Learn to Recognize the Symptoms of Urological Problems
Urology is a specialized area of medicine that focuses on the urinary tracts of male and female patients. There’s no telling when a urological problem might form inside of a person’s urinary tract. Although they typically happen in older people, they can also occur in younger people.
The most common urological health conditions and diseases are associated with the kidneys, ureters, prostate, penis, testes, vagina and bladder. You can recognize the symptoms and risk factors to determine whether you or a loved one might have a urological problem.
These symptoms include the following:
- Incontinence (involuntary defecation and/or urination)
- Urination difficulties (painful urination or the inability to urinate)
- Blood in the urine
- Gentile pain
- Lower back pain
Pay attention to these symptoms. If you ignore them, they might result in a bacterial bladder infection or infertility. It won’t take long after that until further health issues to develop. Don’t let this happen. It’s easy to treat the symptoms before they progress into something worse.
You probably have a lot of questions or concerns, and our urological team is here to address them for you. Call us (561) 461-8001 to schedule an appointment and meet with a qualified urologist or practitioner about your specific urological issues.
The Types of Urological Treatments Available
Our patients come to us with a variety of different urological conditions. Some of the most common urological treatments available at our facility include:
Urethroplasty – A woman might need urethroplasty if the walls of her urethra are damaged or defective. Urethral stricture surgery or some other urethral stricture treatment will be required to remedy the problem. Urethroplasty targets and repairs the urethral stricture directly.
Bladder Augmentation Surgery – People suffering from urinary incontinence might need bladder augmentation or bladder replacement surgery. Bladder augmentation will be the first choice, because it’s the least complex of the two surgeries. When you receive a bladder augmentation, the surgeon will basically expand the size of your bladder by taking tissue from your intestines and adding it to your bladder. That way, you can hold more urine and reduce your incontinence. If the bladder is diseased or injured, the bladder may need to be replaced.
Erectile Dysfunction Treatment – As men age, they have a higher risk of experiencing erectile dysfunction. Our erectile dysfunction doctors specialize in a variety of erectile dysfunction treatment options, including penis pumps, medication and surgery. The doctors will determine which treatment is right for you based on the specific cause of your erectile dysfunction.
Penile Implant Surgery – If all other erectile dysfunction treatment options have failed, then penile implant surgery may be the last resort. The surgeon implants a prosthetic device inside the scrotum and penis to help the latter stay erect and perform sexually without any setbacks. The effects of penile implants usually last for up to 20 years in most men.
Urinary Incontinence Treatment – Urinary incontinence is another name for involuntary urination. It’s when you urinate involuntarily and can’t control it. As you can imagine, this can become a real inconvenience for those who suffer from it. Most cases of urinary incontinence can be treated with urinary incontinence surgery or stress incontinence treatment. Some of these treatments are gender-specific. If you’re a man, they might involve male continence devices and male urge incontinence treatment. If you’re a woman, you might need a female urinary incontinence device. These devices can help you regain control of your urination without embarrassing yourself in public.
Artificial Urinary Sphincter Surgery – When a patient has severely stressed urinary incontinence, they may require a surgically implanted artificial urinary sphincter. The artificial urinary sphincter does not replace the natural urinary sphincter, but rather acts as a supplement for its functionality. It does this by helping the natural sphincter to restrict the flow of urine that comes out of the bladder.
Enlarged Prostate Surgery – Some older men experience an enlargement of their prostate glands as they get older. If your prostate is enlarged, it may cause problems for your kidneys, bladder, or urinary tract. Enlarged prostate surgery fixes these problems so that you can have some relief in your urinary tract and urinate comfortably again. Medication is another form of enlarged prostate treatment that might be recommended. We’ll know more after we evaluate the current condition of your enlarged prostate.
Low Testosterone Treatment – Reduced levels of testosterone are common in men as they get older. Low testosterone can cause erectile dysfunction, low sex drive, depression, insomnia, fatigue, low endurance, and cognitive decline. Our urologists can help you manage and treat your low testosterone problem by helping your body generate more testosterone again.
