Definition of Urology
Urology is a medical practice dedicated to the treatment of disorders and diseases related to the male and female genito-urinary organs, including the kidney, ureters, bladder, prostate and genitalia. Problems in these areas are common and new medical technology continues to offer an expanding array of effective treatments.
What is a Urologist?
A Urologist is a physician who has completed a certified residency training program. A board certified Urologist has successfully completed oral and written exams conducted by the American Board of Urology. Urologists must repeat certification exams every 10 years. They have specialized knowledge and skill with regard to problems of the male and female urinary tract and the male reproductive organs. Although Urology is classified as a surgical subspecialty, its practice requires knowledge of internal medicine, pediatrics, gynecology, and other specialties.
