Our Specialized Care
Our Specialized Care
St. Luke’s Center for Urology offers experience and compassion in diagnosing and treating male and female urologic conditions. While surgery is an important component in treating some urologic diseases and conditions, we offer many minimally invasive and non-surgical forms of treatments as well. Conditions we treat include:
Benign Prostatic Enlargement (BPH)
BPH develops when changing hormone levels cause the prostate to grow larger. This often begins around age 50. The enlarged prostate can block the urethra and press on the bladder causing urinary problems. Read more about prostate problems and symptoms.
When you are incontinent, you can’t always control the release of urine. You may leak urine or you may not be able to “hold” your urine until you can get to a bathroom. This happens because certain parts of the urinary system aren’t working properly. Incontinence can be caused by a number of factors and treatments can range from exercises to surgery. Read more about the types of incontinence and treatments available for men and women.
Problems emptying the bladder can be caused by Benign Prostatic Enlargement, obstructions in the urinary system, bladder muscle failure, nerve damage, and even stress or neurological problems. We can help you find the cause and determine the right treatment for you.
Kidney stones are made up of chemical crystals that separate out from urine and collect in the kidney. They may stay in the kidney or move into the urinary tract. Symptoms often depend on your stone’s size and location, but can include sudden severe pain, nausea, burning urination, and/or bloody urine. Read more about kidney stones and treatment options.
Sexual dysfunction is common in men and women, but it is a topic that is often difficult to discuss. Fortunately, most cases of sexual dysfunction are treatable, so it is important to share your concerns with a doctor trained in this area. At St. Luke’s Center for Urology, we can help diagnose the cause of dysfunction and then determine the best course of treatment for you.
Urinary Tract Infections
Most urinary tract infections are caused by uncontrolled bacterial growth in the urinary tract. These infections affect both men and women. They vary greatly in cause, symptoms, and treatment but can usually be detected by a simple urine culture performed in our offices.
We also offer:
Minimally-Invasive & Robotically-Assisted Surgery Using the daVinci Surgical System
Read more about this state-of-the-art robotic technology that allows our doctors to perform precise surgical procedures through tiny incisions.
Urologic Cancer Surgery & Medical Treatment
Our physicians are highly trained in detecting and treating cancers of the prostate, bladder and kidneys. We are committed to providing our patients the highest quality of care and support.
Vasectomies & Vasectomy Reversals
A vasectomy is a simple, safe procedure that makes a man sterile. It is the most effective birth control method for men. Vasectomies can sometimes be reversed, restoring the flow of sperm out of the body. Our physicians can perform both procedures after consulting with you.
