above and is divided into the following subspecialties:
Subspecialties of Urology
Pediatric urologists are surgeons who can diagnose, treat, and manage urinary and genital problems in children.
The subspecialty of female urology is responsible for the diagnosis and treatment of urinary tract disorders, of which the most prevalent are; urinary incontinence, overactive bladder, pelvic organ prolapse, recurrent urinary tract infection, and pelvic pain.
Geriatric urology is that medical subspecialty that is responsible for studying and diagnosing diseases of the reproductive system of older adults.
Andrology is the branch of urology responsible for the study, investigation, and exploration of any aspect related to male sexual function and reproduction.
It is mainly responsible for problems related to erection, infertility, sexual impotence problems, prostatic tumors, both malignant and benign, adrenal, kidney and bladder tumors, etc.
It is that subspecialty of urology that is responsible for the study, diagnosis and treatment of diseases that occur forming urinary stones, such as concretions or stones.
Stones can form anywhere in the urinary tract, from the kidney chambers to the urethra, although they are usually the bladder, ureter, and kidney.
This subspecialty studies benign and malignant tumors, but paying special attention to malignant tumors (cancer) within the reproductive system of both sexes.
It is a minimally invasive surgical technique, through which, endoscopically, many diseases of the upper and lower urinary tract can be treated, from the urethra to the kidney.
Why is it important to visit the urologist?
Timely medical check-ups are the most effective way to prevent and diagnose any disease early.
But especially from the age of 40 or 45, men should go periodically to have an analysis and medical check-up at the urologist, since it is from these ages when diseases such as prostate cancer, benign prostate obstruction, sexual and scrotal or penile problems.
In our medical clinic we have specialized services in the treatment and timely diagnosis of prostate cancer and male sexual health, in addition to other general urology services for both men and women.
