Why Urology?

Are you a medical student considering a specialty focus? Urology is a surgical specialty which deals with diseases of the male and female urinary tract and the male reproductive organs. Although urology is classified as a surgical specialty, knowledge of internal medicine, pediatrics, gynecology, and other specialties is required by the urologist due to the wide variety of clinical problems in patients.

  1. Pediatric Urology
  2. Urologic Oncology (cancer)
  3. Renal Transplantation
  4. Male Infertility
  5. Calculi (urinary tract stones)
  6. Female Urology (urinary incontinence and pelvic outlet relaxation disorders)
  7. Neurourology (voiding disorders, urodynamic evaluation of patients and erectile dysfunction or impotence).
