Urological Treatments & Services

Your urologist will create a treatment plan tailored to you, starting with conservative measures whenever possible. Ask about:

  • BOTOX injection therapy – Treats overactive bladder symptoms and incontinence by blocking some of the nerves to the bladder or sphincter muscles
  • Cryotherapy – Uses extreme cold to destroy cancer cells in the prostate
  • Intravesical therapy – Delivers medication directly to the bladder to relieve pain or treat cancer
  • Lifestyle changes, such as diet modification and smoking cessation
  • Lithotripsy – Uses shock waves to break up a kidney stone into tiny pieces
  • Neuromodulation – Improves bladder function by using mild electrical pulses to normalize nerve activity
  • Percutaneous tibial nerve stimulation (PTNS)
  • Sacral nerve stimulation (Medtronic InterStim®)
  • Physical therapy – Uses exercises and/or behavior modification to improve bladder control or pelvic pain
  • Prostatectomy – Removes cancerous prostate tissue
  • Vasectomy – Permanent contraception method that blocks the vas deferens to prevent the release of sperm

Minimally Invasive Procedures

Whenever possible, your physician will use minimally invasive techniques to treat your condition. If you’re a candidate for a minimally invasive procedure, you’ll benefit from less pain, a lower risk of complications and a quicker recovery. Take advantage of:

  • da Vinci Prostatectomy – Treats prostate cancer by using extremely precise robotic arms to remove cancerous cells
  • No-needle, no-scalpel vasectomy – Uses a local, spray-on anesthetic and a single puncture to block the vas deferens
