Urologic Conditions


 

Urologic Cancers

Any segment of the genitourinary system is capable of developing a cancerous tumor. Most commonly we help diagnose and treat patients with prostate, kidney, bladder and testicular cancers. Prostate cancer is the most common malignancy in men, with a yearly estimated incidence of 230,000 new cases. However, bladder and kidney cancer are also commonly seen, and affect both men and women. Treatment options for urologic cancers range from minimally invasive procedures to radiation to surgery to remove the organ, depending on the situation. An in-depth discussion will help us work together to decide which option is right for you.

Kidney Stones

A commonly found problem, especially in the warm climates of South Florida, kidney stones can be a source of pain ranging from mild aching to severe, intolerable pain. The pain can present anywhere in the back, flank, abdomen and groin/testicles. Many will be able to pass by themselves has given time and lots of fluid. Unfortunately, those too large to pass or causing fevers, intolerable pain or vomiting will require surgery. Luckily we have advanced to the point that the vast majority of stones can be effectively treated with only external (outside the body) sound waves or with a camera and laser.


Incontinence

Incontinence, or the inability to hold urine without it coming out of its own accord, is not just a female problem. Many men also have difficulties with urinary control. Leakage may occur due to a weakness of the pelvic floor and urethra, a bladder that has spasms, a bladder that is overly full of urine and can’t be emptied, or a combination of the above causes.

 

Infertility

A growing proportion of the population are having difficulties achieving a successful pregnancy. In 70% of these cases, a male factor may be at least part of the problem. Our workup and the available treatment options have helped large numbers of people to have the child they always dreamed of.
