About Urology

Urology is a medical and 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, a knowledge of Internal Medicine, Pediatrics, Gynecology and other specialties is required by the Urologist because of the wide variety of clinical problems encountered.

Why would I need to see a Urologist?
There are many reasons a person may need to see a Urologist. Our Board-Certified Urologists are frequently asked to evaluate the following problems:

Benign prostatic hyperplasia Bladder stones Bladder cancer Epididymitis
Erectile dysfunction Hematuria Hydroceles Infertility
Interstitial cystitis Kidney cancer Kidney stone Overactive bladder
Prostatitis Prostate cancer Testicular cancer Varicoceles
Recurrent urinary tract infections

Vasectomy

Our office provides vasectomy procedures daily, though most are performed Thursdays and Fridays to allow for a weekend vasectomy recovery time - before returning to work the following week. Each year, between 500,000 and 600,000 men select vasectomy as the permanent birth control method of choice in their family. 


Did you know:

  • Vasectomy is considered nearly 100 percent effective, safe, and does not interfere with sexual pleasure.
  • The No-Scalpel Vasectomy (NSV) procedure was developed in the early 1970s in China by Dr. Li Shunqiang.
  • During the past few decades, over 15 million vasectomies have been performed around the world using the NSV technique.
  • No-scalpel vasectomy can be completed in about 15 - 20 minutes.
  • A vasectomy does not reduce a man’s sexual drive, virility or his ability to have or enjoy sex.
  • About 85 percent of health care insurance programs include coverage for the vasectomy procedure, so there may be little or no cost to you.
  • Most vasectomy procedures are performed by urologists; medical doctors who are specialists in the male and female urinary tract and the male reproductive organs.
  • Sterilization for a man (vasectomy) is significantly less expensive than for a woman (tubal ligation), which may be as much as five times more costly.

If you are considering having a vasectomy and still have questions, call one of our friendly staff. We are here to help!
