What is a Urologist?

A urologist is medical specialist involved in exploring, diagnosing and treating diseases of the urinary tract. They also specialise in the male reproductive system and occasionally carry out specialist surgery on the area. You’ll find urologists working in a variety of healthcare settings including private clinics and hospitals, as well as urology centres dedicated to issues around the urinary tract. They also care for problems with the kidneys, the ureter itself, the bladder, and the prostate gland. Because urology was the first surgical specialty to perfect minimally invasive treatments like keyhole surgery and robot-assisted operations, there are several minimally invasive techniques on the cards. These include cystoscopes and endoscopes, useful for taking out bladder tumours and dealing with kidney stones.

When to see a Urologist?

Your first stop with urology problems will be your family doctor. They’ll use their expertise to pin down whether you need to see a specialist. Bladder, urethra, ureter, kidney, and adrenal gland problems often occur in men, and disorders of the epididymis, penis, prostate, seminal vesicles, and testes are all male-related. For women, the reason behind a urology referral is often post-pregnancy bladder weakness or the collapse of the pelvic organs. Children are frequently referred to a Melbourne urologist thanks to the common abnormal urinary tract problems that can make them wet the bed.

What conditions does a Urologist treat?

A urologist treats a very wide range of issues around this area of the body:

  • Bladder Cancer
  • Prostate Cancer
  • Blood In Urine (Haematuria)
  • Testicular Pain
  • Bladder Pain
  • Priapism
  • Male Hypogonadism
  • Peyronie’s Disease

What procedures can you find at a Urology clinic? 

  • Vasectomy (Male Sterilization)
  • PSA
  • Prostate Cancer
  • Female And Reconstructive Urology
  • Ureteroscopy
  • Green Light Laser Prostatectomy
  • Rigid & Flexible Ureterorenoscopy And Laser Fragmentation Of Stones
  • Bladder Instillation
  • Holmium Laser Enucleation Of The Prostate (HoLEP)
  • Micro-Surgical Sperm Retrieval (MESA)
  • Vasectomy Reversal
  • Inflatable Penile Prosthesis
  • Orchidectomy
  • Hydrocelectomy
  • Prostatectomy (TURP)
  • Transurethral Resection Of A Bladder Tumour (TURBT)
  • Robotic Pyeloplasty
  • Robotic Cystectomy
  • Nerve Sparing Prostatectomy
  • Prostate Biopsy
  • Blue Light Cystoscopy
  • Testicular Sperm Extraction (TESE)
  • Transrectal Ultrasound (TRUS)
  • Orchiopexy For Undescended Testicle (UDT)
  • Video Consultation

What subspecialties are included in urology?  

Some Australian urologists treat general diseases of the urinary tract, some decide to specialise in female urology, male infertility, neurology, paediatric urology, or urologic oncology, which concentrates on urinary system cancers.

What should you expect at a urology clinic in Australia?

Your chosen urologist will read through your medical records then ask you about your medical history, sometimes your family history. It’s likely they’ll need to make a careful physical examination, and maybe order some tests. Imaging tests like CT scans, MRI scans and ultrasound scans are common, as is a procedure involving a cystoscope, whose tiny camera reveals what’s going on inside you. You might be asked to give a urine sample for testing in a lab, to check for bacterial infection or disease. They may use a biopsy to see if there’s cancer present, or use something called urodynamic testing to establish how quickly your urine flows, as well as checking in case any of it is left behind in the bladder. At the end of their investigations you’ll likely be recommended treatment to manage the condition or referred for surgery.
