What is urology?

What is a urologist?

 

A urologist is a doctor specializing in disorders of the male and female urinary systems and male reproductive systems. Urologists must have a broad understanding of internal medicine, gynecology, pediatrics, and other disciplines due to the extensive spectrum of clinical problems they encounter. Urologists are also qualified surgeons, and many urologic health issues can be treated surgically. Urologists must meet specific training and examination standards to be certified by the American Board of Urology.

 

A urologist and a nephrologist are not the same, even though they frequently collaborate on patient care.

 

Nephrology is a subspecialty of medicine that focuses on the function and illness of the kidneys. A nephrologist treats patients with diabetes, while a urologist treats patients with kidney stones or kidney cancer and offers surgical options. Nephrology is a non-surgical specialty. Hence nephrologists are not surgeons.

 

What are the subspecialty areas of urology?

 

Urology is a surgical discipline that contracts with the male reproductive system. The American Urological Association has defined eight specialty areas:

 

  • Erectile dysfunction (impotence)
  • Female urology
  • Male infertility
  • Neurourology
  • Pediatric urology (Urology Austin does not treat this area.)
  • Renal transplantation
  • Urinary tract stones
  • Urologic oncology
