Urology is the branch of medicine that focuses on disturbances of the male reproductive system, and the female and male urinary tract.
A skilled and experienced urologist at Northway Medical Centre prescribes tests and examinations that are required to make an accurate diagnosis. During the first consultations, a doctor may perform an ultrasound examination of kidneys or the prostate gland, which provide valuable information about the patient’s health. Examinations can also include the extraction of a tissue from the prostate gland for biopsy, prostate secretion for examination under a microscope, a PSA test, and collection of urethral discharge. If necessary, a doctor will plan surgical treatment.
Men are at risk of developing various prostate gland disorders. Most common disorders include chronic prostatitis marked by frequent and painful urination and benign prostate hyperplasia marked by non-malign proliferation of the cellular elements of the prostate (which cause disturbance of urination). Erectile dysfunction, bladder control problems, and prostate cancer are also on the list of common urological problems.
A professional urologist at Northway Medical Centre will make an accurate diagnosis of health disorders with the help of the most up-to-date medical equipment and prescribe effective treatment.
