What Is a Urologist?

Urologists are medical experts in urinary tract disorders. These healthcare professionals use medical and minimally invasive surgical treatments and may work in tandem with your internist, OB/GYN, pediatrician, or another medical specialist. They diagnose conditions through biopsies, cystoscopies, digital rectal exams, prostate ultrasounds, urine tests, and other procedures. These diagnostic procedures aim to treat many urologic conditions, from kidney stones to painful urination and male sexual health concerns.

Some of the most common procedures performed are:

  • Botox injections
  • Brachytherapy
  • Cystoscopy
  • ESWL
  • Greenlight laser
  • InterStim therapy
  • Kidney stone surgery
  • Laparoscopic nephrectomy
  • Endoscopic laser lithotripsy
  • Prostatectomy
  • Robotic surgery
  • Scrotal surgery
  • Sling procedure
  • SpaceOAR
  • Suprapubic catheter insertion & change
  • Transrectal ultrasound-guided biopsy (TRUS)
  • Transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP)
  • Ureteroscopy
  • UroLift
  • Transurethral resection of bladder cancer
  • Vasectomy

Should I See a Urologist?

While a primary care provider may be sufficient to clear up a mild urinary problem such as a urinary tract infection (UTI), they may refer you to a urologist if symptoms do not improve or you need more specialized care. Some patients need to see both a urologist and another specialist for specific conditions, such as an oncologist for prostate or other urologic cancers.

You should see a urologist as soon as possible if you have any of the following concerns:

  • Blood in urine
  • Kidney stones
  • Prostate problems
  • Elevated PSA blood test
  • Urinary urgency
  • Pain or burning while urinating
  • Difficulty urinating
  • Urine leakage
  • Weak urine flow
  • A lump in the testicle
  • Difficulty getting or sustaining an erection
