What is Urology?

Urology is a surgical specialty which deals with diseases of the male and female urinary tract and the male reproductive organs. Although urology is classified as a surgical specialty, a knowledge of internal medicine, pediatrics, gynecology and other specialties is required by the urologist because of the wide variety of clinical problems encountered. In recognition of the wide scope of urology, the American Urological Association has identified seven subspecialty areas:

  • Pediatric Urology
  • Urologic Oncology (cancer)
  • Renal Transplantation
  • Male Infertility
  • Calculi (urinary tract stones)
  • Female Urology (urinary incontinence, pelvic outlet relaxation disorders)
  • Neurourology (voiding disorders, urodynamic evaluation of patients and erectile dysfunction or impotence)
