Understanding the Urology Medical Services Field
Why See A Urologist
Some people believe that urologists are doctors for men; however, urologists specialize in cancer, women’s urology, and issues children may have, like bedwetting. Often, men see a urologist for issues with infertility, the male reproductive system, sexual health or dysfunction, prostate, kidney stones, or for other issues pertaining to the urinary system.
Anyone suffering from issues pertaining to the kidneys and bladder see a urologist and/or a nephrologist.
While women may elect to see a gynecologist for issues pertaining to pelvic floor prolapse, for example, a urologist who specializes in women’s health brings expertise for such conditions.
