Urologists are medical doctors who specialize in the diagnosis
and treatment of diseases of the urinary system in men and women and disorders
of the male reproductive system.
Urologists can prescribe
medicines, perform surgery, and treat urination problems, such as problems
holding urine (incontinence) and tumors or stones in the urinary system. They
treat problems of the male reproductive system, such as impotence (erectile
dysfunction). Urogynecologists specialize in treating urinary problems
involving the female reproductive system. And pediatric urologists specialize
in diagnosing and treating urinary problems in children.
Urologists can be board-certified through the American Board of Urology,
which is recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties.
