Urology Department in Aryan Hospital
Urology is a surgical specialty which deals with the diseases of the female as well as male urinary-tract system and the reproductive system of males. In male, the urinary system coincides with the reproductive system, and in women, the urinary tract opens into the vulva. In both categories, the urinary and reproductive tracts are close together, and disorders of one affect the other.
Urinary tract is an infection mostly caused by microbes such as fungi, bacteria, virus and involves the kidneys, adrenal glands (glands located above the kidney that releases hormones), ureters (tube connecting the kidneys to the bladder), urinary bladder, and urethra (the tube that passes urine out of the body from the bladder), and the male reproductive organs involve testes, epididymis, vas deferens, seminal vesicles, and prostate. Some diseases that affect the female reproductive system are endometriosis, breast cancer, uterine cancer, and ovarian cancer.
Most of the common urologic issues are urinary incontinence, enlarged prostate problems in men, kidney stones, and urinary tumors. People specializing in this surgery are called Urologists who are trained to diagnose, detect and treat this group of disorders and diseases.
In case of certain conditions such as cancer of the urinary tract, urologists may need to work together with oncologists and radiotherapists. They might also be required to collaborate with nephrologists who deal with kidney conditions, gynecologists who deal with female reproductive system and endocrinologists who deal with the conditions of the endocrine system and hormone disorders.
Urologists can also collaborate with practitioners of pediatric surgery. Ultrasound is an imaging tool that is often used in urology department to examine the kidneys, the bladder, and many others. It helps in diagnosing many conditions like tumors, cysts, kidney stones, abnormal movement of the bladder and urethra.
