Men's Sexual Health

Our physicians specialize in men’s health, including sexual medicine, prosthetics, reconstruction and infertility.

  • Erectile Dysfunction
    • Erectile dysfunction is a common condition affecting men of all ages and becomes more common after age 40.

  • Peyronie’s Disease
    • Peyronie’s disease is a noncancerous condition resulting from a buildup of scar tissue in the penis that can interfere with your ability to have sexual intercourse.

  • Male Infertility
    • Infertility is defined as the inability to conceive after one year of unprotected intercourse. In couples that are having trouble conceiving, about 40% of the time there are factors associated with the man which contribute to their difficulties.

  • Penile Implants
    • A penile implant is a surgically implanted device intended to restore a man's erection when other options are either not effective or not preferred.

  • Low Testosterone
    • Decreased testosterone values happens with aging but can become a medical condition. Low testosterone can have significant effects on the male body, physically and mentally.

  • Vasectomy Reversal
    • Some men desire to reverse their vasectomy so they can father children again. Depending on the amount of time from the original vasectomy, a vasectomy reversal is often a very effective operation.

Urologic Oncology

Accounting for almost 20% of cancers worldwide, urologic cancers include malignancies of the prostate, bladder, kidney and testes.

  • Prostate Cancer
    • A cancer in a man's prostate, a small walnut-sized gland that produces seminal fluid. A man's prostate produces the seminal fluid that nourishes and transports sperm.
    • Symptoms include difficulty with urination, but sometimes there are no symptoms at all.
    • Some types of prostate cancer grow slowly. In some of these cases, monitoring is recommended. Other types are aggressive and require radiation, surgery, hormone therapy, chemotherapy, or other treatments.
  • Bladder Cancer
    • This form of cancer typically affects older adults. It’s usually diagnosed early when it’s still treatable. It’s likely to recur, so follow-up tests are recommended.
    • The most common symptom is blood in the urine.
    • Treatments include surgery, biological therapy and chemotherapy.
  • Testicular Cancer
    • A cancer in the male organs that make male hormones and sperm (testicles.)
    • Symptoms include a lump in either testicle and a feeling of heaviness in the scrotum.
    • Treatments include surgery, radiation and chemotherapy.
  • Renal Cell Cancer
    • A type of kidney cancer, most common in older men, that starts in the lining of small tubes in the kidney. Risk factors include smoking and obesity.
    • While often symptomless, symptoms can include flank pain, blood in the urine or a lump in the abdomen.
    • Treatment may include removing the entire kidney or its affected part. It may also include destroying the tumor with radiowaves or by freezing it.

General Urology

Our Urologists are board-certified medical and surgical specialists who diagnose and treat disorders of the kidneys and urinary system, as well as conditions affecting the male reproductive tract.

  • Kidney Stones
    • A small, hard deposit that forms in the kidneys and is often painful when passed.
      The most common symptom is severe pain, usually in the side of the abdomen that’s often associated with nausea.
    • Treatment includes pain relievers and drinking lots of water to help pass the stone.
    • Medical procedures may be needed to remove or break up larger stones.
  • Urinary Tract Infections
    • UTIs, an infection caused by bacteria in any part of the urinary system, including the kidneys, bladder or urethra.
    • Bladder infections may cause pelvic pain, increased urge to urinate, pain with urination, and blood in the urine.
    • Kidney infections may cause back pain, nausea, vomiting and fever.
    • UTIs are commonly treated with antibiotics.
  • Urinary Incontinence
    • This is a loss of bladder control, varying from a slight loss of urine after sneezing coughing or laughing to complete inability to control urination.
    • Common causes include UTIs, vaginal infection, constipation and some medications. When the problem persists, it could be due to weak bladder or pelvic floor muscles.
    • Treatment includes exercise to strengthen the pelvic floor, avoiding caffeine and alcohol, and retraining the bladder.
  • Overactive Bladder
    • A problem with the bladder function that causes the sudden need to urinate.
    • This happens mostly in women but may also occur in men.
    • Aging, an enlarged prostate and diabetes are all risk factors.
    • Treatments such as pelvic floor muscle exercises, medications and nerve stimulation can reduce or eliminate symptoms.
