Urology

Urology focuses on the urinary tract, as well as the kidneys, adrenal glands, bladder, urethra, and the male reproductive organs. Our consultant urologists are able to treat a wide variety of urinary problems and work together to assess who will best be able to treat you.

Urology refers to the management of conditions than can affect your bladder and prostate. Your prostate is small gland that generates a fluid to help create semen. However, prostate problems are common and often affect men over the age of 50. Your prostate can become enlarged (prostate enlargement) or swollen due to inflammation (prostatitis). An enlarged prostate can put pressure on your bladder and urethra (the tube that allows urine to leave your body).  

Bladder problems can also impact your ability to urinate. If you’re suffering from a urinary tract infection or bladder stones, you might experience blood in your urine and pain while urinating. We are proud to facilitate specialist urologists, who can help assess your symptoms and help maintain the health of your bladder or prostate. Our urology specialists will perform tests to diagnose your condition and recommend treatments.  

The most common types of bladder and prostrate problems you might need treatment for include:

Reversing a vasectomy: A vasectomy is a permanent procedure that prevents you from having children. It involves cutting the tubes that carry sperm from your testicles to form semen. A vasectomy reversal may be able to reverse the procedure.

Urinary tract infections (UTIs)
: These are infections usually caused by faecal bacteria entering your urinary tract. It can cause a burning sensation while urinating and an increased need to urinate. A cystoscopy can be carried out to identify the cause of recurring UTIs.

Benign prostate enlargement (BPE): This refers to an enlarged prostate. It can lead to difficulty urinating and an increased urge to urinate. A trans-urethral resection of the prostate (TURP) can treat an enlarged prostate.

Urethral stricture: This refers to the narrowing of your urethra — the tube that allows urine to leave your body. It can cause recurring UTIs and reduce the flow of your urine. A urethrotomy can be performed to treat a urethral stricture.
