What is Urology?

Urology is the surgical specialty that focuses on the genitourinary tract of men and women, and on the reproductive system of men. Physicians specializing in the field of urology are called urologists and are trained to evaluate, diagnose, treat and manage patients with urological disorders. The organs covered by the specialty of urology include the kidneys, ureters, urinary bladder, urethra, and the male reproductive organs. Urology combines management of medical, or non-surgical, problems such as urinary infections and surgical problems such as the correction of congenital abnormalities and the surgical management of cancers.
