About Our Field of Urology

The field of urology embraces the study, diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the genitourinary tract in men, women and children. Urologists are first and foremost-surgeons, although strides in urologic science have enabled urologists to treat an ever-increasing number of patients non-surgically, within an office setting. We have witnessed and continue to see advancements and improvements in virtually every aspect of our field, medical and surgical, and therefore feel that urology is certainly one of the more exciting and innovative medical specialties today.
