3 Need-to-Know Facts about Urology

Urologists in Miami treat numerous conditions, ranging from kidney stones to sexual disorders and even cancer. Urology is a field of medicine that most people know little about, but urologists treat millions of patients a year and not only improve quality of life, but save lives as well. Here are 3 things you should know about Miami urology.


Men and Women

While it’s more common for men to be seen by a urologist, both men and women are routinely seen in urology practices. However, most urology practices have more than half, and sometimes close to 75%, of their patient makeup as men. This is because many of the conditions treated are specific to males, including enlarged prostates, erectile dysfunction, and prostate cancer. Children are also seen by urologists to address bed wetting and recurring urinary tract infections.

Treated Conditions

Urologists treat conditions and disorders that affect the ureter, kidneys, bladder, prostate, and urethra. These conditions may come with symptoms like painful or burning urination, blood in the urine, frequent urination, or difficulty urinating. These symptoms could indicate a number of conditions from an enlarged prostate, an infection, or trauma.

Kidney stones are also treated by a urologist as well as infections. Urologists may also diagnose kidney or bladder cancer and perform surgery to remove the cancerous tissue. These cancers are usually very treatable because they are often caught at an early stage. Urologists also diagnose and treat sexual disorders, which may be due to low testosterone, erectile dysfunction, or some other diseases that affect sexual function. A urologist may even be able to find the cause of infertility because of conditions that can damage sperm.

Prostate Cancer

Urologists treat many patients with prostate cancer as it is extremely common in men. In fact, some figures suggest that 1 in 6 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer (http://ugnm.com/urology/). Fortunately, prostate cancer can usually be treated effectively when diagnosed early. Some of the common symptoms of prostate cancer include trouble irritating, blood in the semen, erectile dysfunction, bone pain, less force in your urine stream, and pelvic discomfort. It’s important to see a urologist right away when experiencing these symptoms to diagnose exactly what’s causing the symptoms and to begin treatment.

The most revolutionary treatment for prostate cancer is high intensity focus ultrasound (HIFU), which received FDA approval in October 2015. Miami is home to Dr. George Suarez, the founder of Sonacare Medical HIFU company, and the world’s most experience HIFU physician with 15 years of having been performing the procedure and treated over three-thousand men.
