Urology is a specialist medical practice that is focused on the diseases of kidneys, bladder, prostate, male and female urinary system and in men, the genitourinary tract.
Urology includes issues such as incontinence, cancer treatment, impotence and fertility. According to the British Association of Urological Surgeons, one quarter of all surgical referrals to hospital are for urological conditions.
A urologist is a doctor who has specialised in this field, often training as a urologist for more than seven years and commonly using advanced medical technology such as lasers and robotics.

Benign prostatic (BPH)
An enlarged prostate (also called Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia, BPH) occurs when a man’s prostate gland slowly grows bigger as he ages. More than half of men over age 60 have this condition, also called benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). Some men have symptoms and others don’t. The exact causes are unknown, but one thing is sure: BPH is not cancer and it does not lead to cancer. The prostate sits below the bladder and produces fluid for semen.

Urinary Bladder cancer
Bladder is a hollow organ located in your lower abdomen and its function is to store the urine. However, bladder cancer is a common type of cancer that begins in the cells of the bladder and growth of abnormal tissue, known as a tumour, develops in the bladder lining. In some cases, the tumour spreads into the bladder muscle.
Treatment will be based upon your stage of the cancer and the symptoms you’re experiencing.Which can include surgery to remove the tumour from the bladder or be exposed to chemotherapy and immunotherapy to attack the cancer cells.
Male infertility is often related to the production or motility (ability to swim) of the sperm. Through a combination of semen analysis, physical examination and other tests, we are able to identify its causes to determine optimal solutions for every case.
Cystocele (fallen bladder)
Anterior prolapse, also known as a cystocele, occurs when the supportive tissue between a woman’s bladder and her vaginal wall dilates and expands, allowing the bladder to protrude toward the vagina. An anterior prolapse is also called a prolapsed bladder.
Stretching the muscles that support the pelvic organs may cause frontal to prolapse. Such tension occurs during vaginal delivery, chronic constipation, severe coughing, or carrying heavyweights. An anterior prolapse also tends to cause postmenopausal problems when estrogen levels decrease.
For slight or moderate anterior prolapse, non-surgical treatment is often effective. In more severe cases, surgery may be necessary to keep the vagina and other pelvic organs in their correct positions.
Urinary tract infections (UTIs)
About 50% of women will get a urinary tract infection, or UTI, at some point in life. It happens when germs infect the system that carries urine out of the body — the kidneys, bladder, and the tubes that connect them. Bladder infections are common and usually not serious if treated promptly. But if the infection spreads to the kidneys, it can cause more serious illness.
The bladder is a muscular organ located in your pelvic area, which stores urine. The bladder has some internal muscles that contract and allow the flow of the urine through the urethra to the exterior. Overactive bladder is a common condition in which you might feel a sudden urge to urinate, leading to the involuntary loss of urine.
Sexually- transmitted disease:
Men are often reluctant to see a doctor regularly about their sexual health. However early diagnosis and preventative medicine can greatly reduce complications resulting from sexually transmitted diseases (STDs).
Unlike women, some men who are infected with sexually transmitted diseases might not show any symptoms of the disease. This leads them to not realize that they are infected, and as a result they don’t seek medical care, or worse, spreading it to their partners. Nevertheless, the lack of symptoms doesn’t mean that the infection or disease is not affecting their health.
Interstitial Cystitis is also known as Painful Bladder Syndrome or Bladder Pain Syndrome. It is a chronic condition that causes bladder pressure, bladder pain, and sometimes pelvic pain. With interstitial cystitis, these signals get mixed up — you feel the need to urinate more often and with smaller volumes of urine than most people.
Interstitial cystitis most often affects women and can have a long-lasting impact on quality of life. Although there’s no cure, medications and other therapies may offer relief.
