What is a Urologist


Urology is a field of medicine that focuses on the health of the urinary system. A urologist is the provider that would treat you if you had any urinary tract conditions. Urologists can treat the kidneys, ureters, bladder, urethra and adrenal glands. Patients are often referred to a urologist by a primary care provider when they need additional treatment.



Urologists treat a number of conditions such as cancer, prostate gland enlargement, erectile dysfunction, infertility, interstitial cystitis, kidney disease, kidney stones, prostatitis, urinary tract infections, varicoceles, bladder prolapse and overactive bladder. It is important to see a urologist if you have urinary issues because they have knowledge on how to treat these conditions effectively. Campbell Medical Group Health Urology Department treats both men and women.



When do you know it is time to see a urologist? See a urologist if you are experiencing urinary symptoms such as blood in urine, frequent need to urinate, pain in lower back, pain or burning during urination, trouble urinating, urine leakage or weak urine flow. Primary care providers can treat some urinary conditions such as urinary tract infections, but may need to refer to a urologist when treatment is not working, or it is a serious condition that needs intervention and observation.


Urology can be a medical specialty that is often forgotten about, however it is very important to living a healthy and functional life. Urologists can treat conditions that are life altering. With the proper treatment plans, patients can see great improvement in their symptoms and improve their overall quality of life. There is no specific age that someone might need to see a urologist. Often urinary issues will arise as you age, however, younger patients can also develop urinary diseases.
