What are Urology Services?
Urology is known as the medical and surgical specialty that focuses on disorders of men’s and women’s urinary tracts, and on the reproductive system of males. The urinary and reproductive tracts are closely linked, and Disorders of one part of urological system can often affect other areas, because the urinary and reproductive tracts are closely linked. The organs addressed within urologic medicine include the kidneys, adrenal glands, ureters, urinary bladder, urethra and the male reproductive organs.
One of the most serious urological disorders, prostate cancer, is the second most common type of cancer found in American men, right behind skin cancer.
